Absence Excused

To Whom It May Concern,

(i.e. those of you who sent e-mail and other such messages inquiring where in the heck Kathy-rine disappeared to for the last several days)

Kathy-rine has been excused from her blog posting responsibilities due to a swift and unexpected stomach 'bug' that caught her unawares. She was unable to think clearly, write coherent sentences or leave her bathroom for extended periods of time. Occasionally, she could be heard mumbling to herself, "Something is not right. There is definitely something wrong," while rocking back and forth on the toilet and clutching the garbage pail.

Currently, Kathy-rine is back to work, feeling fine and a couple pounds lighter. She will be returning shortly as soon as she catches a nap, launders some clothing, packs her bags and puppy in to the car and heads down to Tucson for the holiday weekend. Until then, she bids all of you well and will catch up on your posts as time permits.

Sincerely,

Kathy-rine (who does not usually but is currently referring to herself in the third person)

P.S. She says, have a GREAT Thanksgiving everyone! Remember to wait for the thermometer to pop before tearing the bird apart like the savages that you are... we are. Enjoy your 'Buck-a-Gobbs'!

Ah, nothing like the stomach-flu diet! Sorry you're sick, hope you're better in time for the turkey.

See, you should have timed the flu AFTER Thanksgiving to "release" all the food you're bound to eat. Maybe next year...

I'm so sorry to hear that you were so sick. I'm glad that it was before Turkey-Day and not during.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sounds like your getting better just in time to stuff yourself on thanksgiving!
Just think, now you can make up for all the calories you've missed in the past few days all in one day, or shall I say one meal.

The whole wait for the thermometer to pop thing is hopefully as easy as it sounds, I'm baking my first turkey ever this year, and I'd hate to get someone (my husband) sick from eating an undercooked turkey.

Ugh! Sounds like fun times indeed. Glad you are feeling better in time for Thanksgiving. Have a great one, and please give my best holiday wishes to the family!
