…families drawing near…yuletide by the fireside–wait, wrong holiday.
candace and i are going to see my family in south louisiana for thanksgiving. i can’t wait to have time off. since we’re on the subject of work and time off–i think it’s ridiculous that where i work doesn’t give you off until noon the day before thanksgiving. so much for the people who want to get on the road early and travel. needless to say, i used some of my vacation time and asked off the whole day so that we can leave really early.
so, it’ll be nice to relax for three solid days before driving back. my mom called me last night and told that she’s doing fried shrimp one day. i can’t wait. that’s actually one thing about new orleans that i miss–not having good seafood.
