Be Careful What You Wish For

You know how I said that I wanted a day where I didn’t have to do anything, talk to anyone, or go anywhere? Well, I got what I asked for but not in the way that I wanted.

Friday, the Mister and I took the girls to a baseball game. They had a blast. The youngest is a people watcher and her eyes were bright with wonder the entire game. I was afraid that she would get bored because she’s not exactly a baseball fan, but she loved every minute of it and asked when we could go back. We also stayed for the after-game fireworks which were pretty great. We thought they were over twice before they actually were. Great fireworks show.

Saturday morning is when it happened. I woke up about 6 in the morning which made me really mad, lol. That’s when I normally wake up during the week, NOT on a Saturday. As I tried getting back to sleep, I started feeling queasy and it soon became apparent why I woke up in the first place:  it was finally my turn with the stomach flu. I’m just today starting to feel normal. Either I was affected differently than the girls or we had different bugs because they were better in a day and it took me three days to feel better. The only good thing about it was that it happened mostly over the weekend. I don’t know how I would have handled driving the oldest to and from school if I had gotten sick during the week. AND, I lost about two pounds, heheh. Hey. I’ll take the pound lossage anyway that I can get it.

Due to being unpleasantly laid up in bed, I’m behind in my blog reading, Twittering, and responding to comments and such. So, thanks to everyone who wished me well via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc. It was very sweet and made me feel better to read all the nice comments. Like I said, I’m pretty much back to normal today. I just have some residual tiredness and not much of an appetite.

Hope you all had a better weekend than I did. ;)


  1. Oh no! Yeah, not necessarily your ideal "me" time. I hope you're feeling better.

  2. I am glad you are feeling better, Trisha.

  3. Pam~~Nope. That really wasn't what I had in mind. I should have been more specific in my wishing, lol. ;)

    LF~~Thanks. I'm fully recovered.

  4. Glad to hear you are feeling better! Stomach bugs are 9to me) the worst kind of sickness. Yuck. Hope it's out of your house now!

  5. Dana~

    We're all over it. Of course, C didn't get it though, lol.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
