Yeah the Turkey is finally outta here.....but I really like cold turkey especially the sandwiches. But only the white meat! I'll even eat cold dressing!
Miss T and myself joined the rest of the family at my Mom's house for the feast. My little brother had brought a girl-guest with him. Of course Tom is still in TX and was missed at the table.
Everyone has been sick....except my Nanny. But her heat system is broke and they are ordering the part. She cannot even run the emergency heat, so I am insisting that she stay with us at least at night...she goes home during the day to do her "busy work". She has to be doing something and at 86 I would hope I would be too.
Miss T was home from school all week with her cold/flu whatever it was...sore throat and cough/sneeze/snot etc. I only worked one day this week....and I'll get paid for Thursday. Whoooopie eh? That's ok.....I'm thankful I have a job and things will pick up soon for us. If not....I'll worry about that later.
While we were home this week Miss T put up our tree....I've never had it up this early before in my life! She did a great job - ran me out of the room until it was time to put on the lights.
What kind of lights do you have?
I insist on ALL WHITE and at least 1000 on my tree. Tom says planes have trouble landing because of it. It seriously troubles my eyes when I'm decorating it....and it is done in RED decorations too....
I use a big bow on top. No angel or star for me.
I've also been gathering the gifts and wrapping them. My Brother & SIL and I decided we'd do only for the kids this year....we're all watching the wallet. But I didn't exactly stick to the plan...I ordered a magazine and a cookbook for her. Shhhhhh don't tell. It will be ok...I'll just say it's from Miss T.
She and I spent about 5 hours today in the mall....just wandering around. Not in any hurry, just somewhere to be, had lunch there at Chick Fil A and got a Great American Cookie cookie....hers was Snickerdoodle and I got triple chocolate chunk.
Tonight I packed a box to send to the nephew's in TX...I'm getting into the spirit of giving this year. They're both big Carolina Panthers fans...go figure. The oldest was born here, so he has an excuse. The little one just wants to be like big brother. Tom's been having a blast playing with them....lots of testosterone in that house, unlike ours.
Christmas! Yikes......I'm getting my house decorated INSIDE. It was raining today, so nothing outside yet. I really dread doing that one by myself this year since Tom won't be home until late on the 10th.
Hey Martha, Shelly, Angie, Bethe & Rose....I'm heading SOUTH for the winter...well, at least a week of winter. Planning to FLY in on the 26th...drive to da beach for a circle of drums and beer for the weekend, then head up to the FIL's. He'll just have to live with the fact that we're not going straight to his house first. It's MY vacation.....
So Robin that means LUNCH OK????
