She's a friend of a friend and a fellow expat Cheesehead who couldn't go home this year. She doesn't have cable or satellite TV. She'll go to a bar to watch games. Our mutual friend (whom I'm cat-sitting for this week) matched us up on Facebook.
I'm alone this year because Kroger's in Blacksburg thought it would be awesome to make the new kid/out-of-town student work on 9:30-6:00 Thanksgiving, thus causing him to miss not only dinner with his family (me as the rest of us are in WI) but he's also missing his first Thanksgiving with his future fiance
So if any of you are in Blacksburg and just HAVE to hit Kroger, look for the skinny, tall, dark wavy-haired & handsome guy stocking shelves (if he's wearing a name tag, his name is 6 letters long & starts with J) and feel up to it, tell him "Go Pack GO!"
Back to the story...
I made plenty of food so fDIL can take leftovers back to Shorty. So when I heard my FB friend didn't know where to go to watch the game, I told her to come on over!
So I'm happily stressing over getting everything right. Off to start peeling potatoes and mixing gravy. Veggies have to hit the oven by 10.
Have a happy day all
I'm not arguing, I'm just explaining why I'm right Violence doesn't end violence. It extends it. Break the cycle.
DH & I used to host what we called the Orphans Dinner for Turkey Day.
For all our friends & FOFs who couldn't or wouldn't go home.
It got to ba a tradition & was hosted by someone different every year.
Host supplied the turkey, guests brought sides.
Hope your Shorty can join you, the FDIL & your new friend for some leftovers!
