It’s been a while since I posted last, and I really want to post something about sewing because that is what is pulling me. However, the last few weeks have been full of everything BUT sewing.
My daughter took a trip to Seattle and came back on the Greyhound and was severely afflicted with motion-sickness. This is a problem of mine (so I NEVER ride on/in anything) so I felt completely beside myself to see my baby green, shaking, and vomiting at the bus terminal. It took about 5 days for that to pass. When I say severe… I really mean it.
Then my hubby knocked his elbow while passing me in the kitchen. He just banged it a little on the wall and that was it. About an hour later he came to me and told me to prepare myself because he had something to show me that was stressing him out. When he showed me his elbow ~ I totally freaked! His elbow was swollen as big as a softball… no kidding ~ it looked like his elbow grew a heel! Found out it’s bursitis, and luckily nothing painful ~ just super freaky looking! I would show a picture… but it’s pretty gross.
On top of it all, I’m fighting a nasty, congestive head cold. I have a low immune system too, so when I get sick ~ it sets my whole body amiss. I got the cold from hubby who was over it in two days… I’m going on a week, and the congestion is still in my head. Usually it travels down until it settles in my throat and lungs and that can take up to a month to clear. My fingers are crossed that I’m a little healthier than the last time I got sick, and that won’t happen… but it’s good to be prepared.
The frustrating thing is that it makes me SOOOO tired. It’s hard to move, to talk, to think when I’m so wiped out. So I’m barely able to work, and I have no energy for sewing, cooking, walking etc. Luckily I have a good animation project I’m working on in Flash and I’m making some progress on that. Who knew animation can take WAY more time than a quilt!
I will post again as soon as I have a photo to share… in the meantime: Happy Summer!
