Exhausted

I am oh so very tired today, but we had a great weekend.

Went to Brother's house to spend some time with Nephew-what a change in that boy! The Marine's have turned him into a man-a polite man, full of respect. Not that he was disrespectful before, but you can just see the change in him-he's proud of himself, and that makes such a difference in a person's attitude. I'm so proud of him.

Once I started thinking about it I realized that no one (that I can recall)in my family has ever served in the military. So I had to crack a million jokes about where the hell he learned that kind of behavior-but in all honesty I am very proud of him. I just want him to come home alive.

We went to a craft fair, and people kept stopping him and thanking him for serving our country, and every time someone did that I would tear up-I only actually cried once though, so that was ok.


We started our Sunday with my Brother showing up at 6am for breakfast-this after us not getting home from his house until around midnight the night before.

Then I proceeded to run around like a mad woman-cleaning, laundry, doing inventory of my cookware, shopping for pans I didn't know I needed, and wrapping gifts. All weekend I stayed up too late and got up too soon. (Isn't that a song? Poison I think. It is- "Look What The Cat Dragged In")

Anyhow, I am quite tired. And it's guitar lesson night for the boy, so no early bedtime for me.

And I think I'm getting a cold, which will piss me right off-Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I can't be sick. I'm actually baking this year, which should be interesting. I'm going to try my hand at homemade pecan pie, and lemon bars. I'll post pictures-it should be fun.

What are your holiday plans?
