I starting to finally feel a bit better today.  I don't have aches and pains from the flu.  I am getting a few hot flashes still but nothing like yesterday.  Speaking of yesterday, my trip home early from work was eventful.  Or not.  So I haven't been eating much this week as I don't have taste-buds and I just don't have an appetite from the flu.  So Wednesday I ate maybe half of a banana, half of my oatmeal and an apple.  That was good enough for me.  Yesterday though, I guess at the peak of my flu-bug, I guess my stomach was just uber sensitive and I ate half of my oatmeal, half of a banana (a joke, really) and my apple.  Well I should have been smart and decided to stray from acidity but I didn't.  So I left work early, same as I did on Wednesday.  I was feeling a bit nauseous in the morning, with waves of sweating but then I got on the bus (since the train schedule for where I live doesn't start the going-home schedule until 3:40 pm) and I think it was the vibration of the bus and my hot flashes that just sent me overboard.  I could feel myself getting hot and I took my scarf off and I started to gag.  Tried riding it out but it was not passing so I began to look for something to puke into.  Greeeeeeaaaaaattttt.  I hate people knowing that I'm physically getting sick or if you hear me.  I don't like or want anyone comforting me or rubbing my damn back when I'm heaving my cookies.  I feel like when you're throwing up, you're at one of your most vulnerable places.  And no one needs to see that shit.  And so, I've mastered the art of when I do have to vomit, I can do it fairly quietly.  LOL.  I should put that on my list of skills.   I didn't have anything to puke into and so I basically bunched my scarf and chuffed into that.  SO. HOT.  Thank GOD the bus wasn't wall to wall with passengers because no one noticed.  And I wasn't about to empty my bag and puke into that and then have to carry everything piece meal from my bag off the bus.  After the fact, I discovered that I had some dog poop bags in my jacket pocket, but the damage was done.  I felt glorious afterwards, though. :)

So I spent the rest of my night just resting and my mom came over for a visit but kept her distance.  This morning I feel a lot better, not 100% but definitely getting there.

Really looking forward to meeting some new clients this weekend, meeting some new babies, seeing some old, familiar faces.  I am most excited for this gal:

I'll be too busy to post anything this weekend, I'm sure of it, but I'll be posting pictures from the weekend likely on Monday or Tuesday.

Have a great weekend everyone!! xo


  1. The flu SUCKS. I got it coming home from our honeymoon and I was MISERABLE. I am so glad you're feeling better!

  2. Lindsay, thanks for stopping by Messy Mom. That situation on the bus so absolutely horrible. I am so sorry you had to go through that. :(

  3. Oh no! That situation on the bus sounds absolutely horrible! I am so sorry you had to go through that. Thanks for stopping by Messy Mom today!

  4. Ladies, thank you both. Still congested a bit today but thank god that flu is gone. It's never fun when you feel like you've been hit by a bus and you're fighting hot and cold sweats, nevermind vomiting in public and trying to conceal it. LOL!
