Happy National Day of Enforced Gluttony

Yes, Turkey Day has finally arrived. This is a day I look forward to all year. I'm always happy to be thankful, but I'm always happier to have a really fine feast. Great good, great parade, fine friends and family. What better can you get? OK, maybe a bit of family dysfunction, which always is great blog fodder, but this year I think we're OK on that score.

We actually made it through an entire day with not one fight. Plus, the Girl has been working hard on not swearing and asked the Boy to try harder to remove the F word from his speech. I'm working to reinforce this as well. Should be interesting. Having the Girl home means freshly painted fingernails for Mommy, a house that already looks like a cyclone struck it, and a ton of kids in the house. She's so happy to be home, to see and talk to her friends, and to hug the Worthless Pet. After weeks away from any furry being, she's finally agreed that she too is allergic to cats. That makes all 3 of us, and yet, we have a cat. A cat that is so happy to see his Girl that he follows her around like a shadow.

I fell asleep before making the last pie, so I have to do it later on, but everything else is right on schedule. Dinner at 6. I'm already salivating. The pecan pie I made looks so outstanding. I'm not one to like a small layer of nuts and a bunch of the gooey stuff. Nope, I like a pie that is thick with nuts. It's something you only eat once a year, why not make it super indulgent? That's my motto!

For those of you lame enough to be blogging on Thanksgiving Day, and for my international readers who are probably sick to death of Thanksgiving posts, I swear that this will be my last word on the subject. After I gloat about how wonderful the dinner was. Deal?

Gooble gobble gobble.

Allergic to cats? So am I. I recommend rabbits. They litter train easily, and they're rather independent creatures, except when they want snuggling and attention. Much like cats, I dare say. Biased? Maybe. We have three.
