Quick Thanksgiving Wrap Up

Title says it all.  After a LONG (seems longer than 4 days) weekend of too much food, too much beer, not enough sleep, and zero productivity, I’ve got to get back on the rails this morning.  I’m thinking a little recap might get me in a good frame of mind.

The LONG (did I mention it seemed longer than 4 days) weekend was fantastic.  I got to hang out with family and catch up with friends that I don’t get to see as often as I’d like.  Bouncing around and couch surfing during the holidays is an awesome way to see everyone in their natural habitat.  Being the last un-attached guy in my group of friends, this makes me feel like Jane Goodall and always reminds me of why I am still single.  I’m glad all my friends are happy, but that is just not the life for me.  The wives, the kids, the in-laws, and all the recreational responsibilityes that come along with those things would be more than I could handle.  I DO love all my friends kids and they always have a big smile for me when they find me crashed among their toys on those random mornings.  The wives, on the other hand, will usually tolerate it.  I try to buy or cook breakfast in an attempt to earn my keep.

The weather was great and allowed for a couple of rounds of golf.  One comeback from 8 pts down to force a tie in a low ball / low total team match and the other was a lazy, no score keeping round with my dad and his buddy while listening to football on the radio.  More than likely the last days on the course of 2011.

I’m scared to even see how much money I spent b/c I know I have nothing to show it for but wallet full of receipts.  High test IPAs and other asset free spending add up in a hurry.

My workout this afternoon is going to be brutal and I’m sure and work will drag for another six hours until I can can even get that far. But, that is all for the negatives this morning.  I couldn’t ask for a better time and I look forward to doing again in a month.  Until then, I’ve got to “do work”.  Plenty of things to handle before then.
