I love turkey smothered in mashed potatoes and savory gravy. I love yeast rolls and cornbread dressing. I love pumpkin pie!
But that's not what Thanksgiving is all about. I mean I guess it kinda is since they did have a big feast.
So here's my top 5 things I'm thankful for at Thanksgiving.
5. I'm thankful I didn't have to grow corn or kill my own turkey or wear white paper or feather hats. Because with feather hats comes war paint and I'm out this year. And with the white hats come no make-up and um...well that ain't happenin! (make-up and war paint are totally different)
4. I'm thankful the dude at Kroger's let me know if I didn't have a Kroger card my turkey would have been $30 bucks, so I saved over $12 since he saved me. So I'm totally thankful for young punks who yawn at 7:30 in the morning but are on top of saving money for old broads like me.
3.I'm thankful I got to brag about my savings to my husband as most times, I'm trying to talk him into believing all the money I spend is for good reasons...you know like pretty stuff for my house or books. Or 10 assorted creamers and yes, I will drink all of them. Yes, I do need them all. I like making choices--or at least having choices, I don't necessarily like making them.
2. I'm thankful no one expects me to dress up on Thanksgiving and I can wear my "eating" pants and no shoes.
And the #1 thing I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving is....
Naps! Because 1, I love naps especially on Turkey day and everyone knows it's inevitable because of Tryptophan and 2, it gets me out of conversations I care nothing about. Like who's scoring a touchdown or who's not backing the line...thus line backers, right? Right?
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Gobble Gobble!
I'll be taking a blogging break until next Wednesday. I know that's a long time to do without me, but I'll still be all over facebook and twitter, so don't lose touch with me. Seriously, don't. :)
