Oh, it seems like this week just zoomed on by. I started the week with parent teacher conferences. The kids had a half day on Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the day was for conferences. I always enjoy talking to the families. Now, I have to schedule my conference for Tim. :) Wednesday was a half day of school for the kids and the teachers. I only had 8 students on Wednesday and two of those were dismissed early! When I came home I made a loaf of cranberry bread (sorry Beverly!) and cooked two pies....ok, they were frozen. I just heated them up LOL!
Thursday we spent Thanksgiving at Britt's. It was nice to go to her house. Dinner was wonderful. Mackenzie came home with us for a few hours. She fell asleep on the way to our house and slept for a while. When she woke up she asked for cold pizza. We didn't have any and the pizza restaurants were closed. Yes, her grandma spoils her!
On Friday I cooked a Thanksgiving meal all over again. It was quite tasty and this time I got the leftovers :) Today I'll be making a pie with what I have leftover. I did send some of the turkey to my mother and sister. Luckily I bought an extra turkey on sale and put it in the freezer for New Year's Day.
I started a sewing project on Friday. I cut out all of the pieces to make Jack a Christmas stocking. I started sewing on Saturday and my sewing machine sounds very sick!!! It sounds like it either needs a good oiling, or a belt might need to be replaced. I am just guessing here, but the sound was loud and squealing while I was using it. When I finish, I'll be sure to share a picture.
I also did a large amount of Christmas shopping. All of the children are done. It's those adults that are hard to buy for. I've been busy making some gifts too, but since I know some of the recipients read my blog, I'm not telling what I'm making LOL!
I packed up all of my Thanksgiving decorations. I'll have to have Rich take them up to the attic and then get down all of the Christmas decorations. I have so many. It's going to take a while to get it all done.
Last night I cleaned, dusted and polished the living room, just so I can make a mess getting all the Christmas decorations out and up!
After all the money I spent this week, can you imagine my surprise and frustration to notice that the hose on my Dyson vacuum cleaner was broken. I went on line and ordered a new one. It was $50 for just the hose. Don't go telling me you know where I could have gotten one cheaper. That always happens to me and if you do tell me I might just end up crying LO!
While on the subject of money, I stopped to get gas today and it was only $1.85. Boy, that's so nice to see when just several months ago it was over $4 a gallon. I've had my car for two years and I only have 16,000 miles on it. I don't do too much traveling but it's still great to only pay $1.85.
Well there it is, how I've spent my Thanksgiving week!
