That's okay, my husband helped a lot and I can always take a nap if I get tired. Since I have cooked, I do not do dishes.
So anyway, today I have:
- brined the turkey
- chopped celery and onions for two kinds of stuffing
- chopped vegetables for veggies and dip
- made a pecan pie
- chopped the Brussels sprouts
- Set up beds for four guests after finding the sheets, pillows and blankets
- Went to Michaels (for a frame for the picture that should have gone on the wall weeks ago), the grocery store (for butter - you can't make Thanksgiving dinner with two sticks of butter, bagels and cream cheese), and the drugstore for my two prescriptions that I needed.
- Make the dip for veggies and dip
- Wash and trim the green beans
- Set up our pill boxes for the next week
- Order take out for dinner
- Make a second dinner for our house guests that will show up around 9pm.
So all that being said, I am exhausted (but don't tell my brother or husband or they will start telling me what to do all the time). I need to take care of our pill boxes and go to bed early. And sleep late.
With my health ailments (and even before then), I do not do well with not enough sleep. I need sleep, I need sleep, I need sleep. Last night I was so tired I fell asleep before taking my giant pile of nighttime pills. I did wake up in the middle of the night and took the important ones which won't mess up with my morning pills (some need to be spaced out).
But I digress. I do not want my health ailments to interfere with my enjoyment of Thanksgiving. I want to be able to enjoy spending time with everyone. After I sleep and take all my pills. And delegate more cooking stuff.
