Can you believe it’s December already? I mean some days I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s 2018 and I’m so far behind on so many things but hey, let’s look at the bright side, it’s almost 2019 and I can just reset, right?
Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We did. My in laws came up from Englewood and MacGyver and I cooked.
After dinner MacGyver and I decided to do what we said we weren’t going to do. For the past few years on Thanksgiving we’ve headed over to the Walmart to brave the crowds and purchase T.V.s at a ridiculously low price. We really weren’t going to go this year but then lightning hit our house in Nokomis and our 60″ TV got fried so off to Walmart we went and this year, we got a 65″.
They really wanted to come but we did not bring the dogs. My in laws were kind enough to fur baby sit for us so that we could go to Tennessee for a week.
We left on Friday and arrived in Tennessee that afternoon.
I love doing projects with my sister. I wish we could do it more often. It was also nice to be able to make something nice for my mom who just moved back to Knoxville and is now closer to my sister and brother.
We had a few gatherings at my mom’s house too but I must have been in the moment because I totally forgot to take pictures. MacGyver, my Mom and I also went out to dinner with some of my aunt’s, uncles and cousins that I hadn’t seen in forever and we had an awesome time and I was in the moment then too because again, I forgot to take any pictures.
I did take a few pictures of my sisters farm.
I didn’t take a lot of photos while we were there but no trip to Tennessee is complete without heading up to the mountains and snapping a few. We didn’t make it all the way to Gatlinburg but we hit Pigeon Forge for dinner one night and I got some pics of the lights.
While we were in Tennessee I managed to run almost every day, even on the cold days.
On Thursday morning my mom took MacGyver and I back to the airport and we headed home.
Fortunately we were just at the correct weight for our luggage and didn’t have to pay any extra and I still don’t know how we managed that.
We got back home before 9AM on Thursday and I’ve been playing catch up ever since. Yesterday I finally started putting up my Christmas decorations and I’ll actually take some pictures this week and share them.
MacGyver an I have a ton of stuff going on this week so it’s going to be a bit hectic but hopefully I’ll be back to writing a little more often….or I’ll just have to make it one of my New Years resolution’s.
How was your Thanksgiving?
When’s the last time you took a vacation and where did you go?
