An All Food-Poisoning Weekend...

* Or *

Somebody Give That Girl Some Flowers...


Yes, I got food poisoning once again. In case you're counting that would be the second time this year.

sigh.

On the heels of the sinus/lung infection, and the ongoing shoulder problems (I haven't told you about that though...left shoulder = lots of pain on and off = shoulder spasm = chiropractor) I am more than a little worn out...

Which irked me to no end as this was a weekend choc-full-o-plans (kind of like the coffee only not so nutty) Instead there was a short trip to the craft show with Rich on Saturday, no shooting of the Livestock Round-up at the rodeo grounds (but Rich kindly brought over ginger ale and soda crackers to help with the icky before he went) I woke up early to do a hike in Sycamore Canyon with Rich, Tom and DaNece on Sunday however...which left me feeling a little off again that afternoon, and I canceled my trip down to The Valley today (for a change of scenery) and am spending my day via remote location at the Airstream instead.

Rich convinced me that it may be better to stay in town since I was still feeling not up to 100%. I know he's right, I know that I want to go down to The Valley when I can not be afraid to eat something for lunch (at Wild Oats) and not be so exhausted that I can really relax and enjoy what I went down there for in the first place...But, I still feel guilty for taking the day off and not going anywhere or doing anything...Why is that? Why do I have such a hard time relaxing when I need to? And more importantly, why do I feel guilty for taking a day off and not having anything planned other than utter relaxation?

Does anyone else have this problem?

Oh Sadira, I'm sorry you've been sick!!! I hope you never ever get food poisoning again! At least not this year for sure!

Molly, who ALWAYS feels weird when sick, like there is SO freakin' much to get done and it all needed handled yesterday. Sigh.

Poor girl! Food poisoning is no fun! I hope it was short-lived!

It's okay to take a break! They re-energize you so that you can be more productive later on. So don't think of it as something to feel guilty about. Think of it as an "investment". Hehehe...

i love your quote from walt w... it sets a tone that is inviting.

when i was 18 i hung out with a group who practiced meditation and one of the things we did was to take well days, to just stay in bed and do nothing. it was impossible for most of us--i seem very good at it. :)

Food poisoning=hell on earth. So sorry, and hope you're feeling better soon. But take it easy on yourself, even when you've recovered.
