Yesterday, I went to the DMV and renewed my driver's license. This morning, I got my flu shot. And it hurt like hell. And I will tell you what, always bring a book with you to the doctor's office, because is there anything more typhoid-laden than waiting-room magazines? I doubt it. But anyway, I am checking sh*t off my to-do list like a MACHINE, I tell ya.
I'll let you know when I finally get around to scrubbing the bathtub. It's starting to skeeve even ME out.
In other random news, I had a dream (I KNOW, I KNOW) the other night that I was an investigative journalist embedded in the Duggar clan. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa. My big scoop was that Michelle Duggar is able to get a good night's sleep because she puts the littles into their car seats and then flips them upside down so they sleep upside down, like bats. Evidently it works like a charm. In my dreams. Oh! And last night I had a dream (SHUT IT) that Little Girl came back! It was awesome.
Tonight, I have to prepare a pickle-and-olive tray (EWW EWW I know it's GROSS but that's what was requested of me EWW) to take to Thanksgiving Dinner. I plan on also taking some deviled eggs (YUM) to counteract the olive nastiness.
Oh! And for the first time ever, I will visit a retail establishment on Black Friday. I will be volunteering at the adoption center (which is inside a retail establishment, so it totally counts) for a few hours. I'll get to see the madness close up. While being able to retreat into the adoption center if sh*t starts hitting the fan. Although I'll be at a pet store, not the electronics aisle of Walmart, so things probably won't get too crazy. Damn it.
This morning I saw a pheasant - a PHEASANT! - in the backyard. Coooooooool.
Let's see. Thanksgiving. Hmmm, looking back, LAST Thanksgiving weekend, I had a tooth go south on me, which ended up needing a two-grand root canal. (*sob*) Yeah, Thanksgiving's not as much fun when you can't CHEW. I will tell you what, when I called the dentist's office the following Monday morning and they said they could fit me right in, I practically SOBBED, I was so thankful. Ha! Giving thanks. So THIS Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I am not in pain. I am thankful for my three boys, and for the three little fosters in the spare room. I am thankful to be here.
Okay, guys, spill it. What are your Thanksgiving plans? What are you thankful for, this Thanksgiving?
