Not A Thankfulness Blog

TODAY’S BREW: Eggnog. Yeah, I drink eggnog.

By Julie

I don’t read most of those thankfulness posts. I’ll put that right out there. I love Thanksgiving for a lot of reasons, but I am a huge proponent of being thankful every damn day.

Did you know that if you write down one thing you’re thankful for every night before you go to sleep you not only sleep better, but you live longer? I KNOW, RIGHT?

And I think it’s never too early to start asking your kids what they’re thankful for. I do this every night with Bennett, and it’s one of our favorite things to do. Sam, the three year old, is a little more apt to be thankful for say, “I want cheese crackers!” but I like to have the language kicking around, you know?

But I’m not here to be preachy. I AM HERE TO LIST SEVERAL THINGS THAT PLEASE ME ABOUT TURKEY DAY.

  1. TURKEY. So much of it. All the dark meat. I will hiss at anyone who comes near the dark meat.
  2. THE MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE. If you didn’t watch this growing up, you are not ‘Murican.
  3. MIMOSAS. They start at dawn and finish around BLAHAHAHA REMEMBER THAT TIME MR. BELVEDERE FELL DOWN THE STAIRS OH MY GOD WHAT DAY IS THIS?!
  4. PAJAMAS. Never gonna stop.
  5. KIDS AND HUSBAND IN PAJAMAS. Because it is best enjoyed together.
  6. PIE.
  7. THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE YOU COULD POSSIBLY HAVE TO BE, I.E. WORK ON THIS DAY OF ALL DAYS.
  8. TURKEY SANDWICHES.
  9. WATCHING YOUR EXTENDED FAMILY MAKE A MESS. NOT AT YOUR HOUSE. Whatever, if you say, “but Julie, your house is already a mess.” You don’t know me!
  10. LITTLE KID THANKSGIVING PILGRIM AND INDIAN OUTFITS AND HAND TURKEYS. You’re not human if you don’t love that shit.

I look greatly forward, also to another Hutchings Family Event. There are a couple this year, but the one I look forward to most is at Tim’s Uncle Mike’s house. Things that you may see at one of these events include:

  1. A SPONGE HOLDER CERAMIC FROG SMOKING A CIGAR.
  2. BLOOD ON THE SUGAR CONTAINER. None of us knows why.
  3. SAID UNCLE IN A THREE PIECE SUIT WITH A POCKET WATCH.
  4. MORE BEER THAN FOOD, BUT PROBABLY NOT.
  5. THE POSSIBLE ABANDONMENT OF ANY HUSBAND BY THEIR WIVES IN THE WEE HOURS. This happens. I have not done it, but we’ve only been married 12 years.

There will also be incredible smells, and great amounts of laughs and kids playing, and hugging and it makes me the happiest ever.

 

Tell me, folks, tell me not what you are thankful for, but tell me what you’re looking forward to this Thanksgiving. I look forward to my husband having a forced day off. Now, you. GO, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

  1. There is like 12 hours of football on tomorrow and I’m going to watch all 12 of them.

    I get to cook for someone else. I’m always excited about that.

    Pajamas. Because WHAT UP.

    I don’t work in retail anymore and I don’t have to even think about any of the grossness happening in stores this weekend.

  2. Whaa! We don’t have it here! But what I shall enjoy is all you ‘Muricans’ posts, like this one. Then at Christmas, which starts on the 20th December for us due to extended family, I shall bore you all to death with how much food I’ve eaten and, being Scottish, with how much alcohol I’ve drunk. 🙂

  3. I’m totally looking forward to the fact that since we had no plans with extended family and neither did our best friends, we are all getting together at my house. Starting at 9am, we’re having a day filled with family, best friends, tons of food, silliness, loads of alcohol, and we’re doing it all in pajamas because we’re cool like that.

    Life is good.

  4. I love eggnog.

    That’s going on the grocery list.

  5. Thanks for telling me about your Thanksgivings!

So what do you think?
