So, I was sick for the past 2 days! No idea what brought it on, but my body woke me up at 2am on tuesday (that's never a good sign!) and from that point on, until 8pm the same day - 18 hours!! - I was running to the bathroom. NOT FUN! Even drinking water to stay hydrated was enough to start my stomach gurgling. I finally fell asleep on the sofa for several hours, then made my way to the bed at 4 am this morning. I took today off work also, and then proceeded to sleep until noon! I'm definitely feeling better now, but I sure as hell hope that I'm not sick like this again for a LONG time.

Today was THE weirdest day! Traffic crawled on the way to the office, so I was a little late. Then everyone was in a cranky mood. Seriously! EVERYONE!! It got to the point where every single one of my co-workers had their headphones in, listening to their iTunes! LOL. I sure hope tomorrow is better!

I'm home sick today- after a weekend of not feeling particularly good either. When I woke up this morning, I just knew I was going to call in sick. I feel awful. But I'm also drained. So I went back to sleep until 11:30 am. I'm feeling a little better. I'm sure by tomorrow I'll be "right as rain".

Valentine's Day does not bring out the best in me! I'm sure, if I had a boyfriend, I'd be all excited and buying him cute gifts - and all excited about what he would give to me. But I'm single, so I'm not excited. I'm bitter. Happy Fucking Valentine's Day!

This week my beautiful cousin Shirley lost her battle with lung cancer. She was 52. She was an amazing woman, a great Mom, and recently became a grandmother for the first time. I have many happy memories with Shirley and her 2 bothers and 2 sisters. They became more like siblings to my family than just cousins. When they got together with my brothers and sisters, the 13 of us were inseparable. Her father was in the Air Force, and they were always on the move. I have memories of us visiting them all over the US. She had an amazing husband, and 3 beautiful kids. She and I could always pick right up where we left off - no matter how much time was in between. I visited her at their home in France in 1991 - she opened her home to me, and I can remember staying up late and laughing and telling stories. We took a walk one day, and she grabbed my hand and held on. It wasn't odd for us, but she whispered to me "Just watch my nosey neighbor bitches come outside any minute now. they'll want to know who the handsome man is I'm holding hands with. the man who is not my husband." we said hello, but she never told them who I was. She was amazing! I love you Shirley! (the pic I've posted is the 13 of us together as kids - circa 1968. I'm in the back row on the right - on my sister Anna's lap. Shirley is right next to me, holding my sister Geri.)
