A Christmas Carol Thanksgiving


Today I am alone for Thanksgiving and I can't help but equate my situation to "A Christmas Carol." It's not because I am a Scrooge, it's the being by myself part. My family went to Arizona but I had to stay back in LA because of work yesterday. I could have driven over there to meet everyone, but with the traffic it wouldn't really be worth it--I'd be driving more than visiting. Anyways, I am a pescetarian so I don't eat turkey. My 2009 new year's resolution was to become a vegetarian, but I am a cheater and now eat fish...sorry off topic! Point is, I don't eat turkey, hate stuffing, pie, yams, and cranberry sauce (I know I am a weirdo!) so I am not missing out in the food department.

Back to a Christmas Carol. I don't ever want to end up alone, it's sad to be alone on a holiday. I am lucky to have friends who have invited me to join them, but I don't want to intrude on their families. The fact that they even offered means a lot to me. I am going to sit alone and feel sorry for myself instead today haha! I am actually content right now watching a First 48 marathon, because nothing says Thanksgiving like murder mysteries! I need to turn this stuff off! I did get a chance to bake cookies for the first time ever, though. They may have been Pillsbury and I may have only had to put them in the oven, but nonetheless it's a big accomplishment for me =)

Tomorrow my family comes home so I plan on going to my parents house and enjoying the rest of the weekend.

Sorry for the sentimental post! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, and to my non-American readers, happy Saturday!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a couple of comments. I'm sorry you had to spend Thanksgiving alone, holidays are meant to be shared otherwise we sit home and feel bad for ourselves! On a bright note, though, at least you weren't at work like I was!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and those cookies you made - think of them as the first cookies of the Christmas season which I believe we are now officially in! Oh dear ...
