I got the flu last Friday night. It's been two years from the last time it made a pass through my house and I really don't remember it being this bad. I woke up at about 2:30 in the morning and .......well let's just say I had an absolutely miserable night. I probably managed to get maybe an hour of sleep from about 3am on. Saturday I tried to relax and take a few naps but that didn't work out as well as I'd hoped. I could not sit still for longer than 20 minutes. My mouth, throat, stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys, and everything else related to the digestive system felt like they were on fire. I choked down 4 pieces of toast by 8 that night and that was about my limit.

Now five days later, it's working itself into my lungs, nose, and ear. My stomach is still sensitive enough that I'm still having trouble eating and as a result, I'm getting MEGA acid reflux. the flu must die. Someone in this world must kill it. GO GET THE FLU SHOT - you do not want this.

You know what's ironic? When you commit to your New Years resolution and try to live a healthier life with more exercise, better food choices, and one less bad habit.....and then you get sick, twice, in three months.....both times worse than you've ever had it.......

makes you seriously think about going back to eating pizza, tacos, and burgers.

I will probably have four, maybe five cups of coffee before the morning is up. I couldn't fall asleep last night - I think I got a total of 5 1/2 hours before dragging myself out of bed. Based on the normal 8+ hours I usually get per night, over the last three days I figure I've lost a cumulative total of about 6 and a half hours of sleep. That's terrible!

You know what else is terrible?! Nothing! Isn't that fabulous?! I'm happy about it. I haven't had any bad luck in a couple of days and it feels great. Life owed me one after the last couple weeks.

We went to Chicago last weekend and it was super fun. We got to stay with S&L at their spectacular townhouse apartment. I love the character & charm of the exposed brick & open ceilings - especially on the older, pre-war buildings. I'm not a fan of the lack of storage space but I would make myself into a minimalist reallllllly quickly if I ever took the plunge into that market. I wish downtown Detroit was like that. That would be AWESOME.

I never truly realized that a person with both heart and confidence, can be extremely intimidating.

Why is everybody being so mean? :-(

Kristie said that now I should be thinking that I'm in my "late" 20s.
I told her she's just jealous because she can't stop the big 3-0 from knocking down her door.

Rob came in the other day and told me he liked the way my hair was styled. Then he told me that it ages me. He laughed. I did not.

My little brother (23) told me I should think about joining AARP. He laughed. Again, I did not.

My inspector asked me if I had a good weekend. I told him it was my birthday weekend so I had fun. He asked me how many years young I was and I told him. He looked at me like "um, what?" and then he said something like "oh, super" and then walked away. What the???

Hmm. I don't know if I like this.
