I am on Thanksgiving Break! We get the whole week! Do you hear the angels singing?
Not only that, but it started with a Girls Night Out on Friday after school. We had tickets to the 4:00 showing of Breaking Dawn Part 2 The Saga Continues And Then It’s Over Forever So Let’s All Cry At The End.
I am not a crazy obsessed fan with a matching T-shirt, but I did buy my ticket ahead of time along with my Milk Duds. I would have pre-ordered the popcorn, but I couldn’t find that feature.
The movie was great. I don’t know if it will win any awards, but our theater audience was big on spantaneous clapping, and laughter, and tears, and whooping so I’d call it a success.
After the movie, we went out to eat. I mean, really – the milk duds, popcorn, and soda were just the appetizer. And it’s not like I ate a whole meal at dinner. A friend and I shared mozzarella sticks
and some kind of egg roll situation and that’s all.
And, no, I didn’t share my wine. That’s where I draw the line.
THEN . . . Saturday was a whatever kind of day. Plus church.
And Sunday was a baby shower.
But this, my friends, was not your normal baby shower.
THIS was brunch. At a restaurant.
No silly games or hats or toilet paper involved. Just food, mimosas, and good people.
Brunch is usually lost on me since I don’t like breakfast (for those of you who remember), but they had pizza and pasta and dessert and bread and crackers and all manner of carbs available.
In other words, I felt pretty full and sick to my stomach within an hour or so. And then I was obligated to eat cake, obviously.
It was WONDERFUL. I highly recommend you invite me to that kind of a baby shower – I will get you a really good gift, I promise.
Today I’ve been catching up on
TV lounging laundry and bills and the dishwasher-removal-of-dishes-that-I-can’t-stand and re-vamping my Antonym cards, as well as adding Synonym cards.
By the way, can you say synonym? Because when I say it, it comes out as cinnamon.
Here’s a sneak peek:
