"Imodium, blessed Imodium."

Late Sunday afternoon I started to feel really tired and run down. It was so bad that I ended up taking a nap on the living room floor for a while. When I woke up I started mowing the lawn so that it would be done before the big storm we were anticipating hit.

Halfway through the job I started to feel awful. Really awful. By the end of the lawn mowing extravaganza I was ready to drop. When I was done I sat down in our mudroom off of the garage and didn't move for about 20 minutes. After trying to eat and drink something I discovered, oh joy, I had come down with a case of Montezuma's revenge. Ugh.

I was up most of the night with stomach cramps and a need to visit our facilities more than I normally would. By morning I was dosing up on Imodium and gritting my teeth to get through the day.

It was a 24 hour bug which I'm glad of but it didn't make the day any easier. When I got home I was weak as a kitten and glad just to lay down. I woke up about 3 hours later to discover Fabulous Babe in bed next to me watching "24" that she had "taped" on the Tivo. By the time she got to the second I was a bit more coherent. (How CTU and Jack are going to stop an inflight missile is beyond me but we'll see. I'm betting they use the Missile Defense system.) After it was lights out I got up to make a couple of Eggos so I wouldn't try to sleep on an empty stomach.

If you get this bug watch out. It's quick but nasty.
