preparation

we’re back in town and we’re pretty sure that we have an apartment. more details when everything is confirmed. the airport was just starting to get crazy this morning when we got there at 5AM. the longest wait i’ve literally ever had to check a single piece of luggage onto a plane.

the rest of the day was spent getting ready for thanksgiving. 2 trips to the grocery, a trip to the liquor store, and a pizza delivery later i think things are in order for the most part. the majority of the evening was spent at jami & vicky‘s house making pies and arrangements for tomorrow. it appears as if the menu will be something close to the following:

Starters
Spinach and Yogurt dip w/ toasted pita
Assorted Cheese and Crackers
