I hope all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had or are still having a nice time with family, extended family or friends. Many celebrations take all day to prepare and plan, getting up early to dress the turkey; to those not familiar with the term, that means preparing it for stuffing.
Some families share the responsibilities of putting together the food, while others choose to do it all themselves. When my mother used to host our family groups she would do the meat and potatoes and gravy while everyone else would bring the vegetables, salads, desserts and whatever else what decided upon.
Quite a few years ago when my mother’s eyesight began failing, (she has macular degeneration in both eyes), the responsibility passed onto my brother and his wife. They chose to do it because of all of us they have a larger house, and they were beginning to have grandchildren that would be familiar with Nana and Papa’s house.
Usually we share cooking responsibilities, but sometimes my sister-in-law chooses to do it all herself.
I just returned home from our family gathering. I need to get to bed shortly as I need to be to work again tomorrow at 5:45am. I’m hoping I will get out fairly early so I can get a lot more writing done.
I thought I’d write and touch base so you all would know that I’m not lost off the face of the earth. Tomorrow I hope to write something about people that you may have in your life that may be inconsiderate-they seem to be more prevalent than I ever knew.
