Thankful, Albeit Too Busy

Thursday: Woke up late, did a little Intarwebs, woke the Young Lady, made My Famous Mashed Potatoes, and drove them up to Glenair, MD, to have Thanksgiving dinner with the Mr.'s family at our new stepsister's house (you may recall that the mom-in-law remarried Sept. 1 after 16 years of widowhood). There were the usual mishaps: dinner was 90 minutes late as a result of turkey mistiming, the green beans with dill and bacon were just weird, and my sister-in-law's back was killing her so badly that she had to lie down (I revived her with my amateur massage efforts - go me!).

Friday: Decided to brave Rockville Pike (a/k/a the Ninth Circle of Hell) and buy the camera that I had been saving performance bonuses for two years to buy. I will blog the camera later! It's spiffy! Bought challah and chocolate pumpkin loaf at the Great Harvest Bread Company, then got home to discover that the Mr. had bought challah and cinnamon loaf. Good thing we all like carbs ... . Hosted sister-in-law (the one with the bad back) and nephew overnight.

Saturday: Entertained visiting family until they had to leave. Went to friend K's house for turkey soup, home-made biscuits, and salad, followed by leftover pies and cakes. Hung out with K and her family (including her visiting relatives) and watched the Marx Brothers on their big TV until quite late.

Sunday: Met my sister and her family, and my old buddy Mike and his son and Mom for dim sum. Then did chores until it was time to go to the grocery, at which point I could not start my aged car. Neither could the Mr. We started to wonder whether someone had been messing with it, because I had forgotten to lock its door, and one of our neighbors had reported that several people had had their cars rifled through and small items taken. We even had the police out, but the officer said he couldn't see any signs that someone had tried to jimmy the ignition. After much to do and fretting (and being take shopping by the Mr.), we finally tried again and made her start this time. Oh Ruby Lee, you fussy old thing, must you torment me like this?

I owe y'all a proper post about manga or something interesting! (And I have 32 messages in my LJ Inbox.) Later, I'm afraid ... .

YAY! You're back!

Sole internet downside to holidays: people disappear(inspiring rabid posting from other's at times)

Yeah, I miss people when they're gone. Even just little heartbeat-type posts and comments are good!

Re: Good to see ya!

Not erasing, nuh-uh! We're having some protracted discussions of Saiyuki characters, and I live for that stuff!   ;-)   But I'm letting threads that seem to be coming to an end do so, instead of thinking of another point to raise.
