I know I have not written in a while and well, life happened all at once I suppose. Thanksgiving was good, it was just the two of us and so it was quiet. Although Doug asked his sister over for dessert with out telling me and I got mad about that. His excuse was that he thought I would say no. It is not that I would say no, I would have said yes, had he asked me or even discussed it with me. Instead, he did it behind my back and can you imagine how pissed off I would have been if she had shown up and I had no idea she was coming here?? We had a slight ‘come to Jesus’ meeting over that because I was mad. I don’t do that to him and I don’t expect him to do it to me. I understand that it is his sister, I don’t have an issue with him inviting her over, just freaking tell me she is coming!!! That was and is my point to all of this.
So he called her Thanksgiving night and she was not coming over, but would be here today to look at the clothes I am getting rid of. So today, we were waiting and waiting, she supposedly was to be here at 1pm. He called her at 1:15pm and she was not coming over, but had no intentions of calling to say that. That is what pisses me off. Then she tells Doug to bag up the clothes and give them to Sandy so she can look at them later. I have no intention of doing that. Mainly because all she had to do was come here for 10 minutes and look at them and she could not even do that. I am going to donate them to the Salvation Army across the street or something. I have had it.
Doug got a fantastic deal on our turkey. There is a store here that gives out stamps and if you filled so many books you got a free turkey up to 12 pounds. When he went to go get the turkey the smallest they had was 12.5 pounds, so he paid $.50 (50 cents) for our 12.5 pound turkey. It was a wonderfully juicy one too!! He made all of Thanksgiving dinner and it turned out really well!! In fact, the left overs were fantastic today!!
He also found a set of holiday dishes, 4 plates, 4 salad plates, 4 bowls, and 4 cups, a serving platter, a serving bowl, a butter dish, napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers, candle holders, creamer, sugar bowl, and gravy boat for $20. They are really cute and when it gets closer to Christmas I will show you the pattern on them. They all match. Kroger here also has holiday glassware for like a $1 each. Which we got a couple of glasses.
I changed the season on my blog to winter now. Since it is after Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner. I am going to go.. Ciao!!
