Morning Meandering….Turkey Coma…..

Good morning!  Hopefully you all had wonderful Thanksgivings and are now having a wonderful Friday!  I figure we all fall into one of these categories for today:

  1. Crazed shopped who got up at 3 am and proceeded to stretch and do squats and lunges before they charged out the door to get in on all the great deals…. leaping aisle after aisle in a single bound….
  2. Disgruntled worker….. HAD to get up to be to work to smile at the crazed shoppers (all awhile a little concerned  for your own safely (and rightfully so if you are standing in front of the “it” item display).
  3. 4 Day Weekend person, cheerfully rolling out of bed at a non-insane hour and staying in sleep pants for most of the morning while you have a bowl of cereal, an egg and a side of turkey while you watch movies.
  4. Normal work person who has to work but not at a retail store (WOO HOO!) and goes to work with a slight turkey induced hang over and can not seem to shake the “I just want to curl up with a book and read” vision….

I am number 4…… (LOL… Isn’t that a book title?)


Yup… I work today, in the office…. but I think it will be a nice quiet day.  And yes, I looked it up…. turkey does make you sleepy… which explains why yesterday after a delicious dinner and a game of QUELF (which was HILARIOUS!!!) we all watched Prince Of Persia and I promptly fell asleep in the chair. (now I wipe the sleep from my eyes and move towards a new day….

The way we do Thanksgiving is we have the BIG dinner at 1:00 PM.  I go all out, there was only 4 of us but I totally overdo it every year…. turkey, stuffing,. sweet potatoes, corn souffle, dinner rolls, pickles, cottage cheese, broccoli salad, shrimp, chips, dips, crackers, cheese, cranberries, 3 kinds of pie….

EGADS!

Then it is a free for the rest of the day.  Once I clean up after the BIG dinner…. yo are on your own.  If you are hungry, make a plate…..  there is no supper because we have grazed all day long.  :D

We ended our day with the 6:30 PM showing of The Deathly Hallows.  Chance and I had already seen it, but College son Justin had not yet so we went again.  I like to do that anyways when it is a long anticipated movie so I can see it more clearly and pick up on more details.

Weekend plan?  I have so much to do…. we leave next Wednesday for Honduras.  I have to pack, prep the house for the dog sitter, shop, pick up prescriptions, see my dentist, tan (so I do not burn), and prepare the guest posts – which I think are actually a lot of fun and can’t wait for you to see them :D

How about you?  What are your plans for the weekend?

  1. I think I’m in a 5th category – I’ll be watching football and basketball today. Don’t work too hard!

  2. My plans are too get as many books read as I can this weekend lol that and watch Legendary with my son.

  3. I’m a #3. I plan to read and blog and relax this weekend. I did my Christmas shopping online and just have to wait for stuff to be delivered.

  4. I’m not sure what category I’m in! I don’t work at a regular job anymore, choosing instead to freelance (after many years of the other kind of work).

    I’m more closely like number 3, though, as I’ve been relaxing and reading. I did get up early and do a couple of blog posts.

    After all that, though, I took an impromptu and unexpected nap, and now I’m going to make lunch (no turkey!) and watch a movie.

    Have a good one. I’m staying out of the shops until tomorrow. Not a fan of crazed shoppers!

    • I am not a big shopper and when I worked at Wal-Mart I loved this day to work retail and “people watch”….. they fascinate me! :D All my co-workers thought I was nuts but I really did love working this.

      Tomorrow I will do a little shopping and stopping in at a local book signing, but my shopping will be trip related….. not Christmas…..not yet :D

  5. I’m a number 5 – love all the football games on now. My husband and I were alone so we had a turkey breast but too many other things on the table. Now my frig is stuffed full and we’ll eat leftovers all weekend. :-(

  6. I guess I should add a #6?? I’m a 5-day-weekend person (I teach so I had Wednesday off as well) and have been a face-stuffing lazy bones so far!
    Today is catch-up-on-blogging-day… and hopefully tonight will be finish-homemade-Christmas-card-night!

    Hope everyone enjoys their weekend :)

  7. That’s how we do Thanksgiving here too…make your own plate after the initial dinner :D

    Sounds like a wonderful day was had and I hope your work day was quiet!

  8. I’d have to say that I fall into the #5 category – I love football and even froze my rear off at a high school game this evening!

    I was so excited to see that you guys played Quelf! I’ve played that with friends before, and it’s quite hilarious. :D

  9. I am #3 and this year I was in Hawaii so I rolled out of bed and onto the beach! I was feeling very, very lucky this year!
