Wow, has the time flown by this year! I feel like I’ve said that about a hundred times recently, but no doubt it’s true. I blinked and then Thanksgiving appeared and smacked me up side the head.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving. Turkey day, as my dad calls it, is one of my very favorite holidays. Okay, I like them all, and each for a different reason, but for Thanksgiving I think the reason is tradition. And that’s kind of odd this year because there’s not a lot of tradition happening this time around.
I’m working both Thursday and Friday night in the real world and I’m okay with that. My husband’s family is having dinner on Friday and mine on Saturday. My husband doesn’t want turkey and all the fixings, he wants nachos and my son happily agrees with him. And I figure that’s okay because I’ll gorge on all sorts of to-die-for yummies at my parents house. I’d rather make sure my family is happy and well fed than spend all day cooking a meal they aren’t all that excited about.
But the one thing that is a must, no matter what day we have our Thanksgiving dinner is that we will all be together. For us it doesn’t matter if we have dinner on Monday, Thursday or sometime next month, as long as we can all be there together. And we’re just as happy eating nachos as we are turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie.
So to cap off this long-winded ramble, I hope that you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving and are able to spend time with the ones you love. It doesn’t matter if it’s your family, friends, coworkers, pets, neighbors or if you just give your waitress/waiter a big smile and a friendly minute, have a very Happy Thanksgiving, from my wacky family to yours.
