The Sick of Hell

So Sunday night, I am sitting at my computer minding my own business. I was actually putting together my Fun Monday post, so that I could post it first thing Monday morning ( which DID NOT happen). All of a sudden I just began to ache. I told Randy that I was dying as I crawled into the bed.
He asked me if my chest hurt. Apparently, in order to die, your chest must hurt. I said no and then started to tremble and shake as if I were outdoors naked in a snowstorm. I am telling you, I was chilled down to my bones. Four blankets, a hot bath, my husband...nothing could warm me up. Shortly after that the nausea started.
I am telling you. This was the virus from hell. I was up until 5 am freezing and dying. Finally, Randy gave me NyQuil (because I was keeping him awake.) And then, Praise the Lord...sleep came.
I rested up yesterday. I slept until one and then read most of Middelsex. (I am slowly putting a dent in my Fall into Reading list. Slowly...very slowly. 1 1/2 down, 3 1/2 to go.) So today I am back at work. Yay.
Now, I am just hoping and praying that the kids don't get it. Or God forbid Randy gets it. Then I would go nuts...

I threaten to move out everytime my husband gets sick! Hope everyone else in your house stays well and glad you are feeling better.

Punkin woke up with a poop at 1:30 and then puking at about 4:00. I thought he was over it as he has been fine since Sunday morning.

I'm just waiting on me and Hubby to get it.

Hope you are feeling better now!

Yuck. I hope Randy doesn't get it..for your sanity's sake. Sick hubbys? Are no fun. I hope you are back to the land of the living. And, I still haven't opened a single one of my books. You are far ahead of me!

I just read Amanda's blog about being sick ... now You're sick ... three of my four grandchildren are sick ... and I'm covered with hives from head to foot and scratching like an ape from the deepest jungle. I'm starting to think things can spread via the Internet...ugh! Hope you feel better soon. Healthy bloggers are better bloggers. Bilbo.

So glad you are feeling better, so sad you had to go through that strange sickness! Here's to hoping no one else in your house/family gets it, especially Randy! I gotta run now... I'm in fear I might catch whatever is spreading! ;P
