Respite Care is Chicken Soup for the Caregiver’s Soul
With the mild fall season we’ve had I hope you’re not surprised when I tell you that the holiday season has arrived bringing along with it expanded to-do lists, cooking, parties and much more. For those of you who are caregivers – these can make for stressful times when juggling life’s every day priorities.

I thought some of the local sports fans might like to see this amazing video from the other night in Boston where two north shore ladies received the Good Sportsman award from the sports editors of the Boston Globe for their stories.

One week from today, unbelievably, the Schrafft family will make our annual day-after-Thanksgiving trip to The Beverly Tree Farm to cut down our Christmas Tree. For us, it is more than just getting our tree…. it is about the atmosphere, the ambience, the donations that are made to charitable organizations each year…and the tradition. Getting our tree at “the farm” is all that my boys know and it is always one of their favorite days of the holiday season…and maybe even the entire year.
All that having been said, I am well aware that there are gorgeous trees to be scored here on “the island”…so, I ask you, share where you get your tree. Do you have a favorite place? A well kept secret you’d like to share? A bargain? A favorite experience? A place off the beaten path? Let us know!
I am an avid reader and Gloucester local and I was wondering if you’d be so kind to post on GMG a little blurb about my lifestyle blog, The Common Day.
I’d love to get the word out! I post mostly about home and family life as well as adventuring around New England.
Here is where you can find me!:
Thanks and Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
