Anderson Family Thanksgiving Update

We are here in rural MN!! Here’s a quick run down of the Anderson family Thanksgiving frolic and drama, thus far:


– Airplane ride with Aubrey went very smoothly. She’s an angel to travel with until…
– Got to the rental can and Aubrey hated the smell of the air freshener so much she started to cry and screamed, “This car smells disgusting!” Right in front of the Enterprise lady. That lady was a bitch anyway, so it’s all good. 
– Boyfriend arrived on a separate flight and has been on good man behavior
– Mom fell and broke her shoulder yesterday (uh… yes)
– Went to a big indoor water park with Aubrey, SIL, nephew and boyfriend today which was a much needed getaway from the house for the kids. And adults. 
– Have eaten more carbs in 3 days than I’ve eaten in all of 2011 leading up to now
– Found out my mom’s bathroom scale is 4 lbs under actual weight. DAMN YOU SCALE!
– Got my newsletter mailed out
– Got an interview for a show I’d love to be on
– Watched the new episode of Modern Family with MY Modern Family
– Ate Dairy Queen and Culver’s – awwwwww yeaaaaaahhhh!
– Back is killing me from the very stiff mattress in my parents’ guest room
– Having a great time being with Aubrey. She makes every day sun shiny!


Tomorrow is the big T-Day. We’ll see if my boyfriend drinks too much and picks a fight with me, how long it takes for either my dad, my brother or me to yell at my mother to sit down and rest (remember, she broke her shoulder?! She WILL attempt to do it all with a sling and an oxygen tank.) and if Aubrey can make if through one more day with her cousin without a time out. She came VERY close tonight.


Tis the season! I give thanks for my interesting family. What else would I blog about?

Baxter, MN - Land of 10,000 Yawns


Hi Ho!

I’m in the beautiful town of Baxter, MN. This is where my parents live and I have come up to visit with them and help them out around the house while my dad recovers from a hip replacement surgery. While I’m glad to be here for them, sitting indoors most of the day made me realize how active I am. I’m not very good at sitting still unless it’s in a movie theater or there is food going into my mouth. My parents’ house is not a movie theater, but there are donuts and chips here. There will be running and swimming when I return to SoCal. Like a big dummy, I forgot my running shoes and have only gotten out for short walks.

SO, I am feeling a bit lethargic and doughy.  I can’t stop yawning! It’s really weird feeling this way because I’m so used to chasing around a toddler and/or trying to get one million things done before she wakes up or after she goes to bed. Life moves fast in the Anderson house. The Anderson house in L.A., that is. Things are a little slower post-hip replacement here at the Anderson house in Baxter. 
I have done such exciting things as: prepare meals, wash dishes, clean up cat barf, clean up cat barf, prepare meals, wash dishes, take out the trash, clean up cat barf, brush the cat, fill the bird feeder, prepare meals and wash dishes. It’s all part of being here, for now.
Also, this is not the town I grew up in. My parents retired here a few years ago and it’s a little, uh, rural for my taste. These are some pictures from my outing to the lovely mall today. Enjoy. This truck has so many things going on, I’m not really sure where to look: the Confederate flag, a Jesus fish, 2 McCain bumper stickers, 2 Marriage = (stick man) + (stick woman) bumper stickers, the side window has an American flag with an eagle on it and the license is a Vietnam vet plate. LOTS going on! 
I’ll be home a few days and then I’ll be getting ready for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party! Yo Gabba Gabba theme! WOO-HOO! I can’t wait! I hope you are all having a fun and productive week… yawn.
