Ocean City

Friday we had a good time and we went to see the Christmas light display that Ocean City sets up. We also went to the best Bar/restaurant in Ocean City. We had some great wings and a few (too many) Orange Crushes. Today we cleaned the condo and packed up the car and headed to Rehoboth Beach. It is another resort town on the east coast. We did tons of shopping at the outlets. I am over 50% done my Christmas shopping. We also walked on the Boardwalk and stopped in Candy Kitchen to get my sister her favorite candy watermelon. The pictures were taken at the water fountain on the Boardwalk.

Happy Thanksgiving! I wish mine was happy. It was horrible! We didn’t go to get wings for dinner cause the place was closed. We did go to a very nice place to eat. It was pretty and the food was pretty good. I was just in a horrible mood. I looked around at all the tables and thought how horrible….all of these people don;t have any family to share the holiday with. Then it dawned on me…DUH! I am one of these people. I just wanted to be home in bed. I was so sad. I thought about all of the great thanksgivings my Mom gave to me. Next year I will spend it with lots of loved ones and I will cook. I can’t go through another horrible dinner like the one I had. I was pretty depressed all week, but that was the topper! It was just awful. The place we ate had a great view. Here are some pics:

Well this will be my last post until I return from Ocean City on Saturday! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. We will be sitting in this fun bar eating wings for Thanksgiving. My sister and my Dad and I will have a good time! I am glad we are getting away! I am cooking a turkey and some stuffing and some Mac and Cheese to take with us. My mom would be proud of me. Every year since my Grandmother died my Mom takes her a bowl of “Raw Stuffing” which is Syuffing not cooked. The bread and seasonings and onions and celery. It is so good this way and it was always a family tradition to eat some before it was cooked. This afternoon I made stuffing for the first time! (not including good old stove top) I have a small bowl to take to my Grandmother’s grave and one for my Mom! I hope it turned out like hers. I also made a tray of Mac and Cheese and a tray of Stuffing for Jodi. She is cooking her first Thanksgiving Dinner this year and these are two things that were staples of our Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted her to have a piece of my Mom with her too so I am taking them over to her house now. She has been at Thanksgiving dinner with my family for the past 12 years! I hope you guys all have a great one!

My Dad got operated on today for cataracts. He did so well! We got to the Hospital by 7:00 am and I was home cooking us all breakfast by 10:30! Isn’t he cute?

This picture was taken in recovery where he was eating a cracker! My sister and I were teasing him about being scared of needles. He was, but did really well!

Knitting

I am all done two scarfs! I am so excited. I really am liking knitting. Rachel and i had cass today and they taught us how to bind off. SOO Easy! This is me in my scarf (the one I am keeping for myself):

I really am enjoying this new hobby! Here is a pic of me knitting my third scarf which will be a gift for one of my aunts for Christmas:

Happy Birthday Lauren! Today is my friend Jodi’s little girl’s 11th Birthday! I remember the day she was born and the Day I helped bring her home from the hospital. We are very close. I have spent many many hours babysitting her and her sister and brother. I am one of the few people Jodi trusts to watch her kids. It’s funny cause she trusted me from the start and I was only 14. I would keep Lauren over night and all day long in summer. I went to her birthday Party tonight. It was a Buffy theme! All the kids had a great time. They played some fun games. Even though my sister, Nikki and my Dad didn’t like my glasses, most people did. Lauren liked them so much she got her mom to go and get her a pair just like them. She was due for new glasses anyways.

Well I am sitting here watching the last of the leaves fall outside my window. I am also trying to finish packing. Greg and I are going to Ocean City for the day. I can’t wait. I gotta blow dry my hair so we can get outta here! We are coming back tomorrow evening to go to my friends little girl’s Birthday party. She will be 11 years old. It is so weird cause I remember her being born. I was so excited. I was at the hospital the day we brought her home and it seems like it was yesterday. She came home from the Hospital on a Tuesday and was at my Mom’s for thanksgiving that Thursday. This will be her first Thanksgiving any where besides my Mom’s house. The other day she told me how it will probally suck! I agreed with her 100%. Monday my Dad is getting operated on and the Tuesday my Sister, Dad and I are going down to Ocean City to avoid the holiday. Thanksgiving was my Mom’s favorite Holiday next to Christmas and it is just going to be too hard to manage. We were going to take a trip to Las Vegas, but since my Dad’s operation is on his eyes he can’t fly for 2 weeks. Well I better get a move on….Have a good weekend.
