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?

Number Nine. Slow. Friends. Random.

Let me introduce you to my friends: Apple & Pumpkin

I’ve said it before, but I’d just like to re-state that Daniel Day-Lewis is totally my make-believe boyfriend. He’s yummy and he has that cute accent and he’s also brilliant. So, I’m really excited to see the new Rob Marshall movie, Nine. No endorsement here, I’m just lusting over DDL because I saw him on Oprah a few days ago.

I’m not usually super excited to see movie musicals, but any chance to see Daniel Day-Lewis sing and do a bunch of make out scenes? I’m there. It’s also cool to live in Los Angeles because we will get to see it before the rest of the country. Major release is on Dec 25.

Hmmmm… what other mundane thoughts are running through my head? This is a really lame time of the year for me every year. Work is slow, I go broke, I mope around because the phone isn’t ringing and then in January, things pick right back up again. It’s the two or so months of slow that make me insane though and I’m right in the middle of the insane period. Ugh.
Oh, Thanksgiving! My friend since 7th grade, Stacy, and her hubby Mike and boys, Brendan and Keenan, came for Thanksgiving. They were here for three nights and we had a great time watching the kids play and say things like, “Close the door and I’ll show you my pumpkin!” No one got seriously hurt and nothing got broken EXCEPT, the pumpkin (which is mendable with some duct tape). It was a holiday miracle!
The day after, we visited Nicholas Canyon Beach and played in the tide pools, stopped for tacos and burritos and then went home to swim in the pool. Yay for life in SoCal! It really was a fun few days and Aubrey and I were sad to see our friends leave.

Now I have this weird allergy/cold combo thing (not sure what it is) that just won’t go away. If I had some work right now, I’d go see my acupuncturist and she’d knock it right out, but I need to save my money for diapers and food and gasoline and other fun things like that. Sigh… OK, I’m being such a Debbie Downer. Sorry. Next post will be cheerier…
