On Friday I had a very exciting day. I went to work and then I came home and cleaned. Living the high life, right? I spent the majority of my Friday evening giving Hank and Scout baths, cleaning our bathrooms, and dusting the bedrooms (including the ceiling fans which only get dusted about once a year and they were dusty!). Did I mention we’re hosting Thanksgiving at our house? We did this last year, and I love hosting. It’s probably a good thing, because otherwise the ceiling fans would never get dusted!
I did end the night by watching Hunger Games with Barry in preparation for Catching Fire, even though I know the first movie by heart. I tried to have a photo shoot with the dogs but they were not having a very photogenic evening.

This morning I met up with Kim for a 3 mile walk. She’s about 2 weeks from her due date and unfortunately running is off limits now. But I was cool with a walk and glad to hang out with her and catch up (and share all the dirty details from the marathon!). I spent the rest of the morning and part of the day doing some more cleaning. Finally in the afternoon it was time for Barry and me to meet up with Kim and her husband to see Catching Fire! I couldn’t Instagram a picture of my movie tickets with the name of the movie on them like everyone else, though, because we saw it at the $4 theater and they use raffle tickets. But the good news is I purchased two movie tickets, a jumbo tub of popcorn and a soda all for $16! I don’t even think I could get two movie tickets at a regular theater for that price.
After the movie we did our big Thanksgiving grocery trip. Luckily the only essentials the store was out of were pie crusts and butter. They were really low on eggs, too, but that’s not something we have to buy anymore.
One good thing about winter being upon us is the return of clementines! We also lucked out and got the very last store brand turkey breast (way better than Butterball). I’m sure they will get more in before Thanksgiving, but that was the last one they had in the store. It didn’t have a tag on it, so I took it to the meat department to get it weighed and tagged and the employee gave us a discount because of the missing tag! I think I just used up the rest of my luck for this year with that one, but it was totally worth it.
Who else saw Catching Fire?? (no spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen it, yet!)
Anyone else hosting for Thanksgiving?
What was the last lucky thing that happened to you?
