Last year, just before Thanksgiving we all got sick. I think that it's a tradition actually, for me at least, to get sick on Thanksgiving. I know there was a year at some point way back when that I didn't get sick, but it's been so long ago. Not wanting to break that tradition, we are cancelling Thanksgiving again this year.
I'm totally bummed. I know that Vickie, Jon's mom, understands, but man I feel bad. We are truly sick, no more fevers, but we have a nasty cough lingering that just hurts and makes us feel miserable. I know this is something that we cannot control, but come on...it would be nice to get a break.
I'll still make a nice dinner and we'll still do family things, but we just won't have our extended family over, which bums me out. Not to mention that I don't get to try Vickie's Oatmeal cake...and I was so looking forward to that!
Maybe I'll just hunker down and get ready for Christmas and put up our decorations...it's not too early and it would be a fun thing to do.
