Staying.

And somehow I managed to talk myself into cooking for family this year. I don't even know how that happened.

DH wants to go see his mother in Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving. I'd rather stay... we are moving next month and have so much to do between now and then! How can I convince him that we really shouldn't go without coming off as the evil daughter-in-law????

Even worse! Plus DH would have to drive down there to pick her up and then take her home.

(I know, I know, I sound positively horrid.)

Staying.
Wife's family coming in.
Parents and aunt from Bernardston, MA.
Brother's family and his MIL from OH, & FL.
It'll be a FULL house!

The good news is that 3 of the visitors are excellent cooks!
We supply the food, and they'll cook it!

hmmm....not sure you can gracefully get out of going then! Too bad she doesn't drive and could come help you pack. Maybe you could compromise with your husband, tell him you'll go but that you want to come back to Charlotte Saturday morning?

That might work. Thanks for the suggestions, loves!

OK, I will stop posting my Thanksgiving dilemmas now.
