While I am a nursing student (age 43), thankfully I am not a poor nursing student
Thanksgiving dinner...will be at my house but prepared by my Mom (68 but looks and acts as if she's MY age) with the traditional Thanksgiving foods as well as those my Italian family add to it (Thank you Mom!). I have the room in my house to accomodate my family, mom, my sister and her family as well as the people we have to dinner who have no family to have dinner with...while Mom has the SKILL and talent to cook said dinner
I always 'help' my mom prepare dinner the evening before but this year she told me while she would allow me in the kitchen while she prepared dinner, I was not allowed to help. She wanted me to sit at the dining room table and study/do school work while she got dinner ready. Gosh, I love my mom!
