what gives?

So, I'm here. Me and my crappy back. I've essentially been in the bed for five days, and I am totally stir crazy. I watched three movies yesterday. I've read two very long novels and most of another book. I've napped...and I've stared at the ceiling, thinking of all the things I would prefer to be doing. I am very fortunate to have family and friends who've willingly cared for my child since M has been out of town all but one day of my convalescence. So, here are all of the random things I've been going over in my head.
  • Val Kilmer's career peaked when he starred in The Doors. That was one of the movies that I watched yesterday. Also, Jim Morrison was way more captivating than Val Kilmer.
  • Away We Go is an awesome, awesome movie. For grown-ups. Little sisters, stay away.
  • Phillipa Gregory should do me a favor and stop writing books. Please. (She reads my blog, right?)
  • Robert Pattinson is pretty. Check out Vanity Fair. Oy.
  • Today, when I could no longer stand being in the house (and I did actually have to leave the house due to an utter lack of coffee beans), I ventured out. S has needed some new panties, so I hit the Wal-Mart. (Gasp.) I am terribly saddened by the fact that I cannot buy my daughter's undies in the toddler section. I had to go to the GIRLS section and buy her undies next to the training bras. She must stop growing. Must. I am not prepared for this. If there are thong options the next time I have to buy her panties, I will cry. Right in the store. Real tears.
  • I am hoping that Yum and my hubby had a yummy dinner last night. I am hungry.
  • I am anxiously awaiting Thanksgiving. Anxiously.
I'll leave you with a couple of pics of our Friday afternoon. The weather was lovely.
S, playing under the table...there were dolls and quilts and stickers and crayons and all manner of fun for a two-year-old.
Then there was mama's fun. Coffee and Bill Bryson...too bad you can't see the heating pad.

Well, he sure didn't play Batman well, that's for sure.

Not to be annoying, but are you anxiously awaiting Thanksgiving or eagerly awaiting it? My stepdad always reminds me not to interchange those two. Me, a little of both, but it's mostly eagerness. :-)

OH! I'm sorry about your back. And the dinner was terrific, but it would have been better if you were there!
When I'm sick I try to overdose on magazine (like the Martha Stewarts that I never get around too).

Thanksgiving - YES!
