Food Poisoning

I haven't posted in a while because I haven't had time, but now I have time and would rather be busy doing other things. Instead I'm stuck home feeling like I'm about to die. OK, so I exaggerate a little when I don't feel good, but you wouldn't understand unless you've had food poisoning before.

Last night we had our Sharing Life Group (the home group that we lead for young families at our church) at our house, and we usually do pizza or fast food since everyone is on their way from work. Well, I decided to be nice and cook dinner. Pork roast. Oh gosh, I can't even look at those words right now. When I woke up in the middle of the night sick, I was panicked because there were 7 other adults (one of which is pregnant) and 5 kids that ate the said pot roast. Michael sent an email out telling them that I have food poisoning, though, and no one else has replied yet that they might have it. And Michael and the boys are not sick, so that's a good sign.

I think it happened when I took that one little bite off of the top before the meat thermometer said it was ready. You see, I had it in the crock pot all day, but it was taking too long to cook. So I moved it to the oven to finish the job since I was running out of time. Well, the top of the roast looked all yummy and crisp (UGGGHHHH!!!), so I had a little bite, figuring that said little piece was fully cooked. What a mistake!

So now I'm laying on my bed, waiting for the Tylenol PM to kick in so that I can get some sleep. I only slept 2 1/2 hours last night and have been way too achey, nauseated, and uncomfortable to sleep so far today. I know this will pass, and last time I had food poisoning it only took 24 hours, but this day is going by SOOOO slowly. Not to mention I have to miss two my close friends' sons' birthday parties today and will probably not even get to visit much with my dad. : (

I do have the best husband ever, though. My weekend was supposed to be a full one, but he has totally taken the reigns so that I can rest in an empty house. My dad came in town this morning, so he picked him up from the airport with the boys, went to breakfast, and then to the toy store so Pa-pa could spoil Samuel for his birthday (I'm sure the Tiger will come home with something, too.) There's so little to worry about when the boys are in such good hands.

Now if I could only turn back time and not take that God-forsaken bite!
