Well, a lot has happened since I posted last. You know how I get…..sometimes I just don’t feel like thinking or talking about my life. Other times, I think and talk WAY TOO MUCH about it.

A week before Thanksgiving, my Mom decided to cancel the tradition we’ve had since I’ve been born, in favor of driving to New York to spend it with my sister. Of course, I understand the reasoning behind it. My parents just adore my nieces. And because they had already missed Melly’s 7th birthday the week before, they felt they needed to be with them. It was very sad for me not having my family around. It just brought back all the feelings I have about being single and childless and knowing that one day, all of my holidays will be this way. It’s just plain depressing.

This was my first year cooking Thanksgiving dinner. My boyfriend had his brothers over (both of their parents passed away years ago), and I must say that I am extremely proud of myself. My dinner turned out absolutely wonderful, and it made me feel good that he, at least, had his family around. It was a really nice day for him and I feel like they all really enjoyed themselves.

Saturday was my 35th birthday. Needless to say, it turned out to be a disaster – one that I don’t feel like discussing. Sunday, my boyfriend left for a work trip out of town, and will be gone for about two weeks. Alone again…..

I really need to get a life.
On a positive note, Extreme Makeover Home Edition was in town recently to build a much-deserving family a new home. I volunteered my time and spent an evening in the freezing cold working on the job site. What an adventure that was!! I will be using this as my theme for this week’s HNT, along with a little back story about the family.

Anyway, I really hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

I worked on Thanksgiving. I didn't see one family member. As much of a loner as I can be, it's never easy to be without the family on the holidays.

My best to you.

My girls were with their mother (and I wasn't invited). I traveled to far far away land and spent it with someone else's family.

Sorry about the birthday (Happy belated).

That kicks ass that you volunteered to do that. I know what you mean. I am in a similar situation, and from the end of November until the end of December can just be pure hell. You're not alone. Stay strong. I have done lots of the volunteer stuff also, and it really helps out. Good luck.
