Post Thanksgiving

Drew and I drove down to Mesa Wednesday to (1) get his lap top fixed by the Geek squad and (2) have Thanksgiving dinner with my cousins. We left several hours prior to dinner because we were expecting traffic and we didn't know how long it would take to get his lap top fixed. We arrived at the Mall plenty early and it took only 45 minutes at Best Buy's Geek Squad, mostly waiting our turn. Once Drew saw a Tech it didn't take long at all, so off to Misty's house but she was still at work. With several hours to kill we checked out a local movie theater but   the only movie of interest was Breaking Dawn and Drew is not a Twilight fan so we passed on the movie, had lunch at Panda Express, then walked around the Mall for a bit before returning to Misty's; by then she was home but we were still three hours early.

Misty would not let me help with dinner so we visited with her while she buzzed around the kitchen, and visite4d with the kids as they popped in an dout. One of our cousins and his family were late due to a late appointment... you know how that goes LOL seems like holiday meals are never on time for one reason or another. Once everyone arrived we had a great dinner; it was nice to see everyone again. Afterwards Misty sent us home with a large loaf of homemade pumpkin bread.I drove us back up the hill back home while Drew slept, and once we hit town I drove to Mom's and gave her and Deb half the loaf, then drove home. As soon as we arrived I headed right to bed; I was bushed!

Friday I finally packed up all my Samhain decorations and got the tree up; today I put the Samhain decorations into storage, loaded up boxes of Christmas/Yule decorations and decorated the tree and fireplace while Drew played games on is lap top... and cussed and yelled (sigh). I thought games were suppose to be fun; how can it be fun if it pisses you off?

It's looking like Yule around here :)
