Despite everything we do to pull Thanksgiving off without a hitch, something always goes wrong. Burnt rolls, dry turkey, family squabbles…The possibilities are endless. The best thing to do is make light of the situation and try to laugh about it.
This year, I had 7 house guests and the night before Thanksgiving, my dryer broke! Luckily, I washed all of the linens the day before and we haven’t run out of clean towels yet.
Also, on the big day, I opened a kitchen cupboard and discovered some uninvited guests. About 2 dozen ants were scoping out the cabinet, probably looking for something to bring to their Thanksgiving feast! Fortunately, only my brother saw this and I was able to keep his mouth shut under threat of great bodily harm. My guests were none the wiser…until, of course, they read this story in my newsletter.
