Hello…….sorry, no photos, today! I had a very UNhappy Valentine’s Day and spent the most of the entire day in bed sleeping off a nightmare from last night!
About 6:00-ish last evening, I got hit HARD with what I was sure must have been food poisoning…..I had a love/hate relationship with my toilet and the waste basket in the bathroom as I had explosions erupting from every orifice of my body all at the same time for several hours…..then, I fell into bed, clothes and all, with the lights on about midnight. But, that wasn’t the end of my nightmare…….I was only able to sleep for about 1/2 hour intervals when the violent attacks on my body returned off and on ALL NIGHT LONG!!! I finally put on some jammies and turned out the lights at 3:30 am, hoping for a restful few hours, but my body didn’t take the hint!
So……I finally got about a full hour’s sleep between about 6:00-7:00, things had slowed down, but I woke up so very weak and exhausted. I got up at the usual time and let Megan out and fed her, but I knew trying to stay up was futile, so I went back to bed. I was able to sleep most of the morning with only a couple interruptions, but was still really weak……the couch became my best friend the rest of the day!!!
At one point, I thought I felt up to walking across the street to get my mail……it took way more energy than I had to get a stack of catalogs and an advertisement that all went in the recycle bin on my way back in the house! UGH!
I used to think the line from The Devil Wears Prada…..”I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight” was funny…….UM, IT IS NOT!!!! I lost 5 pounds over night, but I’d gladly take it back – DOUBLED – if it meant I didn’t go through what I did to lose it!!!
So……..sleeping and forcing down liquids every time I woke up was how I spent my Valentine’s Day! Isn’t that romantic???
