The Girl visited us last weekend - she was on her way to Waco for a girl's weekend, so Teddy stayed overnight on Saturday. Then she was back Sunday and it was nice to have her at our Sunday night dinner! It felt like I got nothing at my house done all weekend (as per the usual lately) and by Sunday night I was dreading the week...then it hit me...
Thanksgiving is in two weeks!!
With my new work schedule I have gotten far less done in the mornings than I had hoped I would, including getting any plans made for the holidays! So while The Girl and I chatted about Thanksgiving, I made a quick menu out, and a plan. And not surprisingly, it's very simple, with all the "tried and trues" we've come to love about the meal. Nothing Pinterest-inspired, nothing fussy. But if we do a little advance prep, we can eat as a family around noon, and visit together all morning with a minimum amount of fuss. Then I go into work at 2:30, which is kind of a bummer, but I will have the following FOUR days off to spend with my peeps! And for all of that, I feel a little less stressed about it, a little more thankful! So that's my Wednesday today - step one is getting to the grocery store before work so I can start my shopping and prepping!
How about you? Do you have a plan to start the holidays off right? Give me your tips!
