Happy Thanksgiving!

Instead of pigging out silly on turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie, I'm catching up on laundry and watching E! (I only get to watch E! when my husband works his shifts). It is easy to forget it is a holiday when you keep busy.

It is so weird living overseas during traditional American holidays, especially the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. It is almost offensive that other countries don't recognize our holidays, proving that I am the atypical me-me-me American. Of course, not that Greeks need even MORE holidays. They already get quite a few.

Anyway, happy Thanksgiving to those that are celebrating.

Happy Thanksgiving to you in THESS. We went to the American College of Greece in Athens. Very nice except for the chain smokers.

So I'm thinking as it's Thanksgiving in the US, you guys will be giving a lot of thought to the things you are thankful for...

I'm sure number one on the list is...

"I am thankful I am lucky enough to live in Greece!"

:-)

Happy Thanksgiving, mel.

Eh, I'm not American, but I'm still thankful to be living in Greece.

I'm not American either but I'm thankful for having a Greek American friend who cooked a delicious thanksgiving meal for us all!
