One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Not only did we get sent home with a whole pie, a whole pumpkin roll, and a dozen farm-fresh eggs, but my mom made one of my grandma’s soups and had plenty left, so we all headed back over Sunday for a second feast.
This, of course, also meant plenty of quality Seger time.
We also ended up heading out to my aunt and uncle’s for a bit. Originally, Paul wanted to lie down in my parents’ guest bedroom and take a nap, but my wedding dress was on the bed, in need of a new button on the bustle and waiting to be taken to my aunt’s consignment shop. So we figured we’d just head out and take it, especially when my mom heard my cousin’s baby was over, and Paul could have his nap and the dress would be delivered. But Paul loves babies, so then he decided to come, too.
We ended up there for a little bit, mostly just lounging around. We got my wedding dress, plus my mom’s dresses from both mine and my brother’s weddings taken care of, and then we visited with the baby. My aunt and uncle had to head out to my cousin Nolan’s place while Adam’s wife, Ashley, was asleep upstairs after coming off night shift, so we said we’d just sit with the baby until Ashley woke up. And so we essentially spent maybe an hour or so, maybe not quite, taking turns holding and trying to entertain the baby.
When we left, Paul was naturally still tired, so he did end up taking that nap, while I just kind of sat around with the puppy and my parents for about another hour.
And that’s how we ruined our plans to go to the gym for the second time in a weekend.
