We’ve celebrated 19 Thanksgivings since living in this house. I’ve hosted about 15 of the 19 Thanksgivings, baking the turkey, ham, making stuffing, mashed potatoes, a variety of vegetables, and desserts. This year, however, I had our Thanksgiving meal catered. This was a first for me, but with only two weeks til moving day,
my time needed to be spent packing and cleaning.
I ordered the food from my favorite grocer, yet it was still a little unnerving for me. Overall, the food was pretty tasty though and it made Thanksgiving much more relaxing. Just a few dishes to do and we headed out for another first.
We’ve never gone to see a movie on a holiday, but with all the changes happening in our lives these days, it seemed like another fun first to try.
Of course this Thanksgiving was also the last that we will spend in this house. For a matter-of-fact, it was the last holiday that we will spend in this house.
We’ve made some terrific holiday memories in this house over the years and those memories we will carry with us always.
Typically, with Thanksgiving behind us, I turn my focus to Christmas. I’m typically dusting off the decorations and decking the halls about now,
but instead I spent the day bagging up more donations, helping hubby dispose of our mattress and box (we really need a new one), tear down the girl’s bedrooms and get them set up in the master bedroom. I also packed. I do that daily now.
We made some good progress as we tackled all the things that need to be done before we pull out in two weeks.
Now time for bed, because tomorrow it’s only 1 week and 6 days.
