Ugh, today was a rough one. My little one came down with a stomach virus on Thursday, very short one, less than 24 hours. Well, today I was scheduled for a craft show in Rocky Mount. Set up time was 7:30 a.m. and the show time was 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. When my 5:30 a.m. alarm went off, I was not feeling pretty at all. At first I thought it was the early wake up, but I usually get up at 6 am, not a big difference.
As I got up and began moving, I realized this was not an early wake up, this was the kid’s virus! I went right to the supplement cabinet and took a dose of grape seed extract, made myself a piece of toast and a fruit smoothie, which I could not touch. After lying in the bathroom floor as long as time would allow, I got myself up, got dressed, and drove myself down the mountain. It was not a pretty ride, but the show must go on!
Made it to the show after stopping in my moms driveway for a toothbrush and toothpaste. I forgot to brush my teeth before I left the house, not pretty! Thankfully the show provided a high school soft ball team to unload the ride, and I had my mom on board to sit at the booth just in case I needed to bail.
I sat at the booth the entire day through waves of nausea, and then feeling not so bad, the ride began again. I finished my toast about 10 a.m. and my smoothie by 3 p.m. Definitely had a fever in the afternoon; had to wrap up in my scarf and coat, not pretty. I was so glad that my mom was there; if she had not been, I would have been whining for her.
I informed all the people who wanted hugs and to talk closely that I had a virus and they may want to stand a little further away. They all JUMPED back. Sales were still pretty good from the nice turn out and with good family support. (Rocky Mount is my homeland.) Hopefully, I kept my virus contained to me; guess we will find out. I am going to lie down and call it a day. Ugh to a not very pretty day.
