November 17

I changed the back ground. I'd love to change it more but I don't know where everyone goes to get the fancy back grounds and such because they sure don't have that much of a selection here.
I stumbled a bit yesterday but I did NOT fall! I lit a cigarette, and put it out, it tasted nasty. I did that just to see if I would slip and I don't think I will. I have also gained weight and look horrible! I'm hungry a lot more often now, either that or it's because I have to take my pill with food twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. If I don't eat before I take it, I get really sick to my stomach.

I put my Thanksgiving decorations up today and I made my Thanksgiving menu the other day:
Turkey, probably cajuin spice injected
bread stuffing from scratch
sweet potatoes (Fresh, NOT canned)
mashed potatoes & gravy (cooked by J.)
fresh green beans sauted with red bell peppers
fresh fruit salad
cranberry relish (made from scratch)
chocolate cream pie
pumpkin pie
Edited to add:
shrimp cocktail for an appetizer
deviled eggs
J. is thinking of making a roast as well, I don't know why.
I might add shrimp cocktail to that menu. This and Christmas are the only meals I like to get formal for and that is because that is the way I grew up, with very formal holiday dinners.
I prefer pumpkin pie from scratch but they don't sell pumpkins here. This is also the time when I break out the eggnog to start the other holiday season off.

The past couple of days I have been sneezing like crazy and blowing my nose. It is getting really annoying, I don't know if it's the fall allergies acting up or the cat fur, the dust I've stirred up cleaning or just what.

I ordered 2 thanksgiving turkeys to be delivered to both of my kids, I hope they get there safely. I also orderd my DH's Christmas present today and my daughter's husband's presents.
