Non-turkey thanksgiving

I like Josh's idea... since Thanksgiving is an American holiday, we should have a big juicy steak as our centered meal instead of turkey. I didn't exactly have a juicy steak, but lunch was good and filling. I had bourbon chicken, a beef enchilada, rice, mashed potatoes & gravy, salad, chicken fried steak (with more gravy) and then dessert (apple cobbler and ice cream). It was more than enough. Yes, they had turkey, but I guess I just wasn't in the mood. Usually I want turkey when it's home cooked with all the trimmings, but it's been a while since I've had a traditional Thanksgiving. This was our first Thanksgiving all alone but surprisingly, I wasn't bothered by it. It really is just another day.

I took the required after dinner nap and now I'm getting motivated to get some laundry done. I think I need a large coke though. I think I'll run to Sonic and get a coke and then get my butt in gear. I guess Tux (the cat) is doing o.k. The vet said he wouldn't call as long as things were stable so I guess no news is good news. I just hope she starts eating again. I guess it's time to get busy.

I can relate to the pet trauma right now. We found our cat, Chip that we have had for 7 years, dead in our pond yesterday. It was very traumatic on all of us.

I understand how both of you are feeling right now. I lost one of my cats on Thanksgiving 1990. It still hurts today to think about it.

How are you today?
