When the Going Gets Tough…

with 8 comments

Folks, I wanted to stop by and let you all know that I’m starting to get a little better. I’m weak, somewhat dehydrated, and and extremely tired, but the symptoms of the food poisoning are finally gone.

As I said before, I think what happened is this: The Irish sausages I ordered were not fully cooked, as they were cold when they got to the table. Even eating the half-portion I ate was enough to put me down for the count for the past week.

So, now I am going to try to slowly ramp up again. I hope to do some writing (fiction included). I hope to do some editing. I also hope to play my sax and maybe my clarinet soon…there’s a concert scheduled for late January with the Racine Concert Band that I want to take part in, and I want to be ready to go before the first rehearsal for that starts in mid-January.

I don’t know how tough I am, mind, but I do know I’m committed, determined, and persistent.

As far as I’m concerned, that’s the only way to be.

Let me know how you’re doing in the comments.

    • Yes, for the most part I am. I’m thinking better, and am regaining a bit of energy. My body continues to think that I did three rounds with a hurricane, though…ah, well.

    • Thanks, eurobrat. I’m trying my best. I don’t know why it’s taking so long for me to feel better. Supposedly, after five-six days you should be much better, and that hasn’t happened here.

      • Yikes. If it goes on too long, you may want to see a doctor.
