I have been waiting to hear which family member is having Thanksgiving this year. I found out yesterday everyone is busy and can't! I live in an apartment and it can't hold my whole family! I could work it out to have it where I work! Unfortunely it is to late of notice and it is to far for my dad to travel! So I have no plans on that day! My sister has to work! My younger brother and his wife are picking up my nephew Dan at the airport! Dan's sister Randi might be in North Caroline and spend her Thanksgiving with her fiance! The others it is the inlaws! It would not be the first Thanksgiving alone but not in a very long time!

I'm sorry that you are not going to be with family for this holiday. I really don't care a lot for this holiday. I know it is important for a lot of people and if you are one of those people then I'm sorry that you are not spending it with your people. I work every Thanksgiving. I sometimes get a quick small bite to eat prior to going into work. I'm ok with it because I get paid time and a half and I need the money more than I need to eat a lot of food.

Do you have some friends that are having a thanksgiving meal? You might be able to go to their house.. Holidays are no fun alone. But if you do end up spending the day alone, I hope you make yourself something speical and try to enjoy your day.. It might feel hopeless; but if you want you can make the best of your situation.. It all depends on how you approach the situation.. Happy Thanksgiving my friend

I will ok on Thanksgiving by myself. I will get a pizza or something to eat that day. I will watch football. Then I will go out to the stable I work at, when needed, to do night feeding. So I will not be all alone! I am not going to get over dramatic about it!

Oh dear, that's such a shame blue. Are there friends you could go to or is it supposed to be family?
