Raise your hand if you are completely ready for Thanksgiving. Well, you better be, the day is coming up very soon. You probably have a list of 100 things you have to do before the big day, or maybe, you are keeping things rather simple this year. Either way, Thanksgiving weekend can be interesting.
Here are 10 thoughts that might go through your head during Thanksgiving:
“I hope I don’t forget anything!”
If you are traveling during Thanksgiving, packing can be stressful! Will you remember everything? What if you forget something important? Is everything charged???
“Please no delays, please no delays, please no delays”
You know you are traveling on the busiest travel day of the year. You are doing it solo this year, the husband is deployed once again, and you are just praying NOTHING gets delayed because the idea of being stuck in an airport longer than you should is terrifying.
“Crap, I forgot the green beans!”
It’s Wednesday night, you are about to go to bed, and you remember you FORGOT THE GREEN BEANS! Crap, go to the store and battle the crowds? Or not make green bean casserole?
“Do I remember how to make a turkey?”
Let’s face it, you only cook a turkey once a year. Do you still remember how to do it? Is it just like riding a bike?
“Maybe we should order a meal?”
As you crawl out of bed at 6 am to get started with your day of cooking, you wonder if you should have just ordered a meal. Cracker Barrel has a good deal, don’t they?
“What the heck is he going to eat?”
If you have a picky kid, you know Thanksgiving is always a challenge. Here is a roll kid, have fun not enjoying the best meal of the year.
“Time with family!”
This could be good, this could be bad. Anytime the whole family gets together there is some kind of drama, but hey, at least we all get to be together, right?
“I really just want to eat”
Cooking is done, and you just want to gobble up that yummy meal you helped make. Or made by yourself, whatever.
“I’m not doing the dishes!”
The rule is, if you cooked the turkey, you don’t have to do the dishes. At least in our house 🙂
“Time to put up the tree?”
“Mom, can we put the tree up? Mom, can we put the tree up? Mom, can we put the tree up?” The Christmas season has arrived, the holidays are in full swing, time to get started on all your Christmas shopping! Have fun!!!
However you are spending Thanksgiving, I hope you have a good one, filled with fun, good food, and family and friends 🙂
