Today I got to drive home to spend part of Thanksgiving break with my lovely family. The drive through the mountains was gloomy and curvy, per usual.
I decided I needed caffeine for the drive, because it is better to take pictures and drive at the same time while caffeinated. It makes you more alert.
The lady asked me if I wanted sugar added to my coffee. I asked her if it was already sweet and she said she didn't know. I decided to turn down the sugar and take my chances, and boy I am glad I did. That was the sweetest iced coffee I've ever had.... it was actually sickeningly sweet. I heard about some woman that went into a diabetic coma one time after having dunkin donuts coffee... and I can see why. I don't even have diabetes, and I was in a diabetic coma. Or maybe that was just brought on by rush hour traffic:
There is nothing I like better than sitting in a line of traffic for 3 hours. You really get to know the back of the car in front of you.
Once I got home, I had dinner, and then headed over to my Mom's house where we made gluten-free pumpkin pies and I did yoga with my sister. I forgot to take pictures of the pies, but I did remember to take a picture of my sister's pet snake.
Her name is Holly. I am usually okay with animals, but I am still not a huge fan of snakes. I'd rather have a guinea pig or something with more fur and less of an ability to strangle me. Oh, and this is my step-dad's obese cat, Chloe:
She is proud of her curves.
Tomorrow, I have a coffee date, followed by a trip to the running store to get suckered into paying too much for compression socks, and then I am having "early Thanksgiving dinner" with my grandmother. I put this in quotations because we are actually having BBQ instead of turkey. That is the kind of family I have.
