Do you hear what I hear?

The quietness of myLot is deafening today! I know it's just a few days from the big day of stuffing ourselves with turkey and then hitting the stores with war-like intention but it's only Tuesday. Where is everyone? I see a few of the regulars are wide awake and discussing this, that and the other. I was beginning to feel very alone for a while until they woke up and joined in. I might have to disappear myself for a while - just to get out and get some air and clear my head! We have a few errands to run locally so no worry about running into traffic or crowd not in our little town! What are you up to day?

It seems to me to be a lot quieter the last few weeks than when I first started.

I was thinking that yesterday was quiet! I imagine that with everyone preparing to travel, or host family, or cook, or plan their Black Friday shopping strategies, that they may not have a lot of time for posting! But then again, Thanksgiving is only celebrated in the US, so all our friends around the world should still be active on this site!

There are more 'other countries' here today than USA people that's for sure!

@AbbyGreenhill It probably also has to do with the time of the day. When I got up early this morning, the majority of the active members I saw were from places like India and Pakistan. Then, mid-morning, I started seeing more users from western Europe, and now here in the early afternoon I am starting to see more Americans and Canadians.

I find that Mylot is not as busy as I thought it would, at any time. Where are the ex bubblers?

I don't have any plans today until later this evening. We are having a Thanksgiving Dinner at Church tonight at 7pm. Other than that I have nothing to do. =) I do see it is quiet today.

@LadyDuck I plan on getting things done today- make my cranberry sauce, put the outside lights up - and get the tree and decorations from the basement. Maybe make chocolate chip cookies if I don't run out of steam.

I guess we all see it differently and there are time differences which add to it.

I had to work today and I have a lot to do tonight and a long day of work tomorrow. So, I will be here very little tonight and tomorrow. I am always here in spurts.

There will b e those slow days. It can seem as if a site is deserted when that happens but people are off doing other things. Traffic goes up and down.

I woke up an hour and a half ago and I am on now. My husband left to work. This is his last day at work. He will hand the keys over to the new store manager. He is all excited. We are going to go and celebrate in a few days.

We didn't officially retire , we just stopped working and moved south so I guess that was our celebration. Have fun.
