Thanksgiving 2011

A lot happened on Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving morning, Matt and I did a lot of packing.
And while Matt was taking a shower I thought it would be a good idea to start packing up the bathroom linen closet.
As I was packing up the box, with my insane hair product collection, I noticed that the hand towel was under the box making it unstable.
As I flung up the towel from underneath the box I see it, flying in the air.
Slow motion, “Noooo”
Matt’s cell phone is airborne and “Plunk!” went directly into the toilet.
Sidenote: Matt’s cell phone is, no lie, about five years old. He forbids getting a new one because this old honker has a blue tooth connected to it. Side, sidenote: We do not have Smartphones or cable. I know, so weird of us.
So when Matt’s cell phone landed into the toilet, I naturally felt bad and a little excited. (Yesss, we can finally get Smartphone’s!!)
Nope. Tell me why, that son-of-a-bitch was/is still working!
Nothing, I mean nothing can kill this phone.
So much for my Smartphone fantasy.
Oh well. I was happy that Matt had a phone because we had a lot going on this weekend with moving.
Thanksgiving day we go to my in-laws house in the afternoon and then we go to my parent’s house around dinner time.
We had a great time at the in-laws catching up with Matt’s brother and his girlfriend and her child. We bought Chase with us and her son loves playing with Chase.
We ate lots of yummy food! And my father in-law even let us borrow his pick-up truck for moving day.
And guess who drove it home, Me!
I told Matt, “I never drove me a pick-up truck before.”

I went instantly country. I loved every second of it.
After dropping off the pick-up truck and Chase we headed to my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner number two.
A lot of my mom’s family came over and it was so nice to see everyone.
Later that night my sister and I decided that we were joining in the madness, the madness that is black Friday shopping.
(Even though it was Thursday night. All the sales started at midnight here in Baltimore, was it like that everywhere else? I think that’s the dumbest thing ever. Those poor workers. I felt guilty about going out but I really wanted this camera, more about that later- OMG I love it!)
For the last three years my sister and I and our best girlfriends have gone out black Friday shopping. We mainly just go to Walmart and help each other get the big ticket items.
We drank a lot of coffee and we were just a little hyper
This year, we all got Wii’s. (Other items included; laptop, wireless printer, digital cameras, Blueray players, portable DVD players). Basically, we all got everything we wanted and had a lot of fun while doing it.
We love the excitement and madness of it all.
But I have to admit, this year some people got evil. My sister and girlfriends witnessed a woman repeatedly ramming her cart into another woman’s body! Like who does that. Some people act like flippin animals. Nuts.
But other then that we had a great time!
Our weekend was so packed. I have so much to share, more to come soon!
Hope everyone else had an amazing Thanksgiving!
