under the weather…

I had a wonderful weekend planned. A Thursday PM – Sunday PM spa weekend in Lake Tahoe with two of my girlfriends. We had lake view reservations at some of the best restaurants and treatments scheduled at our favorite spa. I can’t even put into words how disappointed I was to come down with some sort of stomach bug. I had the chills, anxiety, was laying on the bathroom floor not even wanting to think about food or anyone touching me. I was miserable. It takes a lot to break me… trust me, I was super broken.

I kept trying to push forward, but it just wasn’t happening. I wanted to be home in my own bed with Dan and Higgy. Friday evening we packed up the car in record time and my amazing girlfriends drove me home in my pajamas while I rocked and prayed in the back seat that we wouldn’t have to stop a million times.

I made it home and my days have been filled with much of the above. Chicken broth, rice, soda crackers, ginger ale and Gatorade.  Good times… not! I promise I will be back to posting recipes when food and trying new things sounds appealing. Don’t want to bore you with photo after photo of broth, bubbly ginger ale and whining.

It’s back to the couch and T.V. for me.

    I am so sorry you are sick and missed your fun weekend. You deserved a long weekend of pampering. Hope you are on the mend. I know what it is like to feel so bad that all you want to do is pull the covers over your head and sleep. Love you!

  1. I am so, so sorry you are feeling under the weather and had to cancel such a special weekend. You must be so disappointed – but I’m happy you are at home and taking care of yourself. Give yourself a hug from me. And give Higgy a hug from me too!

    Sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well. On the plus side, the crackers are artfully displayed! 🙂

    Feel better soon!

    Awww man! That’s just awful that your relaxing weekend was stopped short with a bug. Feel better!

    Bummer. I hope the ginger ale, crackers and broth work their magic and you’re feeling better soon.

    Yes, it sucked that the trip was cut short, but there will be another opportunity to get away later this summer for a ginger ale and chicken broth free vacation!

    P.S. You rocked those leopard pj’s! 😉

    Ah poor buddy, so sorry to hear this. Sounds like we have some catching up to do once you are feeling better.
