Turkey Day Review

Here is the Turkey Day Review a couple of days late.

In some ways, Turkey Day was pretty good. We got to see a lot of family that we hadn't seen in a long time. All of my mother's family came down on Thanksgiving day. It was pretty cool, although very loud. The sound level does not increase in a linear fashion as you add more people. It does progress linearly for a while, but then it starts to double with every person. After that, we went to hang out at Misty's mother's house for a while, which I will discuss in a little bit. From there, we went to Misty's aunt's house. While that is usually a fairly stressful, it actually ended up being a really pleasant experience. Misty's father and step-mother were there as well as her sister and her husband and kids.

In other ways, Turkey Day was a big fat pile of suck. Not just bad, but really freaking bad. As I mentioned before, things had been going pretty well until the outbreak monkey showed up. You remember the movie? The one where the cute little monkey is responsible for getting thousands of people sick? Well, in this case, it wasn't a monkey and it wasn't a thousand people. It was one child and it ended up with seven sick people. Noah and I included. That was what sucked the most. Noah started puking on Saturday morning at about 3:00am. I started at around 5:00am. He was done around 9:00am and it was all over for him. I wasn't feeling human until Monday. It just goes to show you that kids recover a lot faster.

All in all, I think Misty and I have decided that we probably won't be going back for 5 days for Thanksgiving. The last three times that we have been back for Thanksgiving, I have gotten sick. This year wasn't as bad as last year... Last year I got a heart infection. But, it still wasn't fun....

Now, all I can think about is that it is only 22 days until Christmas... Oh, joy.
