Is anyone doing "nothing" for Thanksgiving?

I'm cooking, but no one is coming over. All extended family are going to their inlaws, or travelling. So, I'm stuck looking at the same people as always, about you?

  • That's what we're doing, too, just me and my husband and our kids. My mom's going out to Phoenix to visit my brother and sister and everyone on my husband's side of the family has other plans. I don't really mind, though, since it'll be relaxing.

  • I chose not to travel this year, so we are ordering in from Cracker Barrel and just hanging around. Preparing for my Friday shopping extravaganza.

  • We too are alone this Thanksgiving, but I am cooking a "feast" for just the two of us. Since we are traveling for Christmas we decided to stay home for Thanksgiving.

  • This will be our first Thanksgiving without my husband, who died in April. We're not traveling for Thanksgiving. I don't want to be surrounded by happy families.
    I bought the turkey and the other groceries. But I just can't imagine even going through the motions. I'll put the bird in the fridge to thaw. If I feel up to it, we'll do Thanksgiving dinner. If not, we won't. But even if we do? We'll be doing pretty much nothing. Certainly nothing like previous Thanksgivings, that's for sure.
