I went to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving, as usual. This year, I was smart and prepared the desserts I was taking the two days earlier, so Thanksgiving morning I wasn’t running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get everything ready in time. I made chocolate banana cream pie, fruit cocktail cake, coconut cream pie, strawberry banana pie, and banana split pie. I’m the dessert queen of the family.
I’ve always been good at making desserts, spaghetti, and other common things like hamburgers, but I’ve cooked a lot since I’ve been too broke to eat out the past few months. I’m becoming adept at cooking dinner. I’m still not acclimated to cooking for just one person so I often have leftovers, but that’s okay, I just take them to work the next day. I usually have company on weekends, so I don’t cook for just one all the time.
Tori rode with me to Granny and Pawpa’s house. We were greeted by two of our cousins, Brad Jr. & Ed. We stayed outside jabbering with them for a bit, then I went into the house and started helping set everything out. It was a smaller than usual gathering because Jess, her bf, and Kayla showed up after almost everyone else left, Uncle Don and Aunt Nita didn’t show up at all.
I enjoyed myself despite awkward moments with my mother. Since she got out of the “hospital” a few months ago she has been very expressive and affectionate. It’s hard to get used to and feel like I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop around her. Overall, it was drama free – just the way I like it.
On this day..

I’m a thirty-something bipolar woman, an advanced tech agent with a pay tv provider, tax preparer for a local charity, current Tulsa inhabitant, and I’m one credit shy of an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts. I’m working on recovery from self-injury and working toward stabilizing my bipolar symptoms. Recovery is very important to me. I’ve been mostly single the past few years and plagued by a seemingly never-ending series of jackasses, assholes, and married men. I have no children of my own, but I have lots of nieces and nephews I love to spoil.
