Now that I'm back home from the in-laws' and things have calmed down a bit, I finally have time to blog. Not that I have anything interesting to say, but you'll just have to bear with me anyway, won't ya?
I was so happy to read everyone's blogs and see that you all had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was nice too, but there were many aggravations along the way, but that's just typical for me, I think. We left home Tuesday night for the 3-1/2 hour drive to my in-laws' house on the west coast, where stupid arguments ensued over me wanting a bottle of water, and then later, a cup of coffee. No need to get into the nasty details. Just suffice it to say that being denied beverages does not a happy Tiney make. But, I did have to pee too, so that upped my chances for some java. Stopped at McD's where I was told to "hurry up", but instead I kind of waddled along, enjoying my few minutes of freedom from
And then he decided to be funny, and hand me my coffee while facing away from me. Silly McD's boy! I just know he secretly, in his heart of hearts wanted to be famous!
Now let's jump to Thanksgiving day. Ah, the aromas coming from the kitchen! If there's one thing my mother-in-law excels at, it's cooking. Oh, yummy! One of their best friends came over, with her 19 year old son (whom I have high hopes will some day fall in love with Mikayla, marry her, and make gorgeous Cuban/Italian/Polish-looking babies with. Hey, the 8 year age difference won't mean much 10 years from now, right?) and her mom.
Sitting around the kitchen table eating appetizers. Had to crop out an un-named relative that has an aversion to my blog. But that's the back of Mikayla's head, and her future husband and mother-in-law across the table.
Jimmy and Mikayla chatting, and un-named relative's arm.
Took a few shots of the girls hoola-hooping. Wow, Madison is good! She was counting to 100 while hooping. Mommy was impressed!
Then Jimmy and Mikayla's hubby decided to play some pre-dinner ping-pong. Ooh, look at these action shots!
Oh! Almost forgot. I've been told I'm not to show before and after pictures of Jimmy's life changing diet just yet, but these don't count because he's not shown in his shorts, bare-chested and de-furred, right? Just look at the difference a couple months have made in his face! Yes, he looks like poop in the Thanksgiving picture. I think he was really really tired or something.
Now it was time for food, and lots of it. But first, the turkey carving has to be done. With precision. For about 40 minutes. Again, un-named, cropped- off- head relative...
So, I had started eating, when I glanced at Jimmy's plate. Holy gorging!!!!! And this pic was taken after he'd already dug into the plate! Ummm... had to put a funny face over the guest at the head of the table. Accidentally snapped the picture while she was shoving something in her mouth. LOL
Heeheeeheeeeeeeeeee. Just noticed I unintentionally took a crotch shot!
Little did I know at the time, that he'd finished all of that and then went back for seconds. Here's the end result. Burp.
All I can say is, this is what happens when a man has been eating chicken, fish, veggies and sprouts for over 2 months, and he gets the go-ahead to cheat for one day. Disgusting, ain't it? He even had two servings of pumpkin pie and ice cream. See?
You think he might be sending me a message here?
And hey, would it be a holiday without a bathroom diva picture? I just don't get it though. While putting on my makeup, I felt like I had too much on. Then I take a picture, and I look friggin' anemic! And looky there, HOLY BOOBS!
It was a nice few days, but it was good to head home. But what a boringgggggggggg drive it is! Ugh, miles upon miles through the Ocala national forest. You'd think, for all the boredom I'd at least get to see some critters on the side of the road, but nooooooooooo, I saw nothing but one armadillo. Don't get me wrong, he was cute, but when you see deer and bear crossing signs, you want to see something other than an armored critter! Nope, this is basically all I saw...
And could someone please tell Jimmy that it is NOT funny to turn the lights off just so we could see how dark it is? Ya know, it just doesn't seem safe to do so while driving at 80 miles per hour.
Okay, Thanksgiving is over. Bring on the next holiday!!!!!!!!
