We headed down to visit family for Thanksgiving. It took a while to get there, but we had a couple of really good days. We had a great time and some nice food with my wife’s family on Wednesday. It was great to see everyone there again, since it has been several months since we were down there. Traveling and making sure we have the hotel room set and everything is always stressful, but it was good once we did it.
Thursday we stopped in at my parents’ house for my family dinner. They live closer, so we were able to stop in there on the way back home. It was great, and I got to see most of my nieces and nephews and their children. It was loud, since my parents’ house isn’t that big and we had a lot of people stuffed in there, but it was fun.
Of course now comes the bad part: I ate WAY too much at these two dinners. Between all the potatoes, the pie, and especially the turkey I just feel like I’m about to explode. I do this every year. Actually, I usually do this twice; once at Thanksgiving and once at Christmas. I have to do better when Christmas comes around this time. It’s just not worth the trouble afterwards, even if I love the meals and the desserts. I just need to eat less of them.
Easier said than done, right?
Anyway, I guess I better get started on losing all the weight I gained the past two days. Wish me luck.
Only 20 days until The Last Jedi. ***Squeee!***
