Good Things.

  • Doritos
  • Autumn leaves
  • Cookies

Not So Good Things.

  • Bugs
  • My left calf muscle, 20 seconds into my DDR exercise routine.

Ouch. Suffice it to say, there will be no dancing for a while. Which entitles me to work on my rock and roll legend status. Did I not mention that, according to Guitar Hero III, I am a rock and roll legend (on medium)? I’m working my way through the next level (hard). And having a blast. Yes, that’s me. Sueeeeus Maximus. Mild mannered desk jockey by day, rock and roll legend by night.

We have had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend, as evidenced by the lack of blogging. Which is part of the flip side to being fully engaged with family, food, and festivities for several days straight. That, along with an inbox overflowing with spammail, and my google-reader post-count incrementing away, leaving all my favorite blogs sadly neglected. The house also looks like it’s been hit by a cyclone, and now that everyone is gone and I’m left with a finicky husband and child, I may well be eating turkey related leftovers for quite some time. And a weekend with school aged children circulating the germs of the season may be taking it’s toll, as evidenced by the swollen eyes and runny nose my little one greeted me with this morning. Poor little guy. I just hope that none of the babies catch the bug.

Yes, babies! The most squeezable snuggly googly gurgly giggly wonderful babies. I had the pleasure of hosting my sister’s family, along with her aforementioned deliciously squeezable 4-month old son, for nearly five days! We all gathered for Thanksgiving proper at my SIL’s place, home of the other snuggly baby, my 6 month old niece, then I brought two of the children back to my place to spend a long weekend with their cousins. I think it may well be impossible to have four children and a tidy home. One or the other, but not both. What a delight, to have a house full of people! Charades, Pictionary, Sudoku, Play-doh, Legos, squirt guns, bubbles, a jigsaw puzzle, movies, food, popcorn, cappuccino (lots of cappuccino), Wii Sports, Wii Play, Dance Dance Revolution, and Guitar Hero filled our days. The grown ups played. The children played. We all had a great time!
