Sick, that's what I am. Some kind of stomach flu. My mouth and ass have been racing to see which one can empty my stomach out faster. It hasn't been fun at all. Projectile vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and fever just to name a few of my favorite symptoms. My wife and mother in law both came down with the same flu, hours apart. Taking care of Max on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning was really a lot of funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
Thank God he didn't get it!
But I've had a lot of time to think during this very dark time in my life... We all need to be kinder to our asses. I'm going to go back to basics. Each and every time I go to the bathroom I'm going to treat my nether region the same way I treat Max's. Butt Paste, Diapers, wet wipes, the works! No more of this 2 grit toilet paper for my ass. Only the best!
This whole episode hasn't been a complete disaster though, I think I lost about 10 pounds on my ginger ale and chicken broth diet. I also think there's some color returning to my face today. That's always a good thing. Hopefully I'll be able to eat something a little sturdier for dinner tonight. Maybe some jello. Yum. But part of me wants a bloody steak and a baked potato, so I must be feeling a little better.
How's your week going? What epiphanies have you had this week?
For those who were unable to attend, here is a short video of dinner at Chez Corky the week:
