Thanksgiving is tomorrow!!

I am so happy about Thanksgiving(s) this year. I think it's becoming one of my favorite holidays. All the food without having to worry about all the presents. Speaking of presents...must start Christmas shopping soon. Spain kind of derailed my usual promptness with shopping. I'm usually more than half way done by now.

Yay for a half day today and then 4 days off that will be filled with eating and sleeping :)

Back into the Swing of Things

Mr. B and I are back from I miss thee!!! Seville was my favorite city on our whirlwind tour of Spain. The food, the wine, the sites...AMAZING! I'll post a few of our favorite pics later on this week when I get some time to catch up.

Today is Mr. B's birthday!! Yay! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I gave him his present yesterday and he was pretty excited. More gym equipment; just what our 1,000 square foot condo needs :P I think we're going out to dinner at Prospector's tonight to celebrate. Tomorrow I have class (b00), but at least it's the second to last one! So excited for that! Wednesday I'm hoping we'll get out early and then at night we have Mr. B's 10th high school reunion.

Back to the grind is more like it...

It's final...Barack Obama is our president. Hopefully he can do something to turn our craphole country around. I found out last night that my vote and Mr. B's vote canceled each other out. NJ was still a blue state though. I was surprised by his vote, but that's his choice.

I was kind of disappointed in the turn out even though they said that voters came out in record numbers. There were only about 500,000 voters in Delaware and other states were even lower. The radio this morning said that only 60-some% of NJ voters voted today as opposed to the JFK-Nixon election where 91% of NJ voters voted.

I voted

I thought I'd be the only one lining up to vote this morning at 6am...boy was I wrong! There was a freakin line around the corner of the damn EMT building. Thank god I was able to get out of the parking lot alive. I went back a little later in the morning and it was pretty darn empty. Yay for doing my civic duty!

I think I'm having an axiety attack...wonderful. I should not have come into work today. I have 2 stupid meetings that are going to take up the majority of my day and I have so much to get done before we leave for Spain on Sunday. I've only practiced my presentation once or twice and I feel like I'm going to bomb when they ask me questions.

Friday Mr. B and I went to the Phils Parade. We were on Broad St. at around 8am and basically stood in the same spot for 5 hours. It was well worth it though...we had a blast and it was nice to get to spend some one on one time together. After the parade we tried to get back on the train, but it was so crowded. There was a line out into the street, so we walked down to La Scala's in Jeweler's Row. After lunch we caught the train at 8th and Market and only had to wait about 20 minutes for an open train car.

Saturday we went to dinner with Mr. B's dad and my parents for my birthday. We went to Mirabella Cafe in Cherry Hill and the food was really good. I have leftovers for lunch today :) Mr. B said that I was tanked from the wine and wouldn't stop talking. Then I got into bed and was out like a light.

Yesterday my parents and my sister came over for lasagna and cake. I was happy that I got to open some presents. I got a set of golf clubs, golf balls, golf towels, a gift certificate to get my nails done, a new work shirt and a dressy wrap that I'll probably wear to a wedding this weekend. I'm looking forward to the wedding on Saturday so Mr. B and I can finally relax. We have been so insanely busy the past couple of months that I feel like I'm running on fumes. I don't even care if we just eat and drink all day in long as I don't have to be anywhere at a certain time or do anything.

I'm just so fried--I didn't even know how old I was when the waiter asked me on Saturday and I hadn't even had a drink yet. I always take off of work for my birthday and I didn't today and now I have to try to be interested in meetings. Today sux. Getting old sux. I'm in a horrible mood.
