On being sick!

Do you remember being sick as a kid?  Your mom would tuck you in, make you chicken soup and take your temperature to make sure you weren't going to die? 

Well, I'm sure that happened in my childhood but where's Mom when you need her the most?  I don't have the flu.  But this cold has hit me hard in two areas.  Lots of ICK in my chest, no fever, and a general malaise. I went home from work yesterday and had a nap for 1/2 hour. Then I had a bit to eat after not eating lunch. Who can be hungry for real food when you're sick?  I did some computer work for an hour - I'm so far behind it's not funny. And then I fell asleep on the couch.

I woke up at midnight and went to bed where I promptly fell asleep.  I'm getting lots of sleep, I'm not stressed (at least not like I was before) and well - I should be feeling better.   Actually, I am feeling better today than I was yesterday, but I know by the end of the day that I'm going to be wiped and I can't really afford another evening of sleep followed by a night of sleep! 

At least I am feeling better even if only a wee bit. I haven't been sick for a long, long time so it was due that I would get caught at some point.  There is never a good time to get sick and thankfully it's only a cold.  Well that's what I think and I'm sticking to that story.

I have loads of stuff to tell you and loads of pictures to share with you - it's just not happening at this point in time. 

And don't say I should be home in bed!   I don't think I need 24-hour sleep.  Just a couple more days and I'll be bouncing off the walls like Murphy.

So bear with me as I get over this illness and then we can settle down to have some real fun.

Be sure to stick around for Friday as something very exciting is going to be happening on the blog.   Even if I have to die making it happen, something super exciting will be posted. And there is some VERY exciting news to share next week. I'm not sure I'm able to share it with you, but I'm going to try.  It's SUPER EXCITING.

And let's not forget all those pictures of what I did at the retreat and what I've buying to enhance my stash.  I can't wait to get back to the studio!  There - I feel better already. Having said that!  I haven't felt like sewing all week and I've so much to do.

On that note - have a super day!!!



  1. Your body is telling you to STOP before something happens. Sitting and relaxing is totally acceptable. Think of it as recharging.
