monday started out just fine...

the day after superbowl... i have been known (just about every year previously) to be nursing a hangover. to me, football and beer are like peanut butter and jelly. 
those who have been paying attention already know (then) that i have been on a bit of a personal mission to cease my alcoholic drinking while i find mental and physical health this year. 
therefore... i stayed sober. yep. i did. (i will admit to having a sip of the hubs kraft beer, but it was only a sip). 
anywho, this is beside the point.

the point, is that i woke up this morning, feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready to take on another week. the Arizona skies were beautifully blue with hints of white and gray clouds that would soon enough cast shadow on the valley. i got dressed and ready just like any other morning. nothing too difficult other than i changed my multi-vitamin to a different brand. no biggie. 
as the kids and i were getting ready to leave the house, with so much as less-than-a-minute's warning, i ran to the downstairs bathroom and hung my head over the toilet allowing the water bottle and half and orange i just ate to revisit the 'outside' world. ugh. in my mind, no doubt it was the change in vitamin. it's happened before. i didn't even get a chance to start on my protein shake. grrr.
after that i felt better. drove to work in a good mood. got to the office, checked my messages and got started on my work. after a cup of coffee and yet another water bottle, the pukey started again. 'what the cheese!' i decided to eat and apple, and that didn't hold down for very long. with the second wake of gross, my body felt like it got hit by a boxer on a punching bag, and my feet felt like they were in a tub of ice water. body chills and aches took over... rapidly. it took the heater on HI and being on the phone to keep me awake and able to drive the 30+ minutes home to my nice soft bed...
which is where i've been and where i will remain for the rest of the day.
i apologize for the subject matter. i really wanted to blog, but honestly can't think much past how i'm feeling right now. cross my heart i'll blog something more cheerful when i feel better (fingers crossed it's tomorrow).
hope your monday was better than mine. tell me about it... cheer me up!! :-}
