Happy belated Halloween! I spent the day hunched over the toilet puking my guts out. After 8 hours my stomach finally settled down, but now I'm stuck with a fever, chills, and a body that feels like it was hit by a truck. No clue where I picked up this nasty bug, but I hope no one else in the family gets it. Thank God for my mom, who made dinner last night and got the kids to school this morning. David took the kids trick-or-treating. I was horrified to miss out on that. Just awful. I'm hoping he took a picture of them with his iphone. I was so sick last night I couldn't even talk to him.
On Saturday night David and I went to a Halloween party. He suggested we go as his "worst nightmare."
He's a huge Minnesota Viking's fan, and going as dreaded Green Bay Packer's fans got a few laughs. We had a great time and I even got him to dance a little. That's a rare occurrence.
November was supposed to start 30 Days of Nothing for me. I think I might have to wait for January to do that challenge. Zinabu's birthday is in November, and I'm not ready for it at all. Also, we're going away to Breckenridge 2 different times. Once for Veteran's Day weekend and again for Thanksgiving. I don't feel like I can pull off 30 Days of Nothing without cheating a lot. So I'm putting it off until January. I'm bummed. I love 30 Days of Nothing in November. Our culture jumps from Halloween to Christmas and skips right over Thanksgiving. To me, November should be a time of thankfulness, reflection, gathering in, pausing to reflect, and appreciating all that we're blessed with. We will still do that as a family. (Remember our thankful tree? That's starting as soon as I feel better.) We will not shop for Christmas or think about Christmas or worry about Christmas until December.
And now I'm off to the bathroom...
