We are staying home and no one is visiting us.
No having to pile everyone into the car to drive 45 minutes to visit family. No having to cook a huge ass meal from scratch only to have to clean up a huge ass mess when everyone leaves.
This year it will just be us lounging around and not having to deal with crazy people, annoying people or any people at all. I am even going totally against my usual no processed crap and will be preparing Stove Top Stuffing and canned gravy. It is a far cry from the delicious crock pot stuffing and homemade gravy I usually make but this mama needs a darn break. I am still going to make homemade mashed potatoes (the boxed stuff is nasty) and a turkey (I throw it in my huge Le Creuset Dutch Oven that is the love of my life) so I am not going totally trailer on Thanksgiving.
I am so excited. And just think- if we move far away (Arizona may be a possibility along with Georgia) we can always have calm relaxing holidays! The thought just makes me downright giddy.
