fimbrethiel: (Glorfindel portrait)
Darn, I missed last week's Whining Wednesday.  >.<

*points to icon* This is my new 21st century Glorfindel. He's pretty, no?

Booey turned 17 yesterday. I can't believe it. We got him speakers for his car and an ultra-cool New England Patriots tee-shirt, and I made him his request for dinner:  steak, pan-fried potatoes, and asparagus, with a spice cake with cream cheese frosting for dessert. Sunday's dinner with my parents was penne with a sausage and meatball casserole, and a French silk pie. The child is spoiled, no? *grin*  In the spring he's going to be looking at colleges. Did I mention I can't believe that my baby is 17????

Dad had his biopsy yesterday. Mom said he did fine, with no complications except some fairly heavy bleeding, which I guess is normal. They won't have official news until December 5. That seems like a long time to me. I'm trying to keep calm, but it's not easy after what happened to my father-in-law.

Speaking of father-in-law, for Thanksgiving we're traveling down to Massachusetts to stay with The Steve's mother. This will be her first major holiday since his dad died. Thanksgiving has always been her favorite, rated even above Christmas. She LOVES Thanksgiving and does it up big. She's going to try and do it by herself this year. I wish we could go on Wednesday so I could help out, but I have to work so we won't be driving down until early Thursday morning. She really struggled for the first months and cried all the time, but she's doing well now. We always had a bit of a strained relationship, as she was always a bit distant (her knickname among The Steve's friends used to be Stoneface), but she's quite friendly these days and we actually get along very well now. I even call her occasionally just to chat. Yes, it shocks me too!

I am so freaking sick of waking up at 3am. No real reason for it, I just wake up and semi-doze until 6, when I have to get up for work. The Steve says I should just get up and hit the treadmill then instead of taking a break during the work day, but HAHAHAHA no.

I got a new haircut today, and dahlings, I must admit it looks fabulous. :)

Hope everyone else is doing well.

The post for today is...

bacon.

It's what's for dinner. In an omelette with cheese. Mmm good.

No, seriously. I think I can manage a bit more than that before dinner's ready.

Let's see. This week I joined a new RPG. It's just getting off the ground now, but it looks like fun. It's very different than anything I've done before. I haven't written a word in at least three years, so it's a bit of a shock at how much I've forgotten.

We had the threat of a snowstorm over the weekend. On Friday we mowed the lawn for the last time and raked the leaves. On Sunday the forecast called for 8" of snow. We got a half-inch. Woo.

Booey spent some of his savings to replace the speakers in 'his' car over the weekend. (My old car but is primarily the one he drives.) He thinks he's all that now. *eye roll* He's counting the days until he turns 17, and the weeks until he's past the 9-month probation period for new drivers and can begin to carry passengers. I, on the other hand, am not so excited at the prospect of a carload of 17 year old boys bombing around. He's a great kid, but it's still terrifying.

Mmm. Bacon's ready. Time to make the omelette.

Can I get any more random? *lol*
