Spent the first big holiday without Mom.
Spent it with husband's family as far away from Central New Jersey as I could get.
Two days in the new car there, two days back home.
In a way, I think it cleansed my soul, but something happened that also cleansed my digestive tract. I got sick. Really sick. Never leave the bathroom sick. Not because of the lovely Thanksgiving dinner, no, not that. I think it was coming on before we left home.
But...a sick stomach is dangerous.
It rained. Parts of NC and parts of VA were flooded. When we came home, we found that parts of NJ were flooded also.
All I can say is, Thank God it wasn't snow.
