Well yesterday was not the killer start that I hoped for. Everything was fine during the day, I was so excited because my husband was flying home from being away for a week in Norway on business. I had prepared Chicken Gumbo, Cole Slaw and Cranberry bread for dinner. I went out and got ballons, a welcome home banner, the works!
He made it home safe and it was so wonderful when he walked through the door, however things took a turn when I was finishing dinner I started to feel very nauseated. It got worse and the next thing I knew I was running to the bathroom VERY sick. Isn't that a romantic welcome home?
I was not able to eat the Gumbo I made for him as the smell was making me sick. It felt as if I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy or something. I was not feeling well all night. I went to bed around 9 and then was up again to see the end of the opening ceremonies.
This morning I feel better so I am not sure what happened last night but it was NOT fun. Fortunately my husband was there to help which made it easier to get through. So as I said it was not the bombastic start of my challenge that I wanted nor was it the romantic welcome home I had planned but these things happen in life and you just have to laugh about it and move on.
