The day after

We had a nice Thanksgiving Day feast with friends and family yesterday. Dad and Hilda and Jim and Jennifer came over for dinner. We had ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, biscuits and green beans. And some yummy wine and sparkling wine.
For dessert Jacob and Aileen and Angie and Joe joined us. We had my homemade pumpkin pie, which I have to say turned out pretty well, chocolate pie, blackberry pie and chocolate pecan pie. Yum!
It was a nice day and evening. It was a good time.
For some reason I am really tired this morning. I think I got too much sleep. I am trying to convince myself to get dressed and go to the gym and hit Michaels with my coupon. I wonder if it is less crazy now?
As you all start your shopping for the season think about buying an extra pack of Christmas/holiday cards to send to a recovering soldier.
The following information was provided to me by The Ships Project:

Holiday cards for Recovering American Soldiers should be mailed to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

All cards must be postmarked no later than Dec. 10. Cards should not
be mailed or delivered to Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). If you receive a message (usually via email) that WRAMC will accept cards and letters address to "any soldier" or "any recovering warrior" (or some variation on that theme), DON'T BELIEVE IT! Mail that arrives at Walter Reed without the NAME of a specific patient is discarded.

On behalf of my colleagues at Pitney Bowes Postage and the American Red Cross, thank you for all of your support in helping to spread the word about the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program.

We would like you to know that we’ve not only reached the goal of delivering one million cards to US service members, veterans and military families, but we surpassed it! And it’s all because people like you and your blog readers who got involved. View the following video for more details and a personal message of thanks from all of us: http://blip.tv/file/1643672/.

We could not have done it without you.
