An Unexplained Absence

My mom called last night to see how we were doing. It was a long weekend and I hadn’t blogged in three days so we must have done something fun… right? I wish I could say yes. I wish I had tales to share from a grand camping adventure or something equally exciting. We can usually pack a lot of things into a three-day-weekend.

Instead, I decided (apparently) that it would be more fun to stay home and be sick. Not the stuffy nose and sore throat you can ignore and go about your business sick, but the full-blown moaning and groaning and can’t get out of bed kind. My original hope was that it would only last Saturday, but no such luck. This wonderful misery I had paired myself up with decided to stick around for the entire weekend. I was practically begging Rob to knock me out with a frying pan, but he wouldn’t oblige. His response was, “Maybe we should take you to the hospital.” Men…

Rob was nice enough to take the kids fishing. Twice. Without me. Sniff. I’m glad they went though. Sniff. Tomorrow I will share some pictures with you. Sniff. They caught fish. Sniff. Without me. Sniff.

So that is where I have been. On my deathbed. Well, far from it I know, but it sure felt like it at the time. But now, the rain has stopped and the sun is out and I am vertical once again. A little more slumped than usual I fear, but vertical none the less. As for blogging, I am back… I think. At least I have enough energy to sit at the computer again. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. And, I know it’s not official yet, but… Happy Summer!!!  

Those just happen to be two of my very favorite words. 🙂

  1. Glad to hear you are feeling better and back with us.
    I think you gave whatever you had to me – was in bed yesterday feeling like crap, got up today for 3 hours and now going back to bed. I hate getting ill-miss out on too much!

    • I am so sorry you feeling icky! I definitely didn’t want to share that crud with anybody. Hope you are up and feeling better soon! You are right, though, so much is going on while we are stuck in bed!

  2. So sorry that you have not been well and I am pleased that you are now feeling a lot better. At least it made something to blog about

    Stay well

    love P

  3. I’m so glad you’re feeling better. I’ve missed your blogs! I know this isn’t your favorite subject to blog about, but good to see you back! See you soon!!! Love you loads!:)
