Unexpected blog silence

It always seems that I return from the High School Snow Trip with something. Last year it was car problems that resulted in a return trip to Tahoe the next day. Usually it's a migraine. Yuck. A couple of years ago it was the flu. Ugh. This year, well, I'm not really sure what it was but it's been knocked me down flat.

Tuesday everything seemed fine except that I had this little tickle in the back of my throat that I just couldn't get rid of. Wednesday Morning I awoke and thought "Hmm...not feeling so great." My whole body hurt and when my lunch wasn't settling well and I was getting the shivers, I decided to go home and sleep for a couple of hours. 3 hours later under 2 down comforters I called in sick, not something I do very often but it was necessary. Good choice number 1.

Thursday I was supposed to accompany Train Guy and Adventure Boy to L.A. for the weekend to be their "nanny" while K & N went to a conference. But by 9:30 on Wednesday night as I lay underneath my down comforters not being able to eat much with a fever still raging, I gave up on that hope. Good choice number 2.

I've been down since then, re-emerging on Saturday briefly to send out the last couple of donation receipts I was working on Wednesday that needed to be in the mail yesterday. And I re-emerged this morning for Church (which Yo Momma will tell you was not a good idea) because I am a glutton for punishment and I was determined to get out of the house. The problem is I don't have much of an appetite (for good reason) but because I haven't eaten much I'm weak, so taking a shower and getting dressed this morning just about made me pass out. Lovely.

There also may be a little bit of a caffeine with drawl thing going on too...great way to detox huh?

So my unexpected blog silence hasn't been for fun or resulted in any great wisdom, just a bad case of cabin fever...though there is a post brewing somewhere, just wait!
