I'm back from my trip.
I, unfortunately didn't bring back sun, instead the opposite, cold bitter wind.
More freezing Temperatures!

I am very under the weather, matter of fact, I spent the last leg of my trip quite ill.
Still feeling terrible, the flight home was dreadful!
Thankfully my girlfriend was very supportive and helpful to aid in the 3hour and 55minute return flight home.

I'll have more "inspiring" posts in a few days, for right now my ears are clogged, I'm shaking and with a fever, I didn't cave and smoke with them, even though they all smoked all weekend.

Unfortunately being sick sucks, but being sick away from home sucks worse!

Welcome To Crustybeef~

Oh honey, I'm so sorry you're sick. I can't imagine how you're feeling, especially on the heels of your last sickness. I want to come out there and take care of you!

I'm so proud of you for not smoking! Woo hoo! Were your friends amazed at your resolve?

Mary said...

I'm so sorry your trip ended with you being ill. Good girl for not smoking. I do hope you had a good time with your girl friends. Get well soon and then tell all.

Now, I'll try this again...
I am so sorry Fredrick Flu got ahold of you. He is a nasty one too. If you're not better tomorrow...get some antibiotics in you. Its this weather...seems like everyone has gotten sick this winter. You wouldn't think germs could live in this. Get well soon.

Snuggle up in bed, keep warm and toasty and REST, REST, REST. I'm so sorry your trip was partly ruined through sickness but I am very proud of you for not smoking. I have had a little relapse on that score I am ashamed to say but onward and upward. I will try again.

Awww, poor Crusty!! You take care of you, do you hear me! Those boys need Mama in tip top shape. How are they? Hoping no one else in your fam gets it.

Prayers on the way!

Hope you feel better soon. I know all about falling ill away from home. It's horrible. Take care.


Cheryl: They were astonished by my superhuman powers! I had a moment or two (when drinking wine) when I thought to myself, "screw it, give me one.." but them I waited for the craving to pass, and I was good to go! I can officially claim myself as a nonsmoker!! :)

Mary: My friend's husband uploaded all our pictures onto a cd and as long as I get their permission to post their pictures, I'll be sticking them up along with my words..hopefully keeping it short!! :)

Golden Girl: I plan to ring our doctor this am as I am still quite under the weather. The descent did a number on my ears, and I still can't hear properly...It was a great trip, we surprised our friend (which is why I couldn't talk about it here as she reads this blog) and it was quick, but worth it!

gypsy: no reason to feel ashamed...we all relapse. I can't tell you how many times I stopped and have ALOT going on right now,..maybe when things settle down or even themselves out, then it would be good to refrain from smoking...I'm with you on it's a VERY HARD THING TO DO, that is to quit..VERY HARD!!

Selma: WHy thank you very much!! Like anything else, this to shall pass!


Portia said...

Aw, that stinks. I hope you are able to get some rest. I am sending you some healing vibes...and some virtual herb tea:) OK, Chicken noodle soup too:)

I am sooooo impressed with your NONSMOKERING SELF!! Awwwwesome!! I hope to join you soon. Really. I'm *almost* there.

I hope you are feeling much, much better very, very soon:)


Portia: Thanks my dear! It's nothing that I can't manage, but it was a shame to have cost me a few days with my old friends..I'm certain it would've been worse had I caved and smoked!
Happy new week!! :)


KYRIE said...

Gosh. That is terrible! Getting sick back to back is hell! Take care dear Crusty. Did u manage to eat sth? If u couldn't just try some soup at least. Don't drink cold water, take hot water (not warm)instead.


Kyrie: Thanks for the suggestion! Funny, last evening after returning from my trip I craved hotdogs..but after taking a bite I realized I should have had soup. Today has been tea, coffee, tea and soup with some saltines, and a hot shower...steam...
I've missed you dearly! I'm glad to see you out and about, by the way!!


Mo said...

Thanks for stopping in this morning. I hope to see you again.

But more than that, I hope you get to feeling better. Being sick is never fun, especially when you are traveling or have been.

Take care of you!


Hi mo! It was nice to get to know you!! Brad's the best, isn't he?
I have never been this sick before while out of town, and to think it had to happen when flying out to surprise my best friend..c'est La Vie!
