Re: Happy Thanksgiving B2B's!

Well if you thought my day way going too well....I forgot about my toastie (it's ok. it was on a low temp so it's not burnt) and my bread caved in at the top.

They then shared a meal to say thank you or something of the sort. Feel free to correct me. The friends is in quotes because we probably killed off or drove away our friends very quickly after that.
I am a little more positive about this weekend now, amazing what a few hours alone and being able to sit in a comfortable chair will do for a gal. After a week of kitchen chairs or bed being my only option.
I totally spaced packing so I have to do that this morning, and bake a pie for SIL. And do chores, and clean up the house in case people stop by.
To understand it right then I need to think of it as a celebration of that time and not think about what happened next. Is that how it's done?

Yes. It has now basically turned into a time to be with your family and overeat. If done the right way you also reflect on what you are thankful for, even though you may want to stick a fork in your MIL's eye simultaneously.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving B2B's!

Morning mamas. We had a rough night. Rosie came down the stairs right before I was about to go to bed covered in vomit. I think it was just a reaction to tourist food and not an actual illness, as she had no other symptoms. But it means T-day dinner will be at dinnertime instead of lunch or mid-afternoon which kind of throws a monkey wrench in things. But like Jess said, I am lucky it is just the five of us this year, especially since the kids are not big into the foods that are typically associated with T-day dinner.

Love your dinner setup Janine. I wish we were having duck, LOL. And homemade pies.

Boo on bad work dreams Mel. Did I ever tell the story, when I used to work at a restaurant training store, how I regularly ran shifts in my sleep? And would talk about it in my sleep? And DH would have fun and talk back to me, and one day told me that my dishwasher quit and no food delivery was coming that day?

Saw the pix on FB, Jess and thought, wow, that looks like my house. Can't wait to see it with the new furniture.

I am contemplating going to Meijers today. There's not really anything I need, and the BF (other than the iPod deals) are not stellar, but I may just need to get out of the house today. DH opened a new Wii game we had bought for Xmas last year, but decided to hold off on due to the quantity of extended family gifts, so they are all glued to that right now.
