BIL called last night to invite us for Thanksgiving dinner (which here in Canada is this coming Monday) -- pre-empting my ambitions, outlined in my rant at Eastertime, to start making our own holiday plans & maybe go away somewhere for the weekend. At least he called us a week ahead & not at the last minute.
Besides, I really can't miss this one:
Our oldest nephew (who will be 21 in December) is bringing his girlfriend to meet us.
I am so not ready for this. How do parents do it??
