My husband is Canadian so I use that as a reason to celebrate Thanksgiving twice :-) Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. I try to keep our Canadian version scaled-down and healthier than the American rendition.
We're having -
My favorite Chardonnay :-)
Homemade sugar-free cranberry sauce
Stuffing made with broth (not butter), lots of veggies, and a mix of whole wheat and white breads
Steamed green beans
Turkey breast roast with fat-free gravy (from a jar though)
Low-sugar low-fat crustless pumpkin pie & coffee
My forearm is bothering me after all the pronation involved in paperwork over the weekend so I decided to skip Power this morning (which is also very hard on my arm) and just do an elliptical workout followed by my complete 'home' therapy regimen developed by my physical therapist, and then Centergy. Good call as my arm is feeling MUCH better this afternoon.
Thinking about how I want to handle our anniversary on Friday. DH is totally distracted with work right now. I think the most likely scenario is that he'll work late enough that we can't really celebrate on Friday. (I've BTDT too many times to count. Shaping up that way for tonight's holiday dinner as well. Even though he says he'll be home by 7, I know he may well call and tell us to eat without him.) I'm trying to decide if I should ask him to commit to getting home at a decent time on Friday or if I should ask him NOW if he'd like to postpone until Saturday when chances are slim that work will impact the celebration. What I most want to avoid is being disappointed on what should be a happy day.
