Just when I had it all planned out where I didn’t have to worry about anything at all things get changed and now I’ll have to try some will powers and that’s in really short supply right now.
Last night about midnight my MIL called my hubby and announced we are all going to the Casino for Thanksgiving dinner. A huge, eat all you want because someone else is paying for it, someone else fixed it, buffet.
It’s a good thing I have Allan’s serving size plate embedded in my brain. 1/2 veggies, 1/3 meat, 1/2 starches. It’s a good thing I love fresh veggies so I can fill a full plate with salad, broccoli, cubes, carrots and what not the first time around and then have a plate like Allan said. It’s really a good thing I like fresh fruit over dessert because I think if I can have melon instead of pie I will be okay. Plus water, lots and lots of water!!
CRAP!!! I had it all planned out. Jim was fixing the dinner with everything I picked up and he knows how hard I’ve been working so he wasn’t going to serve me, we were going to have buffet style and I could just get a bit of this and that and they could eat everything else. CRAP!!! Will power, I need will power!!! Please send me some will power!!!
My MIL hasn’t seen me for at least a good year. Will she notice I’ve worked hard and look good? Will she notice anything good or just the fact I’m older, fatter then when I got married, hair color different with a touch of gray, the wrinkles. Remember my MIL isn’t my favorite fan so really why do I care. I just do.
Oh well, Thanksgiving is a day of blessings so I will skip the worry and remember all that I have to be thankful for. I have been listing on my fridge a thankful list for the past 23 days. Now I didn’t put on there family, friends, house, car….that kind of things because…well we all are pretty blessed with that kind of stuff. I have put on there lots of different things. Like visitors, pork chops, early outs, morning with Jim, birthday parties, wood stove, thrift stores, customers, craft with the kids, telephones, sunshine, craft shows….lots more. I am truly blessed. Another one on my list is blogs. Blogging is amazing. You guys are amazing. Being able to share things, ask for help, get comments and ideas has truly been wonderful. So thankful is what I am and will be.
So instead of CRAP!!!! I’m going to say, thank you for taking us out for a wonderful dinner, thank you for taking the time to be with us.
I wish you all the most blessed Thanksgiving. I’m going to take a couple days off now and I’ll be back on Friday for my hotties update.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING MY FRIENDS!!!! You are the most awesome people. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
