I wish my day had been like this picture. Idyllic. Peaceful. Strolling through the English woods on a spring day kind of peaceful.

Hmm...not so much.

It's 10:53 p.m. My stomach is still doing it's seasick routine, one I've dealt with all day. I didn't go to work, slept in until noon, and laid on the couch all day long.

I really want to go to bed and sleep, but I have this feeling it's not going to be peaceful at all.

I finished the book I was reading - Ken Follet's The Eye of the Needle and also started another. But it wasn't easy with the headache and the stomachache combined. But you can only just lay there so long before you have to do something to keep your mind occupied. And watching t.v. just wasn't an option for me today. Had no interest in staring at the screen.

I hope I can go to work tomorrow. Not that I'm excited to go to work, but I hate being sick.

On the plus side, the kids got to stay home today since they didn't have school. My daughter didn't have to go to daycare all day long and my stepson didn't have to go to work with his dad. I'm sure they appreciated the break from the routine. :-)


  1. Hello there.. just wanted to say hi

  2. I wondered where the heck you were. I had so much news to tell you...well, not really. I didn't have anything to tell you. But I did wonder where you were. Sorry you felt so bad.

  3. Oh, poo! Sorry you're not feeling well, Melissa. :( I am very much like you in that I cannot stand to lie there sick and do nothing. Even if I have to reread it later when the lack of headache makes it all make sense.

  4. I remember seeing Eye of the Needle starring DOnald Sutherland when I was a kid and was mesmerized by it but I've never read the book.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

  5. :( Sorry you're sick! Hope you're better today.

  6. Hope you feel better soon.

  7. Hope you're feeling better Melissa!
