After you have watched the Macy’s parade, thought of the local mission, coats for kids, or whichever charity that really hits the advertising hard from mid November on, begin to think of yourself. It’s “me” time. Don’t lose too much on the needy. They are taken care of. Give back to yourself. Think of “you”.
Focus on your kids, your wife, your pets, your car, your hobbies, your sock drawer. Not necessarily in that order.
Focus on your own need for meditation and solitude. Lock yourself in a room and watch football or “read” your favorite skin mag.
Write a letter to someone you don’t know. Move money from savings to checking. Do all those things you neglect to do February through November. This is your time. Enjoy it while it lasts. It won’t last long.
Now that we have Obama-elect and a democratic dominated congress, don’t worry about the recently foreclosed or the below poverty income earners. Our government will take care of them. The rest of us can relax and concentrate on our own well being.

Thanksgiving is about family…err football. Lost my head. It’s time for family to sit around and watch football and ignore each other. Don’t talk, just sit. SHHHHHH…. and enjoy the ramblings of John Madden’s mindless geriatric explanations of how to move the football 10 yards at a time.
Thanksgiving is about 4 day weekends, friday sales, and putting up the decorations to the sounds of Bing Crosby.
Just sit back and enjoy. Monday will be here before you know it.
