There's just nothing to do. Except eat. And eat we do. In years past I would eat so much that I would feel sick. Ick, I hate that feeling.
I enjoy spending time with family, but I do that whether it's a holiday or not.
I also don't need a day to be thankful for things. I'm thankful everyday for everyone and everything in my life. Every night as my head hits the pillow I think about how lucky I am to have so much. Not material things, but a great family and friends and good health and happiness. I know that I'm fortunate. Not just on a Thursday in November, but every single day.
I find that I look forward to Thanksgiving being over. I look forward to a four day weekend. I look forward to Black Friday. I look forward to sleeping in the day after Black Friday. And I look forward to another year of things to be thankful for.
