This year my mom has to do it all and has been whining for at least a month about it. I'll spend the morning talking on the phone with my family and a few friends and then off to work. Being alone away from home during a holiday that I love makes me want to cry.......

If you weren't working, I'd offer to have you down to Sierra Vista with us but.. see above post

I'm putting the Chihuahua and a bunch of food and wine in the car, and driving up to Denver tomorrow to spend a few days with my best friend and his boyfriend, and a few other friends. My family is back east, gas is cheap, and I love a road trip.

This evening we're doing an ingredients roll call and compiling a list of the odds and ends we still need to get, that we'll be picking up in the morning. Tomorrow afternoon/evening will be home to cleaning up and preparing desserts. Thursday morning is the parade. I'll be spending a couple hours with my dad in the midday hours and then it's time for dinner here at my new place.

spending the day with my husband's family, which will probably just mean food, football and me falling asleep on a couch while my mother-in-law and aunts figure out where they're going for "Black Friday" shopping.

I'm going to my sister's tomorrow afternoon and spending Thanksgiving with them. The arrangement is that she and her husband make the dinner, and I bring along some really good wine.

When talking to her on the phone today, my sister told her kids that "Uncle Adam is coming tomorrow afternoon!" I heard squeals of joy (I hope ) in the background. Thank God I've been getting in shape... those two are a handful!

I braved the crowds at the grocery store this afternoon and bought a turkey breast and all the usual Thanksgiving fixin's so I'll be cooking and will see if I have company or not. I have to make my own pumpkin pie though because all the frozen pumpkin pies were gone. I'm looking forward to a nice Thanksgiving, and left overs

Going to my husband's grandmother's house to spend the day with his family, who are much more fun than mine.

Just need to head out to the grocery store to get a couple of ingredient for my dishes. Oh boy I can't wait.

My son decided to come over tonite and make corned beef and cabbage pizza as our makeshift "Thanksgiving" since his "family" will be arriving sometime tomorrow from their drive across country and their big move to San Diego. His son will finally be here with him and I will finally get to meet the little guy this weekend sometime!
