I’ll admit, when I was trying to come up with something unique for this week’s prompt, I was stuck… I mean we have a regular old dining room table. I think we may have pulled it off a job site (one of the perks of working for a construction company). We had intended to sand it down and refinish it before we set it up when we moved into our current home (three and a half years ago now)… but that never happened.
So, there’s not even tons of old-family history. We have so far eaten exactly one extended-family Thanksgiving dinner around this table, and no Christmas dinners that I recall.
But! We’ve eaten at this table three times a day for the last three and a half years. That works out to roughly 3600 times…. that’s a lot of meals together.
We’ve celebrated approximately 16 birthdays around this table. That’s a lot of celebrations.
It’s used for school and drawing. And bill paying and hot chocolate drinking (with marshmallows). Not old-family history. But new-family history, our family history.
