IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

Some of you will remember this from last year. Well, I'm feeling compelled to update it for this year:

TOP 10 THINGS LIKELY TO BE SAID BY MY MOTHER-IN-LAW ON THANKSGIVING

10. I got a really big turkey this year so we'd all have plenty of leftovers.

Oh, Carrie, I almost peed my pants. That sounds like my mother. Only she would also be talking about her doctor's visits and how she has no one to help her with her yard since her husband died and how NONE of us ever call her to see how we can help.

Your mother is my mother in law, except add one, "Last night, I was full of water," with a NY accent.

There are some things that you can always count on.

I'll think of you when I'm watching my Law & Order Marathon, curled up on the sofa with the dogs in a nice quiet house..........

Gee, sure wish I could be there...
HA!

My mother would always bring up the fact that she wished my brother and I were children again when we were all happy. (WTF???????)

The cooked turkey had less pain being roasted than I did.

Love you

Suzy
