Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully all of you are going to spend a few days that you actually want to be with, but if not, it’s still good to reconnect with people, even if the last few years have been strained.
And worst comes to worst, hide in the bathroom, and post something in Qt3.
Oddly enough, my father-in-law is also having a health scare right now so my wife took a red-eye back to NJ last night to help out, so it’s just me and the kids, plus my mother who is visiting. Going to be weird.
Anyway, happy Thanksgiving to the Americans and happy Thursday to everyone else!
So this is my family’s first holiday away from Chicago. So it is a brave new world for us. But we are having dinner with another family from my work, and everyone is looking forward to it. Right now the pumpkin cookies are baking and the stuffing is cooking. We leave in 3 hours.
It’s a big change for them, but I am quite thankful they are doing it with me. Last year I ate spaghetti and watched Netflix by myself, as they were not in Portland with me. So if anything else this is a year to be thankful for that.
Hope everyone’s health scares turn out to be just scares! My mother-in-law broke her pelvis a few weeks ago but other than that, things have gone relatively well health-wise.
Very thankful to be spending Thanksgiving with 9 people of sane mind and belief. I know that won’t be the case for everyone so best of luck to those stuck on the front lines!
We’re hosting for the 4th year in a row but at our new house so it’ll be a little different. And it’s been raining all day so that’s put a bit of a crimp in our plans to have games, etc, out in the refurbished garage.
