Weekend in Review

on 29 November 2010


I don't know about y'all, but I'm exhausted.  Of course, I haven't been sleeping much lately, so that might be part of it, but the weekend was jam packed with fun and good times too.

My sister is running away to Europe this week with her only daughter.  They're going to Austria, Switzerland and Germany to tour the Christmas Marts and some museums and concerts as well.  She's been looking forward to this for so long that I'm not really jealous of her.  Not much.  Not right this minute.  Give me until next weekend and that might be different.  Anyway, we went up to her house to play on Saturday and I took a pumpkin cake because that's what I do.  It was fun and delicious all the way around.

Friday was my annual tradition of Clean Out and Haul Off.  It seems like when half the world is out shopping, I usually prefer to stay home and clear stuff out.  This time it was all stuff from the Boy's room.  It was good and sad all at the same time.

And Thursday, Thanksgiving was spent with my parents and my Grandma.  Mom and Dad did the turkey and the potatoes and dressing and Chris and I did a squash casserole and Pioneer Woman's green bean casserole and let me tell you--those beans were AWESOME.  Once the sauce was made I looked at Chris and said, "I could take a bath in this stuff!"  Mom made us pumpkin, pecan and apple pies and they were YUM.  It was nice and low key and we ended up watching Polar Express with the Boy.  He was really worried about their tickets.  It was awesome.

And the added benefit of having limited income, I'm done with my Christmas shopping.  I made my choices and sat down at the computer and ordered a couple of things for the Boy and a couple of things for Chris and we're done.  We're putting up the tree tonight for Family Night and then I'll set to work on cookies and toffee and other yummy and highly caloric things.

Oh!  And Chris has a phone interview tomorrow.  But then...some of you might already know that.  Think good things for my man, will you?

How was your weekend?
