Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone. Although I had previously mentioned that I wasn't feeling good, I was still hoping I would be able to enjoy my day without any problems. For the most part, my stomach cooperated....until the end of the day, at least. I'm definitely thankful for that!

We made it to our annual breakfast. We never go anywhere fancy. Our town doesn't offer much in breakfast choices so we opted to go to Carrow's this year. The food was good too! Poor Paul had his eggs a little too over easy though. Yuk!

Then Sabrina was so excited cause since we were in my parent's area, she wanted us to drop her off early of there. I called my mom and she was just delighted to have her. So we made our way there to drop Sabrina off and then headed home so that I could hard-boil some eggs to make deviled eggs to bring to my parent's house later. We also were hoping to stop off at Kmart to get the game Catch Phrase to play over there but Kmart was having a "buy one, get one free" deal on that game and other games so unfortunately, they were sold out.

Paul and I made our way over my parent's house a few hours later. I must say, it's nice to have a few hours to ourselves, just my hubby and I. That's something we know NOTHING about. For that I am thankful!

At my parent's house, it was the usual people we have each year since our family is small and most of them live far away anyways. I am grateful that I was finally able to see my Grandma, who I've been wanting to see but because I'm not real good at dealing with old people and the fact that she forgets who I am makes it hard for me. She is 94 years old and has dementia and each time I see her, it seems to be getting worse. Some of the things she does is cute and funny, but on the other hand it's a problem that we need to worry about as we don't know how much longer she will be with us as this disease takes a hold of her. At one point, she thought I was my dad's wife..HUH?! Uhhhh....NO! Then she was hoping her dad would give her money to get her hair done. Poor grandma. :o(

We had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner with some alterations for my mom and I since we are on Weight Watchers. Dinner was fabulous and I feel I did pretty good for the day. I treated myself a little but didn't over-indulge as I would normally. I left the table with a smidge over my comfort zone which I feel is something to once again, be thankful for! My weight-in is Thursday and since I missed it this past week due to Thanksgiving, let see how good I really did do ;o)

So, here we are. It's Sunday and since every year I like to make a Thanksgiving meal myself for the three of us, that's what I am doing as we speak. The turkey is in the oven stuffed with stuffing and I have the hard-boiled eggs sitting on the counter waiting to be cracked and prepared into deviled eggs. Oh the yumminess! I trust myself and the fact that I will be a good girl and not over-indulge.......once again!

Sorry I don't have any pictures to share. With being a total photography happy person, I was in such a hurry that day that I forgot my camera. Lets say it together now........DUH! ;0)

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It is a time to be thankful and I hope we can all carry this great holiday into our daily lives and remember all that we are thankful for. I have to say, I thank God for all he has given to me and all the family and friends I have that love me! I am also thankful for all of you and the warmth in all your comments! Big HUGS to you all!!
