Well, my cousins and aunt and uncle left yesterday morning. After which I lay on my bed reading and trying not to fall asleep and then we all went to Costco. I about fell asleep in the car on the way home though, so when we got home I helped carry stuff in and then headed to bed. Pulled the blanket out from under the very peeved cat and curled up and slept for almost four hours. I didn't really feel better when I woke up because I woke up with a horrific sinus headache and had to take some Tylenol and sinus medicine and take a shower, all of which helped some. I finally felt better after sitting on the couch and eating some roast beef sandwiches...I hadn't really had any lunch so I probably needed to eat.
Here are a few pictures from when my cousins were here, I didn't take as many pictures as I sometimes do. For one thing I don't have any extra batteries for my camera so I didn't want to run down the ones that were in there. They're the fancy Energizer e2 lithium AA's, but they do run down fairly fast if I have my camera on a lot!
They were racing going down the slide...which was so short that it was usually a tie:
They look a bit squished:
What's wrong with your hands, Rebecca? :p :
Playing tic-tac-toe...from left to right: Alex, Rebecca, Andrea, and John:
It was kind of different this time, because only Rebecca stayed here with me, Andrea wanted to stay in the hotel with everyone else...something about not wanting to have to sleep under the table like last time they were here. :p So I'm not sure if we got more sleep or less this way...there weren't any late-night Dutch Blitz games, but we did play chess one night and talked the next night, and then Friday night we just read until we decided we'd probably better go to bed.
So we had a pretty fun Thanksgiving weekend! I apparently missed a big political discussion, and something else controversial like that too, I think... I didn't miss my uncle offering to give my dad a shotgun with one of his reasons being that Dad should have a shotgun to be cleaning when any young man came to see me. To which I said that he'd probably have plenty of time to get one with the ways things are right now, and my uncle and my mom said in unison "You never know when someone might show up!" at which point I looked slightly freaked out and muttered something about, "Hopefully sooner rather than later!!"...like, before I start doing that too... ;)
So anyway, we had a good weekend, and after I had my nap and supper and felt better last night, I was weirdly happy...I guess because I felt so much better, and my room is fairly clean, I have a fairly light week of work coming up, a birthday party to go to on Saturday, and not much in the way of big chores to do this week. I should mop the floor though, because between the root beer and people going in and out, the kitchen floor isn't exactly clean. :)
Tomorrow's December already! I wish the months wouldn't keep sneaking up on me like this...I don't even remember this summer...it's weird. I remember Easter and I remember my cousins coming in June, but I guess I was so busy with getting work stuff figured out and everything that the rest just faded away. I should go read my blog...see, this is why I blog, so I can remember what I did! :p Well, not really, I blog because...well, because people will read it I guess. I don't know! Because I enjoy blogging, and reading other people's blogs. :)
