FAMILY FROM OUR WEDDING

BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

BRRRRR.. man is it chilly out.. I am sure that it did not help that we rode the motorcycle today... we went to visit an old friend of mine.. old in the sense of just knowing her for 25 years... Shari it was great to see you.. and meet Ken... We had a super visit and then Steve and I moised on home...
Eating has been decent not super but decent.. I had scrambled eggs this a.m. with an english muffin and a few bites of cheese grits and a taste of Steve's pancakes.. Just got home a bit ago and was so cold .. I had some of Steve's coffee, a steamy hot cup of mashed potatos left over from yesterday and a half a turkey sandwich .. I am still freezing.. but not hungry at least... gotta do laundry.. why yes.. I have not done laundry for over a week and the stack.. literally is taller than me.. ( albeit 4 ft. 11 inches is not very tall... for laundry it is) ... and I have a whopping amount of thankyou notes to write.. off to launderize and write notes...

Hope no one got crushed in the shopping craze...
another reason I am so glad I don't celebrate Christmas... no excuse to over indulge and no reason to over spend.. I managed to do that at the wedding.. .. I just get to enjoy the holiday time.. seeing the pretty lights... buying a couple gifts for Steve's kids ( they do celebrate Christmas.. Steve's first wife was not jewish) ... and maybe indulging in a gift for Steve and myself for Chanukah... I do hope as the holiday time starts.. that everyone can keep stress in perspective.. and annoying relatives to a mininium...and even if you have to deal with the annoying relatives for a while.. squint and it makes them look funny... hey it works for me.. sometimes I can squint just right and make them almost disappear.. hey its better than stress eating... and is a good dose of personal humor...
Have a magnificent weekend...
Wish me well
Wish you well too

I love your suggestion about the squinting! I'm gonna' try it! I've got a few I'd like to squint into thin air!

hmmmm...never thought about squinting at 'em before! I'll have to try that! ;-)

I like the squinting idea. I will definitely have to give that a try. lol

I didn't go shopping on "Black Friday." I'm just not in to that. I hate crowds and overspending.

Thankfully we don't have a lot of family around us to put up with, just my sister and that is enough. I shopped on black friday, not because I had money to spend but because we needed a new TV and they had them on sale for more than half off and I bought a few things I can resell later. We can't afford to overspend with both of us out of work. I was lucky that we were able to trade a computer Ken built from spare parts for the camera I wanted and thats gift enough for me for the whole year! Can you send some of that cold weather my way? Its still a bit too warm for me. I have a few long sleeve things I'd like to wear. Hope you have a wonderful day!

I decided we were not going to put up with the annoying relatives and skipped out on Thanksgiving.

It was the most relaxed Thanksgiving I have ever experienced.

I will remember the squint idea.

It was old in NY the day after Thanksgiving. 17 during the day and 10 (TEN I SAY!!!) at night.

I HATE the pressure to spend a ton of money on Christmas. It's like it's become all about spending tons of money. I use to do the Black Friday thing. Not anymore. Fighting the crowds and being in line at 2 or 3 or 3 am just isn't worth the money I'd save.
