Carb coma, Thanksgiving bliss and what I'm reading this week
Yawn...I'm in a carb coma.
It was quite possibly one of the BEST Thanksgivings we've had, oh, EVER. Well, the only thing that would've made it the best is if Grandma was her old self but we take the blessings we have. I know this is going to sound bad but none of my cousins on one side came and it's not because they weren't there that it was so good, it was because their SCREAMING kids weren't either. It was calm, stress free, the dog was allowed to be up amongst the people, we did exactly what I suggested yesterday and reminisced, laughed, made memories, etc. The food was all great (but I'm glad I made my own turkey because not to toot my own horn but dang no one else's compares to mine) and of course we stuffed ourselves into a food coma. My light pumpkin pie was the preferred pie of the weight watchers and since two pieces equalled one normal one, we didn't have much by way of leftovers so I may start making two of them from now on! SO yummy!
Now on to...
The Worst Health Habits to Ditch ASAP (As I sit here biting my nails)
Use a Shammy as a Washable, Reusable Swiffer Cloth (They spelled it wrong, not me)
The Difference Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Makes not a difference to me...I've been done for 3 weeks! *ducking*)
Why You Really Get Sick on Planes and How to Prevent It
Why You're Doing It Wrong: Pecan Pie (I'm SO making this)
5 Obscure Looney Tunes Cartoons (I VERY clearly remember 3 and 4. I loved that they were a departure from the usual. Though I did want to flick the owl)
Urbanites Go to Crazy Lengths for a Little Personal Space (I don't need this but I would totally have this if I had to work at a cafe or library.)
A British Teacher's 30 Year Archive of Confiscated Toys (Pretty cool!)
11 Iconic Perfumes of the 80's (I saw the bottle for Poison and instantly got a headache! My friend wore that and Exclamation! and stunk like a cheap jezebel.)
New Wave Artists Aging Gracefully (Uh...most not so gracefully. I wanted to cry after I read this)
What to Do with Turkey Leftovers (In case you need some ideas!)
Animals Dressed as Pilgrims
30 Minute No Gym Bodyweight Workout (In case you have a little extra stuffing than you had the day before)
Today I am SUPER busy! We've got company coming for the big game tomorrow and I have so much cleaning and food prep to do today I should be a twitching heap of stress by day's end. I'm hoping the Mr will pitch in and help where he can so maybe we can relax a bit tonight before a full day's entertaining tomorrow. Entertaining puts me in my bliss. Let's hope all of the recipes I'm trying all turn out or it'll be pizza from the shop up the street!
How was your Thanksgiving? Are you a Black Friday nut? Anything on tap for the weekend?
