Planes, Trains, Automobiles and the Extended Family Reunions

A few helpful hints from Wicked H:

1) It’s only once a year, you can get through it; yes even the most obnoxious relative and/or in-law.

2) They may promise you that the calories and carbs have been removed, they are lying to make you eat. Do what I do, save the carb points for the alcohol.

3) If it lands on your plate, you should really eat it. Unless of course you can feed it to the dog covertly under the table. Be creative!

4) It can’t be all bad, find at least one thing to be thankful for.

Where ever your journey takes you this Thanksgiving, I wish you safe and happy trails.

OK, so you'll be over at 2:00 PM with a cherry pie, a peach pie, and an apple pie! We'll be waiting for you. Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family.

Karina said...

Great advice. Especially number 2, because then it's even EASIER to deal with whatever drama may arise.

I'm just thankful that turkey apparently waxes.

Scarily, my word confirmation was jihzmat. I think that's the official term for the guy who mops up at an adult theater.

Everyone enjoy the famdamily and give thanks that you're not Lions fans.

That picture is hilarious! Great advice to boot!

I missed out on personally wishing you a happy ... but my guess is, with your relatives (as with mine) it was, to say the least, challenging.
