I did pretty well with not eating too much yesterday, which is a lesson learned from many Thanksgiving feasts gone by...The past two years I've only taken that which I like (skipping dressing that comes out of the turkey, sweet potatoes, rolls - unless they are crescent rolls made from scratch - brussells sprouts, things like that.) I hate that feeling I get when I'm so full I can barely breathe right. Plus I started the day with a migraine and took a Maxalt which made me mellow enough to want to nap instead of eating. Not that I napped...
I try to take around a tablespoon of everything I do like, and only a small slice of turkey, and still my plate is loaded. I love mashed potatoes and those I load up on. Talk about too much food! But it was great! Kudos to my sister-in-law and mother-in-law for creating the majority of the food, it was GREAT! We missed some family members, wish you could've been there!
I've got my mom and her boyfriend visiting from SLC this weekend, staying at my sister's house. They are coming over sometime this morning. All my siblings know about my blog, but my parents don't, and I'm not so sure I want them to. My dad is a staunch Mormon man, and he may not appreciate reading my thoughts about Mormonism here. My mom is a lot more open and no longer participating in the Mormon faith, but I have a feeling that I may someday need to rant about childhood experiences and things I say could hurt her, which is something I don't want to do. When I'm at my sarcastic best, sometimes her feelings get hurt, and I would rather avoid the drama that could create.
But a part of me knows that at some point, one of my siblings will spill the blog to my mom, so why not just let her know about it now? She's probably going to feel hurt I didn't tell her before.
Whatever....It may be a moot point anyway. With the way my boys here tease me (translate: MOCK ME) about blogging, I wouldn't put it past them to dog me about it while she's here, and then I'll have to tell her I have a blog. Then she'll want to read it from start to finish. Hey, maybe it'll be a favor to her, as she'll want to start her own blog, and she'll enjoy it as much as I do!
Wait, this just occurred to me...maybe she already HAS HER OWN BLOG, and now I'm hurt because she didn't tell ME!
