Well, it’s finally here, the day that marks the beginning of Christmas, my favorite time of year. I started early but now it’s official, now it’s officially the happiest time of the year and we can all be jolly. There’s lights everywhere, there’s lights, music, friends, family and food, very good food.
Today I’m thankful for my family, my friends and my dogs, for everyone being happy and healthy and just for having them in my life. I’m also very thankful for my health and still being seizure free, even while I had a couple of falls earlier this month.
But after saying all that, it’s not Thanksgiving without a delicious turkey, arroz con gandules (tradition in Puerto Rico), potatoes and flan and a chocolate dessert.
In preparation to all that, I made the choice to wear stretchy pants today which allowed me to eat everything I was served.
I didn’t go back for seconds but I had so much food on that plate that my cousin bet me I couldn’t finish it. I proved her wrong and ate it all.
It worked, I had a big plate of food and didn’t feel bad about it. It was a great Thanksgiving, until now. The power just went out but looking on the bright side, we have a generator so everything is just fine. Great day!!!
