After Thanksgiving.

Whew! What a holiday weekend! It was so long and hectic. Wednesday was kind of a dead day for us, since we had to stay home and finish preparing for the Thanksgiving meal. Thursday was insane! We had several dinners to visit and errands to run. Errands, as in, pamper a spoiled old dog. The house sitting job I had over the weekend involved a rather pampered dog who has a way of really manipulating people. He gives me this sad look when he doesn't get what he wants. And he's like 100 years old, so there's no way I can teach him otherwise. The owners are suckers for him I suppose. He's a very sweet dog though.

Friday was pretty crazy too, since everything was open again. We ran all over town, looking for rugs and furniture for our house. We finally settled on the perfect bedroom and living room rugs. Can't wait to go back and purchase them. The bathroom is really coming along nicely as well. It's amazing how the pace has picked up!

Saturday was annoying as hell. The delivery men were scheduled for the "afternoon." Well, last weekend, the "afternoon" meant 4 pm, which is the very last delivery they can schedule into the day. We waited all day long last Saturday for the fridge to be delivered. Well, of course, this Saturday, the men come right at noon. We weren't exactly ready for them to arrive at that time, since they didn't give much warning (they called about 10 minutes before they appeared outside our door). But the stove and vented microwave were successfully delivered!

Sunday we "took it easy." Which still involved chores and errands. But we did stop and have a nice meal, a nice ending treat to the holiday weekend. Back to the real world tomorrow. Hope everyone had a wonderful time this weekend, hope everyone gave thanks! ^_^ http://welcomeconsumer.com

You know, as goofy as things were... I had a great time. It''s nice to see our new appliances in our place rather than the store. It''s good to have these puzzle pieces come together. I can''t wait for the full portrait.

Wow, sounds like you had a hectic week! No wonder you''re always on ''away'' on MSN ^_~ Mwhahahah, unfortunately we don''t we don''t celebrate Thanksgiving here, but it doesn''t mean I''m not thankful for everyone and everything I hold dear to me! It’s one holiday that should really be celebrated worldwide, if you ask me.

Anyway glad to hear your house is going well and that you had a good thanksgiving. Talk to ya soon!
