Family is coming….whether I’m ready or not!

Yes. It’s true. I know you are shocked.Thanksgiving is a mere 10 days away. It will be the first Thanksgiving in 21 years that my husband’s parents have joined us too. No PRESSURE. REALLY. I am a confident cook. Not a Top Chef contestant, but I am fully capable and I know most all the cooking terms and I can follow a recipe to a “T”. That being said, I will admit to being anxious. It’s a lot to entertain folks that you have not spoken to in over 5 years. My husband has. Of course. Just not me. That’s another story for another post. Just suffice it to say that my in-laws are pretty much strangers to me. So there is that. I have been planning my menu, shopping for items that I can purchase ahead, clearing out guest room closets and drawers, doing some deep cleaning in the house and preparing my two teenage sons for the monumental visit from their paternal grandparents.I am hoping it is a going to be a fresh start and that all goes smoothly. I love my husband and I want him to have a good relationship with his parents. Wish me luck!
