Unfortunate + here we go!

Thanksgiving is TOMORROW!

I am giving thanks that my dad is okay right now. Last night he was driving home from work and a tar truck spilled tar all over the PA Turnpike (40 miles worth of it) and my dad drove through it, unknowingly. The tar got stuck and wrapped around all of his tires until he couldn’t move his car at all. This happened to tons of other people driving to see their family or just traveling home from work. My dad’s tires are ruined and we’re not sure about the undercarriage of the car, but he is lucky because some cars ended up being totaled; it was crazy. My mom and I wanted to pick him up, but we couldn’t because we would have got stuck too. How unfortunate. He made it home late last night and I’m so glad! Here is a picture of one of his tires:

Tar all over the tire :/


As I said in my last post, I am going to be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my boy’s family. Today I baked for hours. I wanted to have most of the baking done so that the turkey can cook all day.

I baked an apple pie.

I baked a pumpkin pie.

I baked chocolate chip cookies.

Tuesday night I did a “practice round” of mashed potatoes.

They came out good 😉

Other things I did to prep in advance: set the table, cut up onions and celery for the stuffing, prepped the turkey (took out the giblets + seasoned and oiled it), and made a list of what time I will put things in the oven, etc. for tomorrow.

I feel pretty ready, I guess :p … we’ll see!


If I don’t post tomorrow, I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving with family, friends, and good food! <333333333

  4. So glad your dad is okay. That sounds like a crazy tar accident and I’m glad he didn’t get hurt even though the car damage stinks :(.
