I’m thrilled to be talking about my favorite holiday — Thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving dinners with my family are huge multi-generational affairs. My brother and I have been planning Thanksgiving weekend for months now. I have four generations coming together for a weekend party. I have to be able to accommodate everyone's tastes and diets and this does take a lot of planning ahead of time. I need to ensure that everyone will enjoy Thanksgiving weekend in my home. Nestle makes my meals, meal planning and entertaining easier and tastier for this Thanksgiving holiday with their family size entrees.
I'm still have laptop woes, but they seem to be flip flopping from one laptop to the next. It is quite aggravating. My son is still grounded from said computers too. Right?
We had a trip to the ER yesterday . . . my son was limping around her for over a week and his leg just never seemed to get any better. I looked at it this morning and it was very swollen and he had a huge bruise running down the side of his calf AND there was this strange lump under his kneecap. Naturally, my momma brain starts working in overdrive and we all head to the ER to figure out what is up. Son is fine, tor tendons, which the Dr said is common for boys his age. Who knew?
My daughter is having a great week now though . . . she got her braces off today! She has only had them on since last March, which seems like such a short time to wear braces. However, she did have a rapid platal expander and retainer for an entire year before the braces. But, her smile is gorgeous. I was so pleased. She thinks she looks like a beaver. Go figure?
If you are looking for ways to confirm you are no longer funny, just head over to NickMom.com for confirmation. It's sad, I'm telling you. The confirmation stage, I know, I'm in it. My little brother told me a couple of weeks ago that I had lost my spark! How sad is that?! I think it is time to find my spark again! NickMom is giving me the gift of laughter on the path to my spark.
No one ever tells you when you get married to say goodbye to your former self. I'll be honest with you though and I’m telling you right now, just look in the mirror on your wedding day and say “bye self – it was nice knowing you". Because that is exactly what happened to me.
So you know when you left your children get on your laptop to play games and you suddenly start to lose time on your laptop . . . then, you decide to order a new laptop because you just don't want to share any longer . . . and then your son decides he knows how to download new games and does so without asking and takes other liberties with said new and old laptop . . . and then neither of your laptops work because they are infected with so many viruses and adware attacks that you can't even do one single thing on your brand new laptop . . . yeah . . . that's where I am right now . . . sifting through code . . . backups . . . grimaces . . . son grounded from laptops for the remainder of his life . . . it's so much fun I tell you . . .
