I'm not usually sick. But something got a hold of me a few days ago.
I woke up on Monday with some bites on my legs, the back of my knees, and a few other places. They itched for a day and then I forgot about them. Then my neck got a bit stiff. I thought it was just the recurring neck pain I get from a car accident back in 1993.

This morning, I woke up feeling like I had pulled every muscle in my body. I took a nice, hot shower, which did nothing for the pain.
I made it downstairs to the couch and that's where I have been the whole day. Ibuprofen helps a little. I did some research online, and since I don't have a fever (if I do, it's slight) or shaking chills, I can wait until tomorrow to see if I need to see a doctor.
I'm assuming it was a spider, since the welts don't match any other kind of bite or sting.

I am the luckiest woman in the world, though. Geoff, since he works at home, was able to take care of the girls and me today. I felt guilty all day, knowing that he has deadlines to meet, but he said he didn't mind. In sickness and in health.

I love you Geoff....because.

Off to take some more ibuprofen and maybe a cocktail of muscle relaxers.

I hope today is better for you, Susan. You are lucky to have Geoff - my husband would be asking, "so, what's for dinner?" LOL!
