(Scout is ready for Thanksgiving)
I had a FABULOUS Thanksgiving with my in-laws. Our dinner was delicious and the company has been great. I hadn't seen my brother in law or sister in law in almost a year (CRAZY), so it was really nice to see them. We also celebrated my Mother in Law's birthday and my birthday by having Wine Cake! YUM!!

Jason, Scout, and I did the Turkey Trot (5K) this morning and had a great time doing it. It was COLD and HILLY, but I think Scout is a great little racer. He was working hard at being the front of the pack.....which was tough on me! *winks* Our family came out to cheer us on! Which was AWESOME!!

I did call my parents today as well. I'm sad about my relationship with my parents. I'm not sure what happened or why it happened but we don't really have a relationship anymore. Like I said I'm sad about it, but after trying to find ways to reconcile with them and finding them not receptive, I think I might be ready to give up. You never want to give up on your family, but what do you do when they don't want to be a part of your life?

I'm thankful though that I have supportive, amazing people in my life. That I have a great circle of friends that act like a family to me. I have many brother's, sister's, Mom's and Dad's! I'm so lucky!

  1. I'm so sorry about what's going on with your parents. You know I understand more than most. It may take a while...a very long while...but I'm hopeful they will come around. As you know I'm trying to have a relationship with my sister again, but it's not really a relationship.
    Neither my sister nor my father got in touch with me to see how my procedure went. Family, gotta love em...or maybe not.

    I hope things work out the way you want them to. But if they don't, remember, you are a wonderful person and many people are so happy and privileged to have you in their "family".
