A Magnum of Whine
After Rhinebeck I decided to step up my posting. I was going to post at least twice a week, I had a schedule of topics in my Palm Pilot (sad, I know), I was cruising on my knitting and had plenty to talk about. Then I caught a cold. Then it turned into tonsillitis. Then my boss caught pneumonia and shared it with me. Then I had an endoscopy for an unrelated condition, and now between the endoscopy, the coughing and the sneezing, my throat muscles are bruised and beat up; it hurts to turn my head, swallow, touch my throat. I am not writing this so you'll all say "get well soon!"--I'm really not that sick, I'm just sick enough that I should be in bed, but not sick enough to tolerate lying in bed--I'm just writing this to explain my absence. You know when you were a kid and you had just recovered from something and felt fine, but your mom still made you stay in bed another day or two and you were like, "But mo-oo-mmm, I want to go outside and play!" That's where I am. And the fact that every single time I think I'm getting better, I suffer some setback, has made me realize that my mom was right, I should be in bed. So anyway, long story short, sorry I haven't posted, don't give up on me! I do have knitterly things to share, eventually. Check back next week. I have high hopes for next week.
