I don’t know if it’s the fact that it’s 80 degrees in November in LA or that I’m working today, but it certainly hasn’t felt like Thanksgiving at all.
Because Laef leaves today with the basketball team and will be gone through Sunday, I am heading to San Diego to spend the holiday with friends.
Being with friends for holidays is a super fun party, but it totally lacks the “did my mom really just drink Two Buck Chuck from a plastic cup?” or the “Is my 3-year old niece really pooping on the toilet with a newspaper?” or the “Is my sister really licking the turkey bone?” or “Is Allison seriously puking on Thanksgiving Day from being hung over?”
Nothing beats family during the holidays.
Even if Laef wasn’t going to be gone, I’m pretty certain we wouldn’t be doing our own Thanksgiving dinner. Cooking a turkey for two doesn’t make any sense, so we would have gone somewhere else and watched other people cook and other people’s families interact.
But, some day, we’re going to have our own stories. Someday, I will be cooking a turkey, Laef will be playing WoW in his boxers and our babies will be passed around among aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. Someday, The Sanch will wonder what the fuck happened to the good ol’ days when he ran this town and there were no mini-humans to speak of.
By the way, come back HERE on Monday to read about a SUPER exciting holiday giveaway! I can’t believe I am giving away a present and I have to keep it secret for six days. This is torture for me, but I think you will like it!
