That Girl Crochet

Ramblings from an avid crocheter, knitter, spinner, and major fiber junkie.

I am finally getting back to slightly normal events. Coffee at Starbucks with my hubby, took down the Christmas stuff, sitting up longer than 20 minutes, finally have my crochet hook back in my hand.

I have quite a few patterns that I have not shown, I just might do that this next week. I am not working anymore and might actually have time for my hobbies now.

until next time.........

Why did I get a Flu shot? I have no idea why. I got the worst flu that I have ever had. A day by day account of my adventure for your pleasure.

Christmas eve eve (as my kids call it) - scratchy throat, irritating cough, horrible nights sleep

Christmas Eve- no energy, annoying cough, popping cough drops like candy, energy is being sucked out of me quickly, sneezing alot and mild upset stomach.

Christmas- God gave me enough energy to open presents with my girls, I then laid on the couch and fell asleep, I had no strength to go to my parents. My body aches, my head feels like someone is carving it with a knife, acid is running down my nose cavities. I cant remember what feeling good feels like.

Day after Christmas- I want to sink into the ground, I cant function. It is all I can do to get up and go to the bathroom. I cant get out of bed. My head hurts so bad I think it might pop off my body. The body aches are overwhelming. my cough has left and that can only mean one thing, a secondary infection. I continually pray for God to help me make it and to spare my family. A very strong prescription pain medicine doesnt even dent the headache. Continued sweats and fever. I cant take it.

2nd day after Christmas- A deseperate call to the doctor at 7:58 am. thank God, they answer. I have an apponitment at 11:15. The cough is back and so is the stuff that is in my lungs. Not good. My breathing machine and I will be visiting with one another. The headache is so severe. I get a shot and an antibiotic. He says that my lungs are full and am wheezing. Husband and daughter now have the flu. I can ony hope that getting them medicine early will help them out. I lay on the couch and pop 2 different pain pills. Finally some relief. Body still hurts. I was actually able to sit up for a couple of hours.

3rd day after Christmas- Still feel like crap. Body aches still going strong, coughing up nasty stuff. Sitting up longer. Wondering how long this flu will last.

until next time......

gotta talk

2005 Radio Music Awards - My thoughts.....

Ricky Martin you can grind your hips and dance with the sexy girl all you want but we all know what you are about....

Keith Urban you are my favorite Aussie so why must you go and date Nicole Kidman?? I dont have anything againt Nicole other then the fact that she was married to Tom Cruise and we all know how he turned out.... poor Katie and that unborn child.

Pussy cat Dolls, I didn't fall for you when you were the Spice Girls and I am not hip to your tune now. Give it us sisters.

Host Jamie (funny girl from My name is Earl) if you smoke STOP, your young and your voice is not.....

Rascal Flatts, I love you...

Goo Goo dolls lead singer, I love your hair... very David Cassidy back in the 70's

until next time......
