An issue came up yesterday that has changed the way my family gets together on the holiday's. The one where your kid is married and has babies and you want them at your house, but they have another family now to share Thanksgiving with. Have you ran into this problem?
It's not fun to go through and I have had to learn to let go. Yes, I would love to have the Thanksgiving's I used to have, especially since it is my favorite holiday, but I do understand being pulled in different directions and not being able to please everyone.
I do miss the days when we had a big house and everyone came for the holiday dinner. My husband and I love to get in the kitchen and cook together all day, and then the best part, everyone loves the delicious food! Then you laze around for a while and watch football until the homemade pie is served.
Those were the days!
It is hard for both sides to get together too. I am a very picky eater, I don't mean to be, but I am. I don't think I could go to eat someone else's dinner. I have tried that in the past, but I miss my way of cooking. I know, I'm a pain, but it's true about me.
Let me know if you run into the problem and what you have had to do to fix it. Maybe in a few years we will have a bigger house and can have everyone over like we used too. Until then, I am having a small dinner I guess.
Drop me a comment if you want, I would love to hear from you! See all of you Thursday!
