Now I know how ray charles felt. slightly.

I woke up today half blind. I was shocked but soon realized my right eyelid was crusted closed. I have the pink eye. No idea where I got it, all I know is I got it. All day I've been wearing my glasses (with outdated prescriptions I should add) and it has not been that pleasant. I got the night off work, but to do what? Try to watch tv and get a headache? It just hasn't been the best night. Now TJ is home, playing playstation, and I finally have a computer to play with. 20 minutes into said computer time and I am already getting bored, go figure. Falling asleep is going to be hard, seeing as how I slept from 7am till 5pm preparing to work 3rd shift again. Is it wrong to take NyQuil when you aren't sick?

Preparing for thanksgiving has commenced. We bought the turkey, a 13 pound butterball beauty. We are so excited to not be alone this thanksgiving with a butt load of food. Mom, Dad and Joel will be here.... and they can have something to give thanks for, that they don't live in mississippi. I just wish we had more things to decorate the house with. Almost everything was TJ's from before we met. The TV, the laptop, the computer, the couch, the chair, the coffee table, the end tables, etc are all very bacheloresque and very much 'used'. The two things I have contributed to the house are the dining room table with no chairs that was handed down from D&S to my parents, and then from my parents to me and desperately needs refinished, And the hutch in the kitchen that was also given to me by my parents, and also is a wreck and needs refinished. Some day.... I tell ya, my house will look like a house and not a boys dorm room. The time will come. Later rather than sooner.

A nice batch of fresh cooked cookies. yum

I screwed up my first batch of no-bakes. How does that even happen? I forgot tomorrow after church is a lunch-dinner/ l-inner type of thing where we are supposed to bring a meat, a veggie, and a desert. SO I've been up cooking and no-baking for 3 hours now and wishing I were more julia child like and less.... me like. Oh well, they're christians, even if it sucks they'll rave about it and ask for the recipe. Thank God for that.

Debt free, please.

Starting Nov 1st, I will be in charge of the family finances. We'll see how this all goes. In my mind I am a financial genious but who knows how that will translate into real life. I also imagine myself drawing the perfect picture but it usually turns out looking like a 2nd grade art project. Wish Dave Ramsey and I good luck.
