HAPPY THANKSGIVING !
Had a good Thanksgiving. Went to see Nanny at the rehab place around noon. They had a Thanksgiving dinner there as well, with turkey and stuffing and all the usual Thanksgiving food. Her roommate is pretty funny. A quirky little old lady. :)
After that we went to Mike's aunt Judi's house. Mike's sister Kristina, her fiance Chuck and the kids Shannon and Erik met up with us there as well. Judi's daughter Gabby spent the day with her dad and his family. So it was a smaller Thanksgiving this year. Just us, Kristina, Chuck, the kids, Judi and grandma (Mike's other grandmother who lives with his aunt Judi).
It was still very nice. Lots of yummy food. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, corn, green beans, rolls .... and of course pie (pumpkin and apple) for dessert.
Turkey makes you sleepy so I think I will go to bed early tonight.
Right now I am listening to Christmas songs .... I should also write some Christmas cards. Well, we'll see. :)

Work actually wasn't too bad today. The work luncheon turned out ok too. Actually were able to leave on time as well which was nice for a change.
Dinner turned out to be a disaster though. I attempted to make this recipe from Allrecipes.com. Whoever thought that putting 1/4 cup of Italian seasoning and a tablespoon of red pepper in a recipe was a good idea was definitely very mistaken.
It was HORRIBLE ! We ended up getting pizza ... oh well.
Going to watch Just Married now.
Can't believe it's Thanksgiving already tomorrow. We will go and see Nanny at the rehab place in the morning before we go to Mike's aunt's house later. She got transferred there today so things seem to be going according to plan. Hope she gets all better soon.

Busy day today at work. Or maybe I should say - a long day. I was bored out of my mind for most of the day but got really busy around 3 o'clock and ended up staying at work till about 6:30 or so. The holidays are always super busy.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better but I am not so sure really. I guess the paycheck will be nice with all this overtime this week.
After work and dinner I made manicotti for tomorrow's "Thanksgiving" lunch at work. I am not so sure what's Thanksgiving about manicotti but at least I know it will be good. Other things we will have include rice, mashed potatoes and chicken. We will see how it turns out I guess. :)

Another day ... Thankfully Nanny is doing well. They already started excercises and rehab with her so she can get back on her feet as soon as possible. They might move her to the rehab facility as early as Wednesday.

SUNNY ... Thank god. :) The weather has improved and we are supposed to have a nice sunny weekend.
I am glad it's finally Friday. Went to get my hair cut after work. Nothing drastic really, just got my ends cut. Looks nice again.
Made dinner (Tortellini with Broccoli) and gonna play Trivial Pursuit now. I am probably gonna lose but that's ok. :)

RAIN .. RAIN ... RAIN.
It's been raining lots lately although it isn't all that cold so I guess that's good. The weather is supposed to clear up starting tomorrow so the weekend should be nice. That's good because I am off from work Saturday and Sunday ... YAY. :)
Not too much else new really. Same old stuff at work .. this week has been dragging.
We got a new copy machine
yesterday. It's pretty cool cause it can print, make copies, fax, staple, scan and all sorts of other cool stuff. I know I am a sad case but I am actually excited about it. :)
I am glad tomorrow is Friday. Not too much planned for the weekend. Saturday we are going to a 80th birthday party for Mike's grandmother. Besides that we are probably going to stay home, maybe watch some DVDs or go out to eat one night. We will see. :)
