Ick! Being Sick Sucks!  
Sorry I've been out for a few days, but this damned bug has yet to completely let me go. I just can't get rid of the nausea. And I think we all know that it's not that I'm pregnant! ;) Pepto, Emetrol, Nazsea, even good old Mylanta isn't getting rid of this. And I'm getting acid stomach on top of it. *rolls eyes* It just sucks.

Good news? We're around 2,000 words for the new chapter and got a good portion of it planned out last night. Not to mention that we're already working out large details of the Epilogue. And I'm having the time of my life with it. :D I hope it shows when we get there. 

Sending out good vibes to all of my F-List, since lately it seems that when it rains, it pours. And alphielj, I love you, honey. Sorry I missed the chance to write you myself and tell you that. *snuggles*

For nausea, try Ginger Ale, the kind with real ginger, ie Schwepps or Canda Dry. Let if go a little flat to get rid of the carbonation. Also try dry toast, and crackers. A cool cloth on the back of the neck also helps. Ginger tea might help as well.

The dry toast and crackers hasn't worked as yet. I think we're going to go to Target later and look for ginger ale and ginger tea. I've been drinking peppermint tea for days and it helps a bit, but not as much as I hoped. I'll just be thrilled when it's over with.

If you mix is part for part with gatorade it works nice too. I'm told. Restoring electrolites or something lol
Lois: Lois Grumpy Elegantkalalanekent on January 12th, 2008 10:41 pm (UTC)
Mix the gingerale with the gatorade or the ginger tea? I'm a little worried about it now because of the acid-stomach.
Mebrdwaybebe on January 12th, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
Gingerale and Gatorade. I usually go with orange and it helps soothe my tummy
Lois: Lois Grinkalalanekent on January 13th, 2008 03:41 am (UTC)
I actually managed to pick all of it up while we were at Target. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again...

Poor thing. I hope you feel better soon. I did make some STM icons with you in mind I hope they cheer you!
Lois: Lois Love Youkalalanekent on January 12th, 2008 10:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the weel-wishes, love! I certainly hope it's over soon, too. Ack. *makes face*

And you did? I'll have to go look (woefully behind thanks to being sick), but thanks so much in advance for thinking of me! It means alot. *hugs*
Mebrdwaybebe on January 12th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
-hugs back- You can fairly assume when I make STM icons they are with you in mind. I love the movie as well but you pop into my head as I make them thinking if you'll fancy them or not. :)

Feel better honey
Lois: Lois Clark Lovekalalanekent on January 12th, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
That's so sweet! And don't think you guys don't make me feel special when you do stuff like that! :D

And I'm trying. I get the feeling that I'm going to plunk down a chunk of change at Target and buy whatever I can. I have to go back to work tomorrow and two weeks of this is enough. Trust me.
Mebrdwaybebe on January 12th, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC)
Aww I'm glad. That's my aim :)

Give the gatorade/gingerale thing a try - works wonders for me. ;)

I hope you feel better soon - I'm sick too. It sucks. (Though I have a different sickness - cold. Wah.)
Lois: Lucy Kala Hugkalalanekent on January 13th, 2008 03:47 am (UTC)
Oh, Lea! *hugs* Sweetie, get some peppermint tea and go curl up somewhere. I hope you feel better soon!

Sorry you're under the weather. I wish I knew a home remedy to cure those tummy problems. Sounds like a food allergy, that will probably run its course. Hope you feel better soon. {hugs}

I'm excited and sad to hear the Epilogue is coming along. I know it'll be amazing.:D

In the meantime, take care of yourself, ok!!? {{more hugs}}
Lois: Lois Perry Familykalalanekent on January 13th, 2008 03:57 am (UTC)
Thanks, sweetheart. And really hop it does soon. I'm so tired of being sick. I really hope this is my only bad bout with anything this year...

Well, a girl can dream. *sigh*

And I'm the same way about the Finale/Epilogue: happy to finally be almost there, sad because the first book of their lives will be over. But we all know that it's not really the end. There's plenty more to come!

*hugs* I'm not sick, but tonight, JF is. And I think we all know that it's not that he's pregnant, neither! O.o lol He probably eat something he shouldn't have. The poor guy. I switched my role from fiancée to mommy. ¬¬
So, *hugs* to you, coz I know being sick really sucks!!
Lois: Lois Clark Lovekalalanekent on January 13th, 2008 03:59 am (UTC)
Poor boy! I hope he feels better so! And you are so awesome for wanting to play nursemaid to him! Hope he appreciates it! *hugs* I hope both he and I get over it soon!

I hope so, too! *hugs you tight*
As for JF, he's sleeping right now, on the couch (it's nearer the toilet...) but I think he should be ok. What he ate is now out of his system...

...but if he's not better tomorrow, I'll drive him to the hospital.

*huge hugs and a kiss right back at you* I wish so much that I could make things better for you, Lori, but know I love you and both of thoughts are with you and the kids. *snuggles again*

Oh Lois, I wish you were feeling better. :( Good luck with that, and with the writing (the EPILOGUE, OMGOMG....can't decide between being very excited or sad). *glomps you* ♥ ♥ ♥
Lois: Lois Kal-El Klutzkalalanekent on January 14th, 2008 03:37 am (UTC)
I'm starting to feel a little better, especially since it's been confirmed that I will be getting those days off in February. Thank Goodness! *victory arms*

And don't worry; the Epilogue won't be written for a few more weeks. Just starting to plan. Although we do have another important event coming up this chapter... :D

*glomps right back*

januaried: manip familyjanuaried on January 14th, 2008 04:15 am (UTC)
Awesome - and days off - even more awesome! :D

So when's the next chapter? (No pressure or anything...I'm just excited, as always :D)
Lois: Clark Jasonkalalanekent on January 14th, 2008 04:48 am (UTC)
Next chapter will be out on time this Saturday. We're actually moving along pretty fast this week. :D

*LOL* Thanks, Big Sister, and we do all seem to be coming down with something. I'll just be glad to have the colds and stuff pass me by for a little while after this! *sighs*

And sorry that you're having Relatives-By-Genetics-Only issues again. *snuggles* The good news is that all of us love you and only make you a little crazy.

*blows kiss*
