wake me up on monday
oh dear, what a weekend. i've relapsed into illness, and even took a trip to the emergency room. after seven hours of being poked, prodded, scanned and ignored, i left with the same knowledge that i had when i entered. i had an unidentified virus and some sort of myalgia. saturday was spent feeling so nauseous that i couldn't even read or watch movies. i spent the whole day curled up on the couch, moaning, and coming in and out of a troubled half sleep. i was finally able to eat a bowl of soup at 10pm.
today i am feeling less nauseous, but am still plagued with leg pain, fatigue and headache. i just don't know what's going on with me. i'm generally extremely healthy. i'll get hit maybe once a year with the flu bug, but it comes and then it goes.
so it's been a real black hole of a weekend so far. i really want to begin sewing some place mats and napkins from bend the rules sewing, holiday gifts i have up my sleeve. but i'm lucky if i can make it as far as the kitchen for a glass of water. right now i'm lying on the couch with the computer on the coffee table, arms stretched out to reach the keyboard. it's a pathetic site.
yesterday tashi went to a birthday part where the kids all got to cook their dinner and dessert. she came home with a chef's hat and lots of inspiration. this morning she made pancakes which i sadly couldn't eat. i'm craving avgolemono, a greek lemon-rice-chicken soup. she's determined to make it for me for lunch.
