I Hate Being Sick!

Knitting in bed.

Halp! I needs a tissue! :(

The last half of this month, I have had a heck of a lot of shifts! I was pretty darn happy with that. I was enjoying my one day off and preparing to go back to work for another 4 days before having my 5 days off! Score! And then, BAM! I get nailed with a pretty silly illness. I think it's a cold... A bit of a harsh cold.

I called in sick, fully expecting to go back the next day. Next day comes, and I'm suddenly taken over by an overwhelming feeling of drowsiness and weakness. I called in sick again, fully expecting to be in the next day. I wake up today -- day three of what would have been my four shifts, and I can't talk! Auhg! My throat hurts something awful right now and I have a really gnarly cough. I tried calling in sick, but I know I'm letting my boss down a lot this week. There aren't a lot of back-up LPNs for this particular shift, but... Hell. I'm sick. It's not like I can really help that... 

I left a voicemail... I wonder if she'll be able to understand it through the random voice crackles, and high pitched whines made by my frail larynx. :P

In the meantime, I've been working on my first knitted sweater! I'm guessing it will take me another month to finish since I usually only work on it during days I don't work.

Colds For the Lose

I had the worst sleep I've had in a long time last night. My nose woke me up quite a bit - sneezing, sniffling, one heck of a sore throat, and the inability to breathe through my nostrils. I'd like to send out a thank you to my baby sister for this cold. I'm honored. Actually, it's my daughter's inexperienced hand washing while she and I were at my mom's house on Monday.

fish hat - almost doneI hope this cold does not last very long... Not only is it incredibly uncomfortable and sore (ow! I can't eat!) I have practicum on Sunday again. I actually ended up missing practicum yesterday because my daughter was so sick and half-way through the day is when I got slammed with the illness. My daughter seems to be doing better than me, thank goodness! Poor girl.


On the brighter side, I was able to work on that fish hat a bunch yesterday. I'm at least 80% done now. I'm just doing the tail, then have to work on the details such as the fins and the eyes. I'm quite pleased with how it's coming along. I can't wait to be done it so that I can move on to making hats for my two nephews... Their hats will be a bit of a challenge, since I'll be creating a pattern just for them. I have to incorporate mighty machines into their hats, otherwise they simply won't wear them (of course!)  They truly are their father's sons hehe
