Thanksgiving Blues

Hi! It's Jilly. Because of school, we've been away from family and on our own for many holidays. Usually it doesn't bother me too much that we're not with extended family on holidays, but for some reason this year it is really bumming me out! Thanksgiving is one that especially has me feeling a bit blue.

To me, Thanksgiving is this big, loud holiday filled with family and friends. Lots of people gather to eat, play games, and talk about what we're thankful for. This year it's just our little family of five, plus one of other couple. I'm sure it will be fine, but I'm just feeling bummed about it!

Another thing is...what's the point of spending all this time making all this food to eat for just a few minutes, then have a big 'ole mess to clean up?! Like I need more chores to do. I already can't keep up with the housework. Le sigh. 

I know I sound so Grinchy. First world problems, and all that jazz. I should just be grateful that we have food to eat, a warm apartment to live in, and family & friends to share the day with. I mean, isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about?! Giving thanks for the many blessings we have?!

Ok. It's time to leave this pity party and plan a real party...Thanksgiving!!

What are your Thanksgiving plans? Are you gathering with a small group or a large one?
