It was a busy weekend. After school thursday I mixed up these burgers my sister recommended and took them over to Doug's house for dinner and to spend some time with him I didn't try them with the sauce they recommended, and they were pretty tasty, but I still love my favorite veggie burgers most of all. Friday Jill and I had friends over for our friend Josh's welcome back to the USA/birthday/and you're leaving again soon party. Jill made tacos with all the delicious fixings, I made chocolate cupcakes with pb frosting. We ate, talked, and played Catchphrase. The girls won 2 in a row. I got 2 tricky words, mosey and flotsam. The girls guessed mosey from me saying "I'm just gonna ___ on down the street", but no one remembered that Flotsam was the other little eel pet of Ursula the Sea Witch. So for anyone's future reference, should you find yourself staring at it in a game of Catchphrase, the real definitions are: mosey - verb - to wander or shuffle about leisurely; stroll; saunter. flotsam - noun - 1. the part of the wreckage of a ship and its cargo found floating on the water. 2. material or refuse floating on water. 3. useless or unimportant items; odds and ends. 4. a vagrant, penniless population: the flotsam of the city slums in medieval Europe. (I like that definition) and 5. Ursula the Sea Witch's pet eel. Just kidding. Saturday I worked. But the good part of working on Saturday is one nice doctor always brings the nurses cookies and grapes. Mmmmm. I was crying at work because this old woman fell on the ice, she had been living completely independently a few days ago and one fall and she broke her knee and shoulder, is confused, and now she'll probably die of sepsis. It's terrible. Her daughter was with her and she was crying and singing to her and I just could not take it! I hope my parents live a long time!!! Saturday evening Doug and I went to his friend's baby shower. We had a good time and the food was tasty. His friend had bought too much extra stuff but she didn't want to return it so Doug was filling bags with stuff to take home. What he needs 5lbs of croutons for I do not know! I made him share some of the boxes of Ritz crackers with other people, he was trying to take 3 boxes, haha. Sunday I took my parents to the airport. Then came back to their house, did laundry, studied and raided their fridge. I found Dad's leftover waffles in the freezer, mmmm My grandpa posted this pic of them on facebook, they went to Florida for a month but are coming home soon and I hope to visit them soon. I used to live with them, and I miss seeing them! She fell last Christmas and broke her hip, and has lost a lot of memory over the past few years, but otherwise they are doing good. Pretty dang good actually for 92. I love seeing my grandpa take care of her, in several of the pictures of them, they were holding hands. awwwwww! Today I had class and made these for meals this week. My other favorite, black bean butternut squash burritos. So good every time. I was sent a new credit card in the mail today because of that Target hack thing. Good thing they are protecting me, but I had to waste 40 minutes updating the automatic things and trying to remember all these different rarely used log ins and passwords. So now, a little time to study and then off to bookclub! This month we read Gone Girl, it was an intense read and I'm very interested to hear what my girl's have to say about it!
