Thanksgiving went fabulously! Mom and I bought the whole dinner from Von's rather than cooking, and not only did it come with tons of food (10-12lb turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie), it was really delicious as well! We just picked up some whipped topping for the pumpkin pie and a veggie tray (so we'd be a little healhty), and grandma made a green bean casserole, because she couldn't stand not cooking anything!
We picked up the food around 10 a.m., and took it up to my grandparent's house where we were having dinner. We just needed to reheat everything, and since we weren't eating until 1 p.m., I was able to relax and watch the Packers win another game, this time on a large flatscreen TV with my grandfather. It was fun to having someone to discuss the game with! My cousins weren't able to make it this year, so it was just me and mom, my grandparents and my aunt and uncle. We missed the kids, but had a nice, relaxed, easygoing Thanksgiving anyway.
All that said, I'm kinda glad it's over, and now I have three more days to relax and continue to heal my better, but still broken eyeballs. I get tired really easily now, and I'm not sure if it's just that the healing is so intense my body just has to sleep a lot, or if the medication I'm taking for my eyes is making my so tired, but it's been frustrating and annoying. I'm used to having at least some energy, and suddenly I have little to none. Grr. But, my eyes are improving and that's the important thing!
And, now to celebrate our successful Thanksgiving dinner and family get-together, my mom and I are each enjoying a nice chilled glass of Viongier from Sterling Vineyards. It's one of my favourite wines from that vineyard, and it's delicious!
