The Day Before Thanksgiving

November 21, 2012

Not in the most festive, cheery mood today.
I blame my coworkers & bosses.
This is the second year they ALL take vacation at the same time.
Meaning: I am at work all by myself!
I know what you're thinking!!
What's wrong with that?
Well that means I have to do a little bit of there jobs while there out.
A little bit of this adds up to alot of that.
Sigh.
I should stop complaining but as of lately that's all I've been doing.
I sprained my back about a month ago.
It aches.
Feels like somebody is holding my left side hostage with a fork.
Literally puncturing me here and there.
I finally gave in to the pain and went to the doctor last week.
He told me there's alot of inflammation in there.
Tons of it.
He prescribed pain killers, muscle relaxers, and anti-inflammatory pills.
He also told me to rest for about three days straight? Who am I kidding?
I can't rest for three days in a row. I have a soccer game almost every other day.
Or at least it feels that way.
My back does feel alot better but once in a while that pitch fork finds its way back to my lower side.
The only thing I'm looking forward to today is my extended weekend!
I don't have to be back at work till Monday.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving for us in America. Just in case y'all didn't know.
I will be approximately five pounds heavier tomorrow.
Loose clothing will be greatly appreciated until I conclude regular programming.
Also. . . today is the day!!! YES THE DAY!
I will finally know if I am having a nephew or a niece.
I really hope it's a girl but a healthy boy will also do.
If it's a girl, oh my, that's a wrap for me.
No more children will be leaving this womb. I'm tying my tubes and everything. A little exaggerated I know but really, really that's how I feel at the time.
Two more hours here and I'll be on my way.
On my way to huge sides of mashed potatoes, green bean casseroles  corn on the cob, cornbread & stuffing, gravy and tons of cranberry sauce, football, and my cozy PJ's.
I still can't help it. I feel awful for all the turkeys that have been butchered by the thousands just for the satisfaction of Thanksgiving. Sorry two legged, friends. I can't stop the movement. Just know I won't be eating you for the 3rd time this year.
No turkey will ever read that but some turkey lover will.
Burn! Not literally.
What am I saying?
I'm just blabbering away. It's a grand time killer.
Happy Thanksgiving guys & gals.
Don't disregard the true meaning of tomorrow.
Be thankful for everything & everyone in your present lives.
& also thank those who walked out. Who needs them anyways?
Not I!!!!!
My blessings & ultimate thanks go out to those who still are a part of me & my everyday chaos.
I love y'all!
Peace.
