Death warmed over

I've decided the gods must hate me. I need to stop saying things to tempt them.

Rook chapter today? Probably not. It's not almost 3pm and it's the first time I've been able to navigate my laptop since 3am this morning. I woke up at 1:45am and spent the next hour violently ill in the bathroom, then went back to sleep, only to have the process repeat itself a few hours later. That's the way it's been all day. This is the first time I've woken up from what feels like drugged sleep (even though I'm not) and been able to see straight or not be shaking.

My whole torso feels like it has been squeezed by a huge vise as every muscle I have in that region is aching from the dry heaving and such that's been going on since about 5am. You'd think that my body would not want to vomit if there's nothing left in my stomach, but no such luck. I alternate between chills and sweats as my fever comes and goes (I'm in a go period right now which is the only reason this is semi-lucid). And I have to fight to keep my eyes open.

At least Craig stayed home from work today to deal with the kids. Absolutely no way I could've done that today.

So my apologies if the chapter doesn't show up today. I'm hoping that maybe the worst of it has passed and I'll be able to sit on the couch to write with the laptop on my desk, but we'll see.
