Holy crapola. I cannot believe I'm saying this out loud. We had a completely peaceful, relaxing holiday weekend. No stress. No extended family. No difficult child issues. And the boys even put up all the leftovers after I asked once!! Yup. I have been abducted by aliens and transplanted into a pseudo life that only resembles mine on the surface. I love it! This past weekend was the first Thanksgiving holiday I have honestly enjoyed in more than 10 years. WOW. I almost think I need to pinch myself, but I'm afraid I'll wake up and realize it was all just a cruel dream.
