So I'll tell you a little Thanksgiving tale. Last night I had a whole lot of homework to do. It was due at 9:00 pm and then my Thanksgiving break would officially begin. I had pretty much put off getting ready for our company to come into town until after all the homework was done, since I thought I would have a whole day until they got here tonight. Meaning, the dishes are piled high along with the garbages, the spare bedroom looks like my closet hurled all over it, and my front room and kitchen table are covered in textbooks, notebooks, laptops, and papers. It wasn't pretty. Actually I wouldn't even classify it as livable for humans.
So then, my husband gets a voicemail, and it's our company calling to let us know said company is hopping on the plane right now and will see us in a couple hours. HOURS. Because, as it turns out, we thought said company was coming in tonight, but really it was last night. As you can imagine, hysteria ensued. We live a little over an hour away from our airport and the flight was coming in approximately one hour and fourteen minutes after getting the message. Yes, it was legitimate chaos there for a second, and maybe still is, just a little.
But you know, it's fine, because having the people you love around whether they are late or early is what really matters, not so much having the cleanest house, or the perfect pie crust, or a table-setting like Martha's. It's Thanksgiving, remember? Not stress-yourself-out-over-place-mats-and-centerpieces-and-keeping-the-house-vacuumed-day.
And so, S and I will be off enjoying all our lovely people for the next few days, and this blog is probably going to be a little quiet. However, I'm sure you won't mind since you will probably be off having a great time too.
