Okay.............. STRICT primal for 2 weeks. I can do this. The remaining cheesecake will go into the freezer, and I've asked hubby not to bring home any more rum. We'll see how that goes.
I'm very disappointed in my step daughters! They didn't even try to come see their dad the entire weekend! I know SD#2 was in town and could have stopped by Thursday after the gathering with her mom's side. She put a note on fb that said she was very happy to not have to work on Thanksgiving so she could see her family. HUM......... I'm so thankful her dad doesn't do fb cuz that would have REALLY hurt him. And SD#1 lives only 2 miles away from us - but, no visit from her either. Granted they both had to work Friday evening when we had our gathering, but they could have come by to him any other time. Now I'm wondering what will happen for Christmas. Last year they came for breakfast Christmas morning, but only stayed about an hour. They both came to the family gathering at MIL's house, but #2 had to work and left early. Neither one of the girls appreciate everything their dad has done for them. I guess most kids don't.......... so sad how we all take our parents for granted.
We've also make the decision to NOT hold our christmas gathering at MIL's house this year. Her house can't hold 30+ people. And with the neice bringing her sister and 4 kids it will further crowd things.
Oh there's a topic. Neices sister was shopping with a friend and showed up 2 hours late. The dishes had all been cleaned up and most of the food was ready to be taken home with who brought it. Sister came in, never ONCE acknowleged hubby and I OR anyone else in the family for that matter. She ate dinner, then dessert - then fell asleep on the floor where her son was coloring. She left and never said a single word to us. So I still haven't even been introduced to her. I could have greeted her when she came in - but I was waiting to see if she would be at least gracious enough to thank us for having her and her 4 kids over (uninvited). I did make a point to say goodbye as she was leaving.......... she gave me a quick glance and said "bye". Very strange!!!
I can't begin to express how grateful I am that that night is OVER! and I will never have to have that mob in my house again! I had to tell the 3 little ones to stop running in the house - and to stay downstairs within the first 30 seconds of them coming into the house! Stop running - don't touch that - don't push - go around the other way - No you can't have that without asking!!! I wanted to stuff them into the closet and lock the door! And the parents don't do anything about it. GRRRRR. Every one BUT the parents were disciplining those kids. They didn't even bring anything for them to play with - and we don't have stuff for little people to do in our house.
Okay............. its done - its over - and I need to let it go.
It's nearly 11 am and I haven't eaten yet. I better get something to eat and then get to work. After work today I will get the rest of the leaves cleaned up. The tree's are mostly bare now. I never finished the back yard before the rains came - so I really need to get those leaves off the grass before they start to damage the lawn. Its monday so hubby will be late tonight.
off I go.............. have a good day!
