    Happy Thanks Giving Ready & Katie.
    Katie I drove to Northern Manitoba to spend TG with my parents, sisters & their families. BUT my son was unable to come due to his work schedule. He works in a restaurant. His Dad told me Wed. that he was planning on going to the lake. My son knew nothing about this, and commented it would have been nice if they could have had some sort of TG dinner together. So I called his Dad, and told him TG was a time when families got together. If Cliff couldn't come with me, then his Dad should be spending it with him. I told him I had talked to his father 2 wks earlier and they didn't have plans, but to call 4 days prior to TG, they probably made some by now. I told him to call them the next morning. The next morning, I'm driving to Manitoba and I call my in-laws...they haven't connected with my ex yet. They're thinking I'm hosting & inviting them, but I have to clarify that no I'm on my way to Manitoba, but my son would like to do something with them. So my father-in-law says, "Okay, I understand, no problem S, we'll make plans and take it from here...thank you for letting us know. Have a great TG & say hi to your family" I was stunned that my ex would not think about spending TG with our son. Not only that, our daughter was arriving in Samoa and would be calling on Saturday. He would have missed her call! She would have been disappointed. I wondered..."what was he thinking?"

    Thank you Katiegrl!

    Am so sorry to hear you spent Thanksgiving alone :(!

    I went to my brother's lovely new cottage down in Prince Edward County and as you know, the weather was spectacular! Couldn't have ordered a more perfect weekend of weather, the cottage was amazing, very relaxing and comfortable, was happy to be looking out at the water once again on the Bay of Quinte. Went down with my mom and son, and my brother's partner's family came for dinner on Sunday so there were 10 of us. It was one of the best Thanksgiving's I can remember.

    I sure hope you found something wonderful to do on this fantastically warm weekend and that you had a nice time.

    Happy Thanksgiving Ready. At the risk of sounding pathetic, I'm spending Thanksgiving alone; my Toronto sister is doing something with her son and I was not invited and the rest of my family hasn't made any group plans to get together. That's the trouble with being single in a family of people who also have OTHER families to celebrate holidays with. I don't know their inlaws well, so I'm seldom invited.

    I think I'll take the day and walk along the beach and maybe have a chicken dinner at Swiss Chalet. I'd volunteer at the Food Bank but they were swamped with volunteers this Thanksgiving and don't need anyboy else.

    Any other Toronto area peeps alone this weekend? Wanna get together?
