The end of the tunnel FINALLY

I am so happy that it is finally Wednesday. To be honest, when I was slammed with work yesterday and Monday, I was a little bitter about being so busy and having to work so late while visiting my parents, and it kind of seemed like it would never end.

But! Well, now it's Wednesday, my workload has lifted ever so slightly, and the light at the end of the tunnel looms, looking beautiful and tantalizing and four days long. Four whole days! I can hardly get over it.

Though, I still can't believe it hasn't even quite been a week since we dropped Montana off to board. Are we really not even halfway there yet? Because it feels like several years have gone by since I've seen her. And I don't appreciate that.

Of course, I still have to work today. But it won't be the same kind of desperate, clawing-my-way-out-of-the-madness type of work with one thing after another after another and no time to stop for lunch. Or breakfast. So, I think I'll be able to survive it.

And then: tomorrow. Turkey! And stuffing (though I'm not sure how well that will go down with my lap-band)! And pie!

Actually... I'm not sure we're having pie. My mom said something about a chocolate-orange souffle? And there is definitely some mochi ice cream in the freezer. But hey, my dad is British and my husband is German, so why not celebrate this American holiday with some French and Japanese desserts, right?

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
