I woke up Wednesday morning at 4:40 am to the sounds of vomiting.
Grant got sick.
Bless his little heart, he hit the trash can too!
Darn it, what terrible timing.
No Thanksgiving at the Broeker household this year.
That means no sister and family, no parents and no sister 'n law and nephew coming.
I got mad about it.
Then I wondered what to do with a 18 lb. turkey that was thawed.
Can't re-freeze and don't want to eat poultry for a week.
Then I realized that the Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach could use it.
They took it with much gratitude and thanks.
That's what Thanksgiving is all about.
Think of others and realizing life could be so much worse than the darn stomach flu.
After work on Wednesday, I went holiday grocery shopping (again) and bought 5 Banquet dinners and told the kids we were eating these yummy, little numbers instead.
They cost eighty-eight cents each.
And guess what?
They didn't say anything.
They accepted the idea.
I was disappointed. No reaction.
Of course, I did purchase a turkey breast too.

Then it was time to eat and this is what Tyler looked like.
White and fatigued.
He didn't eat the Thanksgiving meal and took a nap instead.
Good news...he never threw up!
Madison enjoyed pumpkin pie with me.
The house was the quietest it's ever been for a holiday.
There were only five of us and it was peaceful.
Lots of sleeping.
And time to wear my favorite, lime green, comfy socks with nothing to do!
Hope you all had a relaxing, peaceful and joyous holiday with much to be thankful for!
