A {Pre-Turkey Day} Virtual Coffee

Happy pre-turkey day Tuesday EVERYONE!

Forgive me for my bleary eyed look today, we had an early wake-up call. E was having some potty issues and was up from 4 a.m. till almost 6 a.m. trying to poop. And while I did get up a couple of times with him, a big kudos goes to the hubs who took the brunt of it.

So in order to wipe this blank look off my face I will be sucking down a Gingerbread Latte while you tell me all about your weekend and your big plans for turkey day.

If we were really meeting for coffee today, I would give you all big hugs and lots of thanks for all the sweet words about G and his surgery last Tuesday.

I took two days off of work and could have probably gotten by with only taking one, but it was nice to hang with him for an extra day. We went to breakfast the morning after his surgery, just me and the boys. I like to do that once a month. It’s a treat to hangout on a “school day / work day” morning and linger over pancakes and OJ.

G was back to his old self by that afternoon, running around like a crazy person. His teacher at school thinks he’s feeling better with those nasty adenoids taken out. And I have to say I agree with her.
Right now we are gearing up to head to the Windy City for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately {or fortunately} it will be pretty low-key as the majority of B2’s family had other plans, so it will be just us, his mom and his cousin. But that also means I can just hangout in sweats too…so I’m not too bummed.

Then we have our big overnight “camping” trip at White Pines where we get a free Christmas tree with our stay. So cool!

Speaking of Christmas trees, I need a new fake one. We put up two trees each year. The real one, which goes upstairs and is decorated with big funky retro lights, massive amounts of Hawkeye and Star Wars ornaments and a train underneath. It’s the “fun” tree as B2 calls it.

Then there’s my tree the one with “fancy” things and girlie ornaments like butterflies and fairies glistening amongst white twinkle lights. Well, mine crapped out last year. A short in the lights makes it unusable, and the search is on to find the EXACT same one. I purchased it about six years ago at Bronners {the World’s Largest Christmas Store…no lie} and now I don’t think they have them anymore…Grrrr…so the search is on. Hopefully I can find a tree and have it shipped before Christmas is over. Nothing like waiting till the last minute.

So, do you have a real tree or fake tree?

Rumor has it that it will be 60 degrees here over the holiday weekend…NICE! I need to put up our outdoor lights and 60 degrees is MUCH better than the typical 40.

If we were meeting for coffee I’d probably be modeling one of my new outfits. I indulged in some retail therapy on Sunday and dropped a couple of bucks at Ann Taylor LOFT. Seriously though, a small price to pay for pants that actually fit. I’ve {thankfully} lost so much weight that all my pants were falling right off {like literally}, and I doubt the seniors I work with would like to see me depants, so I just HAD to go shopping…right? I can’t wait to wear all my new stuff…I even bought skinny corduroys…YOWZA!

Well, I’ve rambled on long enough. Time to get back to work, and get loose ends tied up so I can enjoy my days off.

Have a GREAT Turkey day…Gobble, Gobble.

And don’t forget to head over to Amy’s for more brew.
