Yesterday went very well. We had dinner ready by 1:00. I ate, hung out for a little while, wrote a short post, and took a nap. Picked Tim up at Amtrak around 4 and brought him here for dinner. He brought most of a cake and truffles with him. More dessert.
Good news. Jim has a last minute 3 day pass. Too late for Thanksgiving but he started out early this morning and may be here by now. I haven't heard from him yet but I'm sure he'll turn up for leftovers. More apt to be tomorrow; he's going to be exhausted when he gets into town. I said if I'd known I would have switched our dinner to Friday or Saturday. He didn't know he could do it either until the last minute.
Today I did almost nothing. One of the advantages of older children, in spite of the turmoil, is they know how to open a refrigerator door, use the microwave, and rinse (even wash) a dish. One of the disadvantages if they how how to open a refrigerator, etc. They may have had pie for breakfast. Pie has milk and eggs and I'm sure pumpkin is nutritious. Anybody remember Bill Cosby's monologue about chocolate cake? Same thing.
I took another nap and I'll run over to Greyhound in a few minutes to pick up their mom. She was supposed to stay at her mother's until Sunday but she got homesick.
And then I'll do nothing some more.
It was a great day though and worth the effort. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
Thanks for the comments and take care everyone.
