I hope I didn’t come off like I was telling you what to do. I was just sharing my experiences of being alone on Thanksgiving and how I prefer it. I am sorry to hear bout your family. I do hope you had a nice and peaceful one.
Awesome! Thank you : )
That sounds so cool! Would love to watch that!
Wow, that was really cool. Thanks for sharing that. : )
I used to do that on purpose. I am an introvert and had many jobs working with the public. I took the day off to just recharge. Loved to eat alone and have some down time. Family thought I was a little crazy, but got used to it. I never quite got Thanksgiving anyway. It’s on a day with many big football games. Most of the people I was with, family or friends, really wanted to be watching the games. That is what they did most of the day. I wasn’t big into the games, so I just sat there, making small talk between commercials. That or making small talk with the very few others who weren’t into the games either. Then, you eat. Small talk mostly there for everyone wants to get back to the games. Why not have the day to watch the games and maybe set another day with no games for a get together? Ah well, now I live in another state, away from my family. I am a pet sitter, so usually working the holidays anyways. Like it that way. I hope you were alone because you chose to be?
I have volunteered in the past as well. That was awesome too. Did a place downtown where they rented out a huge hall and fed anyone who wanted to come. We served people their food and could sit and talk to them as well, if they wanted. They also had services for free haircuts, clothes, and a big jumpy tent for the kids. I would go on a hike after that. Was pretty awesome. That was when I lived in Cincy. Great organization did that.
Oh cool, thanks guys. I found the seagull!
Aggggh! That is scary! I lived in Ohio and moved to Oregon to get away from dealing with a lot of that stuff. Now I shovel every once in a great while and not almost all winter. I hated it, Shoveling, cleaning off the car, driving…Snow is only cool when you can just look out the window at it with a cup of hot chocolate. Well, that or play in it. When you have to do adult stuff with it, it sucks. ; )
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving or for those who don’t celebrate, a Happy Thursday. ; )
I so love Dan’s mug. Very very cute. <3
Nice to see someone else watched that show. Ah, was strange, but really good and funny at times for sure. ; )
You made me think of Ally McBeal : )
