Thanksgiving! Birthday! Icons! Stuff!

Thanksgiving:
I don't think I want my brother to get us a turkey for next year. I mean I am sure it tastes awesome, but dude, who has thanksgiving as a DINNER? It's 7pm and we haven't seen a slice of anything. Granted mom has been running around doing the pet sitting gig, so that took a bit, but I mean really? The dang turkey was ordered, so it's fully cooked, poke it in the oven, stab it, and it is ready in 2 hours. Sheesh. I'll report how good it is when we actually have some. Which, thankfully, but the smells coming from the kitchen, should be soon. I'm eyeing the pets... bad sign.

Birthday:
THANK YOU to everyone who texted, FB and LJ'd wishes! Ya'll are some of the bestessess! Made turning 29 easy(ier) - no, really it was an awesome day in the end.

Since tiah15 and I had arrived at my parents on Tuesday evening, we were there all day for my birthday, and as a bonus, my brother and dad were off - translation, I could get my presents early in the day! Yes, I am that anal, or vain, or just plain anxious! My parents got me a awesome (I think, we are going to test it out tomorrow) 32" TV! Finally, I own a TV that is not as old as me. And one that I don't have to leave the couch to turn on, or adjust! WOOT! And I was just looking at TVs. Bliss. My brother gave me a 8GB thumb drive (a fancy one from National Graphics) and a box of sweet tarts - "Twilight" sweet tarts, at that. :D mmmmmm tiah15 and I have something to munch on when we see the movie again. [Just made plans to see it tomorrow... love the instant connection] tiah15 gave me some YUMMY shower gel and body butter. I am smelling it every 2 seconds.

I hope to get some new jeans since mine are starting to get worn, or as the case of one pair in London, loosing a button. Heheh...

Icons:
Just entered 2 (two!) icontests... I am going to try to be back after my 6-7 month hiatus. Meaning, I hope to also get the icon com I run home_icontest back up and running also. HOPE is the key.

Stuff:
I have lesson plans I still need to do. I brought home grading. I need to figure out what we are going to do with the remaining 3 weeks until Christmas break. I get, for the first time, 2 solid, real weeks OFF! So I plan on coming home (with the girls) for that time and finally having a real break with my family.

Ok, just heard "grab a plate" so I am outta here and into the kitchen and body checking people - which, if you have met me, know that could only end up with me on the floor. Oh wait, I already fell down yesterday and have a big bruise on my right knee... wee.

Gobble gobble, ya'll!
