It was a crazy, short, trip, full of ups, downs, rain, and a case of what I now know to be food poisoning. I didn’t see everyone I wanted to see, but otherwise it was fun. I hated the timing of my illness- 4am Saturday morning when I was set to leave that day to head back home I wake up with a seriously upset stomach. I’m not going into the details, but needless to say, I am sure that I wanted to die. I got very little sleep that night, and tried to sleep later, thinking, I’d just leave later that day instead of in the morning. But I couldn’t rest. I didn’t feel good, but all I could think about was getting back to be sick in my own bed.
Then there was the truck seat that broke when my dad was packing me. In the rain.
Oh, the pouring rain. Rain. Rain and more rain.
So I left, that afternoon to go north. I struggled with stopping off in Duncan, Oklahoma to see my awesome friend Lacee. But it was raining…still, and I didn’t know how bad the storms would get, and I didn’t know if I was contagious. I spent the better part of the afternoon in the truck, hating myself for being sick, not going to see my friend and downing tums so I wouldn’t get sick. I didn’t know if I was getting the flu or if I simply had a case of food poisoning. I wondered about whether or not I had the flu because I was achy on top of being sick to my stomach.
The good news is, the next day I woke up with a better feeling stomach; all the aches were gone and I was able to drive the rest of the way home. I was glad that I had escaped without getting the flu.
Of course the first thing I did when I got to the house was go see my new baby, Bam Bam. He is just the cutest thing ever. I adore him. After Dolce was born last year, I just knew that there was never going to be a cuter baby than her, but you know what? He is cuter!
I’m glad to be home. Glad I’m not sick. Glad to be back with Zach.
