Thanksgiving 2016

This year’s Thanksgiving was probably the least complicated in recent memory. I was able to work from home Wednesday and Friday, while Namita took off from Wednesday on. Wow, nice. Wednesday night / Thanksgiving… Eve (?), the kids went to karate,  we picked up Thanksgiving-related groceries, we ordered some biryani from an Indian restaurant, , and watched some TV.

On Thursday (actual Thanksgiving), we hung out at home and relaxed. In the afternoon, we all helped out with cooking up the 3 side dishes. By 4:30 or 5 pm, the side dishes were done, and we were finally dressed up. We piled into the car, and drove down to my sister’s house for dinner. We ended up staying until 11:30 pm, chatting, drinking, and cleaning up.

On Friday, I was working from home (as I mentioned), and the rest of the family relaxed around here. In the late evening, we corked up some more side dishes, then went over to our friend’s Lenny’s place for a post-Thanksgiving party, and to celebrate Lenny’s birthday. Everyone brought drinks, gifts, and Thanksgiving leftovers. Late night eating, drinking, and playing party games.

Saturday and Sunday were all about running errands, watching Moana, church, more home tasks, and decorating more of the house for Christmas.

Good weekend — couldn’t complain even if I wanted to.
