Our Holidays

I had a five-day holiday! It was fantastic and I am sorry it is almost over. I stayed home with J on Wednesday as she had thrown out her back. We were going to hang up pictures, but it was good to just rest. Made my usual spinach dip and chilled the wine for Thursday.

Thursday morning, before we went to our respective Thanksgiving Day dinners, J and I went to Garden Ridge to purchase a comforter set. I cannot believe that I got her into a store, much less on Thanksgiving morning! Here is a picture:

And a close-up of the pattern:

Thanksgiving dinner went okay with my parents, brother and sister-in-law, and my grandmother. My kids were with their dad in Arkansas. Around 3:00 o'clock I felt a panic attack coming on. Nothing seemed right without my girls, and I felt to blame for us not all being together and the conversation always skipping around me and my life with J. So I got up and left before dessert. We were going to hang up pictures that night. I can't even remember what we did.

Friday morning, I was lazy and slept in. It was wonderful. Again, we went SHOPPING that afternoon in search of a mirror to hang over the fireplace. We didn't find one, but I did get the majority of the decorating done:

Friday night, we turned on the above Christmas lights, lit a fire, and watched The Wizard of Oz. I know we really had intended to hang up the pictures.

Saturday I went to visit my grandmother, look at Hondas, and do some research at a store I will be speaking at in January. We went to Spec's in search of cherry rum and then had pizza and pasta at Barry's Pizza. Last night we watched a Hallmark Christmas movie and just chilled. Again, the pictures still lean against a wall in the office.

Today's plans are to go to church for the first time in months, grocery shop, and watch The Amazing Race. Oh, yeah, wait >>>> J, are we going to hang up pictures? Ha ha!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks for reading!
