I had a wonderful weekend: saw some friends, saw my boyfriend & came home relaxed & ready to start another week of work. Only I haven’t been to work. In fact, I’ve called in sick to work for the last 2 days and for a very good reason. I have been sick. Not “Oh, I could go to work but I feel lazy” sick – you know what that is – but more like “I think I’ll wake up at 4:30 am with the most excruciating nausea and make love to the toilet for the better part of the day” sick.

Fun, huh?

It has been eons since I last experienced the stomach flu & I had forgotten just how nasty that bug can be. How on earth is one person supposed to manage both ends of their body at one time?! HOW?! Well, I won’t get into much more detail than that for fear of no one reading this blog again.

Today I am feeling better. Exhausted beyond all measure, but at least I am able to keep food down. And even though I’m not vomiting I decided to call in today. I know my body. I know how it works and after 29 years I know how long it takes for it to bounce back to normal. After spending a day with my face in the garbage can I decided that going in to work today probably wouldn’t have been the best idea. I need my energy back. I need a decent meal & a long nights sleep.

When you’re not feeling well – listen to your body. Don’t push yourself & for the love of all things holy WASH YOUR HANDS.

(Sidenote: I have been informed by PEAK College that due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control they have had to postpone their MARCH 1st Montessori Dementia Course to MAY 10th. Should you have any questions, pls contact them directly.)
