I love Thanksgiving. It's an odd holiday for me to enjoy because I'm not a big fan of the food. But, I can't think of a Thanksgiving I didn't enjoy.

My most special Thanksgiving was 6 years ago. My very special niece had just been born and was still in the hospital. I got to spend the night there with her and Amber. And this Thanksgiving I am anxiously waiting for my newest special niece to arrive.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Marlie on her 5th birthday

home sick

Not to be confused with being homesick, I am at home....sick.

This is pretty much the most boring thing I've ever endured, which is saying a lot because... Well, it's saying a lot.

To keep myself entertained I have watched the follwing:
1. Pride and Prejudice x 2
2. The Notebook - awful
3. Message in a Bottle - not very good acting
4. Sabrina
5. What Lies Beneath
6. Mrs. Winterbourne - Ricky Lake?
7. 2 episodes of Jon and Kate
8. Too many episodes to count of the Nanny
9. Dan in Real Life
10. the Cosby show
11. etc...

I started writing notes of what people should know upon my death. My bucket list of what includes things like petting a penguin, reading every book in my house, acquiring an art skill, and holding a monkey.

I played 105 games of Solitaire on the computer. I've won one round making my winning statistic 0%. I've played Cake Mania on nintendo DS. I'm better at that game than Solitaire, so far my sales are profitable.

My fever has stayed pretty consistant but something new today is I've lost the color in my face and my legs turned into jello. To medicate myself I've been drinking lots of water, taking ibuprofen, and last night I took 2, count them 2, tylenol pm's. After the tylenol I lasted about 3 minutes then I was asleep for 12 hours.

All in all this is fabulous. I'm at home bored out of my mind while my work piles up on my desk. I'm never behind on my work, until now. I'd like to thank, in an unblaming way, all of my co-workers who came to work with fevers, body aches, and awful colds. I couldn't be less bitter.

To end on a positive note, my mom and dad have been very helpful. They've delivered my exact requests of a thermometer, a banana, a cream soda, and chicken nuggets with sweet and sour sauce. They've even done it in more than one trip. Today my dad has put himself on retainer to deliver whatever else I think of.

I guess being home sick could be worse.
