Maybe we should just all get together for the holiday, what say?  ;D

This year my youngest (h.s. senior, age 18) wants to spend Thanksgiving with his gf (only 3 hours away, her family has invited me, but I have my aging mother).    My 2nd son and his wife (1 hour away) I am sure will be too busy.  My 1st son and wife and far far away. 

When I was a single mother and it was my boys' holiday with their dads, I used to have no problem finding fun and enjoyable things to do on the holidays.  I know I will this year -- I just have to work at not falling in to the Rockwell / Hallmark myth that everyone we see is having a joyous holiday.

Ha ha, one of my friends told me about a televison show where the son was whining about having to go to the relative's for Thanksgiving -- he wanted to spend it at home and have his own friends over.  The father frowned and said something like, "You can't do that.  This is a special season, the holidays -- we don't spend them with people we love, it's a time to spend with Family!" 

Made me laugh!

AnnieB - I'm in the same boat, we used to have huge family gatherings for the holidays.  But now we have really no one to spend them with.  I guess unless I spend it with people who don't like me.
