How are you guys? We had a great Thanksgiving. Lots of folks to the house and tons of food. I’ve decided not to step on the scales until next week.
I don’t remember Friday. I had plans to shop, but I ended up sleeping most of the day. One of those lovely sigraines hit and it knocked me out. Though I did manage to read Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Loved it.
I woke of Saturday and felt fine, though I’ve been wicked tired all weekend. I went ot my friend Mark’s wedding on Saturday night. He married a beautiful woman, Madelyn, and it was a sweet, simple wedding. Loved it. And I had a chance to visit with my friends from the radio station. Mark aka Hawkeye is part of the morning crew I do movie reviews for, and he’s a great guy. They all are.
Then we went to my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday party. She doesn’t look or act anywhere near that age, whatever that age is… :-)
Today I hung out with Shannon and Rosemary at the bookstore. I love our time together. Then I came home and the guys were putting up Christmas on the inside. Okay, technically, I’d left strict instructions that it had better be done by the time I got home. We have a new rule in the house that everyone has to help out with big projects. ;-) So Christmas is up and it looks great. After all these years the kids really have it down.
I did learn a few things about myself the past few days:
1. My limit in heels is now 1 hour and 25 minutes. That’s it. Sad but true.
2. There is a limit to how much pie one girl can eat. Seriously.
3. If you take a nap right after the meal, no matter how rude it might seem, the elves (read in laws) do the dishes. I wish I’d known this years ago. ;-)
4. It’s okay not to have all your Christmas shopping and cards done. What’s life without a little adventure?
So tell me what’s been going on with you? How was your Thanksgiving? Did you buy any cool gifts? Tell all!
