“When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain.”


3:06 AM

I went to bed extremely early last night and now I'm up at 3 AM. I have a million things running through my brain and even more things to do before the big family Thanksgiving dinner we're hosting at our new home this year. Previously, because we lived in a mobile home and didn't have room, we would rent the clubhouse at the community park. This year, everyone thinks our home is big enough for this shindig. As a matter of fact, when we began our little house hunt, one of my SILs said, "Make sure you buy a house big enough to have everyone over for Thanksgiving." Irked Really? We know she said this because she would have to rent the clubhouse (she still lives in the community). Why can't someone else be responsible for organizing this shit show? I dare say, disappointment will ensue because I don't believe our house is big enough to host 20 people for a Thanksgiving feast. MY BAD!

This family stopped having family gatherings when their parents passed away. But when we moved back to Michigan, Matt and I were determined to have at least one family gathering a year. We all live about 20 minutes (or less) from each other and never visit. I don't understand it and frankly, it makes me sad. I would visit my siblings, well, most of them, every chance I could when we lived down south. I have one sister that would visit almost every day!

Next year, I'm hoping we can do something (other than buy a bigger house!) to get this family together more often. If I've learned anything since the beginning of 2020, it's that you should never take anything for granted, especially family. Any one of us could be here today, and gone tomorrow.

Now, Matt is awake and getting ready to work his last shift before a 5-day weekend. So I have to get off my ass and get to work!

Later, y'all! Wave
