I am spending Thanksgiving break with my youngest daughter and her husband in San Diego. When I say "I", I mean "I" because my wonderful husband is not with me. He is doing what he terms "the daddy track", caring for our older daughter who had oral surgery today and watching over The New Boy while she recovers. I'm thankful that he is able to be there, caring for them both, even though we are not together on one of our favorite holidays. This year our family is scattered all around the world, but I am nevertheless thankful for each one of them.
Today on the day before Thanksgiving, we spent a quiet day, enjoying our small tasks, visiting friends, walking the dogs. Tomorrow after a 5K run at Balboa Park, we'll be joining several friends for an afternoon of fun, food, and pumpkin pie.
