When the plans fail (with the Wrapup)

coming soon

It was late Saturday. I had felt slightly strange earlier, thinking it was due to badly slept night. I started to have heartburns. They got worse and worse, really painful and I felt nauseous.

Around midnight it was clear: I had either a food poisoning or stomach flu. That night I didn't sleep much. I was violently sick, nothing stayed in.

Sunday I was only feeling nauseous and had high temperature. My body was fighting against what ever it was and that fight left me exhausted.

When I pledged to post once a day through January I didn't think about chance of something like this. I had wrote some posts ready in case I wouldn't be able to come up with something one day.

Unfortunately this situation was way too drastic for me to even think about my blog. Or sit up straight.

Sometimes all the plans fail. However great plan A's and plan B's you make, there are situations when all the plans fail. When that happens, there's really nothing to do, but to carry on. Admit the things didn't go as hoped and move on.

Last week on the tasselflower blog (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Myöhään lauantaina alkoi närästys. Närästys paheni ja paheni ja voin pahoin. Puolen yön maissa oli selvää, että olin saanut joko ruokamyrkytyksen tai muuten vain vatsataudin. En nukkunut pahemmin ja mikään juotu tai syöty ei pysynyt sisälläni. Sunnuntaina olin vain pahoinvoiva ja korkeassa kuumeessa. Kehoni taisteli sitä mikä se sitten olikaan vastaan ja ajoi minut uuvuksiin. Kun lupasin blogata kerran päivässä tammikuun ajan en ottanut huomioon tätä. Olin kyllä kirjoittanut varastoon siltä varalta, etten saisi aikaan tekstiä jonakin päivänä. Ikävä kyllä tämä tilanne oli sen verran paha, etten pystynyt edes miettimään blogiani. Tai istumaan suorassa. Joskus suunnitelmat menevät myttyyn. Varasuunnitelmatkaan eivät auta, kun homma karkaa käsistä. Silloin ei voi tehdä muuta kuin myöntää, että pieleen meni ja jatkaa eteenpäin.
