-- Thanksgiving --

Do you ever feel like going home takes everything out of you?  Well, I spent my weekend at home with my family, but with Mike and he spent it without me and the dogs. 


I think that is a first... for that arrangement.  Usually it's me gone with him home with the dogs or him gone with me home with the dogs, but never has it been me away with the dogs and him at home...

Yes, it was weird. 

AND to top it all off, I forgot my wedding ring when we left so I went all weekend NAKED without it.  Oh well.  You win some, You lose some, right?! 

I hope it was a Happy Thanksgiving for all! 

Be sure to check out the latest giveaway over at Little Miss Martha today... :)  Here it is.

Happy Thanksgiving

Well, last night Mr. K and I spent the night alone at our childhood homes!  It was the first time we've done that since the wedding. 

I'm cooking at my mom's and his mom is cooking at their house.  This morning we have been cooking and cleaning.  Thanksgiving at my house went from 6 people to 11.  Nice.  So now I have to double my stuffing recipe and I've already made one batch.  It's the best stuffing!  I love it! 

So we are off to walmart...what a surprise! 

Happy Thanksgiving... at the minute I'm thankful  for stores being open, however I know the workers aren't that way.... I feel bad.  But I am thankful for my lovely husband, my family, that my sister is home for the holiday, that my dad can stay home with us, my friends, my puppies, and this wonderful food we are about to eat!

Picture Time

While grabbing the camera for another reason this happened! 
Not sure why I'm suprised...

 Just Kidding Around!  Although, Mr. Hockey does look a little scary there! 

Well, I thought I'd save the best for last....even though it's not really great at all! 

Did you think I meant professional pictures... no no no.

No More Craigslist

Last Thursday I found some bookshelves on Craigslist.  I didn't know how tall they were, but they were tall.  And to date, we've always been able to fit everything I've found/bought/wanted/needed into our little Ford Escape. 

Well, on Saturday morning, I asked Mike to go with me to pick up these bookshelves I found on Craigslist.  We went and he complained the whole time and then at the beginning of the drive over, he asked how big they were.  I said, I don't know about 6ft maybe?!  They are the big ones. 

Mike - They won't fit. 
Abby - Well then lets call her and tell her we don't want them and we'll turn around and go home.
Mike - No.  We'll get them. 

So we did.  They didn't fit. 

Mike shoved them into the back seat along with me and we drove all the way home with the trunk/hatch wide open - ALL THE WAY UP - me on my knees in the back holding onto these bookcases for dear life and also so I wouldn't fly out either. 

Mike was waving and honking at everyone that drove by.  He loves to embarrass me.  I didn't look out the back when someone was behind us.  I was mortified and here he is waving and honking.  He may as well have put up a sign in the window that said I totally just won an argument with my wife and I'm trying to humiliate her so she won't ever make me do this again. that's why there's no more Craigslist.  Mikes e-freaking-lated.  Me, not so much.

Unless of course I rent a truck or we get a bigger car.  This is a total bummer too b/c they were a great deal.  $100 bookcases for $15 each.  I love deals.

Wake Up

Is this a sign of what's to come? 

The other night I was awoken by my baby boys...that is to say my dogs, Lex and Louie. 
I'd like to put a little bit of emphasis on the "I" in that sentence as I was the only one that woke up. 

Lex comes up to my side of the bed and starts barking.  It's 3am.  Lex will also start licking you as well, to get you to wake up.  I get up at 4:45 Lex, just let me sleep.  Don't you think their bladders could wait an hour?!?  No...apparently they needed to go out RIGHT THEN.  Or, they'd been barking for a while and finally got me to wake up.   

Mike didn't even budge.  Or if he did, he plays a good sleeper. 

Does this mean that when we start a family that he won't budge for the babies?  Or is there something different about an annoying dog bark than a baby cry?  Any tips for how to get him to get up in the middle of the night instead of me?!?  I see this not going well...

New Month, New Job

Well, Mike started his new job on Monday.  I think he loves it.  He goes into work around 10.  That's the perfect job for him. 

I'm hoping he starts to go in earlier, but we will see.  Sleeping in is something he's good at.  ;) 

I wish I could sleep in.  I get up at the butt crack of dawn to go to work.  But I get Fridays off. 

I'm very proud of Mike though.  He was at his last job for almost 6 years.  He worked really hard for that company.  I know he'll work really hard at his new job too.  He's just a hard worker. 

Now, if we could both just work really hard at the gym, we'd be set!  ;)
