That being said, we did get our Christmas decorations up in the house. We host a Cajun Christmas Celebration each year at our house, so the inside is nice and “Louisiana” right now – it’s fantastic. Our tree has alligators and crawfish and I’ve already made the menu for the party: Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, and a Cajun Ham. We’ll have a white elephant gift exchange and probably end up playing Just Dance (maybe even Just Dance 2 if I can talk my lovely wife into getting it for me) until WAY too late. Since my TTC plans are currently on hold, I just might get sloshed. The plan is to throw myself into the holiday, enjoy my friends, laugh until I cry, and forget that I miss my family more than words can describe and I’d give anything in the world to have them with me now…
Thanksgiving Holiday November 29, 2010
The past few days have been not so fun. While I did enjoy hanging out with my wife, the majority of the time was spent in the bed or the bathroom sick. It hit me Wednesday night, and I didn’t get hardly any sleep. Thursday I slept, all day long. Friday was spent getting over the tail end of it. Then, Friday night, it hit poor Lori. She slept all day Saturday and spent Sunday attempting to get over the last bit of it.
