Call Me Crazy

I'm very excited about my two day school week since we are off for Thanksgiving Break beginning Wednesday.

However, I could never just lay back and enjoy a short week. Oh No. I have to go and do something completely crazy. Like have 50 people in my little classroom to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. To top it off, who put herself in charge of the turkey to feed those 50 people. Uh yeah. That would be me! Thank goodness I have a husband who pulls through for me when I decide to do these things. He went out last night and bought a 23lb turkey and it is cooking in the oven as we speak. It smells delicious!!

At least everybody is bringing in a side dish or dessert to share so there should be plenty of food. At least macaroni and cheese since about half of the family's volunteered to bring that in. Don't worry I did call a few of them to see if they would consider bringing something in.

So think of me tomorrow. Sitting in a room with 20 students and 30 classroom visitors surrounded by turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, collard greens, green beans, macaroni and cheese, corn, rolls, pretzel salad, fruit salad, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoe pie, apple pie...

Thank goodness I don't have a Weight Watchers meeting on Thursday night!!

Hope you all have a Happy Monday!!


  1. Sounds yummy! Crazy busy, but fun. I will just save up to eat all the good stuff on Thanksgiving day! And then I'll be having leftovers for a couple of days, too.

  2. Yeah, crazy....I've done the same thing over the years. In the classroom newsletter it sounds like so much fun, and then all of a sudden reality kicks in.....hope it all goes smoothly!!


Go ahead...tell me like it is!
