I had a great Thanksgiving at my daughter Dawn's home. Bailey picked me up and took me and brought me home again. It was just their family and her husband's father so only 7 of us. I did well on a spectacular meal. I was putting the beverages around. Dawn asked Bailey to but she was busy and I said I will. She was surprised because I haven't helped much for quite awhile because I was so heavy it was hard. But I did and switched the big plate for a little one and didn't give myself anything to drink. I usually fight Kelsey for the turkey skin but said no I'd better not. She did bring me one tiny piece I ate and it was awesome. I took a tiny bit of potatos, a little more dressing, tiny bit of white turkey, and then kind of blew it by putting gravy over all of it. I took a small scoop of the salad I'd folded the pretzels into. I had a sliver of apple and one of strawberry/rhubarb pie, heated with a scoop of ice cream around 4. I brought a little bit of everything home. I did bring more white meat because nobody there likes white meat and she even bakes two extra legs for more dark meat. I helped more than I have in years and maybe all that up and down back and forth helped lessen the overeating.
