Today was my first day off work for fall break. We get Friday and Monday—a four-day weekend—and I’ve got doctors appointments scheduled on Monday. I planned to spend today getting a few things in order that I’ve let slide. My desk in the office is spilling over with junk mail, bills, stuff to read, and other items to process.
My stomach felt a little crazy last night before bed, but I managed to get to sleep…until about 1:30 a.m. That’s when I started doing laps between the bed and the bathroom. A stomach bug! Great. I continued doing laps until about 10 a.m. when the sluices finally eased off a bit, but sleep was still out of the question. I dozed fitfully until sunrise and into the morning and afternoon before I finally sat up in bad and grabbed a computer to try to get my mind off the pain in my gut.
Then, the headache set in (did I mention we’re having our roof replaced? kapow! kapow! kapow!) followed by alternating chills and sweats. I have been able to eat about five saltines and half a bowl of Campbell’s potato soup before I started making laps again. So yeah, it’s been a pretty rotten vacation day.
