It occurs to me…

…that this year is the first Thanksgiving that I will spend away from my family since the mid-90s.

I wouldn’t be there regardless – if I had not been laid off from Citigroup, I would have been working that day. (The department I was in had to have people there every day, including weekends and holidays. We rotated through Saturdays, and then had weekends. The first year I was there, I had Labor Day stuck to me, which was a pain because I had originally planned to go to a gathering in Atlanta, Ga, that happens over Labor Day weekend; this would have been the second full year there, and I would have been stuck with Thanksgiving.)

I plan to call on Thursday, maybe see if I can get them on Facetime or iChat and talk to people, including my niece and nephews, just to say hello.

But yeah, it’s kind of interesting this year.
