9 Pounds

Yep...9 pounds.

That's how much weight I lost while visiting friends in Minneapolis.

(yes, Mom I was in Minneapolis when I was sick. Somehow in the feverish phone call I didn't communicate that to you....sorry)

How? How did I lose so much weight in 2 days, you ask?

Well...I had a wonderful little stomach virus.

Complete system purge you might call it.

Great fun.

Donna had a funeral to attend and I went along to help her drive, keep her company, visit some friends of ours and keep her up all night as I vomited up the roots of my toes.

There was a lot of laundry, quality time on the cold tile floor in the basement bathroom, fever, chills, not much whining as I didn't have the energy for speech and a poop story that is, in a very twisted way, perfect for a Saturday Night Live requiring hazmat suits. (that's a girl's weekend story, gals!)

I'm home, lighter and trying some toast for breakfast.

We'll see how it goes.

I am home today with the same thing. 12 hours of puking up your toes - NOT my idea of a good time. I'm just getting some water down. This SUCKS!!

Kathy said...

Oh, you poor things!!!

I think I'll keep my cold, thank you!

Hope you both feel better soon!

Ooops... too many type-os...

It's all true. And you did a very good job of keeping your whining to the alloted minute at the top of each hour on the trip home. :-) Glad you're starting to feel better...
