gobble gobble. Thanksgiving was awesome. My mom and I cooked dinner together. Turkey, GBC, potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, jello, rolls and apple pie. Totally nailed it too. I heard a stat on TV that said the average American eats 2.5 lbs of turkey on Thanksgiving. Um, I eat like a piece. This cannot be factual information.
My Thanksgiving was slightly bruised by a very mean-spirited commenter on one of my posts. Please believe me when I say that I am not telling you this so you can go tell her what’s the what or so that you can say nice things to me in return. I have always known that we would be persecuted by society; it just doesn’t make it easy. I guess all I’m saying is be careful with your keyboard courage and be careful with what you say to people while claiming to be tolerant. That is all.
We’re celebrating Mike’s birthday on Monday. He has the day off work, and I’m not quite sure what we are going to do yet. So, um, that was important to tell you. I’ll keep you updated.
I wore this eyeliner yesterday. I think I love it. It’s so subtle, but I feel fancy.
I feel like I have been feeling (I have a lot of feelings) this baby kick lately. I’m a little over 13 weeks, I think (why is that so hard to remember after your first??), so it would be early. Maybe it’s still the phantom kicks I felt after having Ellen.
My parents are in town visiting for the holly-day. It made me realize something that I miss from before having Ellen. I didn’t even know I was missing it. You see, even on weekends, Ellen is up bright and early, and one of us has to attend to her needs. So, one of us sleeps while one is up to play. When we don’t need to get up with her, we can snuggle in bed and chit chat. Aww. I know. I miss that.
Mike and I had to go to Walmart yesterday to get more chicken broth. They had all of their Black Friday stuff out and ready to rock and roll. I’m not going to comment on the event or say whether I think small decisions like opening stores early on Thanksgiving day are the quiet way that we are ruining our culture. No, I won’t comment on that. But, I will say this, if you’re looking for a good deal on pet beds, Walmart has it. (disclaimer: go Black Friday shop your heart out. I am a sucker for a good deal too. But, Thanksgiving day? Really? No one wants that, amiright? Oops, I guess I talked about it.)
Go visit Jen and say heyyyy.
