verdict? overall, a pretty good thanksgiving. i missed gram and was so sad i was sick, but my body was definitely telling me i needed to rest.
we haven’t decorated for christmas…and i don’t really feel up to it this year.
christmas shopping is pretty much finished. just need to get one more gift for mom (which i need baby bro’s cooperation to get).
the main upside? being sick meant i wasn’t very hungry, so despite not working out for almost 2 weeks, i haven’t put on any weight (this also means i’ve lost a lot of muscle mass).
on another note, i found out a friend i grew up with lost his mom on thanksgiving. i don’t know what happened, but she was a really neat lady. she was at all of our soccer matches and my mom and i would always run into her at the Arts Festival and other OKC events. she was one of those ladies that always had nice things to say and would remember what you were up to the last time she saw you - even if that was years ago. karen, you will be greatly missed.
"I tell my daughters they need a college education so that they can have a career, and not a job. Because I’ve got two jobs, and they still don’t add up to a career."
THIS. My response every time my dad said education isn’t that important. I’m half his age, well-educated, and have a great basis for my career.Source: humansofnewyork
