Saturday Night Fever


I came down with the creeping crud before we went to Guatemala. It hung around the week were there. And it rose to the top in Las Vegas. The seven different flights, five airports, and two hotels in less than two weeks didn't help matters.

Growing up a Christian Scientist has not made me good at accepting being sick. But I spent last night in the grips of a fever that had me seeing things and talking in tongues. So I had to finally admit I was sick. And it sucks.

I think the worst part of having a fever is what it does to your dreams. I was drenched in sweat, caught in an endless series of repetitive dreams. And I can't remember a single one.

I went into work yesterday and people reacted to me like I was a leper and avoided me like the plague. But Tess has been taking care of me, filling me with Veraflu, tea, orange juice, and chicken soup. I am lucky.

Anyway, I'm home. My fever has broken and I've stopped coughing up a lung every ten seconds. So I guess I'll live.

And maybe by tomorrow I will blog in a semi-normal fashion.

Whatever that is.

So sorry you haven't been feeling well. Tess sounds like a keeper, but I think you already knew that. :)

Please rest and feel better soon.

Thanks Hayden, but normal is a relative term :)

Whitesnake, Naughty bits? What naughty bits? This is a wholesome web site.

Actually there are no naughty bits...sigh.


Lights, Remember, what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas. That's why you have to go back to Las Vegas, to find out what happened in Las Vegas while you were there the first time. But when it really comes down to it, the only thing that really happens in Las Vegas is you spend lots of money, drink a bit too much and gamble responsibly. I did go to the Cheesecake Factory in Ceasars Palace. That was fun.

Thanks so much Madame Butterfly! And happy belated birthday. Hope you are having a great holiday.

And thank you, too Anna. Tess is a keeper. I have been resting and hope to be back to work by Tuesday. Hope all is well with you.
