It’s that time of year when everyone is beginning to decorate for the holidays and excitedly go over their plans for the season. And me? It’s probably best summed up by a recent conversation between my mom and me.
Mom: So, what are we doing for Thanksgiving?
Me: Pretending it’s not Thanksgiving.
This time of year is so family-oriented and it still reminds me of the permanent rift that separates my mom and me from the rest of the family.
Still, I do love watching little kids during this time and remembering things I used to do for the holidays when I was their age. Maybe when I have my own family I’ll enjoy this time of year again.
