Well, it’s Turkey time again and getting together with family and friends and giving thanks for all that we have. This is the good side of the holiday, the bad side is the traffic.
Lordy, the traffic!! Christmas isn’t so bad as it’s spread out. Some people travel the weekend before, Christmas Eve, the day of or weekend after and so on but Thanksgiving is that day period. That means everyone hits the roads today if they are heading out of town.
And as if all the traffic isn’t enough we seem to have a huge amount of construction going on around here and I bet you do too. They got to get it in before the bad weather hits. There are orange barrels and flashing lights and lanes blending at snail paces that really slow things even more.
While we’re on the subject, don’t you hate those drivers who take the closed lane, knowing it’s closed and they squeeze in waaaaaaay up ahead in line. I think we should be allowed to shoot them with paintballs or something. UGH!!
I have my daughter coming in from NYC. I am over the moon excited but I know the airport will be a holy mess and traffic on the expressway will be a nightmare. Still I’m over the moon happy to see her again.
So what about you? Are you traveling? Having someone you love and miss coming in? Having someone you’d rather not see coming in ‘cause you couldn’t think of a we to say NO?
No matter what, have a great day and Happy Thanksgiving!
I am so thankful for all of you.
