Special Needs Blog Hop: Thankgsiving Memory

Special Needs Blog Hop Thursday! This week's topic: Thanksgiving Memory


Hmmmm. Thanksgiving memories, huh? Well, that's actually a little difficult, since I have a really bad memory, but mostly because (brace yourselves, you're about to be SHOCKED) I tend to be pretty drunk at these things. This will be our 10th Thanksgiving since we bought this house, and I love to make a big deal and invite over as many people as I can, although I'm usually limited by table space and the number of chairs I have (Lizzie, if you're reading this, I'm probably going to need to borrow those folding chairs my mom gave you) and every year I start drinking as soon as the turkey goes into the oven! I think that's why my cousins like coming over so much. But, my memory of each year is essentially the same: Chaos. Both my kids are incapable of sitting at a table for more than 10 minutes, no matter how good the food is, and my family is loud and Jewish so there's lots of talking and yelling and arguing, and kids running all around and trying to interrupt the conversation, and 10 different conversations going in all different directions, and I usually don't even get to sit down for more than 30 seconds because I'm always having to jump up and get something for somebody and I never seem to actually eat any of the turkey, just the stuffing, and then I get really full, and then after "the grownups" (my parents) go home we play Rock Band until 3:00am.

It's awesome. Yay! Only one more week!!

As long as everyone has fun, that's a good thing. My daughter has a hard time sitting still to eat. She likes to spend her time playing with her cousins.

Jen said...

My son doesn't like to sit still, or sit at the table much for that matter. But like Tammy says as long as everyone is having fun then we get to rock it our way in our house :D Happy Thanksgiving for next week:) Jen (visiting from SN bloghop)

Does indeed sound awesome.

I'd be drunk most of the day if I were hosting it too... I do Christmas Eve here, and am hammered by the time the first guest arrives.

Have a spectacularly drunk and fun time!

Loud Jewish gatherings around too much food FTW!!

Lynn said...

What's FTW? Dani G is such a PITA with all of her ferkakta acronyms.

Dani G said...

Lynn, FTW is for the win. And STFU is another acronym you might be interested in :)

Nice yiddish.... for a shiksa!

We'll be rocking Beatles Rock Band. And if we still don't have a Wii microphone by then, our neighbours will be giving thanks that they can't hear my singing.

Kids, mommy is drunk and can't help you right now, you're just going to have to fight until one of you passes out.
