Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Such.....

So, yesterday was Thanksgiving. We spent the day at home just our small little family and Shane's dad.
We opted not to cook a big turkey because Shane wanted to just try a boneless turkey breast. A long time ago a friend of ours cooked one, and it was awesomly moist and yummy. Well, ours sucked lol. We got the deli meat because that is what we thought she used. Apparently not. I think she used actual turkey breast. Not this pressed deli meat turkey. It is not nearly as good as a homemade turkey. Lesson learned.
Shane's dad and I both fell asleep on the couches and had some nice afternoon nappies. I loves me a nice siesta lol.
Then, later, we decided to give the early Black Friday sales a go along with some friends next door. Ummm.........can you say craziness? Lol. We started at around 6:00 on Thursday night and continued on through Friday morning off and on. Tiring! But, we got what we came for, and then some. \
I got a wireless router (yay!) and some security software for Shane's computer. We are going to dump it and restore it to factory settings now that I have a laptop. They had some REALLY good prices on that, so I was happy.
Shane got a PS3 Move system and a few games. He's pretty excited. I hope it works because I really liked playing the Wii and Kinect at the neighbor's house. If it works, we could have some fun family nights.
Anyway, that about sums up the last couple of days here in the Scott house. Going deer hunting with some friends tomorrow and the boys will go goose hunting Sunday.
I tried to upload pics, but apparently there is a 1 GB limit to how many I can post now? Lame! So, what, now all my blog posts can only be texts? Maybe I'll have to quit blogging and just use facebook. Hmmm...........that sucks!

Long Time No Post

Wow. Haven't blogged in a while. Wondering if it's even worth it now that we have facebook lol. It is good for when you have a lot more to say than seems appropriate for facebook though.
So, what have we been up to? Ummm.......pretty much nothing. That's a little sad. But true. Shane and Garrett have gone pheasant hunting a lot. And, our friend, Dustin, is doing the bow hunt this year (for deer). Shane went on opening morning with him and his family out to Tabiona yesterday. They saw a monster buck. The kind Shane dreams of.......a non-typical freak with points going everywhere. But, alas, the shooter didn't see it in time. He wanted to cry. They both did lol.
As for me, not much really. Work takes it all out of me, so I pretty much don't do anything after I get home except play on the computer and watch TV with Shane. I've made a few Christmas cards, but haven't really been able to decide on one for 'the card' this year. I'm just not as into it as usual. Which just makes me sad. I just have to much going on with work and home that is stressful. Takes the holiday spirit right out of you, ya know?
I have been trying out a few recipes I'm finding on Pinterest. Most have turned out really good. There was just one that I really pretty much didn't like. But I don't remember what it was.
I got a new camera (because I dropped mine straight on the lens and broke it). And, I got a laptop! Yes, finally a laptop. I love it. It's fast, and it's pretty. That's all I care about lol. It is red. I need to find out how to make our router wireless though. So, I'm still stuck in the office away from all the action in the house. Which is kind of the point in getting a laptop--to be in the action, right? Grrr.........I hate technology sometimes. Wish there was just a button that said "Wireless On" or something simple, you know?
Thanksgiving is coming up next week. Normally we would have put out the Christmas decorations this weekend. But, I didn't want to do it while the house was dirty. So I spent most of my weekend cleaning. Hopefully I can work up the energy to get it all out and up before Thanksgiving. I like the atmosphere it creates for the holiday.
Welp, it is close to bedtime thirty now. So I'm going to hop off. Hopefully I'll be back with some fun holiday pics or something crafty to share soon.
