In anticipation of Turkey Day tomorrow…
I worked all day and fought the pre-holiday traffic on the evening commute. I stopped by the store on the way home for some last minute items for a side dish for tomorrow. Everyone else must have done the same because the store was packed. After dinner, I fell into bed exhausted. The kids were occupied in the playroom with the new treadmill.
Next thing I knew, it was 10:30. I must have dozed off. I got up to check on the kids and they were in their beds. Asleep. I don’t remember them coming to get me – and I find it highly unusual that they would let me sleep and put themselves to bed quietly (they don’t do anything quietly). But I’m not complaining.
The dishes were also done. Unless my dream of housekeeping fairies came true, I suspect the husband did them. Again, not complaining.
So I got a nap and my house took care of itself. Now I am going back to bed so I can get up in the morning to start the feast preparations.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone !
