Blessings for Gatorade. And popsicles. Those two amazing culinary inventions were the only things that kept me alive yesterday. Methinks I was either food poisoned at Frank’s birthday party OR it was some sort of virulent flu. Let’s just say….it was nasty nasty nasty. For awhile, even water was troublesome. Since dehydration is an issue with something so violent under normal circumstances, it’s even worse in 102 degree heat. I was concerned when my skin “tented” on the backs of my hands. A clear sign of trouble.
Everything was cramping. My knee and hip joints were on fire. The headache was monstrous. Not the most pleasant of days. I am up and about today. A few saltines last night and some mac and cheese this morning have decided to stay put. I even had a cup of coffee that took care of the headache.
I look like a goddess this morning – hair all stiff with sweat. Lovely.
A vision of beauty
So it’s time for shower. Off to get something done.
