Sometime during the year I made a very big statement.
Told the kids "no more Thanksgiving and Christmas parties at my house, I am done cooking".
I followed it up with putting my nice dining room table along the hedge on the road with a sign :"FREE". It was gone in 20 minutes.
I felt relief. After all, how many years was I the chef and could never cook enough. I always thought an army would come.I always had to have 3 vegetables, home made bread, 3 different desserts, it never ended. I loved it but lately the energy has left me. Blame the good old thyroid.
Then son moved back home when he lost his wife and he has agorophobia, big time, he can't leave the house and under no circumstance will I leave him alone in the house on the holidays.
Add to this that old B. gets very upset in daughter's house.He is better at home.
OK , now what?Bring out the pic nic table and the garden chairs and start cooking......one more time ....Happy Thanksgiving to all of you
