Things are crazy around chez Maya this morning. Â It’s my fault because…well, I haven’t been to the grocery store yet. I hadn’t even decided what I was going to cook for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Â Picture me in the middle of the grocery aisles mentally figuring out a menu. Plus fourteen calls to the husband to ask whether he wanted A or B. Â Yeah, that was me a few minutes ago. Now I have groceries strewn all over my kitchen and OMG at some point I have to start cooking this stuff.
I’m hopelessly disorganized and I can’t believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I mean isn’t it still October?
But for me, Thanksgiving has always been the kick-off to the holiday season. Â Thanksgiving is irrevocably linked to Christmas in my mind the day after Thanksgiving the tree goes up, I begin to annoy the holy hell out of everyone with Christmas music, and I start tormenting the kids with wrapped pressies under the tree that they have to stare at for a solid month.
Only uhm I’ve done no shopping yet. Â I must get my ass in gear, clearly.
To address the timeless question of what I’m thankful for….today I’m grateful for hugs. Kisses from my babies. My obnoxious cats. And that I haven’t completely lost my mind. Â Yet…
I hope everyone has a terrific Thanksgiving Day and a wonderful kick-off to the holiday season. For all you insane people who are braving the madness of Black Friday, be careful! Â Don’t get trampled by little old ladies and maniacal mothers with strollers.
