Apparently it’s unseasonably cold here, but I wouldn’t know ’cause I am scheduling my lunch and bathroom breaks around the Game Show Network. Ask me any trivia question, and … well, I might remember one answer. I just spent about 30 minutes on my Facebook page. I don’t think I spend more than a minute a week on that site normally – usually responding to friend requests. I have about 50 or 60 requests to join this group or take that quiz. It’s just so overwhelming. But this past week, when the drugs haven’t had me dozing, I have been catching up on snail mail, paying bills, e-mail, and other internet stuff. It’s amazing that if I don’t check e-mail just one day, it takes about a week to catch up again. So, imagine not checking it for over a week!
I haven’t told many people about my surgery. I’m kind of a private person, and I don’t go around tooting my own horn. So when my husband brought dinner home tonight, I was so surprised. The wife of a friend at work made it and sent it home with him (Thank you, Mrs. Weeble :). The military community is a great one. This, however, is the first place we’ve been stationed with a very small unit. Other units have had spouses’ clubs, and it wouldn’t have mattered that I usually keep to myself. We would have had meals lined up every night for at least one week with back-ups waiting in the wings. Having teenage children and a husband who is thrilled to get back in the kitchen and do his experimental cooking has made up for that. I am so thankful for them.
And now we are a week from Thanksgiving. Wow. Where did 2008 go? I really like Thanksgiving. It’s a no-gift-giving, fairly non-commercial, warm and fuzzy holiday. I like just hanging out with the family. And then there’s the left-overs. Turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, turkey pot pie, turkey chili, turkey and rice… Can’t wait!
