Many of you remember reading about my oldest son a few months ago. Last August I dropped him off in North Carolina, three thousand miles away from home, to begin his freshman year in college. I sobbed, I cried … and then I went off to have cocktails with some of my readers while I was there.
My readers are the best – they made me feel better! (Yes, they did!)
Others of you may remember even further back when I put my daughter on the wrong train to send her back to college. It was one of my most stellar (!) mom-moments.
Doesn't it just make you want to stick around for the next few years and see what I'll do to my third child?
Last night my daughter drove home (arriving late) from her college which is here in California. My eldest son flew in from North Carolina and arrived home even later than my daughter.
My youngest still lives at home, of course, and he was overjoyed to see his brother and sister again.
No, really he was.
I'm exhausted from the late night reunions. I'm also overjoyed to have my family all together for the Thanksgiving weekend this year.
I will be doing a ton of cooking over the next few days. I will get a few posts up on Twenty Four At Heart over the next few days also, but they will most likely be light and fluffy. Or short and sweet. Or … something like that. I know you understand.
In the meantime, I'm always curious to hear about other family's Thanksgiving traditions. I realize many of you are reading from other countries and don't celebrate Thanksgiving. However, even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving where you live you can still probably answer this question …
What kind of stuffing/dressing do you like? What is your family's favorite?
Let me know! I'm nosy.
P.S. As many of you have requested, I've turned off word verification in my comments section. It's now easier and much faster to leave comments. You're very welcome!
