Thanksgiving Eve is in the books

at Chez Potchery, and with only a tiny bit of blood shed (literally)...I shoved my hand in a drawer looking for a can opener and the food processor blade got me. ouch. My kids were both there and we all kind of thought we might be spending the evening at the urgent care place getting stitches, but a Diego bandaid is all I needed.

The girlfriend DID show, and as of right now, I feel completely bad for her situation, so she is welcome. Some weird drama with her kids and her ex and her ex's new wife (who I graduated high school with if we are keeping score). Now, I still don't get why someone MY AGE would want to be romantically involved with MY DAD, but whatevs.

We threw together a fun little barbecue with hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, baked potatoes (sweet and regular), corn on the cob, salad, fruit, and s'more fixings. We had a fire in the fire pit, had some drinks and now everyone is either watching Holiday Inn, or catching up on Biggest Loser and blogs (only I am doing that actually).

I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday, and I will wow you with pictures of my rock ass trifle tomorrow. (Think angel food cake in the shape of turkeys).

Aside from the injury (ouch, I hate doing things like that!), it sounds like a very nice evening!

Looking forward to the trifle pictures...

thank god for diego bandaids : ) sounds like a great evening, sans the injury.
i can't even fathom someone my age wanting to do my dad. i think i just threw up a little in my mouth. it might have been turkey.

Thank Goodness no Urgent Care run and glad things went relatively well with your dad!

Need the trifle photo! And anyone of any age would be CRAZY to date my dad (other than my mom who adores him) because he is demanding and crabby and a nerd too. Yay for a fun night though! And what kind of fire pit do you have? I want one, but don't know what kind to get!
