If I remember correctly, I spent last Thanksgiving alone and that was a bummer. But I made it through. This year, I am happy to be living where I am, in spite of the circumstance. It’s nice to live with someone and I NEVER want to live alone again.
So I have all of my food for my dinner, give or take a few items that I have to pick up today. The lady that I live with is so generous with her car, so I can run around when I need to. Tomorrow, we have errands and I’m going to get my Christmas decorations out of storage and pick up our movie tickets for the Black Nativity for Thanksgiving night. After dinner we are going to the movies because that’s what I want to do since Thanksgiving is also my birthday!
My sister is coming over for dinner and another neighbor, so I definitely won’t be alone. I’m just glad to be with people this holiday. I am definitely a people person. Tomorrow evening, I will start on my dinner. Not a big dinner. Just Turkey, stuffing, green beans, yams, apple pie and ice cream. Enough for us. My host keeps hinting for potato salad and or macaroni and cheese. We will see. Too much starch! Gotta watch those carbs for health, even on a holiday.
Tomorrow, I am going to see a movie as well. I saw the Hunger Games today. All of this for my birthday. Pre-celebration! God is good and I am happy! And I also feel like something GOOD is about to happen!
I’m so blessed! How about you?
