Tuesday was one of the best days of my life. I got up and my uncle drove Teresa, Karen, Robby and I to a credit union in Santa Clara to finalize the loan from my new van and then over to Mobility Works to learn everything about it and drive it home. While we were at the credit union we could smell this Korean barbecue place and it smelled amazing so we decided to go back after we got the van. We finalize everything there and then drove back to the Korean barbecue place and we were not disappointed, the food was as amazing as it smelled, we ate way more than we should have but we just couldn't stop. We drove my new van to Home Depot to get a Christmas tree and then drove home. It was so nice and cozy in my new van, everybody loved it it was so excited for me. We got home and Teresa put me to bed and then decorated the tree and put everything on a timer, I can't wait to see what it looks like in the morning.
Thursday was Thanksgiving and that is always a great day. My brother, his wife and their daughter came down and spent the night Wednesday night. They got in kind of late and everybody was tired so we all went to bed. Thursday I got up and it smelled really incredible upstairs, Stanley was making baked eggs and bacon bowl and toast, it was so good. I took Robby for a long cruise because I knew there probably wouldn't be time later and he's starting to look good so I don't want him to gain any more weight. Everywhere we went it was pretty deserted. We went through the Boardwalk part of the lagoon but didn't provide the water part because it was muddy and I was afraid it was going to get stuck. We went to Depot Park, up over the bridge, down to the wharf and back and through the boardwalk and back. The weather was actually really nice and we wanted to stay out longer but also wanted to come back and visit with everyone. I was leaning back for a while in my room and my brother came down so we went across the street to see what was going on. My cousin Rich was there with his 2 little girls, they are so adorable. Mike and Laura and of course my uncle and aunt were over there. I was going to try to get a game of cribbage going but they had already played inside the front house and everybody was ready to eat. My aunt made a turkey, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, gravy and a bunch of hors d'oeuvres. My mom brought over a ham and she made some spinach and artichoke heart dish that was awesome. I ate until I couldn't stand it anymore and then I had to come home so Teresa could put me to bed and then go back and have her Thanksgiving, she was cooking for a bunch of friends and neighbors. Everybody went back over to have some pie and ice cream but I was still to full. Everyone went back over to play some cribbage and I went to sleep, there was a long day and I was really tired.
Saturday was a great day. I keep thinking that were going to run out of great days but it's just not happening. I got up and took Robby for cruise and then went to El Palomar downtown and have some tacos and then went to the movies with Heather to see Flight, what a great movie. We cruised around downtown for a little while and I got another hat, today is support your local shops so it was really crowded so we didn't shop for long. We came back and planned the menu for the rest of the week and then Heather went shopping and came back and cooked, it always smells so amazing in here when she leaves. Karen put me to bed and I kept falling asleep even a couple of times before she left so hopefully I will sleep really good tonight.
Sunday was a little cold but it's always a great day when I get up and out and about. I took Robby for a really long cruise through the lagoon and up to the lighthouse, actually a little past… until it got too cold. We went back down to the end of the wharf and back and to the end of the boardwalk and back, I was really glad to get out but I was glad to get back into my nice warm house. Heather came over for a while and then Karen came and put me to bed. Lee and Claudia, my uncle and aunt and my mom and I played cribbage… I won a dollar so it was a good game. I watched a couple of episodes of Dr. Phil and that's all I remember.
