Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all

mulch52's picture

Time for a new Hearth thread.  I've been hearing so many folks obsessing about T-giving (House clean enough?  Will there be unpleasantness?  Will [insert name of obnoxious relative here] pitch a fit about [insert topic here]?) that I thought it might be nice to remember stuff for which we're thankful.   
Oh, and for those of you hosting, if anyone gets out of line, you should sit down, and require the out-of-liner to wait on you hand & foot.

Mulch,


I give thanks that my Mom and her two sisters are still able to be together on Thanksgiving day. One of them may say something about ancient history that shouldn't be said, but my ears close up at that point. I usually find a way to stear the conversation elsewhere. I am very happy they are all rather healthy and that they will have a good time for the majority of the visit!


 


Happy Thanksgiving House Chatterers!

And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you!

We're having my in-laws, a totally low stress operation. No, really. I love my in-laws. On the other hand, my house is a disaster, nothing is prepared that needs the oven (pies and such), and I work today. So, I will stress myself anyway.

I am extremely thankful that I have such silly things to stress about - my family is healthy, we have shelter, I have a job, and plenty of food - so I don't have to stress about anything real.

I give thanks for my marriage, which just gets better and better, and I give thanks that my dad has a sweetheart, because he deserves to be happy again.


And I give thanks that my last class is in three weeks and my last exam is in four weeks and I will finally have my degree!

Hey, I missed this.   I'm so glad to hear it.  You're right, he does deserve to be happy!  :-)

He's not keeping it a secret, but he's not announcing it either.  He does tend to get a little bubbly when he talks to me and my sister about it, though.

That is wonderful news. I know I love seeing my mother get bubbly about her (relatively) new SO.

I'm pretty sure he reads this forum from time to time.  He'll be pleased with your good wishes.

Ah, now I know who TGF is!  Good to know Dad made the trip safely.  Are you going to take Azul back to the Taunton Campus to meet the staff?
