i think winter time makes me lazy. all i want to do is huddle under blankets and do nothing.
my job has been doing well and i’m really excited to be employed again. i got my first paycheck last week and spent most of it, but it was spent on needed items, and vincent’s giftmas present. i got him a nabi jr. tablet! they were on sale during the walmart pre-black friday sale on the website so i decided to just go ahead and get it. vincent has a major fascination with my nook, and ben’s phone, and my ipod, and basically anything with a touch screen, so we both agreed that this would be a perfect toy for him. its pretty much vincent proof and we can use it to distract him at restaurants and while we wait for his doctor appointments. i can’t wait to get it and try it out!
i also got a little bit of frivolous money from my check, gave myself a little allowance and bought some world of warcraft time with it. also a cute tshirt from teefury that features cuthulu as the kool-aid man. its so weird to have spending money! i sat around wondering what the hell to buy for hours! i know i should have saved it for the black friday sale but i couldn’t think of anything i wanted that would be on sale during that and i don’t really want to go to the store that day.
thanksgiving is very soon and i have no idea what we are doing for it. ben’s side of the family is usually our host because i don’t really have anyone to visit during the holidays (my brother isn’t doing thanksgiving, and that’s all i have down here). his dad doesn’t know what he’s going to do that day and his mom hasn’t returned his call so i’m sitting here two days from thanksgiving wondering if i should get a turkey and try to cook it myself. hopefully someone else will host so i don’t have to try and make something like that! i am not ready for turkey.
saturday was my best friend’s kids’ birthday party. she somehow managed to time her kids to both be born in november, but a few years apart. so they have a double birthday party. this year it was at a bowling alley and that was quite an adventure for vincent. he enjoyed running around looking at the lights on the jukebox, the crane machine, and other arcade stuff around the area where the party was. he enjoyed some cake and a few cheese puffs. i don’t usually feed him junk food but it was a special occasion so he got to eat a little.
and i took a few pictures:
he went crazy with those balloons… glad they had a weight on them!
