Getting Ready Nov 22, 2010

I am getting ready a little bit for my son to come in from NC.  He and the other two will be here for Thanksgiving.  I am not cooking however..haven't cooked in this the third year.  I do for Christmas but I just don't want to do the same thing twice so quickly together.  My sons don't like ham!  My goodness!  So it's turkey or nothing.  If I could just get a ham, I would go through the rest.  I have a reservation for all of us, all 5, and at one of the better restaurants in town.  I will have a couple of  desserts here however although they will get one there at the restaurant.

I'm changing pharmacies.  Pain in the neck because the couple of meds I do take are spread out all over the calender for renewal.  I am hacked at the one I have been going to since we came here to this town to live a squillion years ago.  The man had the temerity to argue with me when all I was trying to do was pick up my automated refill item. He asked when it was done..said I didn't know as I was responding to a automated call..he went all the way down hill from that.  He repeated his rudeness today..stick a fork in me, I'm done.

Meanwhile, I hope all of you are well and prepared for your Thanksgiving this week.  Going to be raining here.  Bah humbug!

  1. We had our Thanksgiving last month, of course (Canada) and I quite like that it's not so close to Christmas. But I didn't cook, either, as it's just me. Sometimes I do, but I didn't feel like it this year. Definitely will do turkey or chicken (prefer chicken) for Christmas though. I hope you and your sons have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I love the idea of going out, much better than spending the day in the kitchen for 20 minutes of eating!

  2. A nice stress free and very pleasant way to spend your Thanksgiving. I am doing a turkey and chicken as that is what is in the freezer, lol. Have moved them to the frig to thaw slowly.

  4. Lol, I understand your frustation, sweetie, but the way you said it could stop me laughing. So sorry :O
    I used to cook for ALL the holidays and winter was the worst being so close together. So finally I decided on all the turkey stuff for Thanksgiving, and then for Christmas I'd do an entire Tenderloin or 2 or 3 and none of the same sides. It was a hit and I continued with that until.....well, until a "change in living abodes" came about, lol. Ahh the lovely world of divorce. Doesn't matter, it's a good, good life and my Sam & Lucy (new to me since all that other stuff happened) are pleased as punch! So I say, hit that restaurant, eat until there's no room left, go home and have even more desserts, stretch out and take a nap, get up and have a snack, lol, and just enjoy all the fun it brings. Happy Thanksgiving, sweets :D

  7. Ohhh, no, no, nooooooo, the wiggler is BATTERY operated! I'd go nuts if I had to wire everything outside, lol. The battery (can't remember if it's a double A, 2 double A's or a little 9, or whatever) but it's supposed to last for 3 months. Mine has lasted longer than that. Great gadget. Darn shame blogger doesn't have "voice", lol.

  8. Enjoy eating out. I used to cook for my family in my home, limited space now. Everyone cooks and I do the visiting now. I don't even mind going out alone on Thanksgiving, which I have done years ago. I didn't live close to my boys then. I hate you had a problem with that cantankerous 'no it all.'Maybe he'll have to work...lol

  9. We always had turkey for Christmas, Thanksgiving and EAster and Mom usually did another one about two other times a year we loved it so much.

    And yes, pharmacists are ruder by the day. But so are so many of their customers when they can't afford their meds. Sigh.

  10. My gosh after doing the shopping for Thanksgiving today I wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper for us to go out. Good news is we need the left overs for lunches as we have our music group out all through the weekend. Personally I prefer turkey as well but then I'm kinda old fashioned. BTW I sent you an e-mail you may be interested in. Blessings Carole, have a good one.

  11. Lovely fog. I grew up with back-to-back turkeys. Now that I run my own house, it's turkey for Thanksgiving, standing rib roast for Christmas, ham for New Year's day (with black-eyed peas and collards), and lamb for Easter. Sometimes it's ham for Easter if lamb is too expensive.

  12. If it is a local pharmacy the one pharmacy can fax all needed info to new one. I did that at home once with no hassle. You are doing the right thing as there is no cause for rudeness.
    I really like the idea of eating out, no preparation and no dishes to do.

  13. I have had a butterball dark & light boneless for months so i will do that. I was invited out but havent decided. The pharmacies can do the switching for you- I just went through that.
