I think I missed Monday.
James and I were gone all weekend to a conference outside of Dallas, or as we Texans like to call it, the Big-D.
I would love to fill you in on the weekend’s activities, but it is all a blur. After only an hour or so of being back home the memory of getting away faded into the background of kids and unpacking and wondering if there was any food in the fridge (which there wasn’t).
I do recall enjoying time with several friends that went to the conference also. And there may have been chocolate involved.
Back on the homefront the “terrible illness of 2011″ seems to be coming to an end. It has been almost 2 days since anyone threw up and we all have our fingers and toes crossed. Could it really be over? Does crossing your toes actually help anything? Is it possible to boil an entire house? Is there any chocolate left from the weekend?
And now, like a blink, it’s time to gear up for Thanksgiving. But I’ve got a plan. I’m going to go to the big city this Wednesday morning and get ahead of the crowds. I’ll buy everything I need so I don’t have to go to the store again. Y’all know I don’t do well with crowds. Last year I stood in line for an hour and a half to buy a Honey Baked ham. Not this year. This year I will serve whatever is available at the store with the least number of cars in the parking lot. If that means tamales with chili for Thanksgiving, so be it.
Oh, if you’ve been invited to my house for Thanksgiving…stay tuned. It may be a Mexican themed meal. Look at the bright side, we get to take a siesta after lunch.
Have a great week…..and since I missed Monday it will be a short one!
