We were able to get a rare family photo with at least two of us looking at the camera. (Of course, it was the two adults in the picture...but hey, we take what we get!)
The girls and I were tired and still feeling a little run down after being sick over the last week, so we ended up skipping Thanksgiving with Jeremy's family. (Did I mention that both girls have been sick again? Mackenzie officially had an ear infection and probably Addison too. I had the stomach virus. Misery!!) He was at work and I would have had to drive back with two very ill kids by myself, and I just couldn't face it.
Instead, we spent the evening hanging out with my family, watching the CNN Heroes special (we're nerds) and being entertained by two silly, slightly over-stimulated girls.
I was a bit surprised that Addison and Mackenzie went to bed without too much of a fight, since everyone was still here and their routine was pretty off. The bigger surprise came this morning, though, when Mackenzie slept until 8:40 and Addison slept until 9:15!! That's the latest they have EVER slept...and it was heavenly.
I am not nearly hard-core enough to face the Black Friday crowds, so getting out to shop this morning was never a possibility for me. I did see a tv at Wal Mart that Jeremy and I wanted for our bedroom. It was a really good price, so I decided to see if I could get it online. I set my alarm for 2:15 a.m., when I got up and logged on to check. A little surprisingly, I completed a very simple and easy transaction and my bargain tv should be on my doorstep sometime this week! I was back in bed by 2:45...mission completed.
Today was a big day for this 'house divided'.... the Alabama vs. Auburn game was this afternoon. Unfortunately, the results were not so good for my side of the household (in other words, Alabama lost), but at least the Auburn fan is at work tonight! : ) And Roll Tide anyway!!
I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I can't stand to even get on Facebook on Saturdays (or Fridays, in this case) during college football season. People get so mean and rude over their teams. I'm a fan and all, but I try to avoid conflict on Facebook...after all, these people are supposed to be my friends, you know? Maybe it's a southern thing? Ah well...in just over a month, it will all be over for another year!
