Thanksgiving Time
 

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here. Where has the year gone? Honestly the last thing I wanna think about is cooking a bunch of food and eating it. For the last 2+ weeks I’ve been sicker than I can remember being in years. A nasty cold turned into a nasty bacterial infection of the nose and lungs. Fun! I’m finally on the mend, but the antibiotics I got put on are ripping my insides apart. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on antibiotics, but I never remember my stomach hurting this bad from them! Must be one of those joys of getting old. So food just isn’t on my radar right now, and hasn’t been for 2 weeks.

However, I likely will end up cooking. I not only have to make John something to eat, but it looks like we have to feed and entertain his brother as well. I’m sure there will be some stories to tell about that. I need to make a new category. “Shit John’s brother says.” Before I knew we had him, I was pondering just going out to eat. Blaspheme I know, but I’ve never been a big fan of Thanksgiving dinner. The only part I like is the stuffing 🙂 I don’t even like the pies. Pumpkin and pecan pie, no thank you!

In other news, our house repairs have slowed to a crawl. I am assuming it’s because the weather has turned bitterly cold. We have a bunch of new storm windows sitting in our garage and new doors are expected any day now. I would personally like to see these go up sooner rather than later. They took all our old storm windows down so now we are just sending heat out the windows! Hell, they still haven’t finished painting the house and our porch is still unfinished. Yeah, getting a little annoyed 🙂
