If you celebrated, how did you celebrate?

I had a really amazing Thanksgiving; I was especially grateful. See, my mom went into the hospital on Monday night with tightness in her chest, etc. and she'd already had an angioplasty, so she wasn't supposed to be experiencing any pain. Turns out, the stent they put in was too small, so they had to put a balloon in it to open it again. She got OUT of the hospital on Thanksgiving at like 4pm.

Now, my mom is an AMMMMMMMMAZING cook and turkey is one of the things she is best at. I always helped her marinate, etc. when I was a kid, but I'd NEVER cooked ANYTHING by myself (except maybe macaroni), but because she marinates the stuff the day before and she didn't get home till late, I had to do the ham and turkey COMPLETELY by myself, but it came out AMAZING. I mean, my mom is seriously like a fucking master chef (without the license) and my ham and turkey came out as good as hers. I was really proud and happy that my parents both enjoyed, particularly my mom.

Also, my dad is 100% disabled from the military (mentally and physically) and he pretty much locked himself in a room when I was 12 or 13 and the only time he comes out is for like doctor appointments (which he only goes to when he has no choice) and like when he has to be put in the hospital and shit. He hadn't really come out for holidays are anything like that in a LONG time. We had a "falling out" with my brother when he got married; I was about 14 years old, so before we'd have big family gatherings, etc. but after that, everything just kind of stopped and we were alone. This year, I guess my dad was happy that my mom was ok/home, so we ate at the table and listened to music (Neil Diamond) and my dad was telling jokes, etc. which tells me he was feeling relatively good (he also suffers from depression) and it reminded me of childhood (I have really good childhood memories, just of like going out with my dad and him telling stories and always listening to music, etc.), so it was really one of the simplest, but most amazing Thanksgivings I've ever had. :D

After that, I went for a walk on the strip with a friend, just to burn off some calories. Nothing special.
