The Best Laid Plans

Posted on: November 29, 2008

My Thanksgiving plans were clearly not the best laid plans. The best laid plans would have included some sort of contingency plan for what to do if everyone gets sick.

Two weeks ago, my sister’s entire family got sick. A week later, Logan had it. Then on Thanksgiving morning, I found out both my parents were sick. So we decided to postpone the meal for a day, since I would really need my mom’s help to pull everything together.

So Friday morning, she showed up bright and early, and we slaved in the kitchen all day making a wonderful, delicious meal.

At least, I’m assuming it was a delicious meal. All I ate was a roll, because by the time it was ready, I didn’t feel well. And sure enough, last night Carrie and I caught the bug. I had eaten a little bit of spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer, and I did not enjoy revisiting it last night. It was definitely only good the first time around.

My dad also missed the meal, because he still wasn’t feeling well yesterday.

This morning we are better, but not 100%. I’m still not ready to try any of the leftovers.

Anyway, it was one of those Thanksgivings that will make for a good story someday. I know I’m not telling it all that well, but that’s just because I’m still recovering.

I hope you all had a wonderful and pleasant Thanksgiving!

Aw, bummer! That’s a positive way to look at it though, that it will be a good story to tell one day. That’s what we all say about the Thanksgiving my brother dumped the gravy down the drain while washing dishes… well, he doesn’t like us to retell that story, but everyone else gets a kick out of it!

I hope you guys are all feeling better – you need a break from sickness!
