I meant to sit down so many times and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I just found it too difficult, I guess, to look at the day and kept putting it off.
Well, not able to sleep the night before, I finally laid down about 1100 and slept through my 1200 alarm, making me late for the dinner. I rushed to prepare, take care of the dog's needs, and make it out the door, only being 15-minutes late. We laughed it off, but I hate to be late. I got hugs from my 3 aunts and went into the living room to watch the Lions/Packers game.
It was a good day. The things I brought went over well, and I learned that my aunt's best method for determining who will win the games centers around the asthetic quality of the football playera' "hats". It does seem to work: She believed the Lions have the prettiest hats, and she likes the dolphin, too. But, as she really hates the color of the Dolphin's pants, I think it may be a wash. In the end, I thought it an interesting method that seems no more effective than any other.
I was sent home with some turkey after an enjoyable day. And, my puppers enjoyed some of that when I fumbled on the goal line.....she was right there to help.
So, I guess I'd like to wish everyone a happy Holiday, especially those like me who looked upon yesterday with dread.
