Sorry-down and out here on the corner of Hamline and Hartford.

Woke up early yesterday morning with stomach distress, it got progressively worse until I was just a lump under my covers.

My head was pounding, it felt like an alien was trying to break out of my body.  A flu bug?  Food poisoning?  So I went through a litany in my head of what I had eaten the previous day (which only made me feel more nauseated....)

At that point it didn't really matter, I just wanted to feel better.  Nothing helped.  Sips of water was all I could manage.  Every muscle in my body hurt, there was no comfortable spot to be in.

You know I am sick when I don't even want to read, or knit.  So I spent the entire day, under the covers.

I HATE being sick!  I have too much to do!  Charlie needs his lunch packed, there is laundry piling up, gift card orders to mail, my Etsy shop to manage.

Today is a bit better, I was able to keep down toast, and open my laptop, and see what was going on in the world.  I even read a little bit, in between the pounding in my head.  Had a little turkey broth, going to try some tea next.

Charlie is an excellent care giver, he set up a movie for me on my laptop last night, to watch in bed.  This morning before he left for school, he asked if I could hurry up and get better so his life could get back to normal.

How do you battle a stomach bug?  No matter if it is the stomach flu or food poisoning, you pretty much have to treat them the same, and hope to god they go away soon... My wish to all of you, my dear readers, is that this particular bug does not find you this season!


  1. Ugh is right! I hate stomach bugs more than pretty much any illness. I usually stay in bed (and the bathroom) all day. I make my family wait on me. I basically sleep and pray it will all be over soon.

    I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. I hope you have a full recovery soon. It's not fun being sick, especially at this time of year!

  2. Ohhh, sorry to hear that! Hope you're up and at 'em soon so Charlie's life can get back to normal. (wink)

  3. ugh. feel better friend. Please call if you need anything. xo


Thanks for stopping by!
