*It Was A Bad Week*

I'm so sorry to have abandoned you....  I left Regina right after a huge rainstorm on Tuesday and made it back to Calgary safe and sound to find Bruce and the boyz making a nice BBQ steak dinner.  We enjoyed the fruits of their labour before hitting the couch and watching TV.  I got up to head to bed around 10 and felt kinda bloated but didn't think too much about it.

Except that it kept getting worse.

And around 1am the fun began.... I will spare you the details but I am sure you can use your imagination when I tell you I was up and down all night long.  At 7am, when Bruce was heading for work, I finally thought to take some Advil for the aches in every joint.  I went back to bed and slept until 10 (the most sleep I got all night) and then spent the rest of the day laying on the couch, occasionally moaning and groaning, making the kids get me water and Ibuprofen.

Wednesday was a complete write-off.

I got up Thursday morning and felt tired and weak, but not too bad.... but obviously overdid it as I was in a cold sweat by the end of the day.  Friday I decided to take the kids to the mall to do some back to school shopping and ended up in a cold sweat.

Didn't help that I really hadn't eaten much of anything since supper on Tuesday.

Today I am feeling somewhat better.  I can put food in my mouth without having to choke it down.  I am tired still.  And a little shaky (probably from the aforementioned lack of food).  But the cramping is gone.  The desire to sleep all day is kinda gone (just wanna sleep part of the day LOL).

The only upsides to this are:
*mom and Heather didn't get it
*I lost a few pounds!

Anyway... enough talk of my issues....

I love this bright colour combination.... so fun!

This sucks! You were supposed to rest up when you got home but this is a ridiculous way to go about it! Hope you are feeling better now.

Nancy;
Sorry to hear about your mom. It's not fair -- first about your dad a couple of years ago -- and now your mom.

You, your mom, your sister and whole family is in my thoughts.
Take care.

So sorry that you didn't feel, but probably your body saying you need to rest and then forced you into it :(. Your card is so pretty, so bright. Hang in there and just get your rest.
