I hope everyone had a good Turkey Day. We had a lovely one - though no turkey was involved. Since I'm not eating, Julian doesn't like turkey and the triplets will eat anything, I decided that roasting a couple chickens was just as good. And from what I hear - I was right.

After an emergency root canal yesterday morning, I came home early from work and then slept for almost 20 hours. Eventually I dragged myself upright and started cooking - stuffing, orange-cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, and roast chickens. Seth bought a pecan pie and his cousin brought us a lovely pumpkin pie - which didn't get eaten yet, but we'll have it for Shabbos.

Julian, of course, wouldn't eat anything but the chicken - but I had decided that I was absolutely NOT going to be a short order cook today, and he could eat what I was making or not. Abigail had seconds, thirds, and I think fourth servings of asparagus. Usually Sam loves asparagus, too - but today, Abby had it all.

I'm absolutely exhausted now, and it's not even 7 o'clock. The triplets are asleep - do you think I can manage to convince Julian that it's bedtime an hour early? Hrm.

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely day. Personally, I'm looking forward to next year!

I hope that Julian was cooperative, but bedtime stories can also be read in Ima's bed. Please try to listen to your body and rest as much as you can. It is a contrary skill for an overachiever, but if you see it as a challenge and realize that life does go on without all the trimmings, you get to enjoy the rewards.

We had to cancel plans to go to Osewalrus' family for the weekend as John has some neck pain. He seldom complains, so we made an appt. to see the doctor early Monday morning. Meanwhile massage, a heating pad, rest and Tylenol in the comfort of his home seems to be helping.

We were so happy to hear the news about the baby to come. May it be at a shaar tovah.

Lots of love, and Shabbat Shalom.
