Greg's Guide To The Thanksgiving Long Weekend
I’m not a good cook, so don’t expect any food preparation tips here. I know nothing about making the best stuffing or how to cook a turkey properly, but here are some other ideas for the long weekend ahead from my noggin:
Relax – Sounds simple I know, but it’s not that easy. I have a hard time sitting still (I think it’s genetic). There is always something to do, dishes, take the dogs out, fix the deck, clean the basement… I’m not saying do nothing all weekend, just pick one or two things beyond the everyday stuff to do.
Detach – The long weekend for many means no work for three days. Why not limit online and phone time over the three days too. Notice I said limit, going cold turkey (get it thanksgiving, turkey) can do more harm than good.
Plan – Seems contrary to the first point but if you plan out how much time you need to get to where you need to go and what you need for what you won’t be stressed out when everything is closed or is packed with people.
Sleep In – I’m not scientist but sleeping in feels good.
Eat – It is Thanksgiving after all. It doesn’t matter what you have either. You don’t need the big turkey dinner. If that is your tradition though why not ask people you like to cook that are coming to bring something. Less kitchen time for you, and less dishes too.
That’s it, all I got. Have a great weekend!
