Thanks to you.

To make a long story short, Gram decided she's not having Thanksgiving this year, she's going to her niece's house. That kinda leaves me hanging without any substantial Thanksgiving plans this year, and no back up plan. I'm sure I could weasel in at my brother's, or something, but I didn't even give a courtesy notice. I'm not feeling sorry for myself, it's just a change of life that kind of surprised me.
I've never had Thanksgiving at (gasp!) a restaurant, but maybe I'll give it a go.
But anyway, thanks, everyone, for making it fun here. It's a great place to be and I like you all. Next year, I'll plan on cooking and you're all invited.
There are several rules at my house, though, which may be out of the ordinary.
* The TV stays off.
* Singing IS allowed at the table. My dad hated singing at the table. I have changed that rule.
* Kids get their own bowl of at least 10 black olives so they can put them on their fingers.
* Snack all you want. And eat your dessert with dinner, or even before. I'm ok with that, too.
* Dark meat lovers get shown extra love.
Have a great long weekend, everyone. If you go shopping on Friday, wave at my bedroom curtains on your way to Kohl's.
P.S. Beard is back. :)
