Home for the holidays?

I’m excited about seeing family for Thanksgiving; Alpha is already home, making gumbo for supper.  HWTFM has gone to pick up Beta… they’re browsing McKay’s for a Calc book (for next semester I hope, as opposed to just now thinking about this semester’s finals).

Gamma’s gone to swim practice.  Delta is busy playing Wii Fit.  Uncle PJ and Cousin A are hopefully on their way… Cousin A said yesterday that they expected to be here "Wednesday afternoon."  Given the family history, that means "sometime before Black Friday."   My husband’s family are all sort of impervious to time; they don’t wear watches, they don’t feel compelled to call if they’re going to be late.  Even days late.

They have actually missed Thanksgiving dinner before, so I’m prepared to fix a second round if necessary.

My parents have gone to pick up my sister K, and bring her home for Thanksgiving.  I would have expected them to be back by now, but so far, nothing.  My mother shares the tardiness thing with my husband, I guess.

I’m just thankful that I’m going to be surrounded by people that I love (and still like).
