So. How'd it go? (Thanksgiving)
So. How'd it go? (Thanksgiving)
How'd your holiday go? 

Happy holiday? Uneventful, or marred by a drunk relative's angry tirades?
Any of you atheists make a scene and do some ranting of your own? 
Dry or juicy bird?

Inquiring minds want to know. So, let's hear it.

Didn't go at all. Isn't celebrated where I live. But thanks for finally letting me in on when it actually is. It helps to attach a date to all the American turkey movies.

Almost ready for dessert.

Almost. By almost I mean my stomach only hurts a little.

"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

Nursing twisted ankle, so I stayed home. Former in-law sent some Thanksgiving dinner by. 
Ate a few bites and I'm still alive. Might eat some more later (probably not).

Uneventful and fairly relaxing. Not bad.
RE: So. How'd it go? (Thanksgiving)
I made dinner with the help of one child. He washed dishes and helped with the food while my other half and youngest son went hunting. They came back late, ate then promptly fell asleep leaving me to wash up dishes and try to figure out where all the leftovers are going. No apologies from either. I am done.

I am not doing one fucking thing for anyone for christmas because no one in my house apparently gives enough of a crap to bother to pitch in and help out unless I scream and beg. So.... I'm not exerting any more of my time or energy on people who don't give a rats ass.

It went pretty well. We had a medium sized get together, about 19 people counting me, my husband, and our five girls. We played a little touch football because it was warm, which helped burn off some calories. And I'm going to bed soon to get up early tomorrow and go shopping.

We didn't make a scene, but one of our youngest two almost did! My father-in-law stopped by over dinner, and started talking about how we should say a blessing, and how people should say a blessing after every meal. One of the youngest says to him. The convo went a bit like this:

"You should thank god for everything."
"Well, god gave us all this great food."
"No he didn't. Daddy did!"
"Well, your dad wouldn't have been able to make that food if he didn't have good health."
"Then we'd be eating McDonalds instead."
"It's good to thank god for everything, because only through him is anything possible."
"That's stupid! I can hop on one foot without anybody's help!" (she then went and hopped around the house on one foot)

(This wasn't nearly as bad as when we visited one of my husband's cousins earlier this year, and everyone was talking. We were getting ready to leave, and another of my husband's cousins was trying to convince her brother to make his grandson do his schoolwork. And the other cousin just says "If he doesn't graduate from high school, God will provide." And our daughter, same one from before, says "Maybe God should have provided him a brain then!")

Our turkey was very juicy. But it took longer to cook than we thought because apparently our new stove cooks differently from the old one. Which we should have realized when my husband made the pumpkin pies yesterday, and they took a lot longer to cook. So we had our Thanksgiving meal a bit later than we thought we would.

Hope everyone else had a good Thanksgiving! I think we can all be thankful without being thankful to anyone in particular.

Pretty sharp...and so adorable.
Makes a mama proud, yes?
