You'll have to excuse me if this post contains typos...I'm typing on my new laptop and it's taking some serious getting used to. The keyboard is completely different and is off center from what I'm used to. I see carpal tunnel in my future and a potential rectangular frisbee throwing contest. This post posted right in the middle of me putting it together so that was awesome...not. Time will tell if I'll keep it or just get a solid state drive and stick it in my old piece of crap Dell. The Mr got his new tablet yesterday so he was setting up all kinds of crap. Kind of made his hooky day feel like work. I don't mean this to sound mean but watching him gleefully whiz through his tablet makes me want to flick him in the forehead. If only he could be as equally frustrated with his new toy as I am with mine. We'll just say I'm not getting rid of the box within the next week.
We got in an early workout which is always nice but we were both so sore from the kettlebell workout the night before that it was a bit on the painful side. The kind of pain that you know you need to go through to loosen things up and stretch your bits out. But I'll take almost 1100 calories worth of bit stretching. I was a little bummed to find out the heart rate monitor we've relied on for years is discontinued or if it's still out there, I can't seem to find it. So if we need to replace ours at some point, I'll need to do some research.
I need to get some ingredients for a Thanksgiving dessert recipe I want to try. It's been brewin' in mah brain for a few months and I might make it Sunday night so we can have a slice and I'll send the rest to work with the Mr. Ooh, I've said too much. I hate that Thanksgiving is late this year, it's throwing off my whole schedule. We kind of lose the whole first week of December since the first Saturday is the 7th. I need to get the rest of my projects finished up and we have to clean some spots in the basement to put these projects there so I can get my office looking like an office and not like Staples threw up in there. I don't know why I'm telling you guys all this, maybe it's like if I type it out, I have to do it? HA! That's funny. Because it's worked so well in the past.
I was informed not too long ago that we wouldn't be having two turkeys for Thanksgiving. This translates to no leftovers which sucks because hello, the best part of the weekend after Thanksgiving is leftovers! So I'm going to do our own turkey all fancy pants the way *we* like it since the family's idea of seasoning is salt. I have to say the thing I'm going to miss the most is Grandma's noodles. The past two years have been a no go with her condition and hats off to my aunt and uncle for trying but they're not the same. I may try to give them a go in secret because I don't want to be saddled with the work but I'm hoping the noodle tutorial I taped with her when we realized something was wrong will help me out.
Have you started planning your Thanksgiving menu yet? What two things (other than turkey, too easy) makes you look forward to Thanksgiving dinner?
