We didn't do much around our house for NYE. I was in the middle of my 6 day work week and I was also sick. And I mean sick. Bad sick. Felt like I was going to die sick. Get the picture? Just in case you don't, I'll go into detail....:)
I apparently got the "little" virus that Annie had before Christmas. I started feeling bad last Thursday. I had diarrhea all day long and had no appetite. Luckily, I was off work that day. Friday morning I woke up still having diarrhea really bad, but I was feeling weak and exhausted on top of that. I just had to call in to work. I would have spent most of the day in the bathroom anyway.
It was nice to rest. I laid on the couch all day (I didn't have enough energy to do much else) and watched old Friends reruns. Friends always brings me to my happy place and cheers me up. I felt better Saturday and Sunday- I was able to work, but I still didn't have my appetite back and my stomach didn't feel completely back to normal. I took a turn for the worse again on Monday. I made several overnight trips to the bathroom Sunday night, and then threw up Monday morning. By the time I was heading out for work, I was feeling so weak from losing so much fluid. I was even a little dizzy and lightheaded. It took so much energy to talk and at times my head felt fuzzy. I had been trying to drink water over the past few days, but I think it was inevitable that I was going to get dehydrated when I had been losing so much fluid. I seriously thought I was going to have to be admitted to the hospital and they were going to have to give me IV fluids. Seriously. Ok, so maybe that's the drama queen in me talking. Either way, I do not ever want to be that sick again for that long.
I made it through my work day NYE (although I don't know how.) Brandon had plans to go to the Liberty Bowl with his dad, but his dad ended up getting sick (same thing I had) so they had to sell the tickets. Just as well. It was cold and rainy anyways. After I put Anniston to bed, I crashed soon after. I don't even remember falling asleep. What a way to bring in the new year! Oh well- all I know is that I FINALLY felt better Saturday. For the first time in DAYS! I had to work New Year's Day as well, but it was an easy day. I had a great group of techs working with me and we were super slow. I even bought everyone lunch that day!
I'm not much for New Year's Resolutions so I rarely ever make any. But I am looking forward to see what 2013 has in store for us. I'm optimistic that it will be a great year!
I was so grateful to be starting the New Year off well! I get a 3 day weekend and am looking forward to a little down time at last!
