Thanksgiving 2008

I'm finally posting our Thanksgiving pictures.

The truth: My basement did NOT get fully organized before Thanksgiving. I did not recover any chairs, make any new curtains, or even take a shower before the first guests arrived. (I DID eventually take a shower, but after the first group showed up. It was embarrassing to be caught in my pink striped pajamas, especially when I realized that my shirt was inside out. Oh well...take me as I am, I guess.)

The other truth: It didn't matter. Perfection is not a prerequisite for gratitude. I was surrounded by my little family and some of my wonderful extended family, we ate delicious (I mean De-Li-Cious) food, we laughed, we relaxed, we loved.

So Happy Thanksgiving, a week late. I'm still eating like it's Thanksgiving, and I'm plumping up daily. Time to renew my commitment to exercise and eating right. Well, not right, but right-er.

Now that's what a Thanksgiving table should look like! Beautiful! I'll take you as you are any time! I'm glad you had a wonderful time with your fam!

Didn't you know? Imperfection is the "new" perfection! Your Thanksgiving looks wonderful.

I thought your basement looked pretty good. . . . .

Wowwww. I'm going to be like you someday. (The beautiful dinner part anyway - I've already got imperfection down pat.)
