For the second time (or is it third now?) I ended up having fate intervene and prevent me from finishing the Ultimate Blog Challenge in 31 days.
By morning, I was running a low grade fever and unable to move.
I still have no idea that nasty bug that made its way through my system. All I know is that it flattened me for a few days and taught me what it's like to be unable to walk more than a very painful, hobbling few feet to the bathroom.
It took me a few days of bed rest, sleeping, and generally being miserable to start feeling human again.
While I still have lingering soreness in my low back and hip, and no fever, I am much improved. I can for the most part move around and feel more like I overexerted a little than anything else.
However, unable to complete the Ultimate Blog Challenge. Oh, well!
However, it has shown me the blessedness of having family close by to help me get around, bring me things when I can't move, and generally take care of me when I'm ailing.
As always the blog challenge has introduced me to new blogs and new folks to follow and learn from.
In the end, I think that's what matters most anyway.
