Progress Report Delay

Yesterday was the first day of my nine day paid vacation from work.... I had all these plans to spend Thanksgiving with my parents and brother.... to go fishing.... to just have some quality family time that I've missed a lot lately.... and yesterday my husband spent all day puking with the stomach flu....

So I had to cancel my surprise trip that I was going to tell you all about and I can't be with my family because I can't risk my brother getting sick (compromised immune system).  So I've spent the first two days of my vacation taking care of my sick husband, having panic attacks (I have that vomit phobia thing) and disinfecting my entire house.  Oh and doing everything in my power to keep from getting sick which includes sleeping on the very uncomfortable couch (or trying to sleep).  At least I will get to spend Thanksgiving with my husband and my best friend who is back in town for the week (after not seeing her for three months).  I just miss my family and I'm sad about missing out on my favorite holiday dinner.  :(

I'm trying to focus on what I have to be thankful for, but it's been hard, so I'm taking a break from the blogs and I'll do the progress report when I can.  I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and wonderful food.  :)


  1. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving where ever you are!

  2. Have a great Thanksgiving - you can always plan a mid-year family dinner!


  3. I didn't think of that Sam. Good idea. The only problem is scheduling. My husband and I work every weekend and my dad has weekends off. My husband goes to school all week (between the two he never has a day off). So yeah.... kind of difficult to find a day/time we can all be together. That's why I was so sad because this is the first time ever that all three of us have been able to take our vacations on the same week! And now our vacations have been totally wasted... well except at least none of us has to go to work sick. That's good....

  4. I hope that your husband gets better soon and that you manage to enjoy your thanks giving where ever you are doing whatever you do :)

  5. It sounds kind of stressful now, but it will be something to look back on for years to come. The year of the Thanksgiving flu.
