Sorry for excluding anyone not in the USA. I have been so DOWN lately. Just SAD all the time, for no particular reason. I know it's mostly my son; I miss him. Mostly, I miss the holidays - not the ones we've had the last 3 to 5 years - they've been pretty sucky - but I miss when he was little and excited. It all started with Halloween I guess...There's the big 3 family holidays in a row after all. But anyway... I love to feed people. It's just kinda my thing. I like to cook and I like to make people happy and my cooking tends to make people happy. I also really like Thanksgiving food; turkey and stuffing and sweet potatoes and fresh baked rolls...I should probably be paying more attention to the other thread on obesity, huh? But it's only once a year. Growing up, even though there was just 4 of us, my Mom would be up at 4 a.m. on Thanksgiving, making her Turkey with all the trimmings. We'd eat left-overs for a week and still put some in the freezer! I kept it up with Jabber and our son. I've always made a Thanksgiving dinner. Kid didn't like turkey? Too bad! This year though, it's just the two of us and it's just been bothering me. We'll do the family thing at Jabber's mom and dad's on Saturday...but Thursday there was nothing planed. So I talked to Jabber last night and we've decided to make an announcement at church Sunday that, if there's any other people like us, just one or two people in the house and they aren't wanting to cook, that they are invited to our house! It's short notice and I don't know that we'll get any takers, but I really, really, hope we do! Wish I could invite all of you!
