Staying home like normal. I am actually off on Wednesday for Thanksgiving Eve this year (unpaid of course) and going to the mall that day rather than say Friday or the weekend.

I've tried so hard to become friends with SIL.

Perhaps someday my Brother will figure out why less and less of his family members go to his family functions.
We all tried for the kids when they were younger, it's just crappy now.
I refuse to spend another Holiday in misery..

Same with us. We're staying home this year. We've had our fill of holiday hypocrisy and drama.

I'll be going out to dinner from 2 until 5. The combo to my gun safe is 11-35-14, the sterling is in the china cabinet and my cash stash is in the freezer. Sorry I'll be wearing my Rolex.

Please PM for my address. Have a great holiday!

We were with "the family" three weeks ago when my MIL passed away. They made oblique references to their Turkey Day plans in front of us but we weren't invited.

I'm not hurt by that kind of pettiness. I'll just have to think of something we can do on our own. I don't want to stay home. I'm home too much as it is.

A trip to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay sounds nice. Drive down on 101, return on 1. I've never really seen Carmel.

Or maybe Lake Tahoe.

Australia! Staying long enough not to hit the holiday travel crowds in either direction. The only problem is trying to eat a stuffed and roasted emu with only a few people.

We don't have that holiday here...thank God. Nice to have just a normal, pleasant weekend.

But, enjoy your trip.

We'll be in London and Paris thanksgiving week. Weather will be kinda gloomy in those places but we'll be in London and Paris, so who cares!

Contrary to popular belief, thanksgiving week is actually the best time to travel overseas, especially Europe, as the flights are cheaper and generally lighter - if not almost empty. We've been traveling overseas during thanksgiving week for years and love it.
