Thanksgiving; Sister Update; and Random Funnies: Random Tuesday Thoughts

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? I’ll be making my famous Champagne again this year, and since my mom has been having some inner ear issues coupled with vertigo, I’ll be cooking in her gourmet kitchen:

And enjoying the view of Mt. Rainier from her kitchen and dining room windows:

Those were the realtor pics from when she bought the house almost exactly two years ago, so she now has really cool furniture and decor that makes me wonder if she missed her calling as an interior decorator. I’ll have to take some pics when I’m there.

It took awhile, but she finally got the house of her dreams, and I couldn’t be more happy for her, especially with all that she’s gone through the past few years (losing my dad, her youngest daughter having a stroke, not to mention a myriad of other things). This will certainly be a year of thanks, especially with my sister rallying after her stroke.

Speaking of my sister, she’s doing great, was moved to a ‘regular’ hospital room (no more brain drain, no more feeding tube…woot!) She finally was able to have some ‘thick coffee’, too – one of the things she’d been asking for, since she’s a big like the rest of us. She’s ready to be relocated to a nursing facility, we’re just looking for the ‘right’ one, and one that has a room or bed available.

It would be nice if we could get her moved in time for Thanksgiving, and even nicer if she can join us at my mom’s house to be surrounded by family to the . Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words – they mean more than you’ll ever know.

It’s hard to fathom that Christmas is one month away… I’m not going to ask if you’re ready, because I’m sure not…heh!

Let’s on to the funnies, shall we? With Thanksgiving in the offing, I thought this particularly funny:

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.
