November Happenings

Well, I am feeling much much better. Still not great but better than I was. I'm very happy about feeling better EXCEPT now I don't have an excuse to not clean the house and do dishes that have been sitting in the sink since Thanksgiving! Yikes! I know....we are terrible BUT I haven't have the energy and neither has Josh. He's been gone studying for all these finals!

On to the good stuff! The week after the Cavs game, I spent working 10-11 hours days to catch up and so I could take time off for when my sisters/cousins came. Josh was a super hubby and surprised me everyday with something. One day he cleaned the ENTIRE house, dusting and all! I almost started crying when I came home and saw my clean house! Another day he surprised me with a beautiful fall table runner and fabulous flowers! Again I was completely stunned and sooo thankful for a WONDERFUL hubby!

After working so hard, my sisters, cousins and aunt started to fly/drive in. We had a GREAT weekend! I just wish everyone could have stayed just a little longer (especially Christine who had to leave the next morning)! Why did they all come? For "New Moon," of course! We went to the midnight showing. It was really cool because we got to watch "Twilight" in the movie theater beforehand. So we got great seats together and got to watch both movies!

Here is everyone before the movie (minus Shawnee who hadn't gotten in yet):
It was a fabulous weekend filled with Twilight, girls, shopping and FUN! I can't wait to do it again in June for the next movie!

Josh and I also had a great Thanksgiving. We were able to get together with a few friends and just have a great time. I made a turkey, stuffing, yams (which I have NEVER eaten but I was told they turned out great), and my mom's fruit salad. It's just not Thanksgiving for me without my mom's fruit salad! I LOVE it! And sorry no pictures. I didn't take ANY pictures in November!

The day after Thanksgiving, I did take my camera out a took a picture of out first snow this season! The good thing about this snow is that it was an inch or less and didn't even last the whole day! We have yet to have any more snow...but I am NOT complaining one bit.
That's really about it! We had such a BUSY November but it was soo fun! We had a great time with all of our friends and family and can't wait for Christmas!

Catch Up

Wow! Only one post in October and NONE in November! I am waaay far behind but I don't plan on catching up in just one post. I have been way sick lately. It all started about a week ago with just a sore throat and has gotten worse each day. First it was just a nasty cough, then Sunday a really runny nose joined the cough. Yesterday when the extreme dizziness joined the cough and runny nose, I left work and went to an Urgent Care place. When the doctor first walked in he told me he didn't think I was sick! Yes! He actually told me that! I'm not sure why, maybe because I wasn't coughing up a lung when he first walked in. He said that he would examine me though because I was complaining I was sick! So I'm not sick, yet I leave with THREE different prescriptions! Today I did go to work, but only for about an hour and a half. After that I got really dizzy and just couldn't see and thought I was getting a migraine. Why did I go to work? Well it has something to do with $$$ and Christmas coming up. I already didn't have enough leave to cover my trip home! Oh well though! There was no way that I could have stayed today and we will see what happens tomorrow. Poor Josh...He has been sleeping on the couch (not wanting to get sick and wanting to be able to get some sleep) and he is in the middle of finals, which means...he's been having to survive dinner and everything on his own. He's been really good about it though. I'm sure he doesn't mind eating out for dinner :)

Ok, enough of me dragging on and on about my sickness. November was a VERY busy month to say the very least. The first weekend, I went to our ward relief society activity. We painted and decorated these blocks! It's Christmas on one side and Halloween on the other! I love how they turned out!

After the hours that these blocks took (we couldn't believe how long it actually took!), a few of my friends and myself did a little shopping. We had a BLAST and it was so nice to get out and just have girl time!

The next Saturday, we were able to go to the temple in Columbus and the got to go watch the Cavs play the Jazz! I have wanted to go to a game since we got here and I'm so glad that we got to go! We had such a fun time! And those guys are HUGE! WE had pretty good seats from a friends' boss! Thanks for taking us with you :) We had a lot of fun.


There were a lot more happenings in November (all my sisters and cousins and aunt came here for "New Moon" and then there was Thanksgiving), but those are going to have to wait til next time. My head feels like it's going to explode! Until next time!
