Whew !!!! I surely thought this new year was going to start off really bad for me when I woke about 1:30am this morning with an upset stomach. I couldn't think of anything I had eaten that might have caused it so I resolved to myself that I had picked up that dreaded stomach bug I have heard so many folks talk about.
After about 3 trips to the bathroom I decided I had better wake hubbie before he was scraping me off the floor somewhere,passed out from gagging. So far I hadn't thrown up but I felt like it was coming.
After he followed me to the bathroom about 3 more times, thankfully I must have finally gotten whatever it was out of my system because I suddenly felt my stomach settling down a bit.
Finally after about another hour I dozed back off to sleep and slept through the night with no further interuptions. Although this morning I feel very week and am gingerly putting anything in my stomach.
I did laundry and hubbie helped do some house cleaning this morning as I had to rest several times.
We fixed black-eyed peas, collard greens and cornbread to go with the pork and hubbie and I had lunch all to ourselves today. #1 son's family are making a trip to Ikea in Charlotte today, daughter has ball practice from 11 to 1 today and #2 son is enjoying his scarce day off and coming for supper.
At least hubbie and I can reap the health,wealth and luck benefits from our lunch,which was delicious!
Shortly after lunch we got the news of a terrible wreck on one of the nearby roads. This milk hauling truck belongs to a friend of ours.
The scanner had been jammed with accidents all day on the rain slick roads and this rain is going to continue through the night.
I took it easy this afternoon as I am still not feeling up to par but have been able to eat pretty much anything I wanted. I still can't imagine what it was I ate that made me so sick.
Daughter came by about mid afternoon and ate her lunch.
In this picture Flash is showing his displeasure with the rainy day.
The high reached 46 this afternoon but didn't feel that warm with the cold rainfall.
#2 son came by and had supper with hubbie and I as #1 son's family called and said they weren't going to make it back in time.
This has been a nasty day to begin the new year ,but it will be a good night to snuggle under the warm covers.
Back to the school schedule in the morning with an early alarm time. Hope g-son is ready to go back!
Thankful to God for all my blessings in the past year and looking forward to what He has in store for me and my family in 2013.
Good Night and God Bless.
