Hugging The Throne

Funny how I go on vacation and I end up blogging every day. Okay, it is sad really. Sad because I was busier on my vacation yet when I am at home, I tend to get distracted a little more and OCD about dirt, yards, chores etc that need to get done. I am not one of those people who can just sit down and kick back to relax. A long list of things that need to get done are constantly swirling around in my head and while a part of me knows that the world won't end if these things don't get done, the other part of me obsesses about it until it gets done.

This week was an especially difficult conversation going on in my head as I have been ill. And, when I say ill, I mean puking my guts out, achy joints, pooping machine kind of ill. I can honestly say that I can't remember being this sick in a very long time. It is day four now and I am still not able to eat much and am weaker than you can imagine due to a lack of sustenance in my system. And believe me, it is not from a lack of trying. My body just is not ready to except food at this point. Other than the eating issue, I am feeling quite fine. I rearranged the house yesterday, dusted the place, managed a few loads of laundry and have a long list of MUST GET DONES today as we have company coming tomorrow. Heavens forbid if we have guests in this house without the house being spotless - heck no - that would give me nightmares to last a lifetime.

Truthfully, I have never been this anal; it seems to get worse with age. I always thought that one was supposed to mellow with age but perhaps as usual, I will end up doing things backwards ... as always.

could you be pregnant??

Heh heh ... NO. Sadly at the risk of TMI - throughout this whole puking, crappin and achin sickness, I was also blessed with the monthly flow. I know .. I am a lucky girl to have a massive whammy like that.

Trust me when I say, if I were pregnant, Hubby would be crying and I would be tossed up between crying too and celebrating with joy. Besides - don't you actually have to see your spouse to get pregnant?

Naw, not TMI. Just gives the rest of us hope that maybe we aren't that much out of whack. :-)

I hope you feel better now!!! And the world does not explode at all if chores don't get done within a week. I know, I've tested the system!!!

take care and feel better
