A Wild Thursday Night & Canceled Plans

Hello. It’s me. I’m back from the crypt.

I was so swamped with work last week that I completely forgot to write and/or schedule a post on Thursday. K was home sick Monday and Tuesday so when I failed to post anything on Thursday his mom reached out and asked if I was feeling ok. Turns out she’s psychic because later that night I started throwing up and spiked a fever. UGH.

Over the weekend we were supposed to go to Bristol, TN with my parents, my uncle and my cousin. Since I was still sick Friday night we had to cancel on them. If you’ve been around for a while you might know that the Bristol NASCAR race is my favorite weekend. Devastated and pitiful are good descriptions for my mood this weekend.

So today’s post was supposed to be “Thoughts I Have While Attending a NASCAR Race” (similar to my ob/gyn post) but obviously I have nothing to report. I ended up not leaving my house from 4 pm Thursday until 1 pm on Sunday. I don’t know the last time I hibernated like that. I also don’t know the last time I threw up that much. (K lost 12 lbs. when he was sick. I LOST NOTHING.) But I am feeling much better and just in time for our work-related trip later this week. The dogs were also pretty pleased to be crate-less for +3 days.

Anyway… today’s post is just hi-hello-it’s me kind of thing. I’m really excited about this Thursday’s post, though. So despite my dull update today you should come back for that one, lol.

Until then, I’ll do my best to catch up on the blog posts I missed while I was sick. And stay caught up with everything going on while I’m on the road. (Understandably, my blog reading slacks when I get super busy with work. #sorrynotsorry)

Ok. Enough whining about being sick and canceled weekend plans. Tell me what you did last weekend!

    I’m so glad that you’re feeling better! I haven’t been that sick in a while but I get pretty pitiful just when I’m barely sick I would have been a mess if I was throwing up a ton! And I’m right there with you with trying to get caught back up on blog reading! I’ve been swamped at work so I’m trying to get caught up!

      It’s been SO long since I’ve been that sick. I hated every single minute of it. Ugh!!

    OF COURSE he lost weight! I swear it’s so much easier for men. And not that you need to lose weight… but you know what i mean! Glad you are feeling better. I’m convinced few things are worse than a stomach virus.


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:28 pm

      Gah. I just don’t get how men got that weight weight loss gene. UN. FAIR.
      Man, being stuck on the couch or with my head in a trash can was the absolute worst.

    Oh nooo! I’m so sorry you had to miss out on something you were so excited about. So glad you’re feeling better though. Phew!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:29 pm

      I’m sad we missed it but I’m glad we made that call. The races would’ve seriously delayed my recovery and I’d have been a mess for our business trip.
      Thank you!

    Glad you are feeling better! I had to laugh about the dogs, because mine get SO confused when I’m home during the day! They start begging for their dinner in the early afternoon. And why oh why do guys lose weight so easily?! If you are going to get awfully sick, the least thing that could happen is losing a few pounds haha.


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:30 pm

      Kyle was home Monday and Tuesday with the same virus, then I got it Thursday and spent Friday at home. The dogs were definitely living their best lives. Hahahaha.
      I was pumped to jump on the scale on Monday. LITERALLY NO CHANGE. Gah.


  5. Rebecca Jo April 17, 2018 / 11:16 am

    OHHHHH MERCYYYYYY …. I feel like I just caught the flu bug reading this. YIKES.
    After having it last year, I know how miserable it is & fearful of every having it again.
    Glad its all over – lysol that house down & get some fresh air!!!!
    Sorry you missed your event. Sickness always hits at the worst time!!!! 😦 You’ll have to do something fun to make up for it.


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:32 pm

      As soon as I was feeling a little better I opened all the windows and the sliding door, scrubbed the bathrooms, and changed the sheets. I wanted that virus O.U.T.!!


  6. Nadine April 17, 2018 / 11:24 am

    Oh no, that is the worst!!! Sorry you missed your race.I am glad you are feeling better!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:32 pm

      Thank you! I’m sad we missed it but staying home was 100% the right call.


