Yes, it’s true – I’ve been gone a while.
Oh — I don’t know. Maybe it’s the VIRULENT stomach flu coursing through my entire family.
Even the dog threw up. Seriously.
First it was my son. On vacation. In Florida. Perfect weather. Beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters. We stayed inside for almost the entire time. He was being sick to his stomach. I was expanding mine.
I mean, really, what else was there to do stuck in a condo with a sick kid while my husband and other kid went out to the beach and the pool and on a bike ride? Eat!!! (And no, I don’t blame hubby. Sick kids (at least mine) want their Mommy when they’re sick.)
Then we got home. Two weeks of family togetherness…finally coming to an end!
That’s when my daughter got the stomach flu. Then my husband. (the worst patient of all….but let’s not go there, shall we?)
We’re going on three weeks of someone in my family being sick to his or her stomach.
In other words, three weeks of me spending WAY too much time at home near the refrigerator, the pantry, the stash of Halloween Candy that never got eaten. Seriously.
All that Swine Flu and Pneumonia for nothing!!! At least after that I was thin. And I kept off half of it until this round of illness.
Now what I want to know is…where’s the colon cleansing stomach bug when I need it? Where’s the quick route to weight loss that I crave? Nope, it’s back to counting points and weighing portions.
Happy Spring and summer is just around the corner and I’m gonna have to put on a bathing suit everybody!
