Thanksgiving Plans Anyone?

I honestly don't understand how it can already be Thanksgiving. This year has really flown by! I feel like I'm still full from last year's tofurky dinner. I'm definitely not complaining though. There is nothing better than a short work week and an entire day dedicated to gorging yourself on pumpkin pie and good 'ol American Football. ...I guess I'm also looking forward to spending time with my friends and family.

I'm anticipating this Thanksgiving to be even more awkward than previous years. Reason being, my Aunt recently joined AA, which means my entire family has to be supportive and not drink alcoholic beverages around her. Lame, I know. I don't know if I have ever endured a holiday gathering with my entire family without my judgement being slightly impaired. My Uncle and I have a bet going that our family won't last more than 20 minutes without someone breaking my mother's lame rule and pouring themselves a glass or 10 of wine.

The cool part about going home for the holidays is that I will run into EVERYONE from my high school. Believe it or not, I'm not being sarcastic. I actually like to see people that I grew up with. It's something about being able to look into the eyes of the kid that always bullied you in high school and know that you have a much more successful and happy life than the fat, child-support owing, loser, druggy that he has turned into. It's going to be great!
