Each year, about a month before Thanksgiving, we host a Practice Thanksgiving. It is a fully involved Thanksgiving dinner with family, friends, and turkey with all the trimmings.
This year our Practice Thanksgiving was on the second weekend of October and due to the nature of the gathering, it required us to bring in extra dinning room chairs from their storage place in the garage.
Long after the last guest drove away and the last plate was washed, dried, and put away – some of the extra chairs remained. For you see, they had been claimed.
Who am I to tell the monkey and the cat to get off the chairs? Well, the monkey, maybe, but the cat – no. Leia, our sweet black kitty, takes her morning nap on one of the two chairs every day. And not always on the same chair, so I can not even bring myself to remove just one.
On the upside, at least we are ready in case an unexpected guest or two arrives and would like a place to sit.
That;s good that you prepared. Chairs are always issue at our house. Luckily kids love floor and many times we have picnic for kids because adults uses all chairs. Really need to by more and spare keep in loft.
I don’t know – picnics are pretty cool, even if they are indoors (or maybe especially if they are indoors.) The two chairs that Leia and Sock Monkey are using are folding chairs which is nice, as they take up less space when we do store them.
