Happy Thanksgiving! Spent the day with dad at the hospital, but for some reason, he was very agitated. He would insist on getting out of bed (which I totally refused of course) or even sit up and hang his legs over the bed (no orders from the doctor yet). Then he'd mouth off, mumbling under his breath about people's stupidity and thick heads. Aaaargh! Yup, Dad sure is feeling better! hhehehehe. These are all good signs, signs that he really is feeling much much better! :)

Thanksgiving, a time to give thanks for sure, most especially seeing Dad getting better. It's a slow process, yes, but like I keep telling him, at least he IS progressing and getting better, getting stronger. It's okay if it's slow-going, just as long as it's happening.

In the early afternoon, Mom figured correctly that Dad and I were at loggerheads, hahahahahaha! A very correct assumption for mother dear! I tried explaining logically, pleadingly, sarcastically....nothing worked! Ack! This is what happens when he doesn't get proper sleep the night before!

We finally sat down to dinner with Mom at 9 pm. Stef and Noj were there to complete our table. We had turkey (Mom did a decent job for her very first turkey!!!), prime rib (Roc surprisingly came out with a winner, hehehehe), salpicao (courtesy of Noj, who poured on the garlic for a totally delish dish which I used on my salad), some fish, mashed potatoes, salad, yams (Roc burnt the marshmallows the first time around, so we scooped those off the yams and tried a second time, hahahahaha!), cranberries, the works! We finished off with chocolate cake from Christina (Stella's cousin from here).

All in all, it was a GREAT meal, I was stuffed! Aaaaaahhhhhhh. The only thing that would have made it perfect? Dad at the table and our entire family together for this meal. Not that we've EVER been complete for Thanksgiving, but it would have been nice to have the kiddos there :)

Ok, off to SHOP. Yup, you read right. Shop, not sleep :)
