After Writing This, I’m Going To Sleeping In My Bathroom.

The answer to Friday’s I Ask post is going to be delayed.

I’m too busy dying of a stomach virus.

Why yes, I did sleep in my bathroom last night. And I still only made it to the toilet fifty percent of the time.

My ends are not as fluid right now, but I’m too weak to sit up for more than five minutes.

So if you could read some of my guest posts from last week and think solid thoughts for me, I’d love you forever:

Ok, back to dying.

She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Dude I can’t believe you had to sleep in the bathroom! While hilarious that totally sucks. Hope you feel better! After all the talk of being thankful you didn’t shit your pants…I think I jinxed you

    1. I only did it because I said that I would post the winner/answer to Friday’s post on Sunday and I felt like I needed to explain where I was. I think that’s called a false sense of importance? Haha

      The answer is going up tomorrow though… I’m sure you and everyone else was wondering. {sigh}

  2. My poor sweet Alex! I am so sorry! Praying you feel better right now and that the whole house is well and healthy. Love to you friend.

  3. Amazing. I’ve never seen a mattress in a bathroom before. Maybe that means my world is small and I need to get out more. Impressive that you wrote anything at all given your vomit to toilet ratio; Very inspired by your perseverance. Take care of yourself!!

  4. That sucks! Death always seems like the better alternative when you’re hit with the stomach flu…I hope you feel better soon.

    At least you had the cat to keep you company!

  5. I had “The Bug” this week too. “The Bug” being the understatement of the year. My one-year-old had a birthday party last weekend where she contracted “The Bug” and proceeded to give it to my husband, my mother, my father, my sister, my brother-in-law, two of my friends and MYSELF. It was nasty. It was FLUID. It was sleep-in-the-bathroom-worthy. But I think it is over. I hope yours ends with less bloodshed.
