Well, this past Monday my sister visited. The night before I got to cleaning bed sheets, blankets and so forth. I spent the majority of the night doing such and went to sleep around the time my parents woke up. I was up to answer the door when my sister dropped by. It was around two.
I finished up my chores then and my dad then came home around three. The rest of the time was just a blur really. I kept to myself and my dad took my sister out two times for reasons I still am not quite sure about.
Around four fifteen we all got in the car to pick up my mom then. We got her at four thirty-something and then headed back home. After getting refreshed all of us headed out to eat Mexican food. This is of course because my sister was here. It is pretty funny since the family ate Mexican three nights before on Friday.
Well, we all ate satisfying meals and then headed back for home.
The rest of the night is a blur againâ€¦ I know my mom and I watched some television. I have no idea what my sister was up to. What happened after that, I am not sureâ€¦ I might have gone to sleep, I might have done choresâ€¦ Who knows?
Well, Tuesday I was out of it. I never even saw my sister. She was gone before I was up again. I really donâ€™t remember much of it.
Wednesday was bloody busy though. My mom had off for work yesterday. Soâ€¦ I got up around seven thirty, fed the cats, ate breakfast and did what chores I could get done, done.Â Mom woke up not too long after. After she got all her things done, she took a shower and we started out day of errands.
First we dropped her dog off at the groomers. After that we headed to Home Depot to get some plant covers for cold weather. We then headed to the outlet mall where they were having a sale. We arrived five minutes before the doors opened, so we waited a while. Upon entering she got to work selecting shoes for the change of weather to come along. I merely wandered.
Well, she got her shoes, so we headed across the street then to get dog things to prepare for the puppy coming in next week. We got some chew toys, hair care products, food dishes and a new comb for the cats. They didnâ€™t have the puppy food we were looking for, however.
Well, after that, I believe we stopped by Walgreens. She went there to stock up on candy. She gets a ton of candy to take to work. She doesnâ€™t eat it, but her â€œkidsâ€ do. Her co-workers do as well.
When that was completed, I think we went to the Crafts store then. We went there to get fake flowers to turn into bouquets. This Thanksgiving holiday well will take a day out to visit my grandparentsâ€™ graves.
When that was done we then headed to s small grocery store to pick up some supplies for Thursdayâ€™s meal. We needed rice, chips, dip and to get some coffee creamer for my dad since he was running out. It was a rather easy task.
Around then it was twelve. We decided to stop back at home, unload our purchases and let the other dog, Auggie, out. Mom also needed to get a checkbook to make a deposit later. So, while she did her thing, I put the things hauled in up or at least in order and got a drink of water.
When all was set, we headed out again. This time we stopped at a different pet store. They had the food. It took a while to find, but we got it. There was also the need for birdseed, so four large bags of animal food was in order.
With that taken care of, we headed out further, this time to take a break and eat lunch. It was pretty cool. I got a smoothie and a turkey sandwich while my mom got tea and a veggie sandwich.
What wasnâ€™t cool as the bee that was next to us. While waiting on our food, I asked for a plastic cup and with it I entrapped the bee. Sadly, I had trouble in the plan after that. I tried using a napkin as a shield, but that didnâ€™t work to well. A worker there kindly handed over a piece of paper for an ad. I still struggled until the girl helped out. In the end, the bee was placed back outside and my mom and I were able to eat in peace.
With that breather, we headed out once more. We stopped at a bank on the way back and my mom made her deposit.
With those things done, we went back home. I got to work on the fake flowers, turning them into arrangements decent enough to put on my grandparents graves. While I did that my mom got her dog and eventually took him to the vet for a check up. I finished the task around the time she returned. She thought they turned out great. I asked about her dog and he seems to be all good, but he could still have healthier ears.
Well, I vacuumed then and finally had to rest for a moment. My cat was in my room and on the bed, so I plunked on down and petted him until my mom was ready to head out again. We were off to pick up tomorrow nightâ€™s meal. We had ordered some tamales. Yes, that was to be our meal on Thursday.
It was after that did I begin to drift off. Mom stopped by a shop to pick up some scones and then headed to deal with something about her glasses.
We got back home at five and by then I deemed it time to get in a nap. I hit the bed and slept until seven-thirty. After hugging my dad, my mom had me join her to watch TV the rest of the time. Iâ€™m not sure when I went to bed again.
Thursday I woke up at seven. I fed the cats, ate breakfast and then dusted the living room. Mom woke up then and I headed on to her room. Since the bed was unmade I only dusted half of the room.
Mom eventually settled back into bed to read and spend time with her dog. So, I got onto a project I had been meaning to do for a while. I pulled a chair out of the way and worked on dusting and reorganizing a forgotten bookcase. Boy that was dusty. I got it all in order though.
After that my mom got up and wanted me to help her with covering the plants with the covers we got the day before. I obliged. When it was all done and settled, I headed back in and finished up the rest of the dusting since the bed was finally made and I could put things on it. After that, I took a shower to get all the dust off me.
I felt pretty out of it all dayâ€¦ so everything is basically a blur. I know I stayed up well enough, but that I rested and at times might have dozed briefly. Well, when I finally decided to take a nap, my mom comes along to tell me dinner was ready. It was three thirty in the afternoon. Sigh.
I got up, ate three cheese tamales and some rice. This isnâ€™t our official Thanksgiving dinner mind you. We will be doing that on Sunday. Since the entire family is unable to come today, that was the decision. So, my eldest brother and his girlfriend will come along then and weâ€™ll get all traditional.
Still, it is pretty nuts if you ask me. We had three big meals of Mexican food for a week. Hello variety at its finest?
Anyway, after eating, I cleaned up what I could and come five oâ€™clock I finally got in some sleep. Yes, I still felt less than wonderful even then. Soâ€¦ I slept from then until around nine thirty or so. Pretty much I woke up around the time my mom went to bed.
Wellâ€¦ I took a shower, at the left over rice from dinner and cleaned up the dishes that piled up in the sink during my sleep fest. After meandering on the internet for a while, I decided it was high time to record all of this down.
This isnâ€™t the end of it though. Tomorrow my mom, dad and I will be heading off to the cemetery that holds my grandparents. It is about twoâ€¦ maybe three hours or so away. Yep, the bouquets I worked on Wednesday afternoon shall be put to use tomorrow. My mom thinks weâ€™ll be leaving at ten.
Saturday will be cooking and preparation day. Food will be put into the first stages of preparations and the house will be cleaned, all in the sake of having guests over for family time. Weâ€™ll likely be having turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls and who know what the other stuff will be?
Sunday will of course be the big day. My brother and his girlfriend will be over. My sister canâ€™t make it. She couldnâ€™t make it on Thursday and she wonâ€™t be able to make it on Sundayâ€¦ She might come by on Monday though. I really have no idea.
Next month will start of quite busy as well. On the second weâ€™ll be going on our hair expedition and the next day weâ€™ll be welcoming the new puppyâ€¦
Oh lordâ€¦ Vacation time my foot!
