With the sharing the news of my recent surgery, you wouldn't believe what the number 1 response is: "Right before Thanksgiving!?!"
Well, first the BIC (big insurance companies) don't let you be very picky, so you do it when you must. I'm ever so thankful for the life-redo, that it is beyond words. And to have such a skilled surgeon and staff pull me through in a fashion that I can actually enjoy my Thanksgiving more than comfortably, is a gift in itself.
We'll be spending today at home. I'm making a small, smoked turkey breast for Darren and Cassie. Some mashed sweet potatoes, green beans, and cheddar-broccoli wild rice casserole. For me, I'm having some homemade split pea soup. Truth be told, it's really not bothering me one bit not to be indulging. Where was this resolve at other times? This surgery is amazing!
We'll watch the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade, and I Tivo'd Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving.
Tomorrow we're going to the Christmas Tree farm and will take a hayride to get a tree. We'll do it, even though I still have a problem with hayrides in 75 degree weather. LOL
To you and yours, I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving, and that you are reminded of what is truly important to be thankful for.
