Yup it's Thanksgiving next week. I really don't even know how we got here. Every year passes fast as you get older but this year has just been such a weird year. It's Thanksgiving next week and I feel like I haven't done anything this year. Normally we would be heading somewhere on vacation right about now. My TimeHop app and Facebook Memories has been sending me pictures from all of our recent trips, the Azores 2 years in a row and Austria/Croatia last year. I am of course happy we are safe and healthy but the selfish side of me still laments the fact that we can't go anywhere this year. We did a few smaller weekend trips, one over the 4th of July and one in early September. But yeah, I don't know if we will get to do anything the rest of the year the way the cases are rising. Just doesn't feel safe to go somewhere, even if it's just a neighboring state. And a lot of states even around us are requiring quarantines etc. So yeah, no thank you. I guess we'll just stay put and make the best of it. I am able to roll my vacation time into next year so hopefully something will change at some point in 2021 so we can go on an actual trip.
I see people on social media going on trips, pictures of people in Florida and whatnot. And it makes me so jealous. But I just don't feel comfortable doing that at the moment. Ugh. It's ok. Will still have a nice Thanksgiving. Will be a Friendsgiving this year. Our friends John and Jana invited us over to their new home for Thanksgiving so that should be a nice relaxed day.
Other than that not too much new. On Friday I went to a friend/co-worker's house and worked at her house (about 25 min away) She has a new kitten so I had to go see of course. She has 2 dogs and 2 cats so it was fun working from her house and hanging out with all of her animals. She owns the brother of our cat Sherlock and it's amazing how similar Styx and Sherlock are personality wise. They have so many similar traits. And the new kitten - Ash - OMG just way too cute and adorable. And of course her two dogs, Atlas and Cleo, are super friendly too.
Yesterday, Saturday, we had brunch at J. Lawrence and then later met up with John and Jana at Centrico and hung out there for a while. Today we are going to head to Rizzuto's in Westport and then eventually will do our grocery store run and catch up on some TV/Netflix. And tomorrow is already Monday again. At least it's a short week but I have a feeling that I'll be pretty busy for the three days I am working since I am covering for a co-worker. Well, we shall see.
