A Bit of a Rough Week....

Apologies for the radio silence, which I'm afraid is going to continue for the next 2 1/2 weeks or so. Long story short, on Sunday I went to bed perfectly fine, and on Monday I woke up violently ill, as in sometimes literally crawling between the bedroom and the bathroom ill. Naturally, this happened while my husband is away for several weeks. On Tuesday I roused myself long enough to call a friend and ask her to take me to the doctor, and the doctor sent me to the ER just in case. It turned out to be a viral infection (aka nasty stomach bug), which is much better than the alternative. It's Wednesday evening and I'm feeling much more human, but still not myself.

And tomorrow I fly to Europe to meet my husband. Not only am I not particularly looking forward to flying, I now have to take schoolwork and freelance writing work on my vacation. I'm leaving the house in an absolute shambles for the petsitter. I'm still trying to do laundry and at least scrub the litter boxes, but I'm not exactly full of energy. Tomorrow morning I also have to return the second pair of headphones I've bought for this flight (first pair didn't work, second pair hurt the top of my head within seconds of putting them on).

Ah well, it can only get better, right? We seriously considered canceling the trip for me, but since I feel so much better today than yesterday, I'm hoping tomorrow I'll feel lots better than today -- and we would have lost so much money on this trip.

I'd planned to have all of those posts done in advance, of course. Not possible now, I'm afraid. I'll be back when I'm back (August 9), and in the meantime I hope you have a wonderful couple of weeks!

I'm so sorry you've been sick and I hope you at least get a chance to relax a little on your vacation! Safe travels!

Feel better and have a wonderful time!

Oh no : ( That is really awful.

I can't imagine the stress you're under right now. It's horrible to be sick, and it's so much worse to be sick alone and not have anyone to help you. And I think it's so stressful the few days before a trip. I can't imagine dealing with it when feeling like crap.

My heart totally goes out to you.

I really hope you feel better SOON, and enjoy Europe with your husband.
