To Grandmother's House We Go

Comments (5)

Tomorrow, I leave for Tennessee to visit my grandparents. This will be the first time in seven years or so that my family has actually left the Chicagoland area for the Thanksgiving holiday. Usually, we celebrate with my dad's side of the family, where I get to explain to my cousins that Thomas Jefferson was not the first president. Or "the light bulb guy." Fun times.

I'm really looking forward to this weekend, even though it could mean disastrous things for my NaBloPoMo streak. I get to hang out with my parents, my brother, and my grandparents in the coziest house on the planet. It's literally over the river and through the woods, and it is always fully stocked with cookies and pies and a warm fire. My mom and my grandma will play Scrabble while my brother and I eat pancakes for breakfast. My dad will pass on computer knowledge to my grandpa in return for book recommendations and other mysterious "grandfatherly wisdom." At some point, the girls will head out for a day of shopping while the boys go shoot arrows into the woods.

If I ever decide to come back, remind me to tell you about the time I cried myself out of a getting a detention. Or the time that Comic Sans made me cry in church. Or any other story that tickles your fancy. Otherwise, have a great Thanksgiving weekend, y'all!

Enjoy your trip to these back stretches in the hills.

I hope finding a way to post every day doesn't prove too difficult. Just get someone you trust to transcribe for you or something. The option of getting someone you don't trust of course is straight out.

Shooting arrows in the woods? Why haven't I thought of that??

Seriously. Sounds like a great time. Enjoy your turkey day. :)

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Also, I'm really interested in hearing how a font made you cry!

Don't tell me how to have my Thanksgiving weekend! You're not my dad!

Enjoy your cookies and pies. Bring back a non-rhubarb one for the rest of the world. ;)

Jace of Fuse! - I would totally ask someone to post for me while I'm away, but that would require 1) bothering to call someone and 2) speaking coherently and 3) trusting people. Sadly, that's way more effort than poking little buttons on my cell phone.

Thursday's Child - Apparently, they shoot arrows at bales of hay, but I only ever see the boys shooting arrows into the woods.

jamie - You'd be surprised how emotional I get about fonts. It's more than a little embarrassing at times.

Tez - My grandma had apple, blackberry, and pumpkin pies available. No rhubarb for me. Plenty of pie for you. :(
