Highlights from Thanksgiving

  • W never fails to amaze me at how badly he will treat N even in front of others, like my parents. What that says to me is that he truly thinks that the things he says and does are reasonable.
  • Boy, in my post earlier this week I nailed the menu Mom would produce for Thanksgiving dinner, except instead of green bean casserole we had carrots, proving once again variety is the spice of life.
  • Last night I managed to get a mysterious pain in my lower gut along with explosive diarrhea. I still have the pain, though not as strong as it was last night, and the diarrhea which is every bit as bad as it was last night.
  • Got much of my Christmas shopping done yesterday (before the mystery pain). I spent almost $300, but I probably still have another couple of hundred dollars' worth of presents I want to buy. I think $500 for Christmas presents sounds like a lot of money, but then again maybe it's not totally unreasonable. Maybe I'm just too cheap.

Well, that's it. That's all I got for now.

I'm surprised you haven't had more stomach upset with all the stress you've been under. Hopefully your stomach and bottom will settle down and behave themselves!

Sorry you are feeling bad; maybe it was those darn CARROTS, ha ha!
Myself, I concentrated on those big starchy piles of cornbread dressing, broccoli & rice, sweet potato casserole... saving the best for last => my aunt's pecan pie!!!

Steff - Yes it is a wonder I'm not more of a wreck more often. Maybe my body has adjusted to a certain level of chaos. ;-)

Val - Oh yes, the starches were definitely a big part of Thanksgiving dinner, too big a part probably. Mmmmm, pecan pie is my absolute favorite.
