Ok, I haven’t posted in a while, but I have good reason. I’m sick.
I have a viral infection that has gone and attacked all my joints. Which made my fingers look like sausages and my feet look like I’m 9 months pregnant in July (and I know what that looks like-it ain’t pretty). However, after a trip to the doctor, who prescribed copious amounts of Ibuprofin and sleep, the swelling has gone down and the feeling that I’m going to break into a million pieces if I stand up has gone away.
Now, I don’t want your pity for feeling so badly.
However, because my joints are so swollen, I can’t move much. Which means I haven’t knit in a week. You can pity me for that.
It’s beautiful and snowy here, and I’ve enjoyed reading the rest of my Sookie Stackhouse novels which came as a great surprise Thursday night. So when I got to stay home Friday, I read a book and slept all day. Not a bad way to spend a snowy Friday.
Now, if they’d just release the True Blood DVDs soon, I’ll be all set. Or else find a friend with HBO. But I’m thinking that I’ll be better on Monday and will have to go back to work. I’ve taken a lot of time off already this year, and can’t see taking an additional day unless I really truly need it. So, for now, I’ll just enjoy my weekend.
