Chairs and Chai

I have the whole house to myself!!! No one is home!!!

This happens SO infrequently for me that I am LOVING it! Hub is at some Boy Scout function, Daughter is working and Youngest Son is working out. Itís cold and rainy outside and Iím watching the Eaglesí game, reading my journals and drinking a Chai Tea from Starbucks. What could be better? As soon as the game ends, Iím heading for my pile of books.

Hub and I ran to BJís today and bought 4 folding chairs at 19.99 a piece. Theyíre padded with beige fabric and theyíre very comfortable. SSSSHHHHH!!!!! Donít tell anyone, Ďcause you know that someone is going to want to borrow them for a damn party and Iím not lending them out! I donít need some drunk Irishman tossing them across a room after heís gotten his ďloadĒÖand Kathy if you tell anyone in the family, Iíll know who squeeled.

I bought the chairs because Iím hosting Thanksgiving this year. Iím having about 16 people. Half of us will be eating in the dining room and the other half will be in the denÖor in the living room in front of that damn 55 inch TV that sucks your eyes out of your head! Most of the family will be visiting my Dad in the nursing home before we eat Ė my mom is actually going to have the big feast with him at lunch time.

I visited him yesterday and he actually seems to be doing OK. The staff insists that you get dressed in the morning and he looked good in his pants and his Navy sweatshirt. He was sitting on his bed watching the new TV my sister had bought him. She also bought him lots of snacks, like nuts and chocolate and Fig Newtons. His eyes lit up! My Dad has always been a junk food junkie.

While we were there, a man and woman came in to visit their parent and they bought their guitar and violin. They started to play some songs and all of the seniors came to the doors of their rooms to listen. It was really nice. I wish I had some kind of talent to entertain my dad Ė well, I guess I do, I can make him laugh.
