Quick Takes Friday, Vol. 8


--- 1 ---
Thanksgiving was nice and relaxing, for the most part. The turkey was yummy, although the bacon prevented the skin from getting crispy. But, there was bacon. We kept things fairly simple. I didn't even have a pumpkin or pecan pie. None of us LOVE them, and Blue Bell was on sale, so we went with ice cream. Last night, though, I oddly craved pumpkin pie. Must be some weird turkey association. If we're crazy enough to leave the house today, I may see if Kroger has any pumpkin pies left.

Sweet moment I caught while setting the table.

Beckett has developed a way to critique food. If he likes something, he holds it up in the air and babbles about it for a few seconds. Foods he's less than fond of get dropped unceremoniously off his tray. He approved of the turkey and disapproved the dressing. He seemed to like the cranberry sauce, but it was too slippery for a full, over-the-head approval.

Beckett had his 9 month check-up Wednesday of last week. He's doctor likes to do blood work at that check-up to check for anemia and lead and maybe some other things. I missed a call from her Friday evening, so I called the office Monday to find out the results. Normally they leave an "everything's fine" message if the results are normal, so I'm assuming something is up. Her nurse returned my call Monday afternoon to tell me that the doctor wants to discuss the test results with me, the doctor is out of the office until this coming Monday and no, she can't tell me anything, I have to wait for the doctor. Fun times. Last year at Thanksgiving I was hoping that Mr. B wasn't anemic. This year, I'm all "Fingers crossed for anemia!"

I woke up this morning with another sinus headache. It's beginning to become a Friday tradition. :P Today I was lucky in that Chris was here to watch the kiddos, make me coffee and start a shower for me so I could attack it with hot steam and caffeine since the Sudafed and ibuprofen weren't working. It has calmed to a dull ache, as long as I don't bend over, or move my head in general. Thank you crazy Texas weather.

I'm thinking I need to do a "5 Quick Takes Friday", since I seem to lose steam after five. I know my life has to be interesting enough to post seven random, interesting things every Friday. I suppose I could go to Walmart for five minutes. That should give me enough material for all seven posts today. The only problem is that I am not insane.

I can't decide where to put the Christmas tree. We have a nice, fluffy, big tree that is huge in our house, and we have a smaller, slightly Charlie Brownish tree that I bought last year thinking it would work better. I would really like to go all out and do the pretty tree, but I'm having a hard enough finding the room for even the Charlie Brown tree.
