Ahh, it is that time of year again. Time to clean every nook and cranny in your house if you are the lucky winner of the race to host the family Thanksgiving! I am buried in laundry, cleaning products, and dishes right now. We do not have a formal or informal dining room here. I have to go out and get a folding table with chairs for the kids to eat on. As it stands... I keep trying to get HHH to fix a few things around the house, but he is so tired when he gets home I feel bad about asking him to do it. I need a ceiling fan replaced, a toilet seat fixed or replaced, and my kitchen light cover put back on. Yesterday he was soooooo pooped when he got home, I just met him at the door with a plate of dinner, (bacon onion meatloaf, potatoes, and corn), a cold drink, and put on Ocean's 13 for him to relax to.
I also have the .......shudder......... wonderful task of going into my kids rooms and cleaning out their crap that has collected over the year. I go through this before every holiday season and weed out the broken toys, junk, and just plain crap. I want to be able to walk, not wade into their rooms.
So, for Thanksgiving dinner, I am putting together a menu that will include :
Home Made Stuffing
Brown Sugar Butter Yams
Home Made Gravy
Broccoli Cheese casserole
I don't make the cranberry sauce. I get the jellied kind from the can. Funny how we stick to the things we grew up with as kids. I can't imagine a holiday season with out that "SLUCK" sound the jellied cranberry sauce makes when it come out of the can. Love it! I also can't wait to watch the Macy's Parade this year. I would help my mom make the stuffing and all, while watching the parade on TV. Update on mom..... still haven't heard from her since the big to do on Monday. I don't know what to think. I am just going to wait until my Sis goes and sees them on Saturday and get an update from her on how it is going. Dad is supposed to have a CAT Scan tomorrow and I will probably have to get the results from her.
Well, I have to be off. More to clean, more to wash, and I just don't have enough time to do it with. You know how it is.
