Thanksgiving

I was so happy last night when Brian invited Ted, my FIL and I to his Thanksgiving dinner. I would really like to go, but we’re not for two reasons. Ted’s dad is inherintly uncomfortable in social situations, even if they only include his own family. I know that he would rather it just be Ted, himself and me. This will be his first Thanksgiving without my MIL and I want to make it as easy for him as I can. I know that this too is Brian’s first ANYTHING without Amanda, but I already made plans with FIL and all. Secondly, and I think more importantly, I highly doubt that Amanda would appreciate me being at her table for the first Thanksgiving at her home. That table was so important to her and having a real Thanksgiving in her home was her dream. She can’t be there in life and I wouldn’t want to marr that dream for her. I would love to go, but I just can’t.

A More Detailed Halloween Post

 

What a night. Ted and I walked to Jen’s. I was in full Eeyore glory. People honked and waved at us. I began to skip. It was so nice and warm. The Eeyore costume was SO hot inside it. Ugh. So, we got to Jen’s, Steve was there. We helped her get ready for the kids. Our plan: to throw bags of candy off the balcony for the kids! Fun. They loved it. I accidentally bounced a kit-kat bar off the back of some little boy’s head. Oops… We gave him extra candy for it though and he was happy and unhurt. Soon, Emily, Nick and the Lillys came by… Then Mandy came over. Ashley even made a short appearance. She had a party to go to with her girlfriend. After the kids were done trick-or-treating, we all decided (well, Emily, Nick, Jenny, Steve and I, Mick showed up there too.) to go to Trixie’s to watch Emily play. We stayed there to watch the entertainment of the night and then off to the bar we went. 4 Johnny Vegas’ and 2 shots of tequila later. I was drunk. I made friends with an old, drunk, gay guy named Johnny and he was dressed as Scooby-doo. He was awesome and he made me his Fag Hag. I loved it. After, we all went to Coney Island and ate and laughed and poked fun at all of the skanky girls who were pretty much dressed the same… You know, nurse with thigh highs and a short skirt, cheerleader with thigh highs and a short skirt, baseball player with thigh highs and a short skirt, vampire with thigh highs and a short skirt. It was hilarious. The only difference was color and pattern. Don’t these girls realize that they all look the same? Whatever. I had fun as did everyone else. It was the best Halloween ever!

Words, while still half asleep…

So I made the world’s best cinnamon rolls last night. Yummy.

So, since Jen wasn’t feeling too good, I took her a few. We talked a lot. Mostly about death and the fact that we are both going to have a tough Christmas. I have to contend with the fact that my MIL isn’t here. There are certain things that she does for Christmas and no one else was allowed to. She put up the Christmas Village, there were several ornaments that she put up herself. Who is going to do that this year? Will dad even put up the tree? If so, will HER ornaments go up or stay in the boxes? Will he even attempt to put up the village. If he does, will he get it wrong? I will definitely notice if he doesn’t. Jen is spending this Christmas, for the first time, without her brother. That’s very significant. He’s always been home for Christmas and I really feel for her. We talked about our own mortality and the mortality of the people closest to us. It was just one of those nights. BUT… She is coming to my house for Thanksgiving… This is the first time ever. We (Jenny, Emily Rose and I) will be making a turkey, tofurkey, green bean casserole, green beans and spaetzels, the best (and most fattening) mashed potatoes in the effing world, sweet potatoes, acorn squash, corn, stuffing, warm butter rolls, sauteed wild mushrooms with spinach, cheesy potatoes augratin, garlic bread, egg nog, holiday mimosas, pumpkin pie, apple pie and gooey cinnamon rolls. We will be cooking for HOURS! But I am looking forward to it. Today, I have to clean the house and wash the floors. Let’s see if that happens mmm’okay?