  7. Kelly @ Noodle to the Rescue April 17, 2018 / 12:29 pm

    Oh nooo! So sorry to hear that you were sick and missed your weekend trip. That is such a disappointment.
    I am also trying to get caught up in blog-land after being so busy with work the past couple months. It doesn’t take long to get so far behind!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:35 pm

      Thanks, friend. I’m so glad I’m over that cold now!
      Oh man… It is SO easy to fall behind in blogland!! Lol


  8. everything with love April 17, 2018 / 1:26 pm

    I was so sad for you that you had to miss the race. Seriously, why can’t sickness just come when we have no other plans?!? Glad you’re feeling better now.


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:38 pm

      Man… I hated that. And I know my dad was so disappointed that we couldn’t go. He was understanding but he held out hope until the very last minute. I’m hoping to squeeze in another race this year and treat him and my mom to the trip 😉
      Thank you!


  9. Julie Hood April 17, 2018 / 9:33 pm

    Omg I am SO SO sorry you were so sick!!!!!!! That’s the worst, especially when it means missed plans. Ugh. I feel for ya. Hope the rest of the month just gets better and better!!!!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:39 pm

      Thank you! I know we made the right call staying home that weekend but it totally sucked. Sigh. Life has a way of throwing us curveballs!


  10. Lauren Becker April 17, 2018 / 11:01 pm

    Oh, being sick is awful – and throwing up is just the WORST! I’m so sorry you had to cancel your plans. I hope you are feeling a lot better now though.



    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:40 pm

      I always do everything I can to avoid throwing up when I’m sick. Totally unavoidable this time. UGH. I am much much better now- thank you!


  11. Emelia Lawrence April 18, 2018 / 9:58 am

    I’m so sorry to hear you had the virus- no fun at all! Rest rest rest is all you can do I swear. Hope your work trip goes well and you stay feeling better 🙂


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:41 pm

      I stayed home from Thurs. night to Sun. afternoon. I don’t know the last time I stayed in one place for so long!! It definitely helped, though. I was 100% good to go for the work trip.
      Thank you!!

    Being sick is the worst! I had to go back to Minnesota last week for a funeral and my Dad got a cold. Goes who took it back with her to California? Me? I’m hoping it’s just a short, harmless little cold that goes away in another day or two. And why is it that a man can lose 12 lbs while sick and I’d be more likely to GAIN weight? I’m glad you feel better and hope your work trip goes well this week!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:43 pm

      Oh man… I’m so sorry! About the funeral AND the sickness. That totally stinks.
      I hope you’re feeling better!! I’ll send my new health vibes your way. I’m all good now!
      It was a great trip- thanks!!


  13. With Curls & Cocktails April 18, 2018 / 11:01 am

    Yikes I hate getting that sick! At least you got some rest! My boyfriend will lose weight doing basically nothing while I can have a horrible stomach flu and still not lose a pound!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:45 pm

      I’m feeling much better 🙂
      One time K and I started getting up early and working out at a gym. (We only kept it up for a month.) After the first week we decided to weigh ourselves. Kyle had lost 14 pounds. I GAINED SIX.
      Un-freaking-fair. Lol


  14. Stephanie Mellor Doyle April 18, 2018 / 2:34 pm

    Nooo. Missing a much anticipated weekend because of illness or weather brings out the pitiful toddler in me like pretty much nothing else. I’m glad you’re on t he mend.


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:46 pm

      It was so disappointing. I know my parents were SUPER bummed that we had to cancel, too. So unfair. Sigh.
      I’m much much better now, though. Glad for that at least! Thank you!


  15. Akaleistar April 18, 2018 / 10:12 pm

    What a bummer that you had to miss the race, but glad you are feeling better!


    • Audrey April 23, 2018 / 9:47 pm

      Thank you! I’m SO glad to be feeling better!

    I’m glad that you are feeling better now! Seriously so not fun to be under the weather, and to miss out on fun travel plans, etc. I feel ya. That was my Jan/Feb. Oy. I have been hanging on by the skin of my teeth posting things and scheduling them. Yikes. Maybe I can regroup today. Or catch up just a little. I think May will be the death of me with how busy we are going to be. XO – Alexandra

      Thank you! I just HATE being forced to be idle. I couldn’t really read or do anything. Forced rest doesn’t make me happy. I’m very very glad and thankful to be 100% better. I was down for 2 days, taking it slow for 2 more, then feeling a little icky for 2 additional days. It hung on longer than I expected but I know it was short in comparison to some illnesses.
      I hope you get all caught up! I’m falling behind, too! Work is a little nutso so blogging keeps taking a backseat. Urgh!
