Out of Sorts

Yesterday, Anthony and I cancelled all our work appointments and lounged around in bed together all day. Sounds lovely, doesn't it? Well, it wasn't -- we both came down with what I suspect was food poisoning. I started vomiting at 3 am. I got up to let the dog out and feed her at 9 am and vomited some more. I did manage to be upright for about 30 minutes between 4-5 pm, then I went back to bed and fell asleep until morning.

Anthony felt marginally better. He didn't have any vomiting, and was able to take the kids to school and get them home. He cooked a frozen pizza for their dinner.

This morning both kids were excited to see me sitting up. Later, we went to a local plant sale to buy our heirloom tomato plants, and I petered out pretty quickly. I ended up sitting in the grass, listening to a mediocre children's musician with Colin, while Anna and Anth did most of the plant picking.

I tried to nap this afternoon, but about every 20 minutes Colin came banging on the door. "Mahhhhh....Mayyyyyy...Ding-dong, ding-dong!" He just wanted my attention. I gave up on the nap, talked to him, and played some card games with Anna.

Hopefully tomorrow will be even better.

So sorry you were ill. I thought our day was tough ( beginning the packing/move prep stuff ) but you had it worse.

Hope tomorrow is much better for both of you.

Yuck. A stomach bug is going around here, so maybe not food poisoning. If it was food related, doesn't this belong on your other blog: What I Ate?

Get well quickly -- we are heading your way tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear you felt so bad. Work was ok, you didn't miss anything. I was thankful I didn't give you what I had (flu). It's tough being sick with small children. They just don't get it, do they? At least the kids weren't sick, too. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Hope you are feeling better today and the kids don't come down with anything. We missed you at work, but it was a slow Friday, so things ran smoothly.

Oh no - it sounds like what Jesse and I had a few weeks ago. If it was not food posisoning, and I know it's days later now, let me still just say that our virus was tricky - it would act like it was gone, but the minute you made ONE POOR FOOD CHOICE, it was back with a vengeance.

Hope you're all better!
