As a recent hire at my office, I don’t have many vacation days. Not to mention that tickets home cost a good bit.
So this will be my first Thanksgiving without my family. My sister, who’s fortunate enough to be home for this holiday, says that being away from family for Thanksgiving is a tough but interesting experience.
Luckily, I have been invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with my boyfriend and his generous family. I’m looking forward to watching the Macy’s parade from one of the nearby offices with them, followed by a lovely meal, football, and some quality FaceTime with my beautiful family.
It’s a difficult time to be away from them, but seeing them on the computer screen will have to hold me over until Christmas.
