Hello everyone! How are you doing today? All tuckered out from Black Friday shopping? I didn't do any of that stuff, I kind of wanting to pick up a game or 2 on Steam, but ehh not really interested. I rather just save some money for a new computer that I can actually play video games on! So, yesterday we had our tiny Thanksgiving dinner. It was just me, my mom and my grandma. It seems like our meals are just getting smaller and smaller by the year. Like, I didn't even get full this year. It was still good, still grateful, but I just feel bad that we cannot afford meals like other people that last for like 2 weeks. We had ham instead of turkey, I don't like turkey, it is only good when it is deli turkey. So we had ham, some veggies, and mashed potatoes. That was really it. and we could all only have 2 slices of ham each because it was a tiny ham. And 1 of our 2 slices is saved for leftovers. After that, we played some board games. We played Aggravation, which we all won once. I won the first game and then my mom did. Then we switched over to play Sorry which...really isn't that fun of a game as I remember. But I still won. And then we played two more rounds of Aggravation which my mom won and then my grandma finally won the last game. And for dessert, we had cookies that my grandma made and she didn't put a slice of bread with them to keep them soft, so they were really hard. Good times, good times. It was a little tense at times because I don't have the greatest relationship with my grandma, but it was better than bickering with 25 racists, homophobic, relatives. But when I was talking about something, it was I guess slightly political, my mom asked a question and I answered it and so my mom and I were having a conversation about it and my grandma goes, "Do you always talk about politics around the dinner table?" and then I was afraid to talk...because then I mentioned something about my favorite stream, Cryaotic, and she was like, "Why do you talk about this person, you don't even know him?" And I just put on my, "I am just not going to talk about anything and put on my chill look and not let anything bother me!" And so I did. It was still an alright evening, not the best, could have been way worse, has been way worse, so oh well! Hope everyone else had a good evening, even if you did or did not celebrate Thanksgiving!

I'm glad you kept away from tension, with Grandma there. Cryaotic a person you don't even know? LOL Playing Aggravation and Sorry was a good idea, thank heavens Grandma finally won a game! Your dinner sounds good, we love ham. Hard cookies, that's O.K., also:)
