Sorry I’ve been somewhat absent of late, but my busy work schedule has kept me hopping since the Holidays… well… at least until this current seasons variety of the Flu caught up with me. Oh yeah… Now THAT slowed me down alright…
Why I always seem to be so darn susceptible to these dire plagues has never been terribly clear to me, but almost regularly every year I always seem to catch one right around my birthday. What’s worse…. this time out I managed to share it with Carolyn too. 😦
That has pretty much had both of us housebound the last week or so feeling mutually crappy and leaving us with zero energy or ambition to do much more than sleep, cough, puke, and…. at least in my case… produce seemingly endless buckets of gooey green snot. (Just as fun and attractive as it sounds….)
Given this… it’ll probably be a couple of days before I get back to doing much of anything requiring coherent thought like writing a review or the like. Till then…. stay warm… stay hydrated… and stay healthy o’ Gentle Visitors.
November marches on… and, at least for the last week or so, it feels a bit like it’s marching right over the top of yours truly. I’ve been sick……
Usually I’m a fairly healthy person. Ordinarily I shrug off exposure to things that leave others well and completely miserable, but…. when something does finally get a hold on me, it’s also just as vicious in it’s effects as anything you can imagine. I’ve been wrestling with one of those lately, and it’s added to my streak of bad luck here at the ol’ Litterbox, posting wise.
The doctor tells me it’s a “stomach bug”… something viral that just insists on running it’s own course. As it does that… it’s had me vomiting, suffering terrible diarrhea, and generally feeling achy and crappy all over. Naturally I’m not at work…. but trust me, I’m not doing much else these days either, except trying to sleep and keep something…. anything… in my stomach.
Here, on day 6, I’m feeling much better…. able to spend more than a few minutes out of bed (without my head in a bucket or my miserable butt on the toilet…) at a time…. and so I figured I’d check in and make a posting just to let people know I’m still very much alive and kicking and hoping to be back to my cheerful…. and normally healthy…. self soon with some new Reviews.
So… till then, may you all get your flu shots, eat well, and keep yourselves healthy and “Meow, meow for now”….
