The Flu Strikes!

Oh my goodness! I have had a horrible time the past two weeks! Last Tuesday, I was struck with the flu (it felt like I was struck - I woke up fine, but by after lunch, I was in bed sleeping with a fever! It was crazy!). So I was literally sleeping for almost four days straight! My husband had to take Wednesday off of work to watch the kids and my MIL had them on Thursday. I couldn't stand up, I was so dizzy and fevery. By Friday, the fever had broken, but I still wasn't better yet. I even had to miss our church's annual all-day scrapbooking event on Saturday! I was so sad! By Tuesday this week, the illness seemed to be gone, but I've been really tired and weak still. I've been sleeping when the kids nap in the afternoon, and I've gone to bed right after them in the evenings, so I haven't had time to do any stamping for almost two weeks! I also missed an entire round of Barb's Bingo!

The good news is I've lost about seven pounds! Thank goodness for sickness weight loss! LOL! (I know, I'll probably gain it all back, but at least there's a little bit of a bright side!)

So, I haven't had much time for blogging, crafting, emailing, or anything. I'm going into withdrawal! LOL! I'm hoping to have some time this weekend to get back into the swing of things. I'm missing all of your blogs and seeing what you've been up to! I know Amy has tagged me, so I'll have to get that going this weekend as well.

Thanks for checking up on me! I hope you haven't forgotten about me, and I certainly haven't forgotten about all of you. Today, I actually managed to stay awake all afternoon, so it's looking hopeful! I'll see you all soon!
