We Made It!
Well, I almost made it through an overnighter with Jilly Beans without doing any major damage. I did almost everything right, I gave her the meds on time, was able to change her diapers without her raising too much fuss because I was taking too long, and we made it to bed at a decent time and slept the night through. The only little problem we encountered was when she went into Zach's room to play and closed the door. The same door that, unknown to me, Zach had mostly disassembled the door knob on, by working on it with a screw driver. I knew the doorknob was shakey and rattled a bit, but I did NOT know that if you closed it, it COULD NOT be opened from the hallway.
THAT caused a major moment of panic, I swear. (And swear I did).
I finally was able to take a screw driver and slide it between the door frame and the lock thingy and pop the door open but I had a back-up plan to try to climb through the window if that had failed.
Jillian was patiently sitting in the floor playing with Zach's Yugio cards when I got in. My heart beat returned to normal after about a half hour or so.
I hope Jerri will trust me with her babies again.
Since only Zach, James, and I will have a quick lunch here tomorrow before he goes hunting and Zach and I go to Jerri's, our menu is not as large as it's been in past years. Jerri, Trish, and Jami have been cooking up a storm over at Jerri's so I'll let you know what they had after I've sampled some of it.
Turkey Breast (she's all done and cooling so she can spend the night in the fridge, I'll warm her before lunch tomorrow).
Ham (large, bone in, paper wrapped, cured ham, the only kind I really, really, like)
Mashed taters and gravy
Pumpkin and coconut cream pies
Happy Turkey Day!!
