I was home alone for last 2 Thanksgiving days. This year, I will be home with 2 guests. I am so looking forward to relax and eat. There will be a lot of food. I will be doing most of the cooking (including turkey). I plan to impress the guests with my cooking skill. I am excited and nervous. Wish me luck~!
I am sorry if some of you are home alone or if you have to go to work. I've been there many times. :(
The day after Thanksgiving, I will put on a Santa hat... I plan to wear the Santa Hat until Christmas. (I bought 2 hats, just in case the first one would get dirty, etc...)
I am thankful that I have an able body to go to work, exercise, and play. I hope to become financially stable so I can give back to the society. For now, I can use financial help. :(
God bless everyone.
Enjoy the magic moment.
