This year Mr. Right and I had his mother, sister, and her family to our house for Thanksgiving. We got up around 5:00 to start the ham and turkey. There was a loud thunder storm which woke the children up at 5:30 so we could not go back to sleep. Mr. Right and I cooked, cleaned, and chatted throughout the morning. I have had a cold this week. My voice has been very hoarse and I was not feeling all that great. We cooked several new recipes.
Throughout all of this, never once did we have the stressed out feeling that we sometimes get when entertaining. It is was so nice to work in tandem without the stress that often accompanies holidays. Maybe I just felt too sick to worry or maybe we have had some many real issues this year that getting worked up over a holiday dinner did not seem that important. Whatever the reason, I am thankful Mr. Right and I can pull off a nice holiday meal without stress and with lots of joy and satisfaction.
