I tried to go out and go shopping today. This is short, my nerves are on edge and the fibromyalgia which flairs up intensely when I’m stressed is acting haywire. Needless to say, it is totally crazy out there in the city. I even had a panic attack and it raised my blood pressure so much I felt funny. I swear this time of year ages people and can NOT be good for their health. I’m living proof tonight..or rather early morning now, as I had to sit and calm down after going to only one store.
Today is Thanksgiving. It has been really calm and peaceful and I have a whole lot to be thankful for. I cooked for two days and made an awesome Thanksgiving feast for just my husband and the three kids that are still at home. The other kids and the grandkids made other plans after all.
They raved about my turkey, which actually I take great pride in knowing how to cook “Big Bird” exactly right and have been told that it looks like cutting into a turkey on a TV commercial. (insert vanity in here) I does too, which I am proud of. No fancy Thanksgiving tags inserted here at this hour. I’m so tired, I’d no doubt put in a July 4th pic. But I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving as I had.
Well now, this is a fine pickle. Up until just now, I was told that Thanksgiving was being held at my sister’s home this year, as usual. Makes it great since she has a bigger home…MUCH BIGGER and actually two kitchens. One kitchen is upstairs and there is one in her basement that I think at one time may have been a very large apartment.
Come to find out, she has bowed out this year. Totally blew all of my family’s plans and I have a HUGE clan to worry about feeding. It looks like I will be having my family’s Thanksgiving here at our house. I have no clue where to put everyone for a big meal together. BUT, “they” say togetherness is what matters. Okay, that’s all cool, fine and flippin’ dandy. But I do wonder if “they” meant this by us all having to sit on one another’s laps to feast out.
This video is a trailer for a movie that has one of my good friends, Leslie, in it. My girlfriend plays the telephone operator. She is great – I’m so proud! I did not know this video was even on Youtube but I stumbled across it tonight and wanted to pit here to share with everyone.
November. The holidays are going to start rushing in and of course, I’ll be totally overwhelmed. I hate hate hate to rush around doing things I have procrastinated doing. And I’m realllly good at putting things off until the last minute, so it’s my own fault. I say that I work well under pressure. Okay, so I’ve made myself believe it and actually, to be honest I work well under pressure for the most part.
I’m sorry there has been a lull in my blogging. My own fault. No excuses. After all the holidays, I indeed know I will try lots harder. Until then, (deep sigh inserted, as I just did it in RL) I will try and fill in what’s happening here on the home front. After the whole rush is over…heh heh heh…ya’ll are going to be stuck with me, as I hibernate in the winter in front of my computer. I hate the cold and snow. I do believe, no…I’m positive I am misplaced in the wrong State.
