Not traveling: Um, duh. We were going to go to MN to see my husband's dad and fam but we decided to go to Costa Rica with them in March instead. Costa Rica in March or MN in the dead of winter? It was a tough call but I think we made the right decision. Although, I would love to have Thanksgiving dinner with them, I just can't bear the thought of it being 12 degrees outside. But most importantly? The thought of dealing with all of the other idiot travelers this holiday makes me stabby. And if I got stuck behind one of those assholes boycotting the screening process of the TSA I'd throw a 26-year-old sized hissy fit. And that, my friends, is not pretty.

I always make an appearance at their house, but this year I might just sneak in, steal the soup, and be on my way. Mmmm soup.
Dinner with my family: This year, we aren't doing the tour. We are popping in at my best friend's house (for the aforementioned soup) which is blocks from my dad's house, and we might do dessert at another family member's house, but that.is.it. We are not going to every single parent's house. We have a lot of parents, and most of them are here, and all of them always want to see us on every holiday. But this year
and MOST importantly...
