A small Thanksgiving instead....

It's another day and another day to get my butt on my treadmill. Okay, so yeah, I'm sitting here blogging, which make it you guys' fault if I don't get my workout on.

I was planning on having a nice large family Thanksgiving this year, but it seems that it's all falling in the tiolet. It doesn't look like it'll be that great because NO ONE IS COMING! I invited the in-laws. They haven't ever been to my house for a holiday and I was hoping that I could finally get them together with some of my family.

We've been married 10 years and our families have never even met. Sad, huh? Well that's a story for another day.

So I wanted to get us all together for Thanksgiving. My family if now spread out, so I knew everyone wouldn't make it.

My mom is in Connecticut and my sister is in AIT (Aiforce training) in Mississippi. Well, my sister was trying to get here, but couldn't get a cheap ticket on short notice. Mom has to work the day after and simply couldn't make it.

Then my Aunt, who helps me cook at all of our family event, decided she didn't want to come. For lots of reason, but none good enough to bail out on family.

My dad is debating on going to Michigan to see his mom, and the in-laws have yet to decide if they all want to make a 4 hour drive. Understandable.

So, from what it looks like, it will be just us and maybe my brother who will drive from Savannah. That's fine and dandy I guess. I won't have to cook as much. The kids will be disappointed because they were looking forward to having a holiday with a lot of family like they see in the movies. Maybe next year I'll just plan to visit family instead of having people come visit me. At least then I won't have to worry about clean up!

Sorry to hear that your family isn't going to be at the Thanksgiving table this year, but what a great opportunity for you to do something special just for your family. Try not to look at this as a loss, but a gain to focus on the people who are right there with you... maybe your kids can make a special dessert with you--they'll be grateful for that mommy time and the memories... maybe you can eat by candlelight and serve something totally unexpected and play Stevie Wonder songs and go outside afterward and take a family walk together--gaze at the stars... you realize pretty quickly when you focus on one another that there's a lot to be grateful for...

Head up, my love. It'll be a fine dinner, no matter who's there--or isn't.

wow, I cant imagine what it would be like to just have my immediate family...

I say... next year, visit away and you wont have to go crazy cleaning and cooking.

Can you believe my own mother chooses to have Thanksgiving every year with her sister instead of with her only daughter and grandkids? Yup.

I love being around lots and lots of family at Thanksgiving...so does hubby...that must be why he is on a baby kick!
