Happy Thanksgiving, my darling BOOBHs! I hope all of my American bloggy buddies are spending a lovely day with your families. I am cooking a huge feast for my little family; this is our second year of staying home and I could not be happier about it! We'll miss seeing our extended families but there is nothing quite like spending Thanksgiving in your pajamas (hurray for elastic waists!), watching movies, having a football catch, and oh yeah - eating and drinking!
Last year's dinner will be hard to top (my son still raves about it and it was pretty terrific, if I do say so myself... and I do), but so far the meal is coming along nicely. I made two dishes last night, got up before dawn to make the stuffing and molest the bird, and now I'm letting my husband sleep in while the kids watch The Polar Express. Soon, a nap. :)
Even though I allowed the turkey to thaw for four days it was still a little bit frozen inside, so fishing around for the neck this morning was a real treat! I finally resorted to squirting hot water in there to loosen the ice so I could get my fingers around it, so if we die of ptomaine poisoning later today, that's why. Oh, and since this is only the 3rd or 4th turkey I've ever roasted in my life I was pleased to finally remember where they hide the darn giblet package!
Speaking of that, I am venturing out at the ass-crack of pre-dawn tomorrow morning on my first-ever Black Friday excursion. Please wish me luck! I think we can hold our own; I'm not afraid to throw some elbows or dirty looks, especially at 4 AM. Bitches best not get in between me and a half-priced Dyson!
Anygravy, just wanted to pop in and wish you all a wonderful day. I am SO SO SO SO thankful for all of you. Your friendship and the laughter we share means the world to me!
*MWAH* Gotta run - my coffee ain't gonna spike itself. ;)
