I'll Be Home for Thanksgiving

I wouldn't go out on a limb and say that Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday by any means. Is it one of my favorites? Yes. Is it my absolute favorite? No. But this year, all that may be changing because this year I get to go home for Thanksgiving. 

I kind of last minute decided it was time for a short visit home about two weeks before Thanksgiving. I got my schedule for the week and saw that I had two days off. The only thing that I needed to make my dream a reality was to get Friday off as well. As soon as I woke up in the morning, I posted on our Facebook page of shift trade/give away that I was trying to give away a super short morning shift on that Friday and would love someone to take it, if they could. Not even five minutes later a girl had commented that she could take my shift. I was elated. 

After I put the shift trade in, the next thing to do was tell my parents. My mom didn't think it was a good idea, because I'd be exhausted from traveling so much to actually enjoy my time there. However my dad saw things a little differently. He was excited I was coming home but not so excited that I was going to drive. It's only a 10-12 hour (max) drive home so I don't think it's that bad. My dad doesn't quite see it like that though -- he's more worried about the crazy drivers and my safety. So what does he do? He told me he'd buy me a plane ticket home if I could find a cheap one. 

Somehow, god only knows, I managed to find a super cheap flight home and my dad told me to book it on the spot. It's nearly impossible to find flights that go from Orlando --> New Orleans so to find one within the price range I was looking for, I was ecstatic. Plus it's on Southwest which means that I am able to bring bags there/home with me, which means that I can actually bring stuff that I forgot at home back to my apartment with me. 

I'm so happy to see my family again, and spend a little bit of time with them. The holidays are always stressful, but I'm glad that going home will make them a little bit easier.
