I did not intend on taking a "blogging break" this past week.
Actually, I had intended on posting about our wonderful Christmas and filling you all in on the wonderful things we were doing since Brett has been off work.
I intended on cooking fabulous new meals and eating all the leftover holiday sweets.
I intended on taking a zillion photographs of the kids since I got a fancy new flash for Christmas.
I intended on relaxing, possibly reading a book and painting my nails. 
I intended on spending some nice, quality time with my husband.

Those things did not happen. 
We got terribly, horribly sick.
Sicker than we've ever been.
I'll spare you the gory details but let me tell you it was not pretty.
Thankfully, Jacob did not get it and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't.

I was bummed out my plans didn't go according to the way I wanted them to go.
I should know better. 
Because really, it's not about my plans, but His plans, ya feel me?
Instead of sulking around about what didn't go my way I'm looking at the brighter side of things. 

Silly as it may sound, being as sick as we were, my husband and I actually became a bit closer.
Seeing a person you love at their worse can do that to you.
We were a team and we worked well together. We cared for one another and helped each other even though we felt horrible ourselves. 
It wasn't easy.
I know this sounds very melodramatic and all, but seriously...sickest we've ever been.

So with all that said, we are better.
Our health is better and we're better as a family.
Which makes me really happy as we jump into 2012.
I have every intention of having a wonderful evening bringing in the new year with my family and our friends. 
But if for some reason that doesn't go the way I planned, well I'm sure I'll have something to learn.

Happy New Year!!

i got horribly sick too. my husband didn't get sick (he never does), but he took care of me.
