It's Almost Turkey Time

Only one more week until Thanksgiving and I'm so excited! Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday. I have a great family that doesn't see each other all that often so it is always a good time when we get together. It is always a time for me to relax and enjoy everyone's company. (I'm sure that would change if I ever had to host Thanksgiving) I have all the girls this year and we are trekking across the state to spend a few days with my parents. My sister and her hubby are coming in from Chicago and I'm sure my brother will wander in at some point.

My step-mom is an amazing cook so I know that she will put on a good spread. However, since she has been battling cancer this year, I'm sure we will be doing everything we can to get her to sit down (with no success, I'm sure). The woman does not know how to relax. She is a hostess through and through. We love her, though and wouldn't trade her for anything.

The trip is usually about 4-4.5 hours and we have it pretty much down pat. It really helps that the girls are now older and the DVD player is a lifesaver. There is nothing like having a crying baby for the last 45 minutes of the trip because she is so done with the car. Fortunately, there is always booze available upon arrival.

The next few days for me will be spent cleaning(ish) and doing laundry. If I didn't have to work the next few days, I wouldn't be sad at all. Seriously though, why isn't is Friday yet? I'm ready to catch up on my sleep.

What are your plans for the holidays? Travelling or staying home?
