The annual feasting ritual that is American Thanksgiving is upon us. Cooking schedules have been made, trips and extra trips and extra emergency trips to the store have been executed. This year marks a first-- because Jakki is working, she will have to sleep all day to prepare for her graveyard shift tonight. The downside of that is no magical Sweet Potato Corn Bread Stuffing with Greens. Emelie is on point for most of fixings this year, so we are looking forward to sampling her wares. Another first is Mom blogging the whole procedure on their [new blog](http://patrickrandi.blogspot.com/2008/11/thanksgiving.html). It's been over five years since this blog began, and it's finally starting to rub off on the late-adopters.
This year, I'm thankful that everyone [EDIT: everyone _in our time zone_] can be together so easily, and that everyone is healthy. How about you?
