| | Re: How to handle Thanksgiving without spouse
My first thanksgiving without my wife also, we're only separated right now but its not going well. I only spent the day with my parents, my grandma, my brother and his wife & kids. My grandma has Azlheimer's so she asked me where my wife was about 5 or 6 times. I just simply replied with "Shes with her family" but each time she asked was still a reminder to me of the reason why she wasn't with me.
It didn't help either that the Lions (my home team) got creamed by the Packers.
Overall it wasn't bad because I've become closer with my immediate family and they gives me plenty of opportunity to make it a more positive experience.
