I can't live by my conviction...

A wee bit of sickness interrupted my life for the past several days...Nothing too serious, just some virus that caused my digestive system to rebel with pain whenever I put something in it...And then my head decided not to be left out and ached, until it created some jealousy in my stomach, which decided to join in with just a bit of nausea.

It was fun, I tell you.

I soon discovered that avoidance of food = avoidance of pain. This is NOT my usual modus operandi. Usually, I live by the creed: Food is the most reliable fun you can have.

And I don't think I'm wrong about that...

So -- it was a departure from my regular routine, and a bunch of things I intended to do were put to the side while I tried to avoid pain, and sustain enough energy to do what had to be done. Bad timing what with it being Easter weekend and all.

I missed the Honcoop Family Easter Gathering. While I was feasting on juice & crackers, they were having this:



And I missed seeing all of this:

Easter Baskets!



Bubbles!

Uncle Dill reading to Miss Brielle.

Uncle Ran trying to steal Miss Madelyn's dessert.

Nope -- I didn't see any of it, but fortunately I sent my own personal photographer (Thanks, Cait!) to document all the fun I was missing. It was almost like I was there...

No, it wasn't.

I was told that I was missed, which did my heart good, though I know that had I not sent along the deviled eggs they would have been missed more than I...

But that's okay, because that's one of the ways I say to The Family that I love them...deviled eggs.

Because it's true: Food is the most reliable fun you can have.

...most of the time.
I look forward to living by my conviction once again.

Oh sweet friend, that sounds awful. I hope you are feeling better.

I like that creed a LOT... but would have to add "and coffee". :)

I'm glad you are feeling better. Not nice that you had to miss all that Easter fun and feasting. Good thing it wasn't at your house this year.
Take care!
