I've been on what I call "Holiday Mode" since Wednesday evening, as if you couldn't tell from my lack of blogging.
Wednesday night I cooked my bootie off and made as many dishes as I could ahead of time - a pumpkin pie, 2 apple cider cakes, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, and then I chopped everything else I would need for the next day.
Amazingly enough I was finished with all this in time to sit down and watch a movie with S and when that went off I went to CVS. At midnight. I know it sounds crazy but I wasn't the only nut job there. (I will elaborate more in a later post.)
The next morning I got up bright and early stuck my turkey & ham in the oven and then went to another CVS in order to find a few things they were out of the night before. Everything went really smooth and we ended up eating dinner at 1PM just as I planned.
After dinner here we went to my Dad's but since I was still stuffed, I only ate a dessert. Or two. Or maybe I lost count. But hey it's a holiday right?!
With everything going on I totally forgot to bring my camera with me. I managed to get two pictures. One of the food, and one of the real turkeys in my life.
Friday morning we hit the door running at 5AM and shopped till we dropped. Literally. We ended up taking a long ass nap when we got home and eating leftovers for dinner.
I'm on vacation today and tomorrow; which really just means I'm at home doing what I do at work -reading blogs, twittering, and slacking off. Only difference is that I have to make my own breakfast.
Oh you didn't know? My Stepmom usually makes us breakfast at work. It's one helluva perk.
