Thanksgiving and more

After a week+ of misery, I'm finally feeling better. I kept feeling somewhat better last week, but then I'd feel horribly again.

Because of all this, Jeremy and I decided to keep Thanksgiving low key and just do a few side dishes and one dessert.

Here's as picture of most of the food:



That's green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, Jeremy's famous sweet potato souffle, dressing, and a roll. I guess we didn't get a picture of the pumpkin pie cheesecake.

I wasn't feeling particularly well that day, but managed to make my assigned dishes. As I was kneading the dough for the rolls I got really tired and exhausted. That's when I knew I was still pretty sick. We got through dinner and as I was laying on the couch that night I knew I wasn't going to be able to work the next day as was planned. I hate taking sick days. I managed to never take one in the three and a half years I worked at the University of Tennessee. Then again, I was never really sick then so that helped. It was a good thing I didn't try to work Friday - I was miserable! I laid on the couch all day watching Gilmore Girls and movies on TV. I also had a low fever. Luckily, when I woke up Saturday I was feeling much better - good enough to even leave the house! Since then I've been feeling progressively better. Now all I have is a cough, other than that I'm basically fine.

Jeremy has managed to not be sick this entire time. I don't know how he does it. My guess is that he was still in California when I was most contagious. I'm glad he didn't get sick - who would have gone to the store to get me Nyquil, and Tussin, and Vicks VapoRub, and most importantly, chocolate?
