The Latest

So here it is the day before Thanksgiving. What is your plan for tomorrow, the day that's called Thanksgiving? The plan for this family is to attend dinner at the relative's house of the relatives of my daughter's boyfriend. I just draw a blank for their official title. What I mean is that yes, they are definitely related to him, but I can't remember the relationship. I suppose it doesn't really matter. I just wish I could remember what I was told it was, that's all. I guess an asking is in order. I'd say his grandparents because that would make sense, but it seems as though I was told something else. I'm probably wrong.
I did indeed do like I suggested that I should, went and got boxes to pack our stuff in. Obviously I didn't do it just to collect boxes, though none of them have been filled. They're all just sitting in my bedroom waiting to have something put in them. Anyway, the plan on moving to Missouri has been changed. I have decided to stay in Texas. The reason is because my 18 year old son doesn't want there to be so much distance between his older sister and himself, which I can understand. As of right this minute the probable plan is to move to a small town/city named Burnet, TX (pronounced: Burn-it). There are only about 6600 residents there, whereas Austin has around 843,000, give or take. Quite the difference. Burnet is about 60 miles from here. My son and I drove there last week to give it a look-see, but ended up just visiting with a couple who lives there, that we met here about a year and a half ago, and didn't look around at all except driving in and out. Anyway, my plan is to go back on this Friday and actually look at places to rent. If there is anything, and I know there is, I have to make arrangements to move in around the middle of January, after the lease for this apartment expires. I'm just hoping that the weather is suitable for moving, which it has to be because we have to go somewhere. So I guess it doesn't matter what the weather is like. We plan on taking the furniture, which will probably include the wash machine and dryer, which means that I also have to arrange to rent a moving truck. U-Haul is pretty popular here (where isn't it, right?), so we'll probably go with them. Although a good friend of mine suggested that I look into someone like "Two Men and a Truck" and just let them move our stuff for us. Haven't done that yet, but will before the actual move.
So there ya go, that is the plan as of right now.

My plan tomorrow is to cook way too much food for us and be forced to find a way to make it all fit in the fridge when we are done. I don't know why the heck we need a 20 turkey with only three people to eat it. And we just HAVE to have both kinds of potatoes, etc.

Why can't the entry be edited???? Anyway that was supposed to be 20 POUND turkey.

That's a good question... why do you need a 20 lb turkey?

I don't know the answer to the other question either.

I hope you had a great time at the dinner. Your moving plan sounds good--you are more a small town guy at heart and I think you would be happier that way. Good luck!

Todd said...

I did have a good time. The food was awesome! We played a couple games of "Uno", and I won them both. lol

I think you're right about me being more 'small town/country' than city. Hopefully it'll be a good move.
