Sounds a little crazy right? Well, for those of you who know me...there's a story.
Sunday night, my girlfriend and I got together. We hadn't seen each other in a while and we needed to "catch up". We went to a place where we usually go and I ordered what I usually order - French Onion Soup and an Asian Chopped Salad. I've been eating this dinner there for YEARS!!!!. We did a little shopping after dinner and had a great time. After I went home, I realized that dinner seemed to be "sitting a little heavy" in my stomach, but I ignored it and went to bed around 11:30.
At 2:00 in the morning dinner was no longer "sitting", if you know what I mean. I was sooo violently ill, I couldn't even lay in bed. I went downstairs so I wouldn't disturb my husband and prayed for this to be over. Let's skip ahead to that afternoon (you really don't need the gory details of the morning). I was finally able to drink liquids. Gatorade (mixed with water) was my friend. I proceeded to eat 2 crackers and a few spoonfuls of chicken broth. Not what I had planned for Christmas Eve Dinner.
This was the first Christmas Eve EVER that I didn't make my traditional dinner. My poor family.
Fortunately, on Christmas Day I was feeling better. I was dehydrated and had a headache, but I was able to have the kids over and celebrate the holiday. My wonderful husband did the cooking and we had a great day.
Yesterday, I was exhausted, so I just spent the day on the sofa with my laptop. Today, I almost feel like a real person!
Now, there is a positive side to this story: I lost 2 pounds! How many people can say THAT at Christmas Time??????
So, Merry Christmas, Everyone! I hope you had a fabulous day. Wishing you all peace and love this holiday season and in the new year!
