When Everything is Going My Way.....

I get sick!
At least that is what happened this last week. I was having a great weekend but it ended on Monday with a horrible stomach bug. I woke up at 6 am after a fitful night of sleep and really you don't want to know the rest. Just know that for almost 24 hours I couldn't go to far from a bathroom. Then when that subsided I had a headache and sore throat that could have killed a lesser person or at least if felt like it.

Now that I have had a few small but solid meals and plenty of liquids I am feeling human again. Amazingly my chickens didn't die and my dog is still okay. If my hubby was not awesome they might have been really hungry by today. My husband came to my rescue and went to the store to get me the stuff that sounded good like Popsicles and chicken noodle soup. He also made me Jello and ran to McDonald's to get me a chicken salad for my first solid meal. He didn't check on the chickens as much as I do but he did make sure they had food and water a few times a day. He also took care of the dog so I am happy.

Clean Up Time

My hubby did a great job of taking care of us and he even finished the laundry that I started...well he put it in baskets. Now I have to finish the laundry and clean the mess that has accumulated in the two days I was super sick. I have started with cleaning the chicken brooder and a really good wash on the food and water dishes. I have laundry in the washer, I went to the post office to drop off the stuff I sold on eBay and I went to the grocery store. I still have a ton to do but I already feel very tired stupid stomach bug has me wiped out.

Hope everyone else is having a better week than I am. Hopefully by Friday I will be caught up on regular chores and back to myself again!
