Random thoughts....

Well....I made it through Thanksgiving alive.  Actually, it wasn't bad at all.  I did all the prep work, Jesse did the actual cooking, and there we were.  I was sad that I couldn't have any cranberry, because of the teeth bleaching, so I had to save that for another day.  I also had to cut my food into teeny bits because I couldn't open my mouth much from where the dental tech 'made a bit of a mistake' and got some drying solution on my lip - causing the whole lip to swell something wicked.

I will come clean and admit that.........even though they said 'no coffee'......I had my coffee, and used a straw.  Really, it was either that or spend time in jail for killing someone from my lack of coffee.  I know...I know....I'm weak.  I'm okay with that.  LOL

Anyway, yesterday, the neighbors (the ones we like) called and invited us to.....

Thanksgiving Dinner.

They hadn't had their own yet, so they were cooking their turkey and wanted us to come over.  More turkey.  LOL  It's a good thing I like turkey, and I love stuffing.  For our Thanksgiving dinner, we had a smoked turkey - which is so good.... but the neighbors have this monster of a grill with a rotisserie feature on it, so they put their bird on the rotisserie.....and I have to say was SO good.  Very moist and tender.  Okay, so I was a little surprised.  They had put it on fairly late, so I was initially just glad it was cookied through.  LOL

I guess today will be spent with more packing.  ::sigh::  I may end up staining the new back door, and if I finish early enough, maybe we can get that in today.  Jesse will be putting in the new countertop, I think.  He's putting in new plumbing under the sink, so I expect some cursing and at least one whack of the head.  The lovely Ryan will be outside by the shed muttering 'I flipping hate painting.  If I never paint again, it will be too soon.'  Hee... (love you, Ryan!)

Oh.  and who has information about Wales?  Anybody?  Y'all know me and Jesse were looking at England in a few years, but I hear Wales has some very awesome weather, yes?



  1. You keep freaking me out with the house moving...I sympathize!!! I have to do it again in about six months but this time my plan is to burn the house down, collect the insurance money and sell the empty lot. What do you think?

  8. Hi Amy,

    Thanks for commenting on my journal - you want awesome weather? Go back in my journal to November 19th, and see how you like the stormpictures. Or right back to November 11th, 2005. When we had a hurricane. I'll email you with links for info on Wales.

  9. Most families in Wales have a pet skunk.  And they all worship Rachael Ray.  Yup.
    Good luck!!!

    Love ya, girlfriend!~


  11. I used to work with a lovely woman from Wales. The Welsh are very different from the British, very stubborn, proud, sweet, lyrical, and poets at heart, all of them.  They have tongue twisting names, and are very warm hearted.


Talk to me, people! Otherwise, I'm just talking to myself....
