I can't even really call this a vent because I think I did this to myself. My sister and her family decided some time ago that they would like to come out here for Thanksgiving to see the new baby. They are staying at a hotel, my sister and I are really close, my children love her children, etc. So, I have no problem with this and am looking forward to it. Dh, the kids and I usually have Thanksgiving at my mom and dad's - about 2 hours down the road. All along we've joked about just where we'll have it this year because of baby. Mom likes to cook the meal, has done it at my house before, seemed flexible about making the meal at my house. Over the past couple weeks, mom has seemed a little.....off again. She had that trouble over the summer (doctors are still conflicted over what actually happened - possibly a 4 day long seizure of some kind). And now we think that she's feeling a lot of stress (for whatever reason) about making Thanksgiving.
So, being the peacemaker and the fixer that I am, I opened my mouth and said that it would be no trouble for me to do some of it. Why did I do this? I haven't even had my baby yet - good grief, I could BE in labor that weekend.
Anyway, I think I'll be making up our family dinner roll recipe today and freezing them and figuring whatever else I can get done.
If all else fails, there's always McDonalds right?
