For only the second time in my forty years of life, I won't be going home for Thanksgiving. Every year I have either gone home to Seminole or my family and I have gone somewhere but we have always been together.

Last year was the first year I didn't spend Thanksgiving with my family. I did not spend it with anyone at all. I actually stayed at home by myself. I had just tested negative for covid the week before and only one of my cousins was going home so the family wasn't going to eat until 6pm at night and I really didn't want to drive over that late and turn around and drive back that late at night, so I stayed home.

This year however is a different story. This year I will be spending Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family, something I have I have always wanted to do but they live so far away and I have always had to work the day after Thanksgiving, so I could never go. My dad's entire family gets together for Thanksgiving. All of his brothers and sisters and all of my cousins are there, even some distant relatives. I was expressing to my mom the other day how much I wanted to go this year and after looking into it, I decided to go.  I am so excited. I have seen my Nanny in 4 years and since she is now 90 I can't wait to see her. The best part is, she has no idea I am coming, it will be a complete surprise. I am so excited. I hope all of you have wonderful Thanksgiving.
