Big Holiday Fun.

Happy Thanksgiving. Itís that time of year when all Americanís get together to give thanks for everything theyíve received over the last year. As some of you may recall I had a horrible experience with my family at Thanksgiving last year and vowed that I was going to do my own thing this year. Around September my in-laws advise my wife they want to come to town to spend Thanksgiving with us. We, meaning me as I do 95% of the cooking for special occasions, are not prepared to cook for that many people. Fortunately my mother says she wants us to come over to her house, none of my aunts, uncles or cousins are coming. We told my mother that Ktrevaís Mom and Grandparents are coming to town, so my mother told us we could all go over to her house.

This sounds like itís a good deal right? Nope, my in-laws donít like me. Comments that have been made to me are along the lines of Iím controlling Ktreva, holding her back, keeping her from seeing her family, not providing well for the family, etc. My favorite was five years ago when one of them told me, ďWe just donít like youĒ. Ktreva doesnít believe any of this, because they are all nice to me when sheís with in earshot, but not when sheís not around. They also make comments to her that leads her to believe that they like me.

So far this Thanksgiving is going to be dealing with my Mother, who thinks sheís the boyís mother and that Iím still 16. My sister who thinks Iím too hard on the boys. My in-laws that hate me and my father, who will be my only ally that may help me out.

So this Thanksgiving Iím thankful for Jack Danielís. It calms my stomach, my nerves and in the right moderation will keep my brain just soaked enough to not care.

On a lighter note, I have Thanksgiving presents for every one in the extended entry.

Umm... thanks I think. *grin*

Dude! Next year it's time to lay it out with the families... your family gets one holiday for themselves alone. Either Thanksgiving or Christmas... it's your family day for the 4 of you and then you get at least one where you can kick back and relax without needing the help of Jack. We always did Thanksgiving.

Anyhow, I hope the day goes better than you are expecting. Or at least that Jack helps out a bit.
