The most pointless work day ever

That is pretty much what today has been for me.

However I HAVE managed to accomplish the following:
o Complete two expense reports
o Design and order my holiday cards
o Pay bills and balance checkbook
o Take care of some emails for my collegiate advisees
o Make a list for what I need to pack for the weekend when I get home from work today

Ok, I know only one of those things was actually work-related, but at least I managed to get something done. I will admit it is very nice for the office to be so calm and quiet...but right about now I am feeling like I want to crawl under my desk and take a nap. I mean, I probably could, who would be here to notice, right?

I shouldn't complain too much since I did get to enjoy a lovely day off yesterday and a very quiet and low-key Thanksgiving dinner with MVP. I am still grappling with whatever this sickness is, so there was a lot of tissues and Theraflu on the menu for me.

The turkeys (yes there were TWO of them) arrived from my mom

And I even made MVP a pumpkin pie

All in all, Thanksgiving 2011 felt like a success. MVP loved his pajamas, however since they were flannel it was a bit too warm to wear them yesterday. Between the unseasonable warm weather and the oven heating up the apartment, it got a little toasty in there. I even had to open a bunch of windows.

Now I have an hour and a half more to kill at work before heading home and packing up for the weekend. I'm going with MVP to the VT-UVA game tomorrow. Excited for tailgating in some more unseasonable warm weather (it's supposed to be low to mid sixties!) and just a teeny bit nervous about meeting his friends. We shall see....I do know it is keeping me from getting myself into trouble holiday shopping this weekend, so that in and of itself is a very good thing!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the holiday weekend whatever your plans may be.
