So, it turns out that this year you are sick on this most glorious of days! With an ear infection, of all things (And a pretty nasty virus - but the ear infection is much worse I think.) The plague might have been better for you to get at this point.
BUT All is not lost! Sometimes you will be sick, and sometimes it will fall on the most important of days. You could get sick on graduation day - you could be sick for Easter - you could get sick on your Honeymoon, or just before you are to get married (Which is why you should always try for a spring or Summer wedding - so that you have less of a chance of getting sick.) You could be sick on vacation, or other important days.
Just remember that just because you are sick does not mean that the day is any less than it was before you got sick. This day is just as amazing and wonderful. :) Just take it a little bit slower and easier and try to enjoy the little things. You will feel better in no time. :)
Besides, because you are sick - you get to chill with me and Rick and go see Assassins Creed with us. WOOT WOOT!
I Love you - Merry Christmas!
