Home sick/homesick

My little guy is feeling under the weather today, so he's home from school. Right now, he's watching The Clone Wars movie on dvd so I've got a little quiet time.

I spent most of the morning cleaning the house and now I'm going to settle in and write a little if I can. But I admit I'm a little distracted. My little guy is home sick, but I'm a little homesick. It happens this time of year if I know we're not going to spend Thanksgiving with my extended family. And now it's official. Thanksgiving will just be the three of us this year. We were invited to a friend's house for the big meal, but my husband doesn't really want to go. I'm itching to plan my menu, even though I know most of the food will go to waste.

For now, I'm ignoring the call of my cookbooks and trying to concentrate on work. Anybody else having a small Thanksgiving this year? Are there any traditions that your family has?

We have a very small Thanksgiving at my house every year. We're a little family but we always have a great, relaxing day and I have the added plus of loving to COOK. I've memorized the old family recipes by heart and added some new ones. I still pull out the old recipes though because my daughter helps me now so I teach her to cook and we play music and do the kitchen thing together. I love it.

Sounds like you have a wonderful holiday to look forward to, Regina. :) I love cooking the big meal too.

My sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews come to my house for Easter every year and I cook up a storm. I bake everybody's favorite cake from scratch (red velvet) and I do a big ham with all the trimmings. I LOVE it. My son says he wants to help me cook Thanksgiving dinner this year, and I'm really looking forward to that. :)
