YO PEEPS-------THANKSGIVING

Mom agreed today that it would be better, (wiser? smarter?) not to take the quick trip to Utah for Thanksgiving dinner. Just too much car riding for such little time with you. You know how much she likes holidays, birthdays and gettogethers and this is going to be very hard on her. I would go if she insisted. She tears us thinking about she and I alone on Thursday. We are both so happy that the Phisters and Matt & B are on their trip and will see SoCal and stuff. We will just miss them for the week. I had all worked out in my mind how I would pretty much fix a small turdkey dinner and thought we could make it a fun day etc. Before I could tell her of my plans she asked if we could go to the Holliday Inn for their buffet. I said yes, although I think going out to eat would be sadder than eating at home together with music and our livestock. But, supprise, I told her that Justin Hays (a guy I work with) invited us to their house to join their big family dinner and mom brightened up and smiled and said that would be great. There will be about 20 of us at his house and he is roasting and deep frying turkeys and all we need to do is bring pickles and cool whip. So that will be a new experience for us. I guess I will have to pass on the Coronas. (standing joke with me and Justin) We'll see Twilight Wednesday night or Thursday and maybe another movie also. Soo, we will be okay. It would be nice if you think to give mom a call on the phone. Looking forward to Neil in December.

I think you guys made the wright decision. I am also glad that you found a solution that makes mom happier.
I think it is the cutest thing ever thinking of you making the dinner yourself.

Sue said...

I think you made the wright decision too dad. If you guys were able to stay a couple of nights that's one thing, but driving in and leaving the next day is just too much.

I too am really glad you've been invited to eat with someone. That makes me feel better. It does make me feel sad that no one else in the family is out there. We will definitely call you guys that day! For sure.

And although your email made me a little sad, it also made me laugh at parts. The highlights:

-eating at home together with music and livestock.

-you guys are bringing pickles and cool whip

And the best of all you were planning on fixing a small turdkey dinner. I don't know if you misspelled that on purpose or not, but it sure made me laugh!

Hope mom is doing okay!

Yeah! I misspelled on purpose. You know by now that I am just a rotten, dirty ol' guy. But an ol' guy that loves his peeps in Utah and elsewhere. Mom is still sick and I am worried about her. She went to work yesterday for the first time and only stayed till 1 pm. This morning she won't get out of bed and I made her a nice breakfast. She went to bed at 7:30 last night and it's past 9 now.
Thanks for understanding about the trip to Utah. Have a good time all you guys and you too...Matt and B and the phisters.

Maybe Mom should see a doctor. I'm worried about her.

Sue said...

I think mom should see a doctor too. She shouldn't be this sick for this long.

Yeah, definitely a doctor visit would be a good idea. Maybe she needs to get on some antibiotics or something. Glad you guys won't be eating alone, sorry all the plans didn't work out. That is so lame that her work is staying open on friday. Hope you guys have a fun day! We will be thinking about you. By the way, it is quite the gloomy day here in So Utah, lots of rain!

I asked her if she wanted to see a doctor about an hour ago. She croaked, "no I'm fine". I'll talk to her some more when she wakes up. It will be a week tomorrow that she has been sick. not good!!

Emily said...

Well, keep an eye on her dad and insist if she gets worse.

Happy Thanksgiving to you of the Wright Coven of Nerdlings, Peeps, bip sayers, and screwballs and pot pots, Mom says she "turned the corner" this morning. She got up and made waffles, dressed and is happy to go to our Thanksgiving dinner with the Hays family. I hope that is true and she doesn't relapse. Have a good, good day you all..... love, dad
