Why I am not having Thanksgiving dinner at my house.

Oh, don't worry. I AM cooking Thanksgiving dinner for Hubby and me. I will not deny us my awesome cooking. LOL! But we are not having anyone over for Thanksgiving.

Hubby and I both figured that our kids would do as they had done in previous years and attend the Thanksgiving get together that Hubby's sister has. The sister that Hubby has not spoken to in 4 years. I did have to message the kids about Christmas as MIL wanted to figure out when our family Christmas would be. Then the kids started asking what we are doing for Thanksgiving. I told them we figured they were going to their aunts, but they wanted me to cook sometime, too. I bet they did! LOL! We had decided on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Then last Friday night I came home to this:

It did not look like this when I left for work. And this is only one view. It was just as bad behind me. Boxes and wires and cables and electronics everywhere with paths just wide enough for Hubby to get through in his wheelchair. He decided he felt like hooking up his electronics. Fine with me, but when will you be done? LOL!

I had told him about the Thanksgiving plans and he told me we would have to meet the kids at a restaurant as we were not ready for anyone to come over. I told him fine...he would need to make arrangements with them. So, he started working on that.

A couple of days ago, the living room looked like this:

I just laughed. It kept getting worse and worse, but stuff WAS getting hooked up and Hubby was busy and happy every day.

The plan now is that we will be meeting the kids on Saturday at Olive Garden. But I want Thanksgiving food, so I will be cooking up a storm for Hubby and me tomorrow. I plan to have LOTS of leftovers. Yummy!

This year, I am thankful for my family, friends, good health and financial stability. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
