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. :)
