I was shopping for groceries after work today, when it suddenly dawned on me that Thanksgiving is barely a week away. For a split second, I panicked. There was nothing Thanksgiving-related on my shopping list. No potatoes, no stuffing, no cranberries, no sexy Pilgrim babes. (What, there’s no such thing? Well, there should be). We don’t even have a turkey yet! Then I took a deep breath and relaxed. There’s still time.
But not much.
I feel like Thanksgiving has snuck up on me this year. Part of the problem is the weather: the first half of the month has been unusually warm. We were pushing 70 degrees just a few days ago. It finally cooled off to a more seasonal 50 or so yesterday, so now it’s beginning to feel like the holiday season. Also, we are not hosting a big dinner for the first time in…umm, ever…so there hasn’t been that usual sense of urgency. It’s hard to believe that in a little more than a week it’ll be time to start decking the halls already!
