@Mithrandir - I would love to just stay home or do nothing or go out of town. However, my wife has her idea of what the holidays are supposed to be. I do my smile and nod for my kids. I remember one Thanksgiving that her family wanted to go to some buffet place for dinner. I could not eat a single thing there for diet reasons. I told her that I was not going to go and spend money for something that I could not eat and was not going to enjoy. I stayed home and had a sandwich. I loved it. Best Thanksgiving ever. It would have been better if my family was there, but we can't have everything.

One day when everyone else grows up, maybe we call all sit down to sandwiches, beer, exchange a thoughtful present and laugh. That would be a great holiday.
