1. My ds wakes up around 7:00 AM every day. There is no sleeping in for me ever.

2. No

3. Iíve gone shopping on Black Friday but never on Thanksgiving. I think itís terrible stores are opening up on Thanksgiving. I feel bad for the employees that have to work. No amount of savings can make me want to miss Thanksgiving with my family.

4. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving we have a half day of school.

5. Pumpkin or pecan

4. Thanksgiving break starts in the middle of the day before Thanksgiving.

1. I may wake up at the same time but will fall back asleep for an hour. (I get up at 3:45am during the week to exercise - not getting up that early on the weekend). I do try to take a nap on Saturdays).

2. We do a "favorite things" gift exchange with my team. There are a total of 4 of us.

3. Never on Thanksgiving but I have on Black Friday - more so when the DS's were little. This was before they were open all night. They would open at 5am and it was a big deal. Sometimes now I'll go to Barnes & Noble or Target but not till 9am on BF.

4. We have the day before Thanksgiving off.

5. Pumpkin!

1. Do you sleep later on weekends compared to weekdays? Fpr sure! I don't set an alarm on the weekends unless I have to be up for something, but even then, it's usually later than when I have to get up on a school day.
2. Do you do any holiday gift exchanges with your coworkers? I am at a new school. We are voting to decide if we will. There was a Google Poll with choices of different things we could do for a gift exchange (white elephant, Christmas ornament, wine, gift card, no exchange, etc.) The results should be in next week sometime.
3. Have you ever gone to a store to shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday? Yes, but not when there are crowds.
4. When do you start your Thanksgiving break? We don't get out until 11:30 on that Wednesday.
5. What is your favorite kind of pie? Apple or my great aunt's chocolate pie!

1. YES! I am not a morning person. DD has an event today and I had to get up at 7. I am not happy.
2. We usually do a secret santa. I participate about once every 3 years. I give small gifts to my team and a nicer gift to my assistant.
3. I won't shop on Thanksgiving. Crazy people Black Friday shopping does not sound like fun. I will sometimes go out later in the day when it's calmed down a bit.
4. We're off on Wednesday
5. It depends on my mood. Oh, to go back in time and have one of my grandmother's chocolate or butterscotch pies!

1. I sleep in once in a blue moon. I donít set an alarm and wake about the same time each day (4:30). I like getting up early. I can slowly get ready. On weekends I can be even slower, although I usually go do my water therapy exercises at the gym.

2. Not usually.

3. Both in the past. Now I stay home.

4. Break begins the first Monday of Thanksgiving week.

5. Pumpkin!!

1. Yes! Love it - about 2 hours later!

2. Used to, but I'm in a different school now so not this year.

3. Yes, but not anymore. Not worth it.

4. We're off that whole week.

5. Key lime

1. Do you sleep later on weekends compared to weekdays?
I try to--doesn't always happen. This morning I slept in until 7:20 a.m. That's kind of late for me.

2. Do you do any holiday gift exchanges with your coworkers?
Yes--I exchange gifts with my two teammates and another teacher. I also give gifts to a few other people (paras, Title I teacher, etc) who help me with my students.

3. Have you ever gone to a store to shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday?
I went once late on Thanksgiving (10 p.m. or so). Wasn't worth it. However, my two daughters and I believe that Black Friday is a major holiday and we have a blast shopping the day away and spending time together.

4. When do you start your Thanksgiving break?
We have W/TH/F off that week.

5. What is your favorite kind of pie?
Butterscotch, coconut meringue

1. Not usually, although I sit around and drink coffee longer before I get moving.
2. No, thank God. I used to participate in a Secret Santa exchange. In theory it was optional but people who didn't participate were judged pretty harshly. I hated it, though. Selecting gifts, remembering to get them to work and finding a secret way to deliver them....it all made me anxious and irritable. And it all felt like a competition: who was the best gift giver. Ugh.
3. No, never. You'd have to pay me to go into a store on Black Friday.
4. We have the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off.
5. Pumpkin

1. Do you sleep later on weekends compared to weekdays?
The joy of being retired is waking up whenever I want. Today is was 6:15. Yesterday it was 8:00.

2. Do you do any holiday gift exchanges with your coworkers?
My grade level team would. I still exchange with one teacher who became my BF.

3. Have you ever gone to a store to shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday?
A Bazillion years ago when youngest DD was 5 months old, I ventured out and got a ton of shopping done. It wasnít as insane as it is now.

4. When do you start your Thanksgiving break?
We used to get the entire week off.

5. What is your favorite kind of pie?
Hmmmm..not a pie fan. I used to like buttermilk pie. In truth, I just like pie filling.

1. Sure. I don't set the alarm for 5:15 on the weekends but am usually up by 7 or 7:30

2. I did a long time ago but the group I'm with now doesn't exchange gifts at all.

3. When my kids were young I did a couple of times. Haven't in years.

4. We are off the entire week.

5. Not a big pie person but I like pecan and pumpkin.

1. Absolutely! My alarm goes off at 5:30 on weekdays and I sleep until about 8/8:30 on most weekends.

2. I exchange with the ladies on my team (3 teachers).

3. I have shopped on Black Friday. Went to the mall last year with my sister & family - they wanted to shop, but I didn't really buy anything.

4. Our break starts on Thanksgiving day. No real break other than having that Friday off. We get out early on Wednesday, but that's it.

5. My mom recently introduced me to strawberry rhubarb and I'm obsessed with it!

1. I try to but often feel like I am programmed so thoroughly to wake up t 5 am that my body just refuses to hear that its Saturday.

2. I get a gift card for my grade level partners but since we added a 3rd teacher I think I'll have to stop. I cant afford any more gifts at that time of year.

3. I always used to-my son always wanted the hot new toy that was on sale and I was broke and needed the bargain. Not any more though. In fact I try to be almost done shopping by then.

4. The Monday before Thanksgiving-I love that we get the whole week off because its right after report cards and late night parent teacher conferences. After that I need a vacation.

5. Pumpkin...I love everything with pumpkin and cinnamon.

1. Do you sleep later on weekends compared to weekdays?
Typically, yes.

2. Do you do any holiday gift exchanges with your coworkers?
No. I don't like that sort of thing.

3. Have you ever gone to a store to shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday?
Yes! I love it. I enjoy bargain hunting. I go late at night on Thursday. DH likes to go with me. I used to go with my BFF in our younger days. I've also been by myself.
EX would pitch a fit about it, so I think I only went once in the 12 years we were married.


4. When do you start your Thanksgiving break?
We get the Wednesday before and Friday after.

5. What is your favorite kind of pie?
It is probably a toss up between coconut cream and butterscotch.

1. Nope. Around 7 every day.
2. Never did. Retired now.
3. Never. We go to block island on the ferry the day after thanksgiving for a bit of shopping and a quiet lunch. Always a lovely day for a boat ride!
4. Ours was alway just Thursday and Friday.
5. I do not eat gluten so no pie. I make a mean gluten free clementine cake with almond flour. Making it for a dinner party next week! I am making my famous chocolate chip cookie pie for thanksgiving at my daughters house next week though. I will not be eating it.

1) It's a toss-up, but I wake up on the early side on most days (5am hour), regardless of whether it's a weekday or weekend day.

2) N/A to me.

3) For Black Friday eons ago. I don't recall coming away with anything much.

4) This year, I'm freer (NOT completely free) on that 4-day TG weekend: Nov 27 - 30.

5) Lemon cream!..never really a fan of the pumpkin or sweet potato.
