Oh hello there.  If you haven’t noticed I’ve been a little MIA for the first part of the week.  Simply put, it’s because I felt like I was dying.  I’m much better now, but the past 48 hours have been hellish.  For the sake of this blog starting and ending on a positive note, let’s make this post a positive blog sandwich {you know, one thing positive, one thing negative, one thing positive}.

So for the first positive…rewind to this past Friday.

My friend, Jess {as in the one I’ve had for years but just recently became Facebook friends with}, is starting a new chapter in her life this week.  She’s a fellow Herd alum, but was also an employee with Marshall’s athletic department, and she’s just recently accepted a job offer with FSU!  A FLA native, I’m so happy that she’s able to go back to the sunshine state and still do what she loves.  We are all so proud of her!!!!  This past weekend was her last weekend in town, Molly had plans to come up but I wanted to surprise her for her last romp through Huntington.  {me=early bday surprise??? 🙂 }

{me, Molly, Jess, and Erika!}

As we all know, when it comes to my friends and Huntington, I can get weirdly nostalgic, so I won’t do it here.  BUT it was really nice to see my friends, and be there while one friend was closing a chapter in her life and moving on to another.  Can’t wait to visit you in FLA, Hessica…wahoo!

We then went over to my beloved Hagy’s house for Sunday dinner {former employers/owners of La Famiglia}, with our other friend, Kendall.  I absolutely adore that family, and love visiting with them in their home.  It honestly feels like you’re visiting with your own family at your own home.  A great way to end a weekend.

Now for the quick negative….

Without getting too graphic, I woke up with sharp pains at 4am on Monday and could not stop vomiting.  It was like The Exorcist for 24 hours.  I have no idea exactly what did it, but we’re just chalking it up to some random gnarly 24/48 hour stomach virus.  No one else that I was with this weekend got sick, but I somehow directed myself home.  I’ve pretty much seen cross-eyed for the past 48 hours, and unable to walk from one side of my apartment to the other without getting nauseous.  It was kind of scary, and I haven’t been sick like that in years.  The good news is, it’s clearing up.  However, blogging was the last thing on my mind.  If I had somehow gained enough sense to write, it would have been the most pessimistic thing you would have ever laid eyes on because I was in so much pain.

Now back to the positive….

Like I said, I can see straight again and I can do things without feeling like I need to carry a bucket around with me 24/7.  I’m still not at 100%, but after 2 days I’m already experiencing symptoms of cabin fever.  I want to jump right back into my routine, but I know that isn’t the most intelligent thing to do.  So here’s the plan.  I’m going to unpack/clean/disinfect my apartment, answer some emails, maybe go to the store, and be back with the dairy-free chai tea latte recipe that I talked about on Friday!  Baby steps to get back to normal.  I just wanted to check in and let you guys know what’s been going on/that I’m back from the dead.

Hope everyone’s had a great week so far!  {and not been sick}…
