Surviving Leftovers

Thankgiving always brings a lot of leftovers. I hate getting sick of turkey so quickly after the holiday.

The secret is to shake things up a bit and don't overdo it.

The day after Thanksgiving I refuse to make anything with turkey for a main meal. if anyone wants a sandwich, that's fine with me, but I won't do the turkey thing two days in a row.

I always make stuffed shells, because since discovering that simple recipe, it has been a bigger tradition than the main dinner itself.

Today dinner is just mom and me, so there will be an absence of leftovers.

Tomorrow, I'm going to do turkey pot pie, coz I'm not not a fan of tetrazini. (did I even spell that correctly)

The secret to surviving leftovers is to not force feed your family them every day. If you need any of my recipes, just give me a holler and I'll share.

So Much For The 30 Days Of Blogging

Tuesday night mom had a CHF spell and that just sent me into a tail spin. I don't know how I managed to get Thanksgiving done.

It sure as hell wasn't easy.

I'm still so tired from all the running and work I did in the last few days.

I just hope this is the last time for a long while that I have to deal with hospital stuff. I'm getting too old for this.

Stupid Cough

About a week ago I ended up with a cold. I was totally miserable. I had a cough, but it seemed to go away.

Until this weekend.

The cough is back with a vengeance.

I have always been a person that gets a cough that lingers and when I cough so hard that my head feels like it is going to explode.

Yay for misery.

Especially when I've got a big dinner to cook this week. Not that it matters, since no one comes for Thanksgiving anymore, and they never did even in the past years.

It is lonely.

I enjoy cooking, but I only cook for the same people all the time and no one comes to visit.

Found In My Sink

This is the first time since we moved into the new house that one of my cats found their way into the bathroom sink.

I'm surprised that it took so long and even more surprised that the cat that decided to nap her was Midnight.

Isn't he a cutie pie?

Home At Last

We brought mom home this afternoon, but not after a huge curfluffle with the wheel chair van. After we got her settled we went over to the old house and started to bring stuff over.

So much stuff.

I swear we'll never have it all out of there.

Almost all of my CDs have made it over and are hiding in the basement. There's still so much to bring over and much to get rid of. I don't know that there will ever be enough time to do it all.

It's been a busy day and I'm totally exhausted now. I feel like I could sleep for a week  or more.

Quick Update

I've spent most of the day in Jefferson Hospital with mom and my sister.

The surgery was done almost an hour late, but all went well and that's all that matters.

So now we can breathe a sigh of relief and take a nice long nap.

30 Day Writing Challenge

Today's topic is turn ons and offs

Is it a horrible thing that this isn't something that I think about anymore. How sad is that? I think that over the years I've become totally asexual.

I don't know that anything turns me on anymore.

OK, David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch and Peter Capaldi turn me on....but that's just on a general hotness scale.

However when it comes to turn offs

Hatred, bigotry and asshattery turn me off. In fact, if you display these types of qualities, I'm probably not going to want to talk to you let alone anything else.
