Re: I Live alone and have no friends - Thanksgiving Style
This is a fact I deal with.

For example, I don't think I've said anything to another person since Saturday morning.

Anyway...I'm thinking of buying a turkey, cooking it, just for myself.

On Wednesday, I would make a cheesecake from scratch for myself.
Then on Thursday, I will
-Julienne some green beans, and make a mushroom gbean casserole.
-make some dinner rolls from those pull apart cardboard things
-Mike Evans mashed potatoes that I can microwave
-stuff and dress a smaller 5-7lbs Turkey and cook it in an electric roaster.

I bought a 12 dollar bottle of Hungarian white wine that I will drink.

I will watch football games alone.

I don't have much to give thanks for...but I believe in maintaining my dignity as I go to the grave.

You should go have dinner at the Salvation Army. You will meet all kinds of interesting people and have a good dinner. You might even make a friend.

Re: I Live alone and have no friends - Thanksgiving Style
Welcome to the club.
I live alone and have no friends either.
It does not mean I don’t enjoy the holidays by myself.
I always go a little above and beyond to treat my self to a multi course mini feast. Have leftovers for a few days.
Life is a Good, especially this time of year.
Sitting around the wood stove and pigging out.

Dark Winter my Ass.

I’ve got enough firewood to burn 24/7 for 6 months.

Happy Stuffed HolyDaze.

Stay Frosty and Warm All.

I could probably even afford a ButterBall if they were being recalled.

I also cashed in my 401k

So life is really really good at this juncture in.

I enjoyed my thanksgivings alone. My Christmas alone was also nice. I had a rat terrier though, he was where I was, ate what I ate, slept when I slept. He was a good friend to me.

Now I have a family so I’m basically maid and chef for the next 3 days. I’ll get no free time, but I had kids so I signed up for it.

Make the best of what you’ve got, peace and quiet are underrated when you live alone, enjoy it.

Cheers!

Re: I Live alone and have no friends - Thanksgiving Style
Don't feel sorry for yourself. There are a lot of people spending Thanksgiving alone. I am one of them. I turned down all the invites because I didn't want to travel. I have to travel next week for several days and needed to get some work done around the house since I have a short vacation.

I am roasting a turkey myself, with some steamed veggie and mashed potatoes and gravy. That's plenty for me. No biggy. I will take leftover turkey and some homemade rolls to some friends who love leftovers, but are going to their daughter's.

You might be home alone, but you have a home. You have your health. You have your mind. You have enough money to buy a turkey (so I am assuming you have a job). You have plenty to be thankful for.

Heck, if you need friends, you can find plenty of people to talk to here.

Re: I Live alone and have no friends - Thanksgiving Style
You're far from alone OP. I haven't celebrated the holidays in over a decade. My only family is my sister, who's 6yrs younger than me (and I moved out of the house when I was 14-so she was 8yrs when we last lived together, ie: we're not very close as far as a relationship) and now lives across the country from me.

My 2 kids are grown and ALSO live across the country from me. I moved to where I now live, 6yrs ago and I still don't have a car, but I DO have MS! Lol, smh, sigh. Not in a wheelchair YET, but can't walk farther than my kitchen without tripping (Drop Foot. My right foot BARELY lifts up to take a step, if I'm lucky), so I only go out once a month to pick up my scripts and back home it is!

Lol, I do have a cat that keeps me alive and smiling. Thankful for the "small things", ALWAYS. My motto is "Rich/poor, healthy/sick-NO ONE is guaranteed a tomorrow. Each night when you go to bed, make sure you made your day the BEST day that you could, because there are NO promises that there will be another!". And smile. Laughter is KEY to keeping your shit together ;).
