We just got back from our Thanksgiving with my mother in law. It was a lovely (if cold, dry, and windy!) visit, but I am glad to be home. There’s just nothing like your own bed, your own space, your own stuff, you know?

But I am super excited that we got sent home with the excellent Thanksgiving dinner leftovers–my MIL made one spectacular turkey, and I’m giddy that we got to bring the spoils home with us.


Hmmm, maybe the use of the word spoils when talking about food isn’t the best?


While we were there, I had to deal with some stuff with Covered CA, health insurance, and proving income. There had been some snafus in the whole process, and I bitched about it on Twitter, and I have to give their social media team props–they were able to get me resolution that multiple calls into the customer service lines hadn’t gotten me. I had someone call me specifically after reviewing our case, giving me the correct information, and giving me direct contact information for the one aspect they couldn’t answer for me. I’m still fairly irritated at some of the nonsense we went through, but again, props to their social team. They reached out to me, and fixed something I hadn’t been able to fix on my own. A+ service, would tweet again.


One bonus of having a light Christmas this year is that I’m almost completely done with all the gift shopping for everyone. I should be able to finish up this week (excluding the last minute food based stocking stuffers), and while I’m not thrilled with the reason WHY, I’m not gonna lie, I’m not sad that I’ll be done soon.


I think I’ve put back on all the weight I lost this summer. I feel like this should make me sadder than it is, but mostly I’m just glad I’m not in the mental place I was then that made me lose all that weight.


If you hear a random meowing sound, I’m pretty sure that’s my cat, meowing about how pissed he is that we left. He’s loud enough that I swear you can hear him several states over.


Can we all get an AMEN that school starts again on Monday? I mean, REALLY.

Amen indeed! My kiddo started daycare today, part-time, and I knew in theory that I would get hours – plural – back but seriously cannot believe the freedom that has returned to my day! Wheeee!
