Happy Thanksgiving! Leftover Turkey

I better get on the eliptical...the eating season begins! Thanksgiving is Thursday - I can't believe it! I'm pretty picky about turkey dinners, i'm picky about how the stuffing is done, gravy kinda grosses me out unless I make it, but I like the actual turkey and mashed potatoes and veggies. I really like string bean casserole too. I will be some kind of broccoli and cheese thing to Los's parents house, where we just had turkey on Wednesday night...everything except the cauliflower! I think if I began to host Thanksgiving, I would make everything wednesday and have the delicious opened face sandwiches on Thursday, that's the best part! So anyway, if i can get my hands on some white meat - i think i'll make Hot Browns. The Hot Brown is some delicious concoction that The Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY came up with in the 1920's. It's toast, turkey, tomatoes, bornay sauce (cheezy bechamel) and yes, bacon. Los, please make extra bacon. So....what are you doing with your leftover turkey?

Thanks Septa

My train was 40 minutes late this morning. I had my winter coat on and and kind of a light sweater and before I left my house, I thought, maybe I should put another sweater on, thank god I did. I stood outside for about 25 mins, then decided to go in to the place where you buy tickets, which is the size of a shoebox, and that was standing room only, then, we were told to go to the other side of the track and wait even longer. I then got on the train with numb feet and had to stand on a ridicuolously packed train to move a little, then come to a complete standstill. I finally got to the city. I never thought i'd be so happy to see the subway train.

Oh my goodness, its been a long time. I think i finally caught my breath. I am in advertising and worked on "campaigns" i'm sure you can guess what they were. I worked late, then got home ate dinner, then back on the computer, so i really didnt really want to post a blog. So, it gets company has declared chapter 11, like most companies these days, so we've known that for a while, then we went into chapter 7, what the hell is that? And this was announced when i could hardly get into the coference room because i was too bizzy. Well the company is still in business, and got on to Los's insurance, so thats good.
I am preparing for a lay off, so it is a lil scary BUT, i'm still working - I should know something in a week. AND, i was smart a put an emergency fund away. I saw something on the news about how you should have a 6 month nest egg away and I did it, but its tough to have to dip in, I'd rather buy a Louie! Any way, if i didnt have Los by my side and his encouraging comments, and beer on thursdays, i dont know what i would do. Any way, if you do have a job, please do your best to support yourself and your family! oh, and if you're hiring..wink, wink!hahhaaahh!!
