We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Program...

Sorry guys and gals, but no Pinocchio today. Yeah, yeah, I am like so sure ya'll are disappointed in that one.

The fact is, I have nothing to give right now; at this very minute in time. I am empty.

Work is crazy busy right now which has both good and bad issues associated with said business. Yesterday, I went into the office after a morning meeting, ate some pizza and proceeded to spend about 30 minutes in the bathroom puking. I knew I wasn't feeling good when I ate it, but I was hungry and it was there. So there I am, with my face pressed into the tile floor, struggling to get my nylons off and I just started crying. I hate being sick and since no one else got Puke-face from the food, I figured that it was just me.

I got home at about 6:30 last night and was in bed an hour later. But I couldn't sleep. My tummy hurt!!! And then, as I laid there in bed, stomach rumbling, something on television reminded me of my grandmother and I started crying. God I miss her so much it takes my breath away at times. It's been about a year and a half since she died and while it has gotten better with time, the grief sometimes sneaks up on me and grabs me by the throat.

So there I am, in bed, sick, miserable, pukey and crying. What a day! After 3 or 4 hours of stomach cramps and self-flagellation, I wanted some toast. So being the diva I am, I picked up the phone and called my butler, AKA the hubby, on his cell phone. He was laughing as he answered the phone:

Mr. ADW: "Um, Hi?"
ADW: "What are you doing?"
Mr. ADW: "I was in the bathroom, and then I heard my phone ringing, so I answered it."
ADW: "Can you make me some toast?"
Mr. ADW: "Sure, I'll bring it up in a minute."

5 minutes later, he walks upstairs with my toast. I eat my toast, start to feel a little better and fall asleep.

Sometimes love is just there. And even if the person who loves you doesn't know it, their love for you, put into action, can make it all better.

I want to apologize for not commenting on your posts. I do read them as often as I can, but my schedule sucks major ass right now, and having some kind of stomach bug on top of it isn't helping. I have to be in Columbus this next week and I won't have much, if any time to visit you guys. Hang in there with me if you can.

See you soon!!

Oh, and go visit my friend Britt and lift her spirits as well. She is fucking awesome and if you live under a rock and don't know her, get over there and leave a few nice words for her.

I <3 you. I'm sorry you feel crummy. But husbands do tend to make it all better, at least for a couple of minutes :)

Poor girl. :( Feel better soon!
I love that you called your hubby on his cell AND he brought you toast. So sweet. Just take care, the interwebs can wait!
(btw, I still miss my grandma and it's been 16 years--I suppose that's not very encouraging, but I feel your pain!)

My wife calls my home office number from her cell when she's across the house all of the time. I think we just need either an intercom system or a really large bell for her to ring.

Hope you feel better.

BottleBlonde said...

Awwwwww ADW! Take care of yourself, my sweet. That flu is BAD. Mine has lasted for two weeks. TWO WEEKS. So do yourself a favor and rest as much as you possibly can.

The part about your grandmother made me sad. I miss mine, too, and it's been four years since she passed. :-(

Crunchy BC said...

Get ahold of yourself, dammit! OSU vs. Michigan is only one week away!

abstractjenn said...

ADW I hope that you feel better. Sounds like being sick dropped your defenses (hence all the crying. It was good for you to get it all out. I hope that you feel better soon - and I'm glad Mr. ADW is so good to you.

"Work is crazy busy right now..."

Seems like there's a lot of that going around. I guess it's the time of year.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Morning sickness, nausea, and weird food cravings?? I think we all know what that means!

That's right, ADW is dying!!!

And to top it off the Buckeyes go down to the Fighting Illini.

George said...

The only think worse than puking is having the trots at the same time.

Get better, big week next

Miss Britt said...

Awwww sweetie. I hope you feel better. I think it's super cute you linked to me AND apologized to everyone for not commenting.

Seriously, we're not going to forget about you that quickly. ;-)

The Charming Hedonist said...

Feel better soon, love! And, kiss that wonderful man of yours.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

ILL - INI!!!!!

Hope you feel better.

It sounds like you got yourself a good man. He's a lucky guy too, because didn't you give him a lap dance once?

That's what it's all about right there. He brings you toast, you shake your tits in his face.

That's the very glue that holds a marriage together.

I hope you feel better soon!

Make your old man cater your every need! A nice massage won't hurt either!

I hope you feel better soon chickie, I really do.

I also cry for my nan. She died nearly 5 years ago. I miss her so much it makes my heart hurt as well.

Glamourpuss said...

Oooh, I hope you feel better soon. Poor thing. Keep hubby on standby.

There's no puking in blogging, there's no puking in blogging! Just like there's no crying in baseball.

The healing powers of toast... got to love it! :)

Open Grove Claudia said...

I hope you are feeling better! I'm so very glad your hubby was supportive. He's really great.

Samantha_K said...

I'm glad Mr.ADW was on the ball and helped you out!
Feel better!!

marky said...

Losing to the FIGHTING ILLINI has gotten you down but you will feel better when you beat Michigan.

Memphis Steve said...

Sorry to hear that you're sick and super busy. Now I know why you aren't visiting me. I was gonna come over and smash your windows, but I feel guilty for that now. I hope you're feeling better. I thought only ugly people got sick, but I guess I was wrong.

Memphis Steve said...

Sorry, I wasn't finished yet. My dad died about a year and half ago. Sounds like he died around the same time as your grandmother. It bothers me all the time. I know how you feel. I hate it.

marky said...

I know it's hard to lose, but Sweetie, the Fighting Illini are just so powerful. I know it's hard to see the Buckeyes look like a bunch of girls but they will have to get their balls (and their jock straps) back from the Fighting Illini and take it to Michigan like big boys!

Moi said...

Hope you are feeling better soon - I miss your funny blogs and A-grade cussing.... :)

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

I raise a toast to your wonderful marriage. That's love that I read right there.
