A Place to Sit
Every year, I think things will change. This year will be different. We're usually plus or minus a few people from the year before. But, alas, this year will be no different from many. Yep, it's true. I'm still stuck at the "kids" table on Thanksgiving. My sisters lovingly informed me that it's because I'm not married and blahbitty blah blah. Great. Why does that have anything to do with it? If I were married, what would we do? Draw straws? Base it on age? Being married doesn't automatically creat more space or chairs at the table. So, here I am at 25, sitting with the 14, 15, and 17 year olds, feeding the drooling toddlers and babies. Maybe someday the "kids table" will just morph into the "hip and young" table and the "adult table" will turn into the retirement table. Haa haa! Oh, I do love my family. I guess we're just getting to large to share a meal that requires sitting together! :) Wish me better luck for next year!
