I'm too tired to write out a proper Thanksgiving post or to search for a cute little cartoon, or anything like that. We are having thirty people for dinner tomorrow. Do you have any idea how much food that is? How many tables and chairs to set up? How much stuff you have to clean? Add to that the fact that fall allergies are bugging me, I twisted my ankle a bit last night (note to self: make sure your foot is awake before you get up and walk around on it), and that I am going through some sort of crafty withdrawal (apparently it's my stress reliever, go figure). I've been quite beastly this week, and I do apologize to anyone who has had to deal with me and found it most unpleasant. Hopefully it's all back to normal soon (or whatever passes for normal, anyway).
The living room becomes the dining room, the dining room becomes the living room, the kitchen becomes a hotbed of activity.
But it wouldn't be Thanksgiving in Blogville without listing what you're thankful for, so here goes:
- I'm thankful that when my mom was showing me how to make the turkey tonight that she did the part where you stick your hand inside.
- I'm thankful that my sissie made some yummy guacamole tonight.
- I'm thankful that my other sissie said I could tell people she's going to be a mommy. I'm very excited--I'm a marvelous auntie :)
- I'm thankful that, even though this year had its trials and its not-so-thrilling moments, they were far outnumbered by the good times and the laughs.
- I'm thankful that you stop by and put up with me, comment, email, and just generally make me smile.
I hope you have a joyous day, spent in a way that feeds your soul as well as your tummy. I hope you don't end up in jail for murdering that annoying cousin or in-law who sticks his fingers directly into the stuffing/mashed potatoes/etc. I hope that you embrace the fact that everything is calorie-free on Thanksgiving. And I hope you get out of dish duty. See you on the flip side with regularly scheduled programming :)
