Today was our Thanksgiving. Turkey and family and wobbly card tables full of laughter and a day of togetherness.
And I was thankful.
Thankful that we were all able to be together. That our drive home tomorrow won’t suck our will to live by hour nine. That Tom made his killer stuffing and it was gluten free and there is a lot to take home with us.
After pie we had Christmas.
And there were shrieks of glee, a wrapping paper storm, and Legos everywhere.
Thanksmas is a time to be thankful, to give, to combine holidays because the alternative is to not spend them together. And it works.
Tomorrow morning we return home, to generalized mayhem and life sped up for the holidays. I have no idea where all our Christmas decorations are, and even if I want to pull them out. Thinking Christmas cards this year may be President’s Day cards.
It was a good weekend, one sorely needed away from ourselves at home.
Back to it tomorrow.
