Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!!
I hope you’re all having a fantastic day! We’ve got the turkey in the oven here, the cranberry dressing chilling in the fridge, rolls rising on the stove, and all the rest of what we’ll need sitting out and waiting for the time when we’ll start putting it all together. We’ve got somewhere around 5 or 6 people on the way over sometime in the afternoon to share dinner with us. It’s an “Orphan Party!” All our local friends who have family too far away to go visit for the holiday were invited over to spend the day. There’s going to be card games and lots of food and it’s going to be a fantastic day! I’ve got hot cider simmering in the crock pot and cheese and crackers for munching between now and dinner.
I’m excited! It’ll make up in a big way for Monday and Tuesday of this week — I had to work through a migraine on Monday and the remnants of that headache on Tuesday. Not sure what it was that set off my headache, but it HURT, even though I took a ton of meds for it. And I couldn’t go home because there was just SO much to get done! And even more to get done on Tuesday. It was Not Fun. So when we finished everything late Tuesday, I asked if it was really going to be necessary for me to work on Wednesday, and since my boss said “no,” I stayed home yesterday — slept in, went to the chiropractor’s, picked up a few things from the store, made a cheesecake, and started getting ready for today. It would have been nasty to work yesterday and then have to do all of that today instead. So I’m really thankful for the day off yesterday. 🙂
And I’m thankful for the free turkey our friend got from work that she gave to us to use for the meal today.
I’m thankful for my wonderful husband who compliments me so well — I make a mess putting the turkey together and he cleans up the mess!
I’m thankful for all our friends who are going to come over today.
I’m thankful for the job options that I’ve been given, even though they’re giving me headaches.
And I’m thankful for all of you! I love you!!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
