Just the kids and i this year for Thanksgiving. Going to my best friend's house for dinner and the weekend. This is our tradition most years anyways. It actually feels weird to cook Thanksgiving on my own or to spend it with our family instead of hers.
The upside to not being around your own family during the holidays is that you don't have to deal with their drama. And other people's family drama is rather amusing.
Instead, i will be shopping...though is it still Black Friday when the shopping starts at 6pm ON Thanksgiving?! i'll be done and probably in bed before midnight on Friday. i used to work retail and i know how much that sucks for the workers. i don't usually go, but my bestie and i thought we'd have some fun (snort) and leave all our kids with her husband.
