Well, duh.

ME: "I'm going to run these movies back. You need anything?"

HUBBY: "No, I don't think so."

ME: "Okay."

I walk out the front door with the movies in my hand, turn around and walk back in and grab my cell phone.

HUBBY: "What do you need that for?"

ME: "In case you change your mind about needing something."

HUBBY: "I won't. I'm pretty decisive."

ME: "Well, then I might get lost."

I am less than a few blocks away from the house when my cell phone beeps in a new text message. It's from my hubby.

HUBBY TXT: "Take a right then right then right right back to me"

ME TXT: "Thats the sweetest thing u have said in a while."

HUBBY TXT: "Well i luv u duh"


When I got home and we were snuggled up on the couch, I turned to my dear hubby and said, "Oh, by the way, that was really sweet what you said."

He said, "Yeah, I know." and then gave me a kiss.

I looked at him and said, "You know I'm gonna blog about this, right?"

He just rolled his eyes. How cute!

A story on the news wires had these suggestions for Thanksgiving ideas; some made me think of you and/or seemed like something that would be fun to try or blog about.

If Thanksgiving is potluck, ask friends and family to print out and bring along multiple copies of their recipes. Snap photos of each person with their dish as they arrive. Print and paste into small, blank scrapbooks guests can take home.

Games are hugely popular on Thanksgiving, and not just with kids. Set up game stations, assign groups and play round-robin style throughout the evening. Members of each group move together from table to table, carrying on play in progress.

Thankful centerpieces.
Forget the cornucopia, floral or turkey table decorations. Use vases holding bare branches or wire stems instead. Place blank stick-on labels around the table with colorful fine-point markers. Ask each guest to write down what they're thankful for (one thought per label) and decorate with markers. Attach to centerpieces and explain while eating.

Give the gift of listening.
The oral history project StoryCorps encourages people to record an interview with somebody they care about: an elderly relative, a guest with a cool job, a military veteran. Pack up tapes or discs for guests in festive wrap or jewel boxes to mark the first annual National Day of Listening planned for Nov. 28 -- Black Friday -- sponsored by StoryCorps, National Public Radio and the Library of Congress.
