Thanksgiving

Everyone, on both sides of the 49th parallel, thinks back to what they are most thankful for while feasting on Thanksgiving dinner.  In the US it is turkey as the prime dinner of choice replete with sweet potatoes, stuffing and turkey; if you're one of those that goes beyond that, good for you.  ME?  I'll just snatch a tidbit of turkey and horde the sweet potatoes.

I ate alone this year.  My son is working to get the holiday pay bonus and that makes me proud.  He's trying to keep his life on track, moving ahead, figuring who and what he is going to be, trying to support his mom by giving her test taking tips and hints.

I really don't know what I'm most thankful for this year.  My job allows me to go to school and gives me enough income to keep the lights on, put gas in my truck, and pay my tuition.  I'm very thankful for that.

I'm thankful my body no longer wants to produce babies :)  A new friend of mine is going through the PMS cycle and I willingly admit, I do not miss PMS or anything about it.  I don't miss baby pangs, baby dreams, baby panderings.  Now, that said, I'm not sure what to blame mood swings on, so I guess, I'll blame ochem.

Yes, ochem equates to PMS.

Think it should be a Twitter.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

(PS:  If there are drugs to help nausea, are there meds to induce the reverse?  As in, I've eaten 3 lbs of sweet potatoes and 1 pound of turkey and after sleeping for 4 hours, the finger down the throat is not helping... :P  I thought eating alone would be good why???)

Clearly you forgot about pacing with Thanksgiving dinner. Big plate now...digest for a few hours...slightly smaller plate later....more digestion...repeat as tolerated. Same quantity of food, less abdominal bloating and pain.

North of the 49th parallel Thanksgiving was in October.

But I'm still thankful! :)

I knew that :) Just was not sure how to work in that Canadian Thanksgiving happens in early October and U.S. is November.

Used to date a Canadian (aka: Evil)... not that Canadians are evil, just he is...

And there I go, off ADHD meds and all, down...

Have a great day!

And I do not understand what this "pacing" is, SD. :P

Just finished off the rest of the sweet potatoes...

I bet, overall, I ate 4,000 calories today. Can I burn that in my sleep?!
