New Year's Eve
My New Year's Eve was spent kinda like old Jake's here... only much more monochromatic.
I had acquired a minor case of Gastroenteritis from the hospital. Several wards have been quarantined. This seems to happen every winter and some staff always end up catching it. The last time I had it was about 5 years ago and it was much worse than this year's bout! That time it was fire hose force out both ends at the same time. Good thing I had a large bucket in the bathroom!
Thankfully, this time it only lasted about 12 hours but then it took me about 24 to replace the 5.5 lbs I had lost. Almost all of that was water, of course (unfortunately...). I am now back to normal in that department. (Hey, I have never claimed to be normal in any other respect!)
So the final day of 2010 was crap (literally) but...! The first day of 2011 saw the resolution to a problem that had been making life miserable for close to two weeks.
All things considered, life is pretty good at the moment. A new decade has begun.
