So this past week has been fun (read: one of the most painful weeks of my life…)
Not sure how or from where, but I managed to contract the Norovirus. From the Center for Disease Control:
[box] Noroviruses (genus Norovirus, family Caliciviridae) are a group of related, single-stranded RNA, non-enveloped viruses that cause acute gastroenteritis in humans. The most common symptoms of acute gastroenteritis are diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Norovirus is the official genus name for the group of viruses previously described as “Norwalk-like viruses” (NLV). Noroviruses spread from person to person, through contaminated food or water, and by touching contaminated surfaces. Norovirus is recognized as the leading cause of foodborne-disease outbreaks in the United States. Outbreaks can happen to people of all ages and in a variety of settings.

This lovely little virus had me in the bathroom for 5 days straight. No food, no water, no sanity.
It has not been a pleasant experience, and I don’t wish it upon anyone.
Thankfully, I do feel much better today, and am well enough to start working on my pile of email and writing more blog posts. It’ weeks like this where I am very thankful to have had a few posts already written and tucked away for safe keeping.
On a happier note, here is what went on at Money for College Project and Yakezie this week!
