I survived Thanksgiving without the little Momma. Yup, Cathy and I had a enjoyable time. It was very nice. I am very glad she is here. She went shopping last night and this morning while I slept. I don't like shopping and I can't stand in lines, so no real shopping for me. Unless I have my scooter or they have one, forget about it, can't really do it.
I made Cornish hens for dinner last night. We demolished those right up. We each had one. Boy were they good. They were still a bit frozen so I had to cook them a bit longer and then I had to microwave them at the very end. Next time, I will do the water way of thawing those type birds. Lately, the last few times I made them we had this issue. I don't get it. You have to thaw them in the fridge, which I did, I pulled them out on Monday and they were still frozen by Thursday. Whatever, they are gone now. I also made a cake for dessert. We have plenty left over for today and tomorrow. We also had the usual, stuffing, veggies, and mashed potatoes. I did buy scalloped potatoes, but changed my mind on that.
I can't wait to find out what all Cathy got shopping. I am sure she will let me know when she wakes up. I am not waking her as she was awake all day yesterday and all night last night. I got up at 5:30 to visit mother nature and she wasn't back yet, so you know she must be exhausted. She has a long drive home tomorrow too, so she needs her sleep.
I am missing Mom a lot today, I did yesterday too. It seems rather unfair that I should be here having a nice Thanksgiving and she isn't here to enjoy it with us. So unfair. I hope this Holiday season isn't too bad for me. I feel kind of weepy this afternoon. I just miss her so much. My companion is gone as well as my mother. I don't know how my friends who have lost their moms do it, but I will learn I suppose.
We did see Harry Potter yesterday. It was good. I wasn't as thrilled about it as I was before Mom died, but that is to be expected, I think. It was an enjoyable movie. We both liked it. What we both didn't like is we have to wait until summer to see the rest. Unfair! Although, I agree, it had to be split or you would miss so much. I really do think they should have split books 4, 5, and 6 also as they were big too and you missed a lot in the movies.
Pain hasn't been too bad with the weather getting colder. I am hopeful it will stay this way. Today, though, I have a bad headache. I took a pain pill so I hope it works soon because it is really bad.
I hope your day is good.
