Our thanksgiving went off well..dinner was late, tables looked ok, my brother and family left one hour after arrival for other functions but over all, we had a great time. I am so glad I took the position I did and just went with it. We still laughed,ate too much and felt blessed to able to be together one more year. Friday was a drag, I got sick and now am finally feeling better. I was not so sick I could not get my Christmas decorations up, but spent most the weekend in what I like to call "Thanksgiving host hangover".
All and all a good lesson in general for me to just chill and go with it and I am happier for it.
