Out from both ends

I came home yesterday evening with a sore and upset stomach, therefore, no yoga for me. I cooked a little dinner, green bell peppers stuffed with rice pilaf, seared marinated tofu and steamed soy broccoli. It was very good the first time I tasted it, less so later. I woke up in the middle of the night heaving dinner up, went back to bed only to wake up again for round two.

This morning I tried my damndest to get out of bed and go to work, only to get there and have my boss send me home. So, here I am, at home, on a Thursday, arguably the busiest day in my office as we prepare for the weekend. Thank goodness I was ahead before I left yesterday.

This isn't all bad, I suppose. I feel guilty for not being at work today, but at least I now have time to cozy up next to the furnace and work on my recipe stash, do a little laundry and try not to literally spill my guts everywhere.

Keep your fingers crossed, folks, that I can go into the office tomorrow.

Awwww! You shouldn't have gone to work in the first place!

I am surprised you managed to cook anything at all. Did you get a tummy bug?

Drink mint and chamomile tea, eat saltines...Hope you get better soon.

It was a terrible stomach bug. I cooked Wednesday night and had a bit of dinner despite my upset stomach, which was a bad idea. But after a day of rest and doctors orders, I'm back at the office. Thank goodness, too, because it was just chaos without me!

Good to hear you're better.
You are the "lynchpin" then?

lunaliar said...

Very much so... In fact, I am hoping against hope that the sniffles I have this morning don't develop into anything more. I'd love to be away from work, but I don't think I can afford to miss it.

Oh no, you don't need *that* now!
