I'm missing some chunks of 2012, I mean I must be missing some! It doesn't add up to me at all. It surely can't be the end of November already!!! Perhaps I took a nap at some point? It's all just woooooooshed by - so very odd after 2011 went by in slow motion, henceforward and forever to be known as the year without end.
I am still fighting the mountains of paperwork and boxes over here. Fifty years of my parents things just will not depart easily for me. So stressful. Progress is obvious though - gosh, I wish I had taken photos! There was a long while where there were boxes piled nearly to the ceiling, along one wall, in our living room ... and in our hall ... and in our spare room ... and utter chaos in our garage.
Now it's just our spare room. But I've had to take a break, I just couldn't do it anymore. So many tears.
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, filled with all those dear to you and lots of pie!
My husband had the week off and we saw another three movies: Silver Linings Playbook, Rise of the Guardians and Chasing Ice, about the loss of our glaciers - frightening! Enjoyed them all.
We also saw a production of Hamlet and there was lots of good food and dessert too.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving at my cousin and her husbands, with her family and two of her family friends. My auntie, who I have been worried about, looked great and was her bright and perky old self, albeit aided by a walker now.
We steered clear of the stores but I did treat myself (crazily, extravagantly YIKES & holy moly!) to the new Vitamix blender this morning - not a penny off for cyber Monday. PHOOEY! I have been wanting one for literally years and I decided I'm not a spring chicken anymore and now's the time LOL. Happy Unbirthday to me!
And another one of those anniversary days, days of remembering, happened over the holiday week, the 24th would have been my daddy's 94th birthday.
The wooly lump lumps are doing well ... their tails and rear ends wiggle and waggle all day long. I sense they are happy here. Course I bribe them with biscuits and tummy rubs. We are a goofy, joyful bunch.
So that's pretty much the news over here. Wishing you all a great week!
