My week was going on so nicely, and I was so looking forward to this weekend. Then yesterday morning when I got up I felt exhausted, which I blamed to not enough sleep the past three nights. (I was going through a spell where I stayed awake designing quilts in my head - do any of the rest of you do that?) Anyway, I managed to get dressed and grab a bite and headed out at 6:30 a.m. to the chiropractor. Half way there I realized I was more than just tired, so I turned around and came home. In less than 5 minutes after I got home I was struck with the worst case of "Montezuma's Revenge" that I've ever had. I guess I must have picked up the norovirus somewhere. I called the chiropractor to cancel, then work to leave messages, as I had to arrange for cover on two meetings I was to attend. Then I put myself to bed and tried to get warm. I was chilled all the way through. My head ached terribly as did my "nether regions". This went on until about 9:00 last evening when things finally calmed down enough that I could go to sleep. This morning I'm totally washed out but otherwise OK - thank goodness. Yesterday I felt so miserable that I simply laid in bed and didn't care whether I lived or died.
Today I have to find the energy to finish appliquéing the hearts on the Quilt Pink quilt as I need to turn it in on Monday so it can get mailed to American Patchwork and Quilting. I don't think any longarm quilting will be done, however - not unless I feel lots better tomorrow.
Here's hoping this bug doesn't find the rest of you - it's a particularly nasty one!
1. Feeling better today
2. Toast with butter
3. Herbal tea - especially peppermint
