Sick Day

So, I've had this wretched cold/flu/whatever thing for a week now, and I'm pretty well ready to be over it. I'm so not good at being sick. I hate being sick more than anything! Ugh. Everyone teased me after my knee surgery that I couldn't stay down---my husband couldn't believe that I was still busier than he was!

This cold is kicking my butt, though. I started getting sick last Saturday, which was the worst possible time: I had three tests, one 20-page paper, a presentation, a bunch of stuff for work and a full load of Pilates classes! Well, I've made it through everything, but my Fourth of July sucked royally: I just slept all day, then tried to study for my math test while everyone else went to watch fireworks. Yesterday was just the bare minimum: taught Pilates at 5:00 am, went to work for a couple of hours, took my math final, worked a little more, dropped of a FedEx, then helped my husband install my new (woohoo!) Cadillac Tower at the studio.

I slept for a while, but it was really too hot to sleep. That's the other problem with being sick in the summer: the normal remedies like hot baths, hot tea, and down comforters aren't exactly summer-friendly. Bleh. So we got up and went to Driggs to see the Clumbsy Lovers. They were doing an outdoor concert last night and it was super-fun. People up there breed like rabbits, though! I can't believe how many kids, babies and pregnant women we saw. Holy cow!

So today I taught a private lesson and then I'm taking the rest of the day off. My husband went kayaking with his friend, and I'm going to catch up on some knitting (almost have my Scoop du Jour finished!), some shopping, and finally getting my closet organized. I'm also going to try to not talk too much...afraid I might lose my voice!

Oh, and I'm getting stuff ready for the August Fire Sale, too. I'm thinking of making some batches of soap and lip balm for it---I used to have a little skin care company, and in the last six months I've had seven or eight people request stuff again. Wow!

I hope you feel better soon, summer is definitely the worst time to be sick. You make your own soap?! If you ever felt like writing about it I'd love to know how you do it...You sound like you're a really high energy person that's for sure. What's your secret?

My husband made me go to the doctor this morning, so I'm armed with antibiotics and narcotics now. This durn cold better go away quick!

Soap making is so much fun...I hadn't thought about posting on it, but I definitely will! As for the energy, I've been like this since I was born. My mom said I could never sit still---had to be knitting, reading a book, and watching tv all at once! That's probably why I'm not very good at being sick, huh?

Hopefully, you are starting to feel better. I know you've really been sorting through the closet, so look on the bright side -- you gained a little extra time to focus on clearing. What yarn are you using for the Scoop du Jour? I love that pattern.

Well, I used some great Paton's Katrina that I found on sale for something ridiculous like a dollar a skein. I love it---stretchy, slighty shiny....but I just discovered a little problem. More later....
