And, as usual, when I didn’t recognize my need to rest, my body said “halt” and put me into forced shut down. A knotted stomach, fever and intense need for sleep felled me yesterday. It is too bad for my friend that I was landed in her house for what was supposed to be a mini-girlfriend retreat. But I benefited from her teenage Candy-Striper experience as she played both hostess and nurse maid. I am glad I arrived at her house on Friday night so we at least had one full evening to catch up, and I am glad I could drive myself home on Sunday as my illness seems to have been a one-day bug.
I am well rested, my stomach has only the tiniest twinge today. The journey will resume tomorrow.
