Here we go ladies. This is the kick-off to our busy season. Our season to Shine. From cooking, baking, shopping, wrapping, and entertaining, we are on! And we can go into this kicking and screaming or we can get ourselves together and show how we have it all together. First off if you are lucky to have an employed husband and a home, you have it all. We are recovering from a dead economy and a deadly hurricane so a lot of our friends and family are suffering. What can we all do to help them this season? So as we are cooking and shopping maybe we could make a little extra and buy just one more to donate to the church or give to a neighbor in need. Possibly if we can all live the way Jesus would want us to, especially in the season of his birth, we could make this world just a little bit nicer for us all. And this Thanksgiving, more than ever, with the insanity that comes with the day, we need to all stop and be grateful for all that we have. If you are lucky to have a turkey on your table, heat coming out of your radiator, and healthy loud children running around your home, you have a lot to be grateful for.
Tips for surviving this Thanksgiving!
Have a sense of humor.
Take a shower Thanksgiving morning and do your hair and make up no matter what!
Give your husband a writen list of what you expect of him that day.
If your guests offer to help you let them.
If they offer to bring a dish, assign them the mashed potatoes. Who wants to peel?
Remember more is less. Who needs 6 sides on Thanskgiving? And no one needs more than two pies to choose from.
Set your table the night before.
Display a table for drinks, beer, wine, a pitcher of water, and an ice bucket so you don’t have to get people drinks all day.
Put butter slices under your turkey skin to keep it moist.
Make sure you have extra rolls of toilet paper in your bathroom next to the toilet for your uncle. LOL
Have a glass of wine before any of your guest show up.
And for goodness sakes enjoy the food! We will all cleanse and diet after the New Year!
