Thanksgiving By The Numbers

1440 miles NOT driven by me as Hunnybunny wanted to drive.

2 different hotel stays: one down, one up. HoJo's isn't as bad as it used to be. Go and price on Hotels.com. Saved us a bundle!
1 visit with a blogging buddy in Marietta, GA. Deborah is so cool!
25 cups of coffee and/or lattes during that week.
2 Older sons not with me this year....one staying at my house because I had heat, one with his dad in Tennessee.

2 turkey dinners and both were righteous. I even learned to like dressing without cornbread in it.

4 viewings of WALL-E on Hunnybunny's laptop by the Pickle on the way down.

25 or more times asked, "Are we in Florida, yet?" by the Pickle.

3 yards of Beatle fabric (You seriously didn't think I was going to make a trip and not buy fabric, did you?) purchased at Wal-Mart in Hunnybunny's hometown.

7 extra pounds of weight due to the way I ate while gone. Diet went totally out the window.

7 copies of Women's Day read cover-to-cover as Grandma Hunnybunny keeps them until I come to town.

45-15 Florida vs. Florida State, in the pouring rain, no less. Now, that was priceless!

Beth, it was fun meeting you, HB, and the Dyl Pickle (sweet boy!). I started a book blog: Bookish (http://bookish-deb.blogspot.com).

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Charleston was awesome!

Glad you had a good holiday. My brother is dating a Gators fan (she's an alum). He brought her to Thanksgiving dinner...

Hope you have recovered from your trip.

Oh, my goodness, did you go to the game? It was the worst downpour I've EVER seen at a game. If so, you are some fan! Sweet victory for you!
