I just endured 5 years AND 3 extended visits since departing in May(!) around my extended family in Massachusetts.
AND I've just spent the last 6 months living in a *section* of my MIL's house - with the rest of my inlaws close by as well.
So I figured
A couple of weeks ago I called up my cousin in NJ and essentially invited my family to her Thanksgiving dinner.
Now this is one stupid holiday, way too close to Christmas, centered around an inedible bird, and is a travel-nightmare.
Nonetheless, with my cousin accepting my self-invitation....we're going to face-off with insanity and spend 3 hours in traffic, trying to get across Manhattan and over the GW Bridge tomorrow....just so everyone can get a healthy break *from me* on this holiday.
I do hope my inlaws and outlaws are thankful!
