Good grief, Susan, I feel worn out just reading about everything you have on your plate right now.

Concentrate on Thanksgiving dinner. You have so much for which to be thankful.

A mother who is still with you (mine died 34 years ago at age 52)
A daughter expecting a baby (this is an absolutely wonderful experience).
Friends coming to celebrate Thanksgiving and the upcoming birth.

Personally, I think you have done your part considering you are fixing the meal for Thanksgiving and hosting the baby shower. Throw in the piano recital for 35 students, and I say find a bottle (or case) of wine (if you imbibe) and a quiet corner in your home and take a little time for yourself.

Back to the shower, a small favor in the form of a candle, a fragrant bar of soap or a shower gel sounds wonderful to me. Talk to your daughter, I'm sure she doesn't expect you to wear yourself out trying to arrange three major events within a short time frame by yourself.

Be sure to ask your friends and family for help. If your daughter's mother-in-law is coming for both events, I bet she would be glad to help with the food and games for the shower.

Take good care of yourself. This the time of year to enjoy your blessings.
Oh No! Not another freaking learning experience!
