I’m back in Orlando…  And I’m sick!


I told the Husband I was just love sick after three days away from him, but he took one look at my snotty, dripping nose and hacking cough and said, "No, you’re really sick."


I have an awesome post of our tour of the POM Wonderful factory, but I’ll post that tomorrow when I have energy to write.  Until then, have a great night!


Here’s to hoping 8 hours of sleep in my own bed will magically cure me. 🙂

    feel better! I just got back from a great business trip but apparently I need more than 5 hours of sleep at night, so I am feeling your pain!

  • Mama Pea October 22, 2009, 12:11 am

    None of your posts are showing up in my Reader…I’ve totally missed your whole trip! I’ll catch up tomorrow, promise. In the meantime, feel better!

    Feel better! I used to get sick every single time I took a long haul flight – but now I think my body is just used to flight germs (gross!) because it doesn’t happen anymore!

    I hope that you get some sleep and feel better soon 🙂 Being sick always stinks 🙁

  • Amy October 22, 2009, 7:25 am

    Hi Caitlin! I hope that you feel better asap – getting sick after a lovely trip is the WORST!

    I have a nutrition question for you –
    My carbs per day have been out-of-control lately, as in so high you’d think I was training for a marathon, and I was wondering if you had any advice for lowering my carbs (not drastically, just to a healthy place) without upping my sodium (I seem to keep correlating lowering carbs w/ things like cottage cheese, eggbeaters, and other items that have a fair amount of sodium, and then to balance those out I think of sweet potatoes and bananas, which have potassium but a fair amount of carbs…so it turns into a bit of a cycle)..

    I guess that my basic question is perhaps just advice on upping my potassium without continuing to let my carbs per day skyrocket!

  • MegaNerd October 22, 2009, 7:52 am


    Feel better, caitlin! Rest up… and let me know if you need anything!

  • Sammie October 22, 2009, 8:21 am

    Sorry you are sick. Get lots of rest and feel better soon.

  • Sarah (Finding My Balance) October 22, 2009, 8:32 am

    Oh, Caitlin, I hope you feel better soon!! Rest up, push fluids, a plenty o’ vitamin C!

  • Amy October 22, 2009, 8:48 am

    Hope you are feeling better really soon! Getting sick after an amazing trip is no fun…

  • Carolyn October 22, 2009, 8:56 am

    Feel better soon!

  • Kristen October 22, 2009, 9:10 am

    I hope your 8 hours in bed were exactly what you needed and that you are feeling at least a bit better this morning.

  • Susan October 22, 2009, 9:12 am

    Sounds like your just a little run down from the trip – I agree, hopefully a good 8 hours is all it will take! 🙂

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) October 22, 2009, 9:18 am

    Oh no 🙁 I think there is something going around the blogosphere! I was home sick yesterday, and I read of quite a few others that were too.

    Feel better soon!! Rest up!!

  • Jessie (Vegan-minded) October 22, 2009, 9:45 am

    Everyone seems to be getting sick around here too, it must be going around. Hope you feel better soon 🙂

  • Brynne October 22, 2009, 10:25 am

    That’s amazing that the cameras in the POM factory can sort so much fruit so fast!

    Feel better soon!
