It's Thanksgiving Time
Thanksgiving is upon us! I guess you know the type of stress that brings. Getting ready for the invasion of family can be overwhelming – cleaning, planning menus, buying groceries, thawing turkeys. I don’t know what is on your menus this year but we are having turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, carrots, stuffing, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls, home made biscuits, pumpkin pie, coconut cake and red velvet cake. Before dinner we’ll have a cheese ball and a veggie tray and sausage balls with home made punch. Honestly, I am exhausted just thinking about it!! Just think how tired I would be if I actually had to do any of this.
You know it’s not me folks! We are going to Nick’s folks of course. But don’t feel sorry for his mom there should only be about 22 or 23 of us. And she is not old or anything. She won’t be 84 until next month. The daughters and daughters-in-law do help some – I’m bringing plates! MIL is amazing and seems to love doing this, not only for holidays but every Sunday also. But then again last Thanksgiving I did over hear her mutter to her husband “We live over the river and through the woods and they still found us!”
