We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year. Last count was 14 guests. We just moved here in July. The kitchen is the size of a matchbox and we still can’t park the van in the garage.
Needless to say, we’ve been a little busy this weekend trying to whip things into shape. We found some inexpensive put together storage cabinets that are helping my kitchen situation. The monsters found the carpet in their playroom. I emptied the refrigerator yesterday and cleaned it. Now it’s almost ready to be stuffed with thawing turkey and all the other goodies I need to pick up this week.
I’m so thankful that I already hit 50K for the month, because even though I have this next week off (except possibly Friday), I’m going to be busier than a one-legged man in an arse-kicking contest. Which only reminds me of a different kind of arse contest from Road to Shanhasson. *falls over laughing*
I have touched Return both Friday and yesterday. I’m still in the dream sequence. I think I’ve made 500 words in two days. But I’m hoping to finish this section today while football is on. (Football implies holiday from cleaning the garage as far as That Man is concerned.) I still need to make another trip to Wal-Mart for drip pans for the stove, and then clean it; I need to pick up all the school and meal essential food items for us; and then make a master Thanksgiving grocery list that I won’t pick up until Monday, Tuesday at the latest. I also need to write out a schedule for preparing as much ahead as possible, leaving only the turkey for Thursday and reheating the other items.
But someway, somehow, I will write today.
