Yesterday was my day off. We have two floating holidays which don’t roll over into the new year. I hadn’t used either of mine yet so I decided to use one yesterday.
I made not just one but three lists of “to-dos” – home, personal, Christmas.
I woke up, meditated and had breakfast. I didn’t feel 100% almost immediately. I attributed it to the coffee I drank. I’ve switched to organic 100% decaf at work but at home I only had regular decaf and I used 1/2 and 1/2 which I never do at work.
I was decided to move the gym to later in the day and prioritized some of the other tasks. I got through about 1/3 of what I wanted to when I felt so lousy that I just headed home and crawled into bed. That was the end of my day off.
I had pre-purchased tickets to a fund raising dinner for WriteGirl. I had a new dress I was looking forward to wearing. That was replaced by looking forward to throwing up so I could get rid of whatever was making me feel so sick. I got my wish but purging didn’t make me feel any better.
Finally, this morning, I think everything is out of my system.
Our department Holiday party is today. I know there’s going to be wonderful food but I doubt I’ll eat anything. Chicken broth sounds about my speed, that’s not likely to show up on the buffet.
Funny that I can travel far from home to Kenya and Greenland, eat strange foods and be exposed to parasites galore without having a day of illness but home for one day and bang, sick. Oh the universe does have a sense of humor!
