Happy Turkey Day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day to day with family and friends.  I am definitely thankful for all the blessings this year.  Thankful for my family, my husband... even in our down moments.  Its been a growing experience and thats what we're suppose to do, keep growing.  Thankful for my children... watching them grow into little people each day.  They are hilarious and I love it!  It makes me a proud mama to see they are doing so well right now (lets hope it continues into teenage-hood, I have one on the brink of this).  Thankful to have a job... although its been pretty rough lately with the office politics, I ultimately love my job and what I do everyday and I actually get paid pretty well.  So that in itself is a blessing.

So I've had this past week off (besides yesterday) and the children have been home with me.  Its been pretty interesting.  The kids arguing and fighting over playing game systems or who's sitting next to mom on the couch.  Then there's the downstairs neighbors banging on their ceiling (my floor) because my youngest is running around.  I did talk to my office and complained about them... because we have 9-foot ceilings, they are purposely doing that.  My son does not purposely stomp... and its hard to make a 2-year old understand not to stomp, jump, or even fall out and throw a tantrum.  We do our best not to cause noise but sometimes its unavoidable with him.

Husband's Gumbo in the works...
Also... I cooked three times this week.  WHAT?! Yes, its true.  I don't cook normally.  I made homemade gourmet Feta & Bacon pizza with romaine salad on Sunday.  I then made cheeseburgers on Monday and Pork Tenderloin wrapped in Bacon with peas and rice pilaf on Tuesday.  All turned out really well.  I didn't cook last night, I took this allergy med because I had a major sinus headache and it mixed with my other meds and caused major sleepiness (and its non-drowsy).  I didn't eat at all yesterday and when I did eat last night... it was a damn grilled cheese w/ a turkey slice... horrible on the sodium.  Horrible.  I ate two sandwiches too! WTF? And they did go down... I haven't done that in forever.  Now onto getting my water in to clear out this sodium, definitely hard to do when I'm at home.

Outside of that... husband made Gumbo, a turkey, baked mac 'n cheese and a sweet potato pie for today.  We're going over to my mom's.  So yes, I didn't have to cook nada!  Just how I like it.  Haha...

Have a great day everyone.
