Lots of Turkey

So, did everyone eat as much turkey today as I did? OMG, dinner was so flippin' good. I don't know if it's because I didn't have to spend the day preparing it or what, but it was GOOD. We went to Larry's sister Marilyn's house. (Thanks for the great dinner, Marilyn and Don.) It was a nice relaxing day. Jared played pool with Uncle Don and Grandpa, and Jared got (in his own words) "his butt beat". He had fun playing them though. Emily made a great apple pie to take over. She is a good cook for only being 13 years old. She is actually thinking of going to school for it. I'm sure she will change her mind about 100 times before she gets out of high school. I know I did when I was her age.

The rest of the weekend will be spent seeing family. Tomorrow we are off to see my Aunt Diana and Uncle Tony. He isn't doing well these days, so we want to spend a little time with him for the holiday. Saturday we are off to Louisville to see cousins in from Virginia and other family. Family is very important to us.

Well, I'm off to watch Grey's Anatomy for the next 2 hours...who doesn't like to watch McDreamy for that long!?
I will post again soon.

What's in a name?

So, it all began with wanting to write my own blog. All of my cool friends are doing it! Anyway, I could not come up with a name that I liked, so I called my friend, notyouraveragejenn, and asked her if she could help since she can sometimes be quite witty. She came up it goes..."Chicken and Biscuits", "Lime Green and Navy", "Cheese and Rice"...what the heck? At first I thought about it, but then I came to my senses. I really wanted to use the word pajamas in my name since that seems to be my wardrobe most days since I lost my job 3 weeks ago. My 13 year old daughter and 12 year old son thought the name "Just another day in pajamas" as STUPID. So i settled on "life according to blee". Well, this blog is obviously about me and the things happening in my life, so it only made sense. Now you ask were I got "blee", well from one of my besties, absolutelyfelicious. It's actually the my first initial and middle name put together. Pretty creative, huh?

So, this is my first post...with many more to come. I just hope I can be as funny as my cool friends!
