Re: Today Doesn't Even Feel Like Thanksgiving

@Anonymous032819 What this year has brought all of us is a huge awakening to the things we value: family, animals, health, nature, faith and our precious earth. Its been a tough and sometimes shocking lesson, but here we are, most of us somehow finding our gratitude for our lives, our memories. Don't you think we are all stronger? Could this be life's lesson, to find your strength and gratitude in times of sorrow? I pray for everyone here, and everyone everywhere. God Bless you all.

@furbabylover  I would certainly, after this year, add toilet paper to the things we have learned to value!

My brother and I are both sad we cannot share a meal together, too many risks.

 

Edited to add my hubby and I are sharing a catered meal, I am recovering from hip replacement so we are happy that we are together 

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

Re: Today Doesn't Even Feel Like Thanksgiving

One of the longest days ever.

 

I really, really don't care for holidays anymore.  The older I get, the less I like them. 

I looked at the clock a few minutes ago and almost gasped.  It was only 5:30.  I feel like this day will never end. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Re: Today Doesn't Even Feel Like Thanksgiving

It does feel different from most holidays in the past, just my husband and I, but life goes on and I am grateful for our health and the hope of better days ahead by spring/summer of 2021.

 

DS and DIL are by themselves as they work in health care and have had considerable covid exposure. We chatted early this am and I told them we would have Thanksgiving in July! 

 

I made a turkey breast, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce and oven roasted butternut squash. Also had a glass of wine and a nap.lol. We’ll get through this. Blessings to all.

Re: Today Doesn't Even Feel Like Thanksgiving

I was happy with our day today. It was at home by ourselves. Usually it's an hour and a half drive, chaotic, no nice table settings, but great family. I had my nice fall dishes on the table,good food except for the 24 pound Turkey which was a bit of a disaster. Otherwise it was great.

I'm so less stressed this year.  I always have out of state guests so there is the extra cleaning, towels, changing sheets on all the beds, on and on.  Then there's all the cooking including the evening dinner and breakfast in the morning.  Of course I miss them but for this year it is just the two of us and I'm enjoying my freedom.


@Biftu  Did you wear something LOGO today?

It is not about the turkey.
