Tuesday was casual at work and by the time I got home from class and Ed got home from work, it was dark and I was grumpy. So here's our yellow apartment:
Wednesday was a busy traveling day, so I needed something that doesn't easily wrinkle: behold, plaid and cords:
Thanksgiving was great! Ed and I were at my parent's house and my mom's parents and my mom's sister's family came (my brother and sister-in-law had to work on Friday and couldn't fly in from Maryland). There was SO. MUCH. FOOD. And wine. And card games. And dogs! My mom's sister brought her 2 dachshunds, we had Gus of course, and my parents have a little dog named Lucy who hates me and never moves from in front of the fireplace.
|I think I'm really winning her over.|
Like I said, we had a family emergency on Friday; my parents had to go out of town suddenly and Ed and I stayed to take care of Lucy and wrap up some odds and ends. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture but suffice to say it was a very uncreative combination of an undershirt, black cardigan, skinny jeans and brown boots (within the confines of the 30, yes!). Y'all really aren't missing much.
In light of this emergency, I wanted to say a little "I'm thankful for" whatever. I'm so thankful we have our health and health insurance; jobs, which was not the case just a few short months ago; that I have family all over the state that can jump in and take care of each other when we need to; that my parents are still married, financially secure, and healthy; and finally for my new little family, Ed who supports all my crazy ideas and life plans and who moved all the way to Austin without a job or knowing anyone to be with me, and Gus, who challenges us to be more communicative, selfless, and patient.
