Thanksgiving

Being married means several families to spend Thanksgiving with. Some relatives live out of state, so they do their own Thanksgiving party. But for those who stay in one town, there’s a lot of “What are you doing for Thanksgiving?” The answer is “I dunno.”

“Who’s hosting this year?”
“I dunno.”

Growing up, my family was always on a timeline. Start cleaning the house. Plan the menu. Invite friends. Fix the food. Get the leaves for the tables from the garage. Set everything up with centerpieces.

Now that I’m hosting again, it’s more like this. Start cleaning the house. Plan the menu and figure out who is bringing what. Invite family and figure out who is coming when. Dig out the leaves for the tables from the storage shed and dust off the spiders. Figure out what centerpieces to use and make sure the cats don’t jump up on the table at the last minute.

Well, Thanksgiving will be interesting this year. Now, I just need to find out who’s hosting Christmas dinner this year.
