I Said, "I Must Be Fine 'Cuz My Heart's Still Beating."

Stinky girl and stinky cat.

Well, I kept thinking I was going to blog over this long weekend, but never got a chance. What that means, is that I was busy, but happily so. I'll try to quickly relate it all to you right now.

Wednesday night was very nice. The guy and I ate and had a great talk and harassed the new kitten and it was the perfect way to start the holiday.

I stole this pic and the next off my sister's FB. Here is Coadster torturing her cousin...

Thanksgiving was a lot of driving, but it was a nice dinner and very mellow. It was just me and my girls and my sister's family and my aunt and uncle. It felt weird that there weren't very many people, but it was really nice to be able to sit and have a conversation with the family who were there.

We got back around 6:30 and I made a little drink and watched Toy Story 3 with the girls. I'd say it was a pretty successful Thanksgiving all the way around.

...And here is Coadster battling her other cousin.

Friday was also very nice. I got a nice long run in, and a relaxing hot bath during the day. In the evening, I got the guy and we met our friend Pat and his family for Pagliais pizza. Pat and his wife are hilarious, so dinner was raucous and fun and the pizza was very tasty. I got home around 8'ish and tried to watch Alice in Wonderland with Coadster, but I fell asleep after the first half hour. I'm not sure if I was just that tired, or if Tim Burton was a little disappointing in this effort.

The guy got his back brace signed by Chris Horner. Pretty cool.

On Saturday the guy and I went to a cyclocross race. I had never been to one before and it was really cool. It was great to have the guy around to fill me in on the history and to explain its different aspects. I loved watching it and even have delusions of participating in one next year. We'll see.....

I hope everyone's holiday was long and busy in the best ways.

I was so excited that I could catch "Alice in Wonderland" this weekend, but then I lost interest about a half hour into it. I'm usually into his movies. Sweeney Todd and Alice are the rare exceptions.

Sounds like a wonderful long weekend, Churlita. I bet you are a bit sad that Coadster is back to school, but she appears to be doing very well.

The Guy sounds so useful to have around :-) And he has the whole cute thing going on.
