Short Weekend

Why do the weekends have to go by so fast? As always it was a wonderful weekend with Susan. We watched lots of movies and spent a lot of time just talking and laughing. I love how we always are laughing about something. She has the best sense of humor and never know when she is going to say something that will have me laughing for the next 5 minutes.

Today we were hanging out and there was a knock on the door. My first thought was maybe it was one of my neighbors. Susan's first thought.......it's the Jehovah's. She was right. How ironic that the "Jehovah's" stopped by while I was spending a romantic weekend with my girlfriend. Who wants to hear how my conversation went with them? :)

My sugar are getting a lot better. Today it even got down to 122, which it probably hasn't been in a long time. I am finding that I am really stopping and thinking about things before I eat them. My sugars were a little high this morning and I know it was because I had a small regular coke last night. I am glad that I am checking my sugars daily and kind of look at lowering my numbers as a competition.

I probably won't see Susan until Thanksgiving, which BTW, will be the day I meet her family. I am excited yet a little nervous. I really hope they like me. I keep asking what I can bring and Susan keeps saying nothing. I want to bring something, but have no idea what. Any suggestions????

What is a favorite Thanksgiving dish of yours? That's what you take!

I'm glad you had a good weekend. :)

I agree with lynilu! If they drink, you can't go wrong with wine either :)

How ironic that they showed up this weekend :)

a floral center piece for the table?

I was going to say wine, too -- if they drink.

Or, if you are feeling kitchen-y, you could make up this turkey-soup-mix-in-a-jar thing with a recipe attached to it for their leftover turkey (or some other time):

Hi there - I am one of your silent regular readers but I had to comment on what you should take for Susan's parents. I'm from the UK so don't really know what you eat at Thanksgiving but I suggest a home baked cake. Everyone loves a bit of home baking and it shows you have made a real effort!

It went down well when I met my partner's Dad - although he does expect a home baked cake everytime now!

Jenny from the UK xx

PS If you want a recipe let me know and I will send one to you!

I LOVE amy h's idea of the soup in a jar! I'm going to steal that for my next Examiner.com piece!

You could also bring a cute kitchen towel and oven mit set -- something neutral or something geared toward the holidays?
