Happy Turkey And/Or Pie Day!  
Spent the afternoon at my mom’s, just me and my sister and her. She made all the Thanksgiving yummies; turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, stuffing, green beans, rolls and olives. Then my aunt came over and we played Scrabble. Apparently it’s the new Thanksgiving tradition, now that the gatherings are much smaller because my little brother spends it with his in-laws. We played it last year and again this year - that‘s enough to call it a tradition, right? Then we all ate pie - pumpkin for me! I may have another piece when I am done here. It was nice, calm (unlike most of our family gatherings) and lasted about 3 hours, which was about all I could handle. (ceitfianna, my mom said to tell you Happy Thanksgiving - you were missed this year!). Then I came home and talked on the phone to The BFF for an hour - (yeah, that’s a normal amount of time for us) - and as soon as my sister gets back from church, there will be TV watching. Maybe we’ll finally start Almost Human. Or we also have the special edition of The Hobbit to breeze through, with its added scenes and 9 hours of bonus footage! Next weekend is the big, extended family gathering here at our house. I’m exhausted just thinking about it, but my brother and cousin will be here with their kids, so bonus!

Hope all your weekends are spectacular, people!

Have this card I made, back whenever.

ahahaha OMG, you knew what that movie was! I am delighted! I went through a phase where I thought it was the funniest thing just to yell at people, "I want my two dollars!" I was like 28 at the time. Yeah. That movie is hysterical and yet so stupid. I love it.

PS: I got so excited that you knew Better Off Dead that I forgot to say, 'I hope your Thanksgiving was also good!'

I am a little jealous of you.

I miss family gatherings like whoohah.

Thanks for sharing yours with us :)

I'm sorry you don't get to have family gatherings anymore. Everyone should have somewhere to spend the holidays. /hugs/

I was just thinking the other day about the huge, hours-long gatherings we used to have at my grandparents farm when I was a kid. Why is everything so different when we grow up?

Thanks for sharing yours with us :)

You are very welcome. Now onto Christmas! ;)

I had a lovely dinner with friends, but no pie. I think I need some pie.

Oh yes, you must have pie! What is Thanksgiving without pie?

We are now into thinking about making Christmas cookies already (to be fair, it is our family holiday party on Saturday and people expect my mom's Spritz cookies on the table!)

Glad you had a good Thanksgiving dinner, bb!

lol Well, now Christmas has come and gone and I am FINALLY replying to this comment. /shakes head/ But you and I have talked a few times since this on Tumblr anyway (it was really sweet to get your ask the other day over there, wondering how I was feeling and all).

My Thanksgiving was not bad actually and my Christmas was pretty good too. Both were low-key as I skipped about half the family obligations and though I did end up feeling rather ill Christmas night (the antibotics give me a stomachache) I rather liked laying in bed all night watching cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies and playing around on Tumblr. And next week I'll have a low-key New Years and then the holidays will be over and we can get back to our regularly scheduled program (literally, because our TV shows will be back - I have priorities!)

Hope all of your holidays were awesome too, bb!

I miss my TV shows too. (side note omg Chicago fire, they saved 51 but now Casey is in hospital? And I'll have to wait so long to see it)

I had a good Christmas, but like yours low key because of health. I won't be going out partying for new years, but I don't most years. Its my younger friends 21st on the 1st, so I want to try and do something around that time because it's a big birthday you know?

I KNOW, RIGHT?! Casey's fiancé gets killed, then he loses those kids he loved so much and now he's probably going to be in recovery for like a long time. Guy can't catch a break. But that means you are all caught up on the show!!! Now you have to wait like the rest of us suckers. Actually it apparently comes back tonight, which I guess means they changed the day of the week it is on (maybe to get it lined up with Chicago PD which I won't be watching because I can't stand that Voight guy). For a minute there when they were promoting Chicago PD, I got worried they might be doing a half-season of CFire and a half season of CPD, but nope, we get a full 24 eps of CFire! I can't wait to see Otis and Cruz living together!

I won't be going out partying for new years, but I don't most years. Its my younger friends 21st on the 1st, so I want to try and do something around that time because it's a big birthday you know?

Totally legit to save your energy for a 21st birthday party! I would too. For my New Years we just spent the night watching Orange is the New Black all night and eating from our party-food-tray, just me and The BFF. It was just the right speed for me, but I still paid the next day for staying up until midnight (usually still awake then but in my nice soft bed instead of the living room).

And it took me so long to get to this. I feel like such a bad friend!! Still sick but only came on here to post a bigbang fic, then I'm gonna crash again.

But yes, I can not wait for the new season and Otis and Cruz living together? That is going to be awesome.

I'm always up at midnight still anyway too, so New Years is no different for me. I'm glad you had a good time and I hope your feeling better than when we last talked.

Don't even worry about it. It took you about as long to reply to this one as it took me to reply to the one before it from you! (I have people on here that we have just gotten into a nice groove of once a month replying to each other's comments - it works for us! lol) I am sorry you have been so sick lately. You and I ,man, we need to catch a break here. Just a tiny little period of relief would be nice, right? I've reached the point where I am so bored laying around that I am just forcing myself to do things anyway, even though like at the moment I feel like I might hurl at any second. This has got to let up for us both some time, right?

