That is, for most of us it was great, Haime had a sinus infection and grumbled his way through most of week. Of course, to add insult to infection, he didn't get to play golf last week, then he learned that one of his golfing buddies broke his leg (again), and will be out for an indeterminate amount of time. Poor Haime. He followed up the buzz-kill of Thanksgiving week by having a colonoscopy today. His is such an exciting life.
Speaking solely for myself then, I had a GREAT Thanksgiving. We generally have our Thanksgiving meal at lunch, as we did this year. All of my sisters and most of their families were gathered around the table(s) and, while there is usually some drama involved when families gather, we seemed to make it through the festivities with relatively little of that this year. The food was spectacular, the wine plentiful, (possibly the reason the drama was held to a minimum), and the company enjoyable. One of the highlights was getting to Skype my niece, Sarah, who is in Leeds, England. You just have to love technology!
Rather than participate in any "Black Friday" craziness, my sister Janet and I went to see Lincoln. Let me just say WOW! Haime and I used to go the the movies often but recently, we just don't seem to take the time or, we don't agree on which movies to see, or there are just none that either of us think are worth attending. This one is worth seeing, (possibly multiple times). If there are not multiple Oscar nominations for this flick, I will be very disappointed. Daniel Day-Lewis...INCREDIBLE. Of course the mid-nineteenth century insults are worth the price of admission on their own.
