Wasted Sunday

I don't much like being sick, but it's twice as bad when it happens on a weekend and cuts into my play time! I woke up this a.m. at 6:30 with stomach pains and shortly thereafter realized the day was not going to be improving a whole lot anytime soon. I don't know if it was a stomach bug or yesterday's meal out, but boy was I one sick puppy for several hours! My poor husband woke up because I was literally crying in the hallway trying to decide whether it was more important to get out to the kitchen for a glass of water or head the other way toward the bathroom.

The Wild Child was expected to arrive around 9:30 a.m., and we had planned a family dinner here. The chicken was marinading in the fridge and I was supposed to spend the morning making potato salad and dessert. Didn't happen. Instead, I spent most of the morning and into the afternoon alternating between sleeping and being ill. They ended up moving the dinner to my sister-in-law's house and left me in peace--by then, I was starting to feel like I just might live.


I spent part of the afternoon lying around reading, but I finally managed to get myself up, bathed, and dressed around late afternoon. Now, after a few hours in the Sweat Shop prepping some cherries for applique, I'm ready to call it a night. What a wimp! But I'm feeling better, and I hope to get a good night's sleep--after all, it's back to work again tomorrow. But I sure wish I could get my Sunday back!

You'll feel better tomorrow once your back at work. LOL!! I'm sorry that you were sick though. You know, I had that same thing on Friday. It was out of no where and BAM!!! Then it was gone. I kept trying to think of what I could have eaten.
Can't wait to see what you do with the cherries. I know it's gonna be cute.

Hi Kim,
That flu bug sure gets around because I have been down and out for most of the weekend too- like you, I could sure have lived without it- I do a bit and then I just have to rest - however I am on the mend and I am very glad to hear that you are too.
This week is spring break from teaching my little ones so I have great plans for quilting - I better get moving hadn't I-
I hope that you did get a visit in with your daughter and that you have no more bouts with this mean old bug!

Regards,
Anna

Why is it our bodies decide to be naughty on a day off? It's SO unfair, isn't it? I'm glad you're feeling better, and I really like the start of the cherries. It's gonna be very cute!

Poor girl! Hope you are doing better now. I know, when it happens on the weekend, it feels like we get "robbed" of a day. Not fair!
