"Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes."  

We sat around the house until 2. I was on the computer and working on an economics project. We had to pick up Lynn's mom on the way over to Lynn's.
Thanksgiving was okay til my dad and Lynn sort of got in this fight/discussion about DaVinci Code. I started it by just telling my dad that there was a Leondardo DaVinci documentary premiering on History Channel soon, oops.
Anyway the holidays are hell for everyone involved, whether it is getting the house ready on time, preparing the food or political and economic fights. Holidays are a good time to bring up the past too, all those times that you screwed up and your family needing to stick it to you. Luckily most of my relatives are dead and my parents aren't together so the holidays are spent with a mish mash of people. I miss my grandparents at the holidays though. During the holidays old distant reliatives always appear out of nowhere and you end up having to tell how old you are, etc. like twenty times.
I did have this great moment where I was alone in Lynn's dining room sitting by the bay window and I was looking out it with all the snow on the ground and all the sudden like a hundred crows came and it was one of the most beautiful sights with the sun beaming in the background, very peaceful.

Oh, aren't the holidays great. (Sarcasm)

O, ashley, i love you. I agree, too. Too much family sometimes, they just won't let you be, especially when parents argue over holidays...

zumba music someone?
I have been pondering if anybody here heard of the [url=http://zumba-reviews.com]zumba fitness[/url] . It seems that it is supposed to be a better replacement for regular workout since it is fun and easy. I'd personally be happy if someone who used it could actually please reply and share a feedback as i am really considering trying it out and want to get a general idea from people that used it before I actually do. Many thanks!
