Oh dear, there is a reason why this kind of massive meal is only done a few times a year. Too.Much.Food. I traveled to Nashville to have Thanksgiving with the Queen and the Royal Court. Between us there were two turkeys (one roasted, one fried), mashed potatoes (ten lb bag), sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, squash casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls, gravy, dressing, stuffing and six pies. Umm yeah, there was a lot of food.
As I was driving here yesterday I was reminded about something I said a few years back. I have described my relationship with Bubba as trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. And that never works. I am thankful that we have formed a friendship and that we see each other as siblings now.
But, I was thinking about that description and then realized that what I have now with Chandler is nothing like that. It’s easy, comfortable, fun and we can talk to each other. Of course he is really into being right, at all times. Puleeze. You have yet to see the K family stubborn streak come out but if you never see that you will probably be quite happy.
And while I am with my Nashville family for this holiday, it is nice to know that he will be there when I get back. I am enjoying my time catching up with friends whom I love as family. I have cooked to the point where I am tired to the bone and for my mom, I did almost all of the dishes. Yes, I cleaned and nobody asked me to rewash anything.
Tomorrow I will be hitting the sales, nothing in particular, but it is a sport and one that makes me quite happy. I have been through the paper, checking out the sales and have a plan set for my attack. A nap will be on the agenda tomorrow as well as spending time with my BFF Stacey and her husband. I will also be cooking again, this time for them along with Sonia and her husband. I am super excited to see them and feel like this trip is way too short.
But for now, I am taking it all in, spending time with some of best adopted family members I could ever have. I am thankful for them, my parents and to the guy who managed to get me to change my Facebook location, that is kind of a big deal.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, I think it is time to take another nap. . .
