Catch Up Fridays

(Cathy) It's now official ladies. As of the 15th of November I will be working full time. It will be a rotating schedule, probably five days on with three days off. I bid next Wednesday. Let's hope there is something decent left for me when my turn comes. (Sunshine) Cathy, I hope that you get an excellent shift.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone! We are off to my sister's this year. I am only responsible for the butternut squash soup with chorizo. My brother in law will be doing most of the cooking this year. I think it is so great that your family takes turns. That way know one feels burnt out hosting and cooking for a large crowd.

Hey, my girlfriend from Calgary, Carol, arrives next Thursday to prepare to, once again, run the Scotiabank Toronto Full Marathon! She ran a pb, (personal best) last year and I know she will do great again this year! Yeah for Carol, I am sure you two will have a great time again this year.

My cousin, Chris, and his two sons are running the Half Marathon in the same race. The race is being held on Sunday, October, 16th, 2011. Good luck to everyone!

I am taking a few minutes here to blog as I have been running around all day and then going out with my mom and some friends from work to a comedy show tonight. I am expecting 22 for dinner tomorrow and bought all that was needed today. I am already tired. I have been very vocal this year with my extended family that we (as in all of us) need to step up to the plate and start taking turns hosting these large family dinners. So far it has fell on deaf ears. Needless to say I will NOT be hosting Christmas dinner for a large crowd this year.

Hi ladies. It has been a very busy week. Thanksgiving lunch for all of the students at school and it was crazy busy. I worked from 7:00an t0 3:-00pm both Thursday and Friday. It was so busy and very exhausting. Then miss Teen Sunshine worked Friday night from 6:00pm until 2:00am once again this week. Then on Saturday we had all of Mr Sunshine's family over for thanksgiving dinner and now its Sunday and I am exhausted and taking a bit of a break. Tomorrow will be my families side but my little sister is hosting it so that makes me very happy. Thanks so much little Sis!!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. You ladies are so fortunate to have "found" each other. Many lifelong friendships have been formed this way. I remember meeting one of my dearest friends at a bus-stop. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I shall be popping in more often.

  2. Hi Chris!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I hope to see you on Sunday!
