Ok…before you string us up, or think we are totally ungrateful, let me start out by saying that my family celebrates Thanksgiving the Saturday before and S’ family lives out of state. We did celebrate Thanksgiving – we just skipped it yesterday.
We are thankful for a lot of things year round but yesterday we were most thankful for not having to be stuck in traffic jams or wait in long check-in and security lines at the airport. We are thankful that we did not have to rush around like Turkeys with our heads cut off to get somewhere on time. We are thankful that we didn’t have to cook and more thankful that we didn’t have to clean up after a huge coma-inducing turkey meal.
What we were also thankful for yesterday were eyes to see, healthy lungs, strong legs to walk on and the privilege of living in an area with such beautiful (and plentiful) recreation opportunities so we could do this:
We worked up a huge appetite and dined on chicken and potatoes for dinner…..served to us by the great staff at McDonalds that sacrificed begin home with their families to make sure we didn’t go hungry. (note: the dogs did not get chicken and potatoes…they had boring ol’ kibble).
