Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Today Jasmine and I spent the day out together. We went to the mall and bought her a couple of sweaters. Then we went to Kohl's to look at shoes for her. (clearance) She was fairly well behaved. She had gotten up about five hours earlier than she is used to (trust me, I had nothing to do with it). When you have an overly tired kid, one of two things happens 1) They're obnoxious monsters from hell 2) they're obnoxious monsters from hell. ;) With one of them, they're grouchy, cry easily and just in general not fun to be around. With the second, they are overly hyper, everything is a game and they don't listen... at all. Jasmine was the second. It's preferred over the first. If she's going to ignore me, at least she can be happy go lucky while she does it. After we ate, we headed to Walmart and I told her she could get a toy. Normally I don't reward good behavior in this way but I had already been planning on letting her get a toy before I knew how she was going to behave. She decided to pick out a horse that had enough glitter on it to suffocate a lion. I'll be picking glitter off myself for the next six months. She's been asleep for about an hour now. Ahhh, blissful silence. Now I'm off to take an ambien, hopefully fall asleep quickly, so I can eat till I want to puke... wait a few hours and eat some more. ;) You should do the same.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I will be stuffing myself like you and then eating some more.
Gotta go make some Green Bean Casserole and Deviled Eggs. Have a great Day with your loved ones! :)

Peace&Love

I am glad Jasmine was good in the store. I used to have to take Travis out of the store when he had tantrums. Embarrassing!
Funny I was reading about King Henry 8 and he used to have someone near him with a special dish he would vomit into when he got too full so he could eat more...

I laughed out loud at the "one of two things happens" bit! I'm glad all went well!

Love, Beth
