Thanksgiving and the stomach flu

So our original Thanksgiving plans involved a 10 hour car ride to Ohio with 2 dogs and a baby.
Our actual plans involved the stomach flu......times 2.
I'm not sure which is worse.

All joking aside I was looking forward to Jamie's first trip to Ohio.
Maybe not the actual journey, but getting to see all of the hub's family and our friends.
Stuffing my face with all things Thanksgiving.
Watching the Ohio State vs Michigan game in Columbus.

 One things for sure....spending my day in the bathroom was NOT my idea of a good holiday.
Needless to say the Ohio trip was scrapped and we stayed home.

Thankfully things did settle down a bit in the stomach department for both me and the hubs by Thursday so we could leave the house to spend the day with my dad, brother and our family friends.
We even ventured out into the cold to watch the infamous Plaza lights turn on.
Though for the first time ever they actually turned on about 10 min early and we missed the official switch on by about 2 min.  I joked and said my mom wanted to see them first.  She did have the best seat in the house afterall.  :)

Today we were nothing but lazy.  It was glorious.
The only black Friday purchase I made was a cow print cloth diaper and all that took was one mouse click from the comfort of my own home.
No lines.  No waiting.  No 4am wake up calls.
That's my kind of shopping!

So sorry to hear about the stomach flu. No fun. Glad to hear that you are on the mend.
I've always wanted to go to the Plaza for the lighting but it has just never materialized.
The comment about your mom was so sweet - and I'm sure you're right!

We were thinking about you at lunch today!! I'm glad you are hanging in there and hoping that you are feeling better. Rest up this weekend!

Ugh. The stomach flu is the worse. I'm glad you got to do some celebrating, though.

And that's my idea of black friday shopping, too. No crazy stores, thankyouverymuch.

Yuck! I'm happy to read that you're feeling better. Hubby and I were sick like that on our last cruise and it was awful!

Nikki said...

I was going to make piles of beanie weanies today...but just couldn't muster up the energy without knowing you'd be here to scarf them down. We miss you! Go Bucks!

The stomach flu is the worst especially on a holiday. Glad y'all are feeling better though! Hope you have a great weekend!

Online shopping is the best! I've never been to Kansas City to see the Plaza lights around Christmas, but I've always heard that they're pretty!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I'm sorry you didn't make it to Ohio. I did all of my shopping online too!

Jordan said...

So sorry you were all sick! Hopefully you're as good as new by now! Jamie is about the cutest turkey I've ever seen and that cow diaper is adorable! We missed you and were thinking of you today! Can't wait to see you again soon.

ModernMom said...

Oh I'm so sorry to hear you guys were down and out for Thanksgiving!
I do have to say though, ever time I pop over here that baby gets cuter and cuter:)

Jules said...

I'm so sorry you had a stomach bug. Horrible timing with the holiday. I'm glad you were able to spend some time with your family. Jamie looks adorable all bundled up for the Plaza lights.

Hilary Lane said...

I'm glad you're feeling better! I had one of THOSE Thanksgiving a couple of years back. They are NO fun! We were at my brother's house, before he was married - you can imagine how clean his toilet was that I had to spend the day hovering over!

What is it with this damn stomach flu and special holidays? Ugh! So sorry you were sick :(
