'Twas the Monday before T day and all through my house
There weren't enough groceries to feed even a mouse.
Karen still had to work two days this week.
Frank was driving a man for employment to seek.
But Thanksgiving was not to be like in the past....
We were leaving on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving beach blast.
Cousin, A had rented a big place on the beach
And judging from the pictures it was really a peach.
We were planning to dine with D's mom and dad....
This was such a new venture for us.....it was RAD!
Amanda would sale in on Wednesday night
The rest of us would be all cozy and tight.
We'd cook Thursday morning to take to the Hughes.
I hope that we don't end up blowing the fuses.
Ten new additions would be at the Hughes table
After lunch we would watch some TV if we are able.
Then family photos all down by the shores
Then sleepy time so Friday we can hit all the stores.
Many of us must head home before nightfall.
But I can promise you now...we will all have a Ball.
What are you going to be thankful for this year on Thanksgiving day? I would love for you to share it with me in a comment. Thought I would leave you with a smile. I love Thanksgiving....and hate that retail Christmas overshadows it. Christmas retail is not supposed to officially start until Black Friday....a friend posted this on Facebook today and I had to share it with you. Happy Monday!
