WHO looks that good when they have the stomach flu??? WHO??? I found that picture and thought it was amusing. Next time, that's the look I'm going for.
I'm about to overshare, but not in a gross way. So...The Hubster, wonderful man that he is, decided to surprise me with a surprise birthday party (which is now being called a barfday party) on Saturday. GREAT IDEA! Super sweet. But then he needed my help with planning so there went the original surprise part. I was very impressed that no one said anything to me about it (points to all my friends!) and some even tried to pretend they knew nothing about it when I brought it up.
Anyway, I get home from wrapping and the house is decorated like this!
How sweet! He did a great job...but...
Someone brought a BEAST into my house. Feeling that they couldn't miss the party, they came even though they weren't feeling well.
I got the call the next morning - stomach flu. MY WORST FEAR. Happy Birthday to ME! I sweated it out...and got it Sunday night. Oh, it was violent and painful and no fun!!!!
This is what I looked like in reality.
Only probably not even that good.
The best thing about being sick? When you're just starting to feel better. The storm has lifted. You know it's over. The major part anyway.
I had brand new pajamas from Leslie! Ooooh, how I loved those pajamas. I appreciate them even more now!
I got CANDLES from Mere and Mel - those candles were going to be my writing candles, but they ended up being my sick day candles. I have all kinds of ideas for my rewrite thanks to those lovely candles!!
Other favorites (not for my birthday, but from being sick):
Rice with Butter
But the BEST present that I got was...
My photography will never win me any prizes. This was the best of the bunch.
Nutschell stood in line and got me an autographed copy of Torment! Lauren Kate was even nice enough to write "Happy Birthday"! How cool is that!?! Made my birthday!
I'm sorry I haven't felt up to visiting everyone's blogs! I promise to try over the course of the day today. For now, I'm crawling back into bed in my lovely new pajamas!
