very low-key today

Did not sleep last night at all.  I tried going to bed at 2:30 a.m.  I was very tired, but not sleepy.  Finally, at 5:30 or 6:00 a.m., I took some Advil and finally fell asleep around 6:30 or so.  I woke at one, had brunch and watched AWZ, then went to sleep again.  I vaguely remember Mom saying that I shouldn't sleep during the day because I wouldn't sleep at night.  I woke again at five.

Those who have been reading my last few "real life" posts will remember that Mom is sick (but on antibiotics now) and needs a knee replacement.  She saw the primary care doctor on Wednesday, and Dr. G. urged her not to put off getting a knee replacement for too long.  We'll see when Mom decides to get it done.

Anyway, Mom got the ambition to fix meatloaf with applesauce.  It's called "applesauce beefloaf," and the whole family likes it.  I don't want to start being a person who puts recipes on my LJ.  We had yams and spinach.  We didn't have any pie, but I had gotten pizzeles some time ago, and we had a couple of those.  My brother called in the afternoon, and spoke to Mom and Dad.  I called P. and Aunt P. and Uncle D. to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving.  I got to talk a bit with my cousin R., who is pregnant.  She'll be the first of that generation to have a baby.  J. really wants to have children, but he needs to finish grad school first, at the least.  I left a Happy Thanksgiving message for S.M., who I believe is in Maryland at her niece's house.

We had cider, and talked about getting pie tomorrow, when it will probably be on sale very cheaply.  I still have some eggnog left from getting it the other day, so I'll probably have some later.  The yams (sweet potatoes, really) were enormous.  Mom and I shared one, and half of one was more than enough.  I'm really quite full.

Added: At least I got all my editing done.  They got proofreaders for that job needing a fast turnaround.  I may do a line edit requiring a fast turnaround on it.  I like the author, and the story sounds cute.  It's a pretty short story, too.

Not much else here.  I'll probably re-watch this week's AWZ episodes, at least the parts with Florian and Frank, and with Roman.  I have the feeling there will be a skating-ectomy as far as the clips that are subtitled.  I think they'll continue following the Flo and Frank storyline, as they have been.  I find it ironic that the main storyline that Roman is a supporting character in is not being followed, in that a gay character is not being shown, but characters who appear to be gay are.

The Dark Years showed just about all the clips Roman was in, as a supporting character in various storylines, and occasionally with a bit of storyline himself.  Things have changed, though.  I'm grateful for the English translations I get.  As I've been posting, I really enjoy the Florian and Frank storyline, and Deniz and Roman are supporting characters in that.  I love the Wild brothers' interaction with each other, and with Deniz.  I like that Franziska and Vanessa are getting close.  They have this great Steinkamp "grrl power" energy together, and a lot in common.  I want more Vanessa and Ben plot.  They have such wonderful chemistry.  I'd love for Nadja to come back for a good visit.
