Okay so its been a few weeks since I posted last. It has been a busy, busy few weeks. I’ll catch you up on the happenings of my life with brief summaries… more detail to follow.
TSO performance – I went with my mother to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I enjoyed the show and realized that the stage was just as much one of the performers as each musician was. The lightshow and stage movement work was amazing. I think my mother enjoyed herself too and that’s the best thing. I always enjoy my time with her.
Annie visit – Over Thanksgiving I kept Annie, one of my best friend’s dog. She is the cutest Boston Terrier and was great visitor to have. Very well behaved and I can’t complain. My house actually felt a little empty after she left.
Grandma’s for dinner – I spent Thanksgiving Day with the people I love the most. I had dinner at my grandmother’s house along with my aunt, uncle, mother, and boyfriend. It was a nice day, wonderful weather, and allowed an opportunity to stop for a brief minute to count my blessings.
Carolina/Clemson game – My boyfriend and I took in the rival game at my friends’ house, Nick and Esther. All I can say is GO CLEMSON!!!!!!!!
Mom’s second Thanksgiving feast – Mom usually cooks for Thanksgiving and since this year we went to my grandmother’s she cooked a secondary Thanksgiving meal on the Sunday after. She had already thawed the turkey when my grandmother invited us so it had to be cooked anyway. But it was a lovely meal shared with the two of the most precious people in my life – my mother and boyfriend.
catch a cold – Two weeks ago I caught a cold that knocked me out of work for two half days. I’d try to go in and then would have to go home. Nasty, nasty cold. But I stocked up on Vitamin C and Tylenol Cold and that seemed to do the trick.
Chicago travel – I got all better in time to travel to Chicago for a work conference. The city was beautiful all decorated for Christmas and it SNOWED!!!!!!!! I’ll write more about this soon.
Christmas shopping – I have started Christmas shopping. I have just a few more things to purchase to finalize this years gifts.
more petsitting – I have also now become a professional petsitter apparently. I checked in on Phoebe, my godcat, who is owned by the wonderful pair Matt & Shea. And then the following weekend I was responsible for checking in on a trio that belong to Nick & Esther… they are Dusty, Ally, and Roscoe.
So that’s been my last few weeks. Along with working, it has been extremely busy. I’m hoping it will calm down soon so I can think. But the holidays are making that difficult. Hopefully I’ll have more time to write again and more frequently soon. I still need to make final comments on my California trip and now Chicago as well. Stay tuned…
