Okey doke so today I realized it was time for me to let go of giving thanks for not having had to host Turkey Day courtesy of my best bud Marla.  Truly the accidental housewifely way to enjoy what is by far my favorite holiday!  I mean think about it unlike Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s where the race and stress is on to shop ’til we drop, balance our hearts with our pocketbooks and not gain 10 pounds nor need to join AA post January 1.  Thanksgiving is a relatively stress free holiday …even if you’re cooking and hosting. Yes, there’s the prep and clean up but let’s be honest—unless you’re Martha Stewart turkey is turkey and the day’s focus is good ole food, fun, family, friends and football. We gather to celebrate being together, stuff our bird and ourselves, we’re given a bye to lie prone and be a couch potato, AND, we’re not considered rude when the tryptophan kicks in and we start to yawn!  My gosh, it’s almost like being a baby again when it was ok to eat, drink, smile, poop and sleep LOL! Do you agree?  Think about it. . . have you ever really heard someone say how exhausted or stressed they were from Thanksgiving? Or wonder how it got by them and that they didn’t have a chance to sit back and smell the turkey? Don’t think so unless perhaps you’re our favorite TV Land bigot Archie Bunker or Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David…Love to hear your thoughts and if you have an Archie or Larry types in your fam so blog with me here on LIVE FROM HYSTERIA LANE, tweet me, or facebook moi at
