I'm back

I woke up early Sunday morning with a fever, chills, body aches, stomach upset, headache....Yep, the dreaded flu. I am guessing that's what it was since I didn't know what else to call it. I was in bed all day Sunday except for using the bathroom and ended up not going in to work yesterday. I stayed in and out of bed's, couches and lazy boys all day Monday. It seemed like I could not find a spot to get comfy. The t.v. annoyed me, especially the Food Network or any commercials having to do with food. Did I just type that? Food has never annoyed me before, except when I was having morning sickness. (No, I am not preggy). What has happened to daytime t.v.? I love to watch Bonnie Hunt & Ellen & A Baby Story, but they even annoyed me. So, I lay in silence with a wet cloth over my head and 3 dogs on my body. (We dog sat for grand-dog this week). Then the phone starts ringing off the hook, mostly wrong numbers. I began feeling hungry last night and the only thing that felt right was toast. I did crave lemon ice from Culver's too, which my sweet hubby went to get me. Nate came to pick up his dog and brought Abby with him. She gave me the sweetest get well card she made me. That was the healing I needed.
So, I woke up feeling Alive again and went to work. As I was walking out the door, I noticed that my Lillie's were in full bloom and everything looked so beautiful to me. I lost 2 whole days and that really bothered me. I am not a good sick person. I am the one who does for others. I am not allowed to be sick. It's funny though how being sick puts things in perspective. It makes you really appreciate your health and all the blessings God has given us. Oh, and something good did come out of it, I had a big weight loss on the scales this morning. So, I'm back and feeling Alive. I've missed you all.

Welcome back! Glad you are on the mend and feeling like a human being again :) I don't do sick well, either. It's not fair to get sick when you're the mom.

When you feel awful you get a chance to see how many commercials are about food. I'll bet it is at least 75% but it seems like 90% when you are sick. Glad you are feeling better.

Glad you're feeling better! It really stinks to be sick, especially in the summer!

I kept visiting and did begin to worry about you. I am so happy you're up and about but keep it slow. Your body needs time to recuperate! Isn't it just like you to stop and see your flowers when it was all over!!
