Gobble Gobble retired, enter the Ho Ho Ho.  It is unbelievable how close Christmas and our move is!  We honored Thanksgiving well before moving into Christmas mode.  Dustin and I hosted my family at the house.  I spent hours in the kitchen and Dustin spent a few hours tending the grill.  My mom also had to help with the noodles and the pies, two things I just don’t want to do yet.  Dustin made another delicious smoked turkey, and my oven turkey was lip smacking good!  Our whole feast was scrumptious, and it was nice to spend time with my family.  Dustin’s dad, his brother and sister-in-law came to visit as well.  The dogs enjoyed all the attention; so much so that they wore themselves out and slept all day on Friday.  We weren’t too far behind them on the sleeping.  Dustin and I had a veg out day, and it was grand.  Actually, we had almost an entire weekend of doing nothing and it was absolutely fabulous.  We’ve been so busy, that it was nice to just sit down and get reacquainted.

Today, it is back to the daily grind.  Boo!  The last couple of weeks of the semester are going to be a challenge, especially since we are trying to line up a place to live.  Adding another morsel to our already full plate, our housing plans fell through.  The couple with whom we were going to house share disappeared.  They seemed so eager for us to move in, and then they vanished, never to return a call again.  Alas, back to the drawing board.  Another trip to Fort Collins is on the books for December 10-12.  Hopefully, we can shore up something then since we are moving the first weekend of January!  Egads!  Life isn’t fun unless it is challenging right?

Enough of the Dustin and Steph update, it is time for the news.
