If we were having coffee, I’d tell you to stay at home.
Not because I’m being the ornery bitch who doesn’t like to have people over, but because Sam and I have been fighting off colds this week. Mine has been going on for the past week and seems to have peaked yesterday, but Sam is better today thankfully. Little Man also developed a cold that required him to stay home from school on Thursday, but he recovered suspiciously quickly and returned the next day. Baby Girl is safe…so far. (Knocking on some major wood.)
After I complain about this fall being one allergy-sinus-cold thing after another and finish up my pity party, I’d tell you that I’ve been sitting on my ass all day watching the Gamecocks football game (boy did I pick a bad time to regain interest) and testing out the Star Wars Battlefront game Sam picked up from Redbox. I think I like the multiplayer part better than the normal play. I may trade in my Tony Hawk 5, since I wasn’t into it like I thought I’d be, and get Battlefront.
I’d also tell you that Little Man received his grade on his service learning project. He had to do a PowerPoint presentation in front of the class and was graded on how well he spoke, eye contact, typical stuff like that–he made a 100. He was super proud of himself and so are we. 🙂
Baby Girl has been her usual feisty little self. She has been amusing us endlessly with her vocabulary. Now everything from a butterfly to an airplane is a “doggy” and most foods (unless they’re ball shaped) are “bites.” She saw a picture of chocolate the other day and said, “Mmm, bites!”
Before you leave, I’d tell you that I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving. We are going to my mother-in-law’s and I am making a crockpot macaroni and sweet potato pie (both my grandmother’s recipes). I can’t wait to get a slice of the pie! My grandmother always loved to tell the story of when I was about 4 and how she held me down to make me try a bite of it since, being picky, I refused to go near it. While I wouldn’t suggest holding a kid down and forcing her mouth open to try food, I did indeed like it. The little bit of nutmeg in it really makes it stand out from the other sweet potato pies I’ve tried.
That’s all I have for now–how did your week go? Do you have a particular dish you either look forward to making or eating for Thanksgiving?
