I have had a very nice Sunday. Really, I've had a great weekend. And since I'm semi-lazy today, I'm going to resort to bullets for this post:
- Thanksgiving was good. I attempted to make a big breakfast for the family. It didn't go quite as well as I had hoped, but everyone found something they liked. Then we went up to my parents' house for the whole family dinner. My sister was only minorly snarky this year so that was good. The best parts were that Steven was here for the whole weekend, and Joseph came home from IU. It was so good to have Joseph around, and he spent some quality time with his siblings, especially Rachael.
- Black Friday Steven and I slept in and ventured out around 10. I got a great digital camera (as a Christmas gift from Steven) and a small camcorder, as well as some toys for Aaron. We only hit 3 stores then had a late breakfast at Denny's.
- Saturday I had to work 8 hours at the deli, which wasn't busy at all. Everyone did all their grocery shopping on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I personally packaged at least 200 pumpkin pies on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. The deli baked and sold over 1000 from Sunday to Wednesday. And a new record: I sliced 11 pounds of roast turkey for one lady.
- Today saw Steven leaving around noon for Fort Worth, Texas, and Joseph heading back to college around 2. I have been working on reproducing my dad's homemade dressing, doing laundry, and working on lesson plans. It is SO nice not to have to work at the deli today.
Anyway, I've been procrastinating all day. I need to wrap up the school work. Aaron, Daniel and I are going to play "Apples to Apples Jr." in a few minutes.
How was YOUR turkey weekend? Get any good deals?
Have a great week.
