Best Laid Plans

You remember the list of things I'd outlined to do today in my family's absence? I tossed and turned all night because I was excited to wake up and get to my day (not my typical MO).

I didn't go to sleep until about 3am due to this book I'm reading, which by the way is pretty compelling. I wasn't a Twilight Series groupie and thought that Stephanie Meyer wasn't "all that" but have somewhat come around after reading her latest book.

At 9am, I woke ready to jump into action. But...first order of business was to throw up, then head to the medicine cabinet for Pepto or whatever might let me have even a 3 minutes reprieve from the bathroom. Not deterred, I took a shower and got ready to go to church. By 10:15 though, I knew I wasn't going anywhere except back to bed. Foiled!!

I lay there feeling sorry for myself and listening to the Chihuahua tell the world he's lonely (no, I haven't yet gone over there - I'm waiting to see if DH will take care of it first, for once). I read for awhile and then at noon, decided to try to clean up the house at least. Having labored through that wondering how my friends who get deathly nauseous while pregnant manage THIS for 9 months, I made some mint tea, took my temp (101.9) and went back to bed.

I decided that my aches and pains could be associated with my hellatious run yesterday but are more likely attributed to a case of stomach flu. Even touching my skin hurts.

I think I'll just lay here and feel sorry for myself some more though, as I think of all the wonderful things I was going to do today that now I'm missing out on.

4 backward glances:

Sorry to hear you are feeling ill. I did notice you weren't at church today and wondered what you might be doing...where you out of town, did you have another meeting to attend, etc. Missed your smiling face. Hope you are better soon. Is there anything I can do?

Steve said...

Poor thing. Give me any kind of external pain and I'm okay. Cuts, bumps, bruises, broken noses, broken toes, black eyes. You name it. I'm good.

I can even handle headaches and sinus pressure.

But even a hint of nausea and I'm curled up in the fetal position whimpering like a baby.

Feel better!

Katie said...

I have been SO sick yesterday and toady too. This better end soon or I will DIE!

Ug, I'm sorry you and Katie both have the stomach flu. No fun. Can I bring you soup or rolls from Parson's? Its the one time I'm here and can do something.
