Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy thanksgiving to everyone! We will have 17 people here today to feed and I am doing all of the cooking. I made cookies, a sweet potato casserole, tea, pumpkin pie and the turkey yesterday. Well - Joe cooked the turkey. I just put on the beans. Now all that is left is banana pudding, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, dressing, gravy and a pineapple casserole. I think that is all lol. Lunch is at noon this year. The good news is all the family will be gone by around 4 so I was hoping to play poker after that. But now we have invited the neighbors and they might still be here so I will have to wait and see.

Tomorrow - big shopping day for me! This is the first year in ages that I have not had to work after Thanksgiving. The sales start at 4am - not sure I will get out quite that early - but probably will by 5:30 or 6.

Discouraging Month

November has not been pretty. I seem to lose no matter what I do.

I tried to get Pokertracker working again today and it was a nightmare. I ended up with a twisted ankle - and pokertracker killed my computer. Luckily I have 6 days left on the warranty.

But now I am stuck playing on the laptop for at least a week. I hate playing poker on a laptop. I can never get my bets made fast enough and end up timing out or being forced to make a quick minimum raise just to get a raise in. I like using a mouse. I have tried using one with the laptop but laptops don't like mice much lol.

And as much as I love this laptop - the delete button is the same as the period. So when I try to delete it just types periods most of the time. So I have to backspace instead of delete. Don't know why HP did that - you would think they would be smarter. Or maybe there is some secret to the delete button. I can't figure it out.

Travels All Done!

I made it through the jetlag study in France. It was tough!!!! I was sleep deprived and starved -but today when I received my check for $2710 it was all worth it.

I have no more trips planned for this year so hopefully I can play more poker now. I am back to waffling between ring and tournaments. I am not doing great at either.
