I just wanted you all to know that I'm still around but there is a SERIOUS lack of knitting going on around here. Any time I have had that would be put into knitting has been eaten up by being sick. I just can't seem to get rid of whatever this is. First it started out as a sore throat, then went to my sinus', and now is in my chest and I've lost my voice. Sleeping has been so interrupted due to the coughing and that's making me so worn out. The last day of classes is the 19th so after that we'll have more regular blog posting and hopefully some knitting to boot!

I'm going to go slink off and drink more tea and Emergen-C stuff. Love ya! Peace.

Eat, Sleep, and Put up Trees

Funny Myspace Comments

We ate, I slept for two hours, and now we're putting up the Christmas tree.
Hot chocolate is on it's way and all in all, a good day.
Hope yours is wonderful and full of good things!

tooting my horn over here too

I went to the doctors, have strep throat, have antibiotics now, and the last time I was there was March. Since then I have lost, get this,

TWENTY TWO pounds!

I knew I was losing weight, but damn! My scale sucks and I was just using it to show progress lol, but wow! I'm so happy with that. I'd like to do that amount again and I'd be pretty darn comfy. So I'm going to hole up in the house today and try to get some sleep. I feel so bad I even called into work which is a biggie for me. I've been there a little over two years and this is either the 2nd or 3rd time I've called in. Which isn't a good thing sometimes because I go to work while too sick. Not today though, not worth it. Have a nice afternoon peeps!

This is how I'm going to choose to look at it when the time comes (MANY years from now I hope!)

First sickness of this school year

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later that's for sure but why couldn't it have been oh, say a head cold like the kids have gotten? Or the 24 hour flu? Noooo I get to go right into my usual strep throat. And yes, I'm going to whine about it because I. DON'T. FEEL. GOOD. LOL, a little drama to start my day off, sorry.

I'm missing school today to see if I can get into the doctor's and for some of you, that gives you an indication of how sick I am doesn't it? Especially since the two classes I'm going to miss are the ones I'm failing. :(

Just wanted to pop in and say that I've managed to not get much more done on the baby sweater for my brothers newest one and it's due in like two weeks. But school has got to come first right now and I have 5 days over Thanksgiving which would be just enough to get that tiny thing done.

Gotta go take a shower now. Peace lovies.

LOL birthday boy does it again!

My most wonderful birthday boy (10 today) did it again, he got a good photo of me with my new haircut. I look a little pale but hey, s'all right with me LOL. Birthday has gone pretty well, sitting here with my ice cream and cake (ick at this point) and trying to do homework/reports with everyone here and Transformers on the TV. Grrrr, not productive. I need to go lock myself in my bedroom maybe. Anyway, I now have two kids in the double digits. *sigh* Hope you've had a great weekend and I'll have photos of the baby sweater I'm working on later this week. My brother and his wife are expecting baby #4 at the beginning of December, a second boy. Peace.

An idea I'm thinking about.....

THIS was showcased in the most recent Lion Brand Yarn email and I'm thinking this may be what I decide to do since socks take me so long. If I were quicker at socks then I'd make them too but I'm not so this may be what I can do. I've met quite a few people who served over there recently and though they are back safe and sound I feel like I can do something for them by helping others. Anyway, it's brewing in my mind. Just thought I'd share. And plus, the first one, which won't be that good probably, could be a good gift to Karl's dad for Christmas. Have a good one... oh, and
