Every year for Thanksgiving we go to visit my mom's family in Albany, Georgia. This is our usual agenda for Thanksgiving Day:
- Baron & I drive over there Thursday morning. We usually get to my aunt & uncle's house just in time for dinner.
- When we get there, everyone feasts on our traditional Thanksgiving vittles: turkey, ham, dressing, Veg-all casserole, sweet potato casserole, cranberry salad, green beans (or green bean casserole), rolls, and of course an assortment of desserts.
- After we eat, we sit around & watch T.V. The girls usually watch some girly movie in the front living room, and the guys watch football in the back den. I actually usually end up watching football because I'm not interested in the movies my mom & Tata (my grandmother) choose to watch in the girly room. (No offense, mom & Tata!)
- Right about halftime of whatever game is on, someone suggests that we go for a walk. Some people have already fallen asleep at this time, so you never know who will attend the walk. This year it was just me, Baron, & my dad. I think everyone else was too busy watching the girly movie.
- Back to watching T.V. (Sometimes we go to the local putt-putt/go-carts place & hang out, but we opted out of that this year.)
- Eat turkey sandwiches for supper.

Also, for some reason there were chickens in the neighborhood. I don't know whose chickens they were, but when we got back from the ladybug adventure, of course I snapped a picture. I tried to get a closer one but they were scared of me. I don't know why...I was only running after them with my camera phone in the air like a psyho blogger capturing the moment. Anyway, here are the Thanksgiving chickens in my aunt & uncle's yard.

I've been dealing with a cold since Saturday, and I decided it was time to destroy it. I'd been taking Nyquil every night since then, but I'm always wary of daytime medicines because they make me drowsy (despite the non-drowsy promise plastered on the box). Anyway, last night at Wal-Mart I decided to try Sudafed PE Cold & Cough. I've taken regular Sudafed before - the tiny little red tablets - and they don't make me sleepy or anything. So this morning I took the daytime Sudafed, and now I am regretting it. I just bent over in my chair to pick up a staple I dropped, and I nearly toppled over as a result of my drunken stupor. What is wrong with me? Why can't I take non-drowsy medicine and NOT get drowsy? Does anyone else have this problem? So I guess the only time I can take anything for my cold is at night before I go to bed. Boooo.
By the way, it just took me like 15 minutes to type this post because my brain is not capable of telling my fingers what to do right now.
