The Final Stretch!

November 28, 2008 7:00 am

Ahh, there are only two more days to go until NaBloPoMo is finally over. I don’t know what it is about NaBloPoMo, but the fact that I HAVE to write every single day, even if I don’t WANT to write… really brings me down. Either that or it’s the way my reader exploded this month and how I simply cannot ignore new posts from my fellow bloggers. Either way, I’ve grown tired and can’t wait until December 1st.

Whining aside, we had a great Thanksgiving and the kids even helped me to limit my food intake! Elliot is still pretty sick and has two ear infections on top of it so she pretty much demanded to be held the entire meal. Normally, my mom would have hogged her the entire visit but she was busy preparing the food so she couldn’t. I held Elliot while we ate and since she was grabby grabby, I scarfed my single plate and didn’t go back for seconds. She’s quite the HASAY supporter! Then, both kids were nearing meltdown so we had to grab them and make the forty-five minute trek home before complete meltdowns ensued. We barely made it home and got the kids to bed. That was another HASAY bonus since we didn’t bring home leftovers OR eat dessert. Thanks, kids. Thanks for caring about my waistline!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and that you Canadians enjoyed the day as well. HASAY resumes tomorrow so participants, get your asses in gear!

    Same here, hubby wanted to carry Cutie Pie in tp see the relatives but I got to chase her around for 6 hours and got to sit next to her while we ate, so I only got one plate and the hostess got to little sweet potato hand prints on her pretty white table cloth (sorry bout that one!). Hope Elliot feels better, I hate to see little ones sick.

    Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!

    Wow!! your kiddos really love you huh? Well, same here – I barely ate my first plate and since there was no ice-cream or whipped cream for the pumpkin pie i only ate a tiny sliver of it.

    Sorry your dinner was cut short. It always bugs me when I don’t get dessert after a “special occasion” meal. But of course, my waistline is grateful when that happens. The last time there was this REALLY amazing looking chocolate and caramely thing… ::sigh::

    Sprite sat at the kiddie table with the others and we sat with the adults! A first! So, yes, our meal was quite enjoyable!

    You guys have all got me wanting turkey and stuffing (and dessert of course) now. Dangit. It was another boring week here in Canada. I have some kind of stomach bug so I haven’t eaten much at all – um, go me?
