What are the odds?

March 21st, 2009

Yesterday morning, my Prince Charming announced he was taking a surprise vacation day from work.

He had canceled all his meetings and cleared his schedule to stay home and have fun with me and the Little Man.

I was so excited!

He had never surprised me with a vacation day like this before and I thought it was wonderful.

Unfortunately, my body had other plans.

And a few hours later, it was painfully clear that I had suddenly contracted a bad stomach virus.

So Charming spent his surprise vacation day playing with Bubbers and taking care of me as I languished on the couch.

And I repeatedly told him how sorry I was that we weren’t having the fun he had planned.

But every time he sweetly replied, “I wouldn’t have had it any other way.”

And then he’d cover me with a blanket or hand me a new can of ginger ale.

It’s been an absolute blessing to have him home.

But I do hope another surprise vacation day comes our way when a stomach virus doesn’t. :)

That’s really too bad that you coulodn’t have fun. But at least he was there to take care of Bubbers… and you too!

Oh, those viruses are the worst!! :( Especially pregnant. :( What a blessing that he was able to help take care of you and your son that day though! Hope you feel better very soon!

What a sweet husband you have! I’m sorry you were so sick though. Did it make you have any contractions? Hope you are all feeling better and no one else got it!

Bummer! Ginger ale really does wonders for a tummy that is not happy, doesn’t it? Hope you have recovered my friend!

It’s such a great thing that your husband takes such good care of you even with a surprise on the vacation day, I think he’s definitely a keeper.
