This year we skipped our annual trip to the water park.
Instead, we spent the morning delivering Thanksgiving meals to families in need.
We also walked Willie, our neighbor’s dog, three times today – Ben in the morning, Aaron midday, and Sam in the evening. The kids are earning money this vacation dog walking.
In the afternoon, we stuffed envelopes. Tomorrow we will send out Jack’s Bar Mitzvah invites.
And in the evening, we had Thanksgiving dinner.
It was a very low key kind of day. Many times I thought about the things I had to do but then I realized everything was closed, so it would have to wait.
Adam has been working crazy hours recently, many mornings I wake up to hear him skirting out of the bed at 3 or 4 in the morning. Having a full day off was like a week’s vacation for him.
I was grateful for things big and small. I was very grateful for some pressure free time for all of us. Grateful to be together spending the day with each other. I was also grateful I found the match for my favorite glove, the cashmere lined leather gloves my sister got me for my birthday one year. Grateful to see how serious and committed all of the kids were for their new job, dog walking.
Also, I thought you might enjoy seeing Sam and Aaron’s take on “How to Cook a Turkey”, which was sent home from school yesterday.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my loyal readers! Hope you had a very grateful day.Pin It
