This year is the first year my family will be all over the place for Thanksgiving. My brother
and Jennie will be visiting Jennie's sister, bro in law, niece and nephew up in Portland. My
Dad, who unfortunately cannot join any of us as he will be working, will be in Tulsa. My
Mom was graciously invited to spend the holiday with good family friends and finally, I will
be heading upstate to visit the family for yet another amazing Thanksgiving dinner at Kim
& Lee's. I am very excited to stuff my face and then wake up the following morning and
run six miles with Aunt Nancy. Thinking about running helps with the gilt consuming my
very busy, thinking about how much I will be eating, mind.
I know I will be out of control just like most of you on this very special day, which has now
become known only for eating followed by napping so you can wake up in time to make the
front of the line for Black Friday shopping, something I am proud to say I have never taken
part in. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and be in my favor. The last thing I would want
is to be stuck at the airport on this surprisingly lonely day, even when you are surrounded by
thousands of other stranded travelers. I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday!
Now, go stuff your face!
