There was one holiday that Phyllis went to my dad's side of the family and I went to my mom's side.
After that holiday, I said that would be the last time that ever happened.
Now that she is getting older she has to work holidays sometimes. I'll admit it, it stinks.
But I can choose to focus on that OR we can find a different way to celebrate the holiday and being thankful for her and our little family.
I'm going to send dinner with her for her and her co-workers who have to work because let's face it, the people we work with become our extended family. After she gets off work, hopefully we can just hang out at home, maybe watch a movie or a show together maybe have a piece of pie together.
When I think about it, it reminds me to be thankful for everyday whether it's a national holiday or not.
But for real... Please don't shop on thanksgiving or any other holiday so people can spend time with their families.
You probably don't need another cheap tv anyone or some crazy thing they marked up 150% so they can tell you they marked it down 75% and make you feel good about "saving" money and that you haven't wasted your hard earned money for a bunch of stuff you don't need anyway.
