So far so good

The Vomiting Queen seems to have missed this little bug that showed its ugly head in my house Monday night - at least so far.  One night I felt queasy, but it is hard to know if I was fighting off a virus or just talking myself into being sick.

I hate that kind of GI upset - it makes you just want to lay down and die.  So hopefully I haven't jinxed myself by talking about it.  If I get through tonight (72 hours), I will consider that I missed that bullet.

I did, however, make some really interesting discoveries since Monday night.

Because no one wants to be sick or around someone who is sick ... or might be sick soon, I cancelled my life - trying to stay away from people and waiting out the incubation period.  And big chunks of my days opened up.   Wow, it felt odd.  I kept thinking - is this what if feels like to be only responsible for me?   I discovered I had time for things like walking, picking up my house, cleaning, weaving, reading.  I struggle getting that stuff into my day at times.

Next week I will joyfully return to my regular schedule (hope my dear grand dogs don't forget who grandma is.)
