Morning Meandering….Turkey Coma…..
Good morning! Hopefully you all had wonderful Thanksgivings and are now having a wonderful Friday! I figure we all fall into one of these categories for today:
- Crazed shopped who got up at 3 am and proceeded to stretch and do squats and lunges before they charged out the door to get in on all the great deals…. leaping aisle after aisle in a single bound….
- Disgruntled worker….. HAD to get up to be to work to smile at the crazed shoppers (all awhile a little concerned for your own safely (and rightfully so if you are standing in front of the “it” item display).
- 4 Day Weekend person, cheerfully rolling out of bed at a non-insane hour and staying in sleep pants for most of the morning while you have a bowl of cereal, an egg and a side of turkey while you watch movies.
- Normal work person who has to work but not at a retail store (WOO HOO!) and goes to work with a slight turkey induced hang over and can not seem to shake the “I just want to curl up with a book and read” vision….
I am number 4…… (LOL… Isn’t that a book title?)
Yup… I work today, in the office…. but I think it will be a nice quiet day. And yes, I looked it up…. turkey does make you sleepy… which explains why yesterday after a delicious dinner and a game of QUELF (which was HILARIOUS!!!) we all watched Prince Of Persia and I promptly fell asleep in the chair. (now I wipe the sleep from my eyes and move towards a new day….
The way we do Thanksgiving is we have the BIG dinner at 1:00 PM. I go all out, there was only 4 of us but I totally overdo it every year…. turkey, stuffing,. sweet potatoes, corn souffle, dinner rolls, pickles, cottage cheese, broccoli salad, shrimp, chips, dips, crackers, cheese, cranberries, 3 kinds of pie….
Then it is a free for the rest of the day. Once I clean up after the BIG dinner…. yo are on your own. If you are hungry, make a plate….. there is no supper because we have grazed all day long.
We ended our day with the 6:30 PM showing of The Deathly Hallows. Chance and I had already seen it, but College son Justin had not yet so we went again. I like to do that anyways when it is a long anticipated movie so I can see it more clearly and pick up on more details.
Weekend plan? I have so much to do…. we leave next Wednesday for Honduras. I have to pack, prep the house for the dog sitter, shop, pick up prescriptions, see my dentist, tan (so I do not burn), and prepare the guest posts – which I think are actually a lot of fun and can’t wait for you to see them
