SO LET ME EXPLAIN
I know I promised to write at least once a week and on Fridays. And I was really planning on doing just that. I have so much to tell you. And I'm sorry that I'm late, but I can explain.
See...I am hooked on The Young and The Restless. Don't ask. I know, I know, but what can I do? And I would have been all right if they would have kept the show at it's old time of 7:30...but NOOOOO...it runs at 5:30 every evening. And now twice a week, thank goodness, I have students at that time.
So big deal you say. And usually I would have agreed with you. BUT...this week Colin found her boyfriend kissing Anita, Britny's MOM! And John is hot on the trail trying to find out who is really Jill's birth mother. And what is Catherine hiding? And Michael spilled the beans and now Christine is off looking for Paul and everything is a mess.
I know that in the course of real life these things may sound trivial to all of you...but hey this is important stuff. I mean how does all of that compare with my own little life?
Our government sorta makes Al Capone look like a good guy. Everyone is reluctantly off to Annapolis where Bush has demanded a command performance. The teachers are still on strike. Teachers and kids alike will suffer from this for a very long time. The country will probably go into a further slump as teachers go into their second month without wages. Olmert doesn't care. Sderot is living in the blitz that our evacuation from Gaza brought them instead. Last night we had our second earthquake in a week...both around 4.2!
But Genoa City is a mess and all those rich people are in trouble. And I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Some of it I already know but shhhhhhhhhh don't ruin the fun.
Thanksgiving was a big yahoooooooooo. My friend Rena outdid herself once again. Thirteen for dinner. Two...yup count 'em two turkeys. Stuffing. Sweet potaoes. Mashed potatoes. Green bean casserolle. Brussel sprouts with smoked duck cubes. Two kinds of cranberry dishes...not an easy task as we do not have fresh cranberries in the is country and they had to be imported. Anyone coming bring cranberries :). Corn bread. And three pies...apple...lemon merangue...and PECAN PIE.
We were stuffed more than the turkeys. Like locusts we filled out plates. And I don't know what everyone was looking forward to more...the food or the company. This is a set group of thanksgiving diners eating a set meal and we all look forward to it every year. Yahooo Rena...Bless You!
My Joe College and Bubbie Channah got Take Away and I was so stuffed that I couldn't think of eating another bite. The next day I was sorry :).
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and, I for one have a lot to be thankful for. You, are part of that list.
Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
