Happy Thanksgiving!

What I Ate Wednesday turned into What I COOKED Wednesday.

WE had tickets to a hockey game last night and on top of that, Michael decided he wanted to leave early and go to The Cheesecake Factory on the way.  So everything that could be cooked or prepped yesterday had to get done. It went like this:

1. Pumpkin Pie – Yup, and the recipe made enough for TWO pies so some lucky in-law family is taking one of them home

2. Green Bean Casserole – Yup, just add the onions to the top and throw it in the oven

3. Sweet Potato Casserole – Yup, the topping is also already made.  Just throw it on top and in the oven.

4.  Stuffing – Yup, all made and ready to be stuffed in the turkey.

5. Apple Crumb Pie – Yup, and the new apple peeler/corer/slicer KICKS ASS!  Might use it to peel the potatoes today, but seems like overkill

6. Mop the floors – Yup, got that done too

7.  Chocolate dipping – Yup, got through some animal crackers and pretzels.

My run for this morning was “canceled” as my running buddy came down with a cold.  But I will still head out in a bit with the dogs.  Anything I can do to tire them out is a plus.  And the neighbors will be here at 11:00 for the parade, dog show and Bloody Mary’s.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday!

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
