At this exact time last year, little A and I had the flu (https://momto2cuddlebugs.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/and-then-there-were-two/).
Unpleasant as it was, it led to several pounds of fortuitous (if, ultimately, short-lived) weight loss for me. This time, severe stomach and back pains (that have been lasting over a week now) seem poised to deliver the same favorable weight loss results. I mean, after a weekend of alternately resting and doubling over with pain, thulping antibiotics twice a day, and consuming a steady liquid diet, what else can one expect?
Fortuitous weight loss not withstanding, have really got to learn to start off the year better. 😦
