Happy thanksgiving everyone!

I just want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! I had a very good dinner, and tomorrow I’m going chocolate shopping. We’re going out to dinner at Red Lobster Tomorrow night!


I think I officially dropped out of NABloPoMo! I skipped a lot of posts, and I really don’t feel like going back and making them up. I’ve had about a week and a half where I wasn’t sleeping really well, and I was having bad headaches, so that was the problem. I’m hoping that it’s worked itself out now, as I’ll be leaving for my grandma’s next Wednesday! I do intend to start blog365 next year, and see how long I can keep going! I did the whole thing in 2011, we’ll see how long I can keep blogging daily this time.

I missed church today.

Because I had a really bad headache, and didn’t feel like going. I had to call and cancel the bus, so they wouldn’t come pick me up. Otherwise the driver would’ve came here for no reason, I’ve had that happen when I’ve been riding, (we go to the place where we’re picking someone up and they aren’t there, and they didn’t call,) so I always try and call.

Yay for “I’m still here” type posts!

Because I’ve had a really bad headache all day, and I need to get myself to bed so I can get thee to church in the morning! I didn’t want to skip this post though, so I decided to write a quick one.


Today we went to lunch at a Chinese food buffet. I’d never had a Chinese buffet before, so that was interesting! After lunch, we went to the store to get the cat litter I forgot last time. I forgot cat litter, (of all things!) I’m not sure how I managed to forget cat litter this time, but I guess we’ll be putting it on the list next time! We came back, and Melissa made ham and bean soup! I really like ham and bean soup! It’s the kind where you soak the beans overnight, and let them cook on the stove for about an hour and a half.


First, I’d just like to wish everyone a happy veteran’s day! We didn’t really have a whole lot going on here today, so Melissa and I made rice crispy treats. Lol, when we don’t have much to do, we like to cook stuff! I hadn’t made rice crispy treats for a while, (probably about 3 years,) so we actually had to look up the recipe.

I got to watch the debates.

I got to watch the debates today, after not watching the last ones. Last time they weren’t live streamed, and I decided not to watch them after some of the post-debate coverage. I remember watching debates when I was in high school, we didn’t have all the primary debates, (maybe a couple.) Primary debates really didn’t start to take off until around 2007-2008. I also don’t think we’ve ever had the concept of doing 2 debates in the same night until this year. Usually it’s just one, Lol I’d like to see all the candidates pile on stage at once! I think that might make for an interesting debate!

The bus was late today.

The church bus almost didn’t show up today. I had to call the person who runs it to ask where the bus was, because I thought I missed it! It turns out, that the driver forgot he was supposed to be filling in for someone. The reason why I thought I missed it, was because sometimes they get here a bit early, (although when they do that they usually wait.) Just as I was getting settled in church, the strap on my purse broke! This isn’t good because I really do need to wear the purse on my shoulder so I can have both hands free! I’m thinking it can be glued back together.

Day trip.

Today I went with my family to a birthday dinner for my uncle. We had to drive about an hour to get there. We ate at a Chinese food restaurant, (Chinese food is like my favorite!) We just got home about an hour ago. Yeah I skipped a post last night! I had a really bad headache, and just wanted to get to bed. I skipped it on both blogs.

Thursday lister: extra-long list of list updates!

OK Ok, so I skipped Thursday Lister posts last month because of Write 31 days, which means I skipped list updates as well. It’s going to be an extra long list of updates this month!
Completed goals:

  • 39.Find and start using an RSS reader again. Completed 9/17/2015.) Feedbin was a major failure, and didn’t want to work for me at all! However, RSSdose works extremely well!
  • 45.Join Hulu.
    (Completed September, 2015.) I know it was a Friday in September, I just can’t remember which random day I happened to sign up for Hulu!

  • 46.Download Kindle for PC.
  • (Completed 9/1/2015.) It took some work to get my device registered, but I can now have books read to me using the accessibility plugin, (as long as I keep a Windows 7 system around.)

  • 55.Fast at least once. (Completed 9/11/2015.) Our church did 3 days of fasting from September 9th-11th, they held a prayer service on the last day. I knew I wouldn’t be able to get to the prayer service, but I still participated.
  • 133.Adopt a cat. (Completed 9/18/2015!) I adopted Tigger from my local animal shelter, I had to go sit through a psych eval to do this thing, but I survived!

Goals started:

  • 1.Look into finding a new church. I got to go visit another church a couple weeks ago! I really did enjoy the service, and I’d like to go back again when they’re having a regular service, ( this was their anniversary celebration.)

  • 30.Try at least 50 of the sites on my “sites to try”list. I think I need to change this goal to 100 sites. The list is getting ever longer! Never-the-less, I’ve started and I’m at 5/50.
  • 127.Read 100 books. My first book was this one, my counselor recommended it to me. Lol, I’m going to read 1984 next!
