Happy New Year!

Big love and happy wishes for the New Year!

I spent my NYE in bed for most of the day, recouping. Slept for 15 hours, and worked on drinking lots of water and trying to eat. Recouping from what? My sudden sickness yesterday that resulted in being so ill that I left work early, drove home in a haze, became more ill, collapsed and passed out in the bathroom, and was promptly taken to the ER by an ambulance. Diagnosis? A combo of stress, a tummy bug that's going around and/or food sickness from questionable leftovers that led to sudden dehydration and a form of shock that turned my fingers blue and caused me to lose all feeling in my body. Lots of blood work and tests were done to be sure I had not had a stroke, and I was given 2 bags of fluids to get me to a point where I could go home. Scary stuff to say the least, but I'm glad that rest and lots of fluids have resolved things!

On the down side, sleeping for 15 hours has made me wide awake at 7am. I last slept for about an hour around 1am, and before that I had woken up at 4pm. I thought about trying to get more sleep, but Ikea is having a sale today and I really want to try to snag a telly bench that's marked down from 250$ to 99$ today only. Recouping or not, a good deal is a good deal!

No resolution, just wishes of more peace, more love, and more balance in the new year. This year is going to bring a lot of changes for me and I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

Here's to making the most of 2010!


I do think this will be a good place for me to start blogging again. Too bad I have to head off to work right now!

Please allow me to introduce myself...

I'm Ashley. 23 years old, mom to a 2 year old whirlwind, wife for 3 years to a geeky, caring, VW bus driving guy. We are the "hippies" of our block (says a neighbor friend). I work weekends, and am with our son the rest of the week. I'll add more later when I have time.
