it was kinda bitter sweet for me - mostly sweet. On one hand, it was GREAT as usual - G and I always go waaaaaaaaaaaaay out for Thanksgiving - I'm sure that someone out there might say we do too much, but we love it, love doing it, love cooking up a storm and will continue to do so (in fact, last year we didn't do anything - i went to a friend's house and it just wasn't the same). I was off for the entire week, G2 and family were here, both parents were here and then on the day itself others came over to eat and lime. We had a fantastic time!
We don't ever ask anyone to bring any dishes. We do all the cooking - cept the turkey which we buy from Popeye's; it's a cajun deep fried turkey - delicious. Anyhoo, so G likes to cook and so she normally has more dishes to do than i, but somehow this year, i was only responsible for 4.
Here's where it got bitter - I got thru 1.5 dishes before the MS kicked in and said, "uh uh - ur ass needs to sit down and relax!" I'd been standing for too long i s'pose and i just couldn't walk or stand up anymore. I prepared the first dish, then had to improvise and continue preparing the 2nd while sitting at the table, rest for a few when that was done and then use a chair by the stove to do the others. In retrospect, i guess it was a good thing that i was only responsible for 4. It sucked! i wasn't happy about it! i cursed the MS and I cursed it loud! I just couldn't do my thanksgiving as i was used to - i didn't appreciate that at all! I'm sure that i knew that it could/would happen, but i still wasn't totally prepared for it when it did. oh well, wha ah go do (what can i do).
Here's hoping that everyone had a great thanksgiving with family and friends like i did!