I am better than I was before Christmas, for sure. But still not well, and am being told it may be a few more weeks before I am fully recovered, which boo that. But they have a new course of treatment we are trying, and though I have kind of given up on anything working, maybe it will. /shrug/ At least I can sit up for an hour or two and my sister says I am not as out of breath when I talk, so that's a plus.

I appreciate the little notes you send over on Tumblr though. It always makes me feel happy to know someone is thinking of me. <3 (If it helps, every time I have a bad health day, I think of you and hope you are having a good one.)

I haven't actually watched the new Chicago Fire eps yet. I got to trying to catch up on Revolution over the break and I want to get through that before I start watching any of my other show again (cuz once I start, I know Revolution will be left to the side). Hopefully by next week I'll be caught up on shows and then we can talk about them all!

I'm always up at midnight still anyway too, so New Years is no different for me.

Yep. I am usually awake until about 2am most night, but I am in bed by 10, so New Years was a little different for me.

Feel better, darling! Take it easy and take care of yourself, okay?!
lizibabes: Franklizibabes on January 20th, 2014 01:23 am (UTC)
You would think it'd let up right? But nope one thing after the other.

I'm glad your managing to do stuff, but it sucks that you feel like you are going to hurl when you do. Fingers crossed I've been keeping my food down this month. Which is good because I lost a stone and a half over Christmas.

Lots of little things make me think of you, especially are many shared shows so I often think of you even more on Tumblr and I have that on my phone so I can check in even when I'm sick in bed, just on my phone. And it's so sweet of you to be thinking about me when your sick <3

Waiting for it to start back here. I swear I'd like to move to the US just so I didn't have to wait for shows and get teased by tumblr knowing they are out already.

I'm being good and taking it easy. just on the laptop to self publish a short story on Amazon. should be up tomorrow. A twitter friend is going to be the cover model. A sexy and handsome gay fireman IKR? I have awesome friends.

Ever think of joining the dark side and getting a twitter?

You take care too, I worry. You deserve a break.

P.S using my Frank icon. Not sure if I've told you before but he has a lot of health issues. on't know how he did all that touring, still does while being sick.

I had a CT scan done the other day and my hernia has repaired itself! But...I am still having stabbing stomach pain and the CT scan turned up nothing. Good side, I don't have something terrible going on in there. Bad side, they don't know why I'm in pain. Boo.

Fingers crossed I've been keeping my food down this month. Which is good because I lost a stone and a half over Christmas.

That sounds awful. Is it all from complications of your disorder? Or from pain? Either way, you can't be getting better if you aren't even keeping food down. Here's hoping you are these days. /xxx fingers/

Lots of little things make me think of you, especially are many shared shows

Me too! Certain things come across my dash or journal and I'm like, "Oh, Lizi would love that, I wonder how she is." Or when something funny happens on one of our shows, I always think of you. (I'm all caught up on Chicago Fire now and omg, I love that Severide is the one all over Casey's ass because he KNOWS something is wrong with his boy. I do not like this storyline that has Shay and Dawson not working together though! Even if Dawson looks good in the firefighter trainee clothes).

Ever think of joining the dark side and getting a twitter?

Nope. I don't have a phone that can text, so I'd only be able to twitter from my IPad and that spends the majority of my day plugged in and charging (pull it out at about 9/10 when I get into bed and Tumblr and use the Netflix app or read fic until about 1am, by which time the battery is almost dead - Tumblr really drains it - and then charge up during the day the next day and go again). My phone is free and the service is free, paid for by my dad, so I don't complain and frankly, ugh, I don't need another blackhole to fall into. Having texting would be the downfall of me. (I recently discovered I can text from my IPad to other people who have IPads/IPhones but since my IPad is plugged in all day, I usually only use it to text my sister what I want for dinner. lol)

P.S using my Frank icon. Not sure if I've told you before but he has a lot of health issues. on't know how he did all that touring, still does while being sick.

OH! I saw this post going around Tumblr the other day that was like "You never know what a person is suffering through," and used all these celebrities with diseases and mental health situations like - This Celebrity You Love: Suffers From xxxx. And Frank was one of them and I was astounded by some of the stuff there. (also it made me think of you!). You really never can tell just by looking at a person. Even someone with visible issues like myself - just because you can see I have health problems, doesn't mean you have any idea of what's really going on under there. It was a cool post.

I'm so glad that the hernia repaired itself and you didn't have to go through something like surgery to repair it, would have probably been the last thing you need. But it's always super annoying when you have pain and they can't tell you why. Maybe its just still really tender from where it was damaged?

Over Christmas I picked up an awesome infection in my lungs which apparently EDS people are prone to, I never knew this, so at least I know why I get sick every winter. This was bad even for me though and just as it was finally clearing up I got the flu. ugh. Eating fine now though and slowly putting the weight back on, Main problem is pain right now, I keep flaring, but it could be worse.

Sometimes when I'm posting to tumblr I'm like yep. pretty sure dodger will get a kick out of this to.So I post it hoping it'll make you smile I need to steal some of my old tumblr post because I miss being able to scroll back and see them

That post sounds really interesting! I'll keep an eye out because I can't agree more with you that you really can't tell about a persons health from looking at them, and even if there is something to see, that doesn't mean you are seeing everything the person is going through.

Twitter is a time suck and something I think you need on like all your devices to keep up on your feed. I like it because when I can't sleep is the time a lot of people I know from the USA are awake and I can talk to them. Keeps me sane at 4am lol
