Thanksgiving

The day has just started, spending it with family,at my mom's.  Have had all the grandkids over since Tuesday night.  I had to work 12-14 hour days, but I'm off for 2, so life is good.  Just sent my daughter to get last minute things, I don't want to walk in a grocery at all today.
We plan on taking the kids somewhere tomorrow, no shopping for me.  My son is taking my husband's motorcycle back with him.  He really wanted to help me get rid of some of the stuff in the garage, but I don't want to spend the short time I have with them working on the house.  Maybe we'll do a little.  My husband collected everything.  Some might be worth something, but mostly it meant something to him alone.
I invited someone from my past (15years old)  to come to my mom's for dessert.  His mom lives down the street.  I haven't seen him in over 30 years.  I've been talking to him on facebook.  I don't want to make a big deal over it, but I thought I would be more comfortable seeing him around people, in a familiar place.  We'll see, if he even show up.
The Saints play at 3, so it turkey, then the game.  Who Dat!

I hope that it all went well & that you had a nice reunion. Your mention of your son taking his dad\'s bike home brought up such feelings. That will be the one thing of Dix that I will hate to see go the most. He LOVED it. Started riding at age 70. If I don\'t have to sell it I will give it to his #3 son. Hugs, Val

Well my friend didn\'t call, we both went back home at 3. He did call this evening and we talked for a good 30-40 minutes. He asked to take me out to eat, and I said as long as it has no strings attached. He said that was fine, he just hasn\'t seen me in almost 40 years.
I didn\'t watch my son, load up the bike. I think I was upset with my daughter in law, not helping, and getting in the shower before I could. I just think I was overwhelmed trying to do it all, in such a short time. The day went fine, it was over too soon.
