Stomach Bug Sunday

I'm back in the land of the living today after having a bit of a stomach bug over the weekend. Saturday morning I woke up and my stomach wasn't feeling great, but I had made plans to go to the gym with three of my friends and didn't want to back out on them. So, I went to the gym and then we went to Panera where I had a bagel and cream cheese. I showed a few signs of improvement, but by the afternoon, my belly was aching again. By Sunday morning, I was in virus mode and spent the day either in the bathroom or on the couch. 

I had a few kind souls check in on me Sunday. My friend Leah brought some chicken soup by and my cousin Lauren brought leftovers from Sunday dinner since I wasn't able to attend. I stayed home from work on Monday to make sure the virus was completely gone and ended up sleeping the majority of the day. I did manage to get out to the grocery store for about an hour since I hadn't had the opportunity to do my shopping over the weekend and needed to pick up a few things. I went back to sleep as soon as I got home from that outing. Then I got out for Bible study Monday night and went straight to bed after getting home. 

I made it in to work on Tuesday and had a productive day which was good because being out a day can really put a girl behind. Tuesday night I was supposed to go to the gym, but opted to go home and mow grass instead. The grass did not get mowed over the weekend because I was feeling bad and it was super tall from all the rain we got last week. So, rather than wait until the weekend when I would surely hate myself for not mowing sooner, I decided to grin and bear it and get it knocked out. 

Other than my virus, there wasn't a whole lot else going on over the weekend. Friday night I had dinner at my parents' house and watched the first half of the Madison Academy game on TV. I left at halftime and watched the second half at my house, falling asleep before it was over. Saturday we had a small gathering for my maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother's birthdays. I didn't stay long since my stomach was bothering me. Hopefully I didn't pass the virus on to anyone else and if I did, then I'm sorry!

Ugh! I hate the stomach bug! I'm glad you're feeling better. It's going around at the kids school and several of their classmates have had it. We are still healthy (knock on wood) over here.
