7 Quick Takes # 62

I spent the day running errands with Elizabeth and we went to lunch. We haven't done that in a really long time so I thought it would be a nice surprise for her. She enjoyed herself. We went to see my parents and to pick up prescriptions and to the grocery store which wasn't really that crowded. I guess that's because everyone else was at a department store.

Thanksgiving dinner yesterday turned out really well. I didn't make a dessert so we bought one for today because I knew we were going to be eating really late yesterday and I didn't see the sense in it. It was a good call because there was a ton of food without dessert.

I've been playing an extraordinary amount of Bingo Blitz lately. It's my guilty pleasure, along with Candy Crush. It's something to do when there is nothing else to do.

I've read so much this month that I'm running out of books to read. The library is closed today or we would have gone there and borrowed some books. I finally (!) downloaded the app that will allow me to check out ebooks from the library. I know. I know. I'm only about 4 years behind. I didn't realize you could borrow ebooks until I accidentally requested a book in that format and got the email telling me how to access it. I learned something new today.

It's going to be a long weekend I do believe. Our best chance to be really busy is on Saturday probably. 

I'm making plans for next year already even though everyone thinks I am a bit crazy because there is still a month of this year left. I can't really plan anything for the rest of this year because everything takes time to put into action and because I know that the upcoming Christmas holiday is going to leave me with little energy to do much of anything beyond go to work, eat, shower, and sleep.

Today is my sister's birthday and I didn't get a chance to talk to her. I think she's mad at me for not picking up Codi for the Thanksgiving holiday. I told her to bring her over if she wanted her to come over but she didn't and I didn't hear a word from her after that.
