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!!
