Well I tell ya... for a holiday off from work, and away from it all it has really sucked the big one so far!
Actually not the entire holiday but the past few days!
I had been on duty (which means I had a blackberry at my hip) from the 22nd until the 27th... and I tell ya, if the moon could of fallen from the sky it would of. I had so many phone calls to take care of things I never really felt like I was off of work! Good thing my boss is super awesome and is giving me 3 days of my annual leave back for doing that duty last minute! I have a feeling I am really going to need it!
Xmas day went quite well. the kids had a blast and I'll post some pics later and tell ya all about it in another post. I wasn't feeling all that hot though.. and considering I was on duty and couldn't drink I definantely couldn't blame it on that!
I woke up after 4 am with a real sour tummy and just achy and outta sorts.. after two hours of fighting the nausea, I took care of business. Well I didn't stop throwing up for 24 hours after that. Then the poopies hit and OMG.. I am so not gettin descriptive but let's just say that a doughnut pillow is my new BFF! I was up at 1 am last night feeling nauseated again and whammo.. SICK AGAIN!
I am all for letting nature take it course with these kind of bibits... but at 48 hours... YA I HAVE HAD ENOUGH! I had John get me some Imodium and gatorade, and I am just taking it easy waiting for everything to kick in.
So my question is.. AM I REALLY THAT BURNT OUT? This is the second time in a month that I have gotten seriously ill... is it time for me to finally just admit that enough is enough and I am not able to do it all? Why is that so hard for us to admit this to ourselves???
I had such high hopes for some awesome family time this holiday and while I'd love to go downstairs and join in the laughter that I am hearing I just can't! Thanks goodness I am married to an awesome man...he made a run to Costco today, got me some BRAT diet things, and came home with LOST Season 4 (total surprise). Guess if I have to nurse a sore toushy and sour guts.. I may as well take in some yummy Slater!
Sorry so down guys... here's hoping tomorrow is ten times better, and I can enoy the next wek off!
