I have been trying to plan our Thanksgiving dinner and I’m not having a good time.
First, this will be the first Thanksgiving in about four years that will be at my house. Those last years few years we gathered at my Mom’s condo, because it was too hard to get her out of the house. But, now with her gone, our first holiday without her, it will be sad for all of us.
And I am faced with problems of logistics.
My college son will be home on Tuesday evening and stay through Friday afternoon.
My older son has to work his daytime job on Wednesday until about 6 PM, come home, gear up and go the fire department at 8PM and work 36 hours straight until Friday at 8 AM.
I don’t know which day to cook. I’m also thinking about getting one of those big giant Perdue Roasters (Chicken) and serve that, instead of a 78 lb turkey. That is what they have left when I finally go to the store to get the bird. Plus I always throw out so much food.
It’s really not the day that we celebrate, it’s just that we are all together, at the same time. We will work it out for sure. (I’ve joked that I am a terrible cook….but I can make a mean Thanksgiving Dinner!!)
What are you my Dear readers doing? Any major problems that you need to contend with? I just hope I feel well enough to get out of bed. I have missed a few Holiday festivities because of my illness. BAH HUMBUG!
