Dad and Grandpa, Thanksgiving

Dad and grandpa in their Yankee caps on Turkey Day.

I definitely fell off the normal schedule wagon. Ever since Wednesday, I have been all over the place and barely getting anything resembling normal sleep. I had that early meeting Wednesday (when Raia threw pennies at my window) and didn’t get home till late that night. Thursday I was up nice and early to cook (successfully I might add. I’ve yet to blog about my mediocre-to-crappy cooking skills) and helping Dad out with the meal. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving—everyone was healthy, happy and glad to be with each other. Can’t ask for much more than that.

Later that night (and early this morning), I went Black Friday midnight madness-ing with my boyfriend Andrew, his brother and Raia. I was disappointed Burberry didn’t open till 7, but I nabbed a few good deals, walked around with a muff (wait, what? See photo) Me and the muffand I think everyone had a nice time (there weren’t even that many crowds to fight through!). The only problem was the whole getting to sleep at 7am thing. I slept till 1:00pm today. I am a bum.

I spent the rest of today vegging out, relaxing, making innovative creations out  of my leftovers and hanging with my Mom. I feel terrible I didn’t do more job  work, but I think I needed a couple of days off from the search. I had to put things in perspective, clear my head and get myself back on track. Tomorrow is back to the grind.

Don’t feel guilty about taking a break and some time for yourself, especially during the holidays. Don’t sleep in till 1pm everyday and watch marathons of True Life (not like I did that today or anything…), but it is OK to relax once in a while, even if you are unemployed.

Till tomorrow,
C
