Do I Get An "E" for Effort?

Last night was my first night back at work after surgery. I had 3 weeks off. I really do like my job, so I was ready to go back. I got my scrubs on, packed my little lunch bag, and off I went.
I got to work and proceeded to get ill. For the first time since surgery, I felt awful. I had Potty Problems. Digestive Dilemmas. I won't go into further detail (although Krissy and her Diva would probably like it!). I was in pain, and I was running to the bathroom every few minutes. I made it four hours (at least 2 of which were spent on the throne!). And then I gave up and came home.
I am really bummed! But tomorrow night, I will go back. Armed with medications to help out in case it strikes again.
(and now that I'm home, I feel FINE! What the heck?)
At least I tried!

Our mini-vacation was FANTASTIC. Here are a couple of pictures.

This is our cabin.....

Photobucket

The Squatter. He apparently lives behind the window frame and was quite curious about the weirdos on the front porch swing. He watched us for a good long time.

Photobucket

The lake is called Turtle Lake, and it was FULL of turtles, which I love. There were also lots of ducks. I'd love to post pics, but Photobucket is being a real jerk right now. Maybe we'll make up tomorrow and I'll add them on.
But we had a truly wonderful time and can't wait to go back!

Love the pics but so sorry your stomach was less than cooperative. Hopefully, you will feel better soon. I get a headache everyday at my office but as soon as I leave, it leaves. Shitty air quality or am I allercic to work?

Congrats on the weight loss! Sorry your first time back at work was a bummer! Loved the log cabin. I'm hoping to find one to celebrate our anniversary in September at. Take care.

That cabin looks cozy! I love spending a weekend in a cabin on a lake. My dream is to have one of my own some day.

You should definitely get an E for effort. Hopefully, it won't happen again.

Loved the cabin. I'm ready for a vacation, and that looks perfect.

So sorry to hear about your bad bowel experience at work! I know how much you love your job, too, so that must've been awful.

Great pics thought! That little squatter would've freaked me out!!

I am definitely allergic to work. As soon as I leave, I'm fine. Nothing to do with air quality, it's simply the fact that I'd rather be elsewhere. That doesn't sound like it's the case with you though ... hope you feel okay tomorrow!

That cabin looks so cozy. Just perfect! And that frog is so cute I just want to squeeze it. Sounds like you had a great time.
Sorry you felt so crappy. (pun) Hope you do much better the second night.
