Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Turkey Weekend Wrap Up

#SOCsunday
It’s turkey day weekend wrap up here on the blog.

Firstly, I’m amazed that I’ve made it this far in the NaBloPoMo self-challenge.  A couple of flubs, yes, but overall, I’ve done really well.  I’m patting myself on the back right now.

I had a great weekend.  I loved spending so much quality time with my husband and family.  I guess we needed it because we’ve certainly seemed happier and closer with the extra time spent together over the four day weekend.  I heard before that 10 hours a week is a good amount of time to devote to your spouse.  I can’t vouch for that.  But I know we both feel more rested – yea! sleeping in – and better about things after the weekend.

We still haven’t gotten up the Christmas decorations.  It’s on the list for tomorrow but will drag out into a week long effort I’m sure.  I managed to see quite a few movies this weekend including Hugo (a great fantasy adventure with a tender and touching story), Six String Samurai (crazy post-apocalyptic romp with child that screams instead of speaking for most of the movie), and X-Men 1st Class (better than the last few X-Men movies).  I like the movies, but I do enjoy doing a lot of other stuff too and can’t sit and watch marathons like the better half can without getting antsy.  If you know me, you know I don’t do sitting down and being still very well.  Even at a tender age, I had to be moving and doing something and forget nap time.  Sorry, parents of mine.  I know I must have been a handful.

Speaking of being a handful I just remembered the time we picked on our teacher at day care mercilessly.  Man, kids can be pretty darn mean.  I’ll have to write more about that later.

Also, had a couple of great trips to the coffee shop and some random drives around in the vain attempt to find some Christmas lights.  Probably a bit too early for that, eh?

Okay, that’s all for now.  Five minutes goes by darned quick!

See you tomorrow, readers.

  1. I’m glad you got some time with your husband and family 🙂 It was a brutal return to work for me this morning! Good luck getting your decorations up, look forward to pictures!

  2. I always feel depressed after family vacation because I enjoy our time together. But then you get back into your routine… just in time for Christmas vacation! Yay!
