Sunday evening, Tom wasn't feeling so well. He had made over a dozen feet of homemade sausage with some of his venison and pork, and he ate the leftover piece of pork for dinner. A few hours later, he was incredibly sick, with what he described as "power vomiting". It was uncontrollable for over 8 hours that night, and he was home from work for the next two days, recovering.
We assumed it was food poisoning from the pork, which he described as being "gamey". (Pork isn't supposed to be gamey.)
then last night, I started feeling kinda crappy. I went to bed around
9, and by 10, I was also throwing up uncontrollably with stomach cramps
so bad that it felt like I was in labor again.
today, I just felt weak and crappy and achy and feverish - like I had
the flu really bad. Tom stayed home from work for the third day in a row
because there was no way I was going to be able to get up and get
Colden ready and to school.
actually got the idea for this one a couple of weeks ago while I was
watching Erik the Viking. (An old Terry Gilliam flick with Tim Robbins
and John Cleese!) One of the female characters was wearing an absolutely
divine metalwork necklace, and I wanted to try to recreate the lines,
shapes, and textures using bead embroidery.
So, hopefully after a good night of sleep, I'll feel better tomorrow, and then I can get back to work.
