Fever

The last I wrote on here I spoke of wanting to spend time alone with Gareth this weekend. I wanted to spend a romantic weekend with him, the first we would have to really spend some time alone together since he got back from Africa.


Well, we got time alone, but it wasn't romantic. I became sick Friday night and was laid up in bed with a high fever all weekend. I must have gotten sick from going out in the rain the other day. It all started with the chills and then suddenly I grew very hot. I couldn't even wear clothes because it just felt like they were making me hotter. I spent a lot of time in cold tubs and getting a couple nice sponge baths from my man. Fortunately with him being a doctor, he has fixed me up enough to go to work today. I still fill like shit, still running a bit of a fever, and I really should stay in bed and rest for another day or two, but I am due to go out on the ship this week and I can't cancel. I'll just have to suck it up and deal with it the best I can.

I'm on my way out the door now, so I'll see you all in a few days. Hope your week starts off better than mine. Below is a picture of what Dublin looks like in the early morning when I head off to catch the ship. As you can see its quiet, peaceful, and makes you want to go crawl back into your bed until the sun comes up.
Its going to be a long week.

Chicken noodle soup is good for a cold.

gerry, he sent me an email last sunday that I just read today. Appears he has gone away for awhile. You'll probably hear from him on JUB, I can't see him leaving that place. So I'm sure you'll see him around there.
