Just a few NURSELY tips to pass along.
MY TOP TEN TIPS TO HELP YOU HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING DAY!
(Of course all of the occupants in the vehicle are seat-belted in and the driver is NOT allowed to text)
#9 Think of that knife as a carving tool. It carves....stuff.
#8 Take a baby aspirin everyday. (I'm serious)
It's good for your heart.
#7 If you haven't been off the couch for the last 12 months and think that you are up to playing football with the nephews and grandsons after eating massive amounts of dinner....think again.
#6 On that same note...if there is a lot of heavy snow coming down and you think you want to go out and shovel the driveway cuz-you-need-to-have-a-break-from-the-noise-and-chaos inside....think again.
#5 Chew your food 1000 times before swallowing. (you heard me right)
#4 The stove is hot. No double-dog dares to see how long you can keep your hand on it.
#3 Consider the lid of the green bean can a weapon. You know what I'm talking about don't ya?
#2 Have some immodium, tylenol, earache medicine, Motrin AND gas X on hand. Most stores are closed and the ER has them, but you will probably have a long wait because of all the other above mentioned STUFF. And your need for gas X doesn't trump someone who only chewed their food 999 times, no matter how differently you feel about it.
AND THE #1 NURSELY TIP FOR THANKSGIVING DAY.....
.....Keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot.
Get that turkey off the bone and in the fridge before the dishes get cleared.
I'll be working all day on Thanksgiving.
I don't wanna see ya there!
And while I'm thinking about the things that I'm grateful for.
It was freezing cold here last night.
My feet are always cold.
