It seems like my body is starting a trend.
Anytime a holiday or an important occasion is around the corner, I get sick! This is the same as what happened around the holidays a couple of months ago. A runny nose or even some sneezing would be workable, but noooo, I get a full on cold. Sometimes I run to Urgent Care and sometimes I just ride it out.
It’s been six weeks of a combination of the stomach bug, colds and flu around here and, well, my body gave up.
At my most recent visit to Urgent Care, I received some meds and stayed in bed for the next few days.
It was always the plan that hubby would cook Thanksgiving (the one holiday I don’t cook for) dinner, but in reality I always help out. Whether it be the food shopping, the prep, etc. It would be a small gathering (mother-in-law, sister-in-law and David the guncle). However, I was mentally and physically done. Therefore I didn’t do too much, but I did manage to make a pitcher of Apple Cider Sangria and a Pinterest craft (which I unfortunately forgot to take an after picture).
Thursday night came quickly, and I was magically better. MIL and SIL both brought yummy home baked desserts. Guncle even brought us a hostess gift of macaroons from London. It was a nice evening, but as it got later, I once again crashed. I swear my body knows what’s going on.
I really did miss waking up at an early hour the next day to shop the deals on Black Friday, but with having a cold and Black Friday no longer what it used to be (for those that don’t know, stores now open at 8pm ON Thanksgiving), I was happy to stay in bed!
