Thanksgiving is coming and while the number of Covid cases are increasing, friends and I have been talking about our plans.
What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
So, this year the kids are going to the ex’s family for Thanksgiving and while I’m fine with giving up the Thanksgiving feast every other year, I’m a concerned this year due to Covid. I’m trying not to worry about it, but, four separate household families getting together, including one from out of state makes me nervous because my kids are involved. I feel like it’s a recipe for disaster. Because how can you social distance in a house for hours? Not well.
As for me, I’m staying home. My brother and his family invited me as they do every year, but I’m choosing to stay home. They have been meeting with friends, his kids have been hanging out with their friends who just came home from college and he’s been away with friends the last two weekends. It just feels like it’s too many possible germs.
So, it’ll be a quiet Thanksgiving alone at home, waiting for my kids to return home. I’ve spent holidays alone before so this isn’t the first and I’m not a huge fan of turkey, so I’ll make myself something else. But it’s a little sad. Perhaps I’ll start decorating for Christmas!
I have a few friends who will be home alone too so we’ve decided to check in with each other and have a glass of wine together via phone/zoom.
What are you doing???
