Default Why I'm having Thanksgiving today!

I'm an idiot! Wish I could blame it on being druck, but no, I'm just stupid.

I went out earlier this week and bought all the fixen's for a great Thankgiving dinner. Turkey, squash, potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pie ingredients, the works (no yams though, I don't like 'em). Somehow, between not having a job, SWMBO being deployed, and me misreading the grocery store holiday hours sign, I became convinced that TODAY is Thanksgiving.

I started early, putting the turkey in to roast at 9am. Next the cranberry sauce (never made it from scratch before). Then whipping up some real cream for the pumpkin pies I would start in a few hours. All the potatoes and carrots chopped, the squash stuffing prepped, I decided to call my parents and wish them a happy Thanksgiving. Imagine my surprise when my mom couldn't figure out why I was calling in the morning on a Thursday.

Yeah, I'm an Idiot!

At least I won't forget to take the stuffing out of the turkey and serve it.

Terje

This is quite possibly the best story I've ever heard.

My neighbor thinks I will starve since my wife is not here. They invited me over to their house for Thanksgiving. Wasn't originally planning on it, but may as well now.

I'm also going to a potluck on Monday and will be taking half a turkey and a pie. You'd think I would have caught a clue-bird that the potluck is never after Thanksgiving.

That is just awesome. Pure genius. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I never thought of doing it twice. Thank you, you've inspired me.

Awesome.
