Holiday Prep: Countdown--five days to go!

At five and four days until Thanksgiving, here are the things I plan on doing:

-Make pie crust, if I haven't frozen any.
-clean the house
-finish all the last shopping
-check the turkey to make sure it is thawing well
-do laundry and make sure that those nice outfits for all the family members are clean and set aside so that they can be found on the day of... if you want special outfits, that is.
-make sure tablecloths and dishes are clean
-clean out the fridge to get ready for leftovers and things that need overnight chilling. One happy thing about November: where I live, the front porch or the basement cellar can also become refrigerators! (though you do need to monitor the temperature... ideal storage temp is between 38 and 45 degrees farenheit.)
-if desired, make the jell-o... though it might be better to wait still.
