The amount of food we have leftover from the holidays is beyond ridiculous. There are only two people in our household. Two people and a dove and some fish. Some plants, too. We can't possibly eat all of this food. I, in fact, have no desire to eat any food now. I feel like fasting for a week.
Thursday we went to my folks and had a nice day despite some atypical family drama resulting in the absence of one brother and one bit of sad health news. We brought home turkey, stuffing, mashed and sweet taties, sour kraut, gravy.
Friday we went to my in-laws' and had a nice day despite some atypical family drama resulting in the absence of one brother. Again, it was a long day of gorging and we brought home a variety of Philippino leftovers.
Saturday we had a pleasant dinner at Julio and Yo! Adrienne's, and fortunately they didn't give us any food to bring home.
Sunday we had Cha's family over again, this time to our place, to try and eliminate some more food. We got through a good chunk of the leftover goodies, but more cake and pie was added to the stockpile, alas.
All in all a good weekend. From Wednesday night until last night at 10 pm there were no students in the neighborhood--they all went home to torment their parents. Then, at precisely 10:04 last evening the ominous thump of the bass from next door resumed.
I got a lot of painting done this weekend. Only five more rooms to go and we'll be ready to list the house.
