BIRD is the word!
Yesterday, I purchased my Thanksgiving (18 lb.) turkey, and all the stuff I will need for the fixin's. My Christmas shopping is all done and I will be getting everything wrapped within the next couple of weeks. Way early, I know, but that's just the way I am. Just ask DKW.
I tend to do this with most things. Get it done early and not worry about it. The problem is, my memory is not the greatest following a bad motorcycle accident in June 2010. SOOOO, in an effort to stay ahead I make notes, lists, etc. But, sometimes, I still forget. So sometimes I end up with extras of things. But with food stuff, its things that don't spoil, or I can freeze it. For example, I have 2 unopened jars of dill relish, 3 packs of weiners, 3 containers of garlic salt, etc. I will use it, but now I'm making myself double-check my grocery list before making purchases. Only got so much storage - ya know.
Okay, I'm kind of wandering. The Starkville High Yellow Jackets won at Warren Central (in Vicksburg, MS) on Friday by a 28-10 score to go 9-1 on the year (6-0 in their region). Next Friday, is the final regular season game (at home) against Clinton High. Clinton High (7-3, 5-1) is the team my grandson plays for. The winner gets first place in the region for the playoffs. If the loser is Starkville, they will be the #2 seed, If its Clinton - they get the #3 seed and Warren Central the #2 seed. Whatever happens, Madison Central is the #4 seed. Got that? Don't worry - It's okay. You can print out the playoff brackets this time next week.
Miss. State had a BYE this weekend, but will play Thursday night (11/5) at Missouri on the SEC Network.
Everyone have a great week.
