Turkey-free week

What I've spent the past two days:

We spent Thursday morning watching the parade from Peanut's Times Square office--it was great! (I'll try to post pictures later). I spent $12.00 on donuts for the "small" group of people we expected to watch the parade with. Turned out to be a dozen out of town relatives of Peanut's newest coworker, complete with three kids under the age of three. The donuts were a big hit.

After the parade, we stopped by the store to pick up the traditional Thanksgiving sides we wanted to make ($5 each). We didn't do a big Thanksgiving meal with turkey or anything, and we enjoyed our meal very much anyway.

Today, I went to the eye doctor and had my first real consultation for Lasik. I liked the doctor a lot, was told I'm an excellent candidate...and booked my surgery appointment! It will cost $3,960, or $1,980 per eye (as Peanut said, "Good thing I've only got two!") which I feel is definitely reasonable. My appointment is at the beginning of January so in five weeks I will be eyeglasses-less for the first time in more than 20 years. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!

After that, I came home and ate leftovers. We're going to run to the grocery store for tomato soup and make that with grilled cheese sandwiches, and I might do some online Christmas shopping, but otherwise, we are planning a quiet weekend in, just the way I like it.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone--this is turning out to be one of my favorites ever.
