I am SO glad to be back in the office! I might be the only one, I realize this. But five entire days with my kids – who were not the most well-behaved – was a long long time. That’s not to say we didn’t have a good Thanksgiving; I thought it was very nice. On Tuesday, we went out for pizza and then my parents came through town and used us as a hotel on their way down south. Wednesday I was off with the kids but Ash was not. However, it all worked out. We ran errands then met Ash for lunch. He stayed to watch soccer and I took the kids home. The handyman was still working so that was an annoying sort of thing in the background. Granted, he hasn’t been back since that day.
On Thursday, we all ran the Turkey Trot. Ok, well, Dakota sat in the stroller but it went well. Ash’s calf didn’t hurt him too much and I did ok pushing that stupid stroller. I was so glad when it was over! We went right home and I started in on making food. Since it was just the five of us, it was a very relaxed day. Good food, naps, movies, and relaxing. The same for Friday. Though we did finally take out old broken TV (A big one) out to the dump. We also went into Target, which was surprisingly not crowded for 11 am on Black Friday. In fact, I went to Costco and Publix on Saturday and those too were not crowded. Normally, Costco is a bloodbath on a Saturday. Maybe people were still out of town.
Anyway, it was a nice time away from work but it’s time to get right back to it.
Far as I can tell, this is the first Christmas themed post for the next few weeks. Let’s pick a few of my all-time faves.
When I was little, my parents owned a cassette tape of classic songs and I used to take it from their collection and listen to it in my Walkman. Some of the songs I loved are as follows:
and this song used to kind of scare me but it’s a good one now.
