1 + 1 = 2

The aftermath...

So I've been sick (royally, imperially sick) during my 2 weeks of vacation. Yes, I had dengue fever. Yes, I had it pretty bad, with a saddleback fever (going as high as 40C) and a saddleback rash that left me walking around my neighboorhood at 4AM, unable to sleep because of the *unbearable* scratching.

So my plans of spending a week of rest, love and romance at CQFD's family's cottage, on the shores of the beautiful and calm Lac Huard (Loon lake)..... were completely destroyed, and CQFD's only vacation week was used to nurse me back to health instead of snuggling in a canoe.

LacHuard

On the flip side, I've been declared unfit for travel for another 4 weeks. For a TRAVELLING BEAVER, it's almost a death sentence. But I will get to know again my friends and loved ones back home, and spending a month 1/2 with CQFD will bring me back on my feet.

In a way, this was unhoped for, but a god-send. I think I can really use the rest.... the stability... the love.....

(lots to come, soon, movie reviews and pics pics pics!)

So happy to hear from you. Your silence had me worried. I am sorry to hear that your vacation time was not a vacation but a recovery.

The extra time off, however, will be good both for your body and spirit. Use it wisely. I can't wait to get the updates and see the pics.

Nice to have you back...continue to take care.

Oh no. I hope you feel better!

Reminds me of the time I got Scarlett Fever in France.

Awww, honey. I'm so sorry. I've been sick, too, recently (nervous stomach). I hate how it can incapacitate you! *hugs* Feel better!
