We’re hosting T Day this year, which means no long road trips for us! However in an obvious exchange, we get to cook! So as I was talking to my good friend Heather, I revealed that I had not yet gotten the Turkey, she strongly encouraged me to do so.
I was planning on doing all of my shopping tomorrow. And if I recall correctly that was how I did it last year. I bought the turkey on Tuesday night and did the rest of the shopping on Thanksgiving Eve. Which, as I also recall meant that I was unable to find a few products I had planned on purchasing. Oh yeah and since it takes like 4 years to thaw the damn bird it’s a good thing I got it today!
Why then, might you ask, did I not plan better for this year? Well, to be honest, I don’t think I have made the full mental shift required from being Thanksgiving Day guest to Thanksgiving Day host! Perhaps this will be the year it finally sinks in. I doubt it!
