We had a very nice holiday yesterday. We slept till 10 and then eventually made our way outside for some much-needed yard work. We started the food and cleaned up. We ended up eating around 4. We actually had a much more traditional feast than we usually do. Last year we made home-made pizza, this year we decided on a ham. I spent much of the night crafting. I am in the middle of making costumes – that’s what you get when you’re married to a playwright and director I guess. I also got some stuff started for me. We watched a movie then ended up going to sleep around midnight. It was very nice.

I had a student ask what we were doing over the holiday and I told her it would just be us – as usual. She went on and on about horrible and sad that must be. I was kind of surprised. I’ve never felt that way. In the 13 years we’ve been together we’ve only Thanksgiving dinner with my family twice. The rest of the time it’s always us. We rather enjoy it. It never occurred to me that some people would view it as sad. I think a lot of people would enjoy a relaxing Thanksgiving at home – but that’s just me.

Today I need to mail some gifts out. I’ve been stalling for fear of going out into the real world. I can’t imagine how chaotic it is out there. Everyone and their dog will be out shopping and stuff. Oh well. Tis the season. We need to get the tree up today sometime too. Then tonight we are heading to see a play – I’m excited. I’m looking forward to this – two of Mark’s students are in it and I’m very proud of them.

Ok, I need to finish making costumes. I should’ve probably majored in Costume Design or something….
