This Thanksgiving I Learned…

by Heather on November 28, 2011

  1. That you actually will not fade away into nothingness if you don’t eat Thanksgiving dinner.
  2. In addition to #1, a Thanksgiving dinner consisting of mashed potatoes and cheesecake really isn’t all that bad.  Really.
  3. There are a LOT of baby things out there and I feel like the fact that I’m totally clueless about at least 98% of it probably means that I don’t have to have it.
  4. The baby likes to kick a lot now, especially when I eat, which I couldn’t be more thankful for.  It’s like on Thanksgiving Day he grew 10 inches (OK, maybe not actually) and started dancing in my belly.  I like this for many reasons – I can feel our baby more often now and it’s an excuse to eat more.  WINNING.
  5. Taking care of a sick husband is not my favorite thing ever…I don’t like to see him hurting.  And it’s a lot easier to deal with me throwing up than someone else.  It’s training for motherhood though…right?
  6. Setting up Christmas decorations is kind of the best ever.  Taking them down on the other hand…let’s just say I’m glad we have a while til that happens.
  7. Christmas tree skirts are insanely expensive.
  8. Baby equipment is even more insanely expensive.
  9. Baby bedding is the worst of all in the expense category (well, when you want something that’s not a soft pastel blue for your son it is).
  10. I really really REALLY need to learn how to sew.  I wonder if sewing machines are expensive (something is telling me YES THEY ARE).
  11. Burlesque and When in Rome are not the best movies ever.
  12. I miss my family more than ever and would do just about anything to spend at least the holidays around them, even if it’s just talking on the phone.
  13. I like football more than I thought.  Good thing we’re having a boy…
  14. Life is short.  Tell the people you love that you ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM – it may be the only chance you get!

Every Thanksgiving from here on out will be forever different. And this Thanksgiving will be a potato and cheesecake filled memory.

Re: sewing. I have a decent sewing machine that was about $110. It is this one:

If you don’t need/want the quilting features, they also have some that are less expensive. Not too shabby, price-wise!
