A quiet Thanksgiving weekend.
I have a new job as a software tester for a small virtual company that has been around for 7 years. However vacation, sick, and holidays are all rolled into one. Because I have to save my vacation for Mixed Doubles Nationals and Womens Nationals, there is currently no holiday time available.
I worked on Thursday. Jeremy worked on his iPad application. The beagle harrassed us both. Jeremy made a tagliatore sauce for dinner. Nom nom nom.
Friday Jeremy headed up to Langley for some curling. I dropped the beagle off for a half day of day care while I worked. I had some connectivity issues off and on, that were very frustrating. No true Black Friday shopping. However, I did order a down jacket from Eddie Bauer. Need to keep warm in Duluth, Minnesota and Grand Forks, North Dakota this winter.
Friday night after work, I headed to Bellingham to hang out with Jeremy's cousin and his wife. Byron got some beagle play time in. We only stayed until about noon on Saturday. I had to get home for the Chin/Go/Eng Thanksgiving dinner. Dinner was tame compared to normal. There was lots of food. I restrained myself to one plate and skipped the cheesecake my mother brought for dessert.
When I got home, Byron and I played for a bit and then I rented a silly chick flick and went to bed.
Today, there was more daycare for Byron. I cleaned the master bathroom, washed three loads of laundry, and cleaned dishes. I also spent some time in the yard hacking down some dead bush and briar branches that had encroached into our yard from the neighbors.
Now, to pick up the dog and go to Mixed Doubles curling!
