talkin' turkey

I used to have a recurring nightmare that it was just before midnight on Christmas Eve and I had forgotten to shop.  This fear plagues me each year to the point that I start my Christmas shopping way in advance.  I may not get it all done until a few days before, but if something suddenly happened to me, I would at least have the bulk of the work done. 

Unfortunately, this productive fear does not apply to Thanksgiving. 

I have come to the sudden realization that Thanksgiving is just over two days away and I still do not have a turkey.  I have not shopped at all, in fact.  So there will be no turkey, no mashed potatoes, no pumpkin pie, or anything else unless I get to the store first thing tomorrow.  I have no idea how this holiday has crept up on me so completely.  I knew it was coming.  But I had been so busy Christmas shopping that I no idea it was already here!

But all is not yet lost.  I still have time.  I just need to get up early and head to the grocery store to scoop up whatever they have.  Maybe I’ll even get some turkey flavored doggy treats too!

Until the next time…Thanksgiving here we come!
