I put together bags of candy for all the kids and D; he also got the chocolate motorcycle. I decorated the house, sent a card to my in-laws, sent ecards to D and the girls. I put together what I thought was a nice meal based on what everyone likes.
Eating dinner was a mistake, my stomach wasn’t ready for something like that. Then after cleaning up I spent the evening alone, doing laundry and basically wasting time online. As I said to a friend earlier, I’m not a drama queen or martyr, I’m not looking for sympathy and I don’t think I’m expecting too much.
For better or worse things change. Unfortunately I won’t be doing the ABCD Challenge. I’m very much curious to see everyone’s photos and am quite sorry I won’t be able to participate, that was something I’d been looking forward to doing.
There are now almost 150 comments I haven’t replied to and I’m sincerely sorry. I’m going to make a big effort to catch up but from now on the priority is to respond the same day.
I still have a low-grade fever, cough, headache, runny nose, and the previously mentioned stomach problems. I think at this point it’s safe to say I have the flu.
Sharing a video instead of a photo tonight, dedicated to C and N. Nice guitar and fantastic lyrics…
