I had the best of intentions

You know I did. I was going to get all my house-cleaning done yesterday so I could spend all day today knitting.

Well, I did get all the cleaning done yesterday. I worked my butt off. I was so proud and couldn't wait for today . . . my whole day of knitting.

Then . . . . when I least expected it . . . . out of no where . . . . Violent Evil Stomach Flu. My head felt like it was splitting in two. I couldn't even keep down 7-Up. I just wished I were dead. Not exactly conducive to knitting.

I'm now starting to feel almost human again. Ate some crackers. Since they've stayed put, I went crazy and took some Advil and felt good enough to boot up the lap-top. I think I'm feeling well enough to work on my Socktoberfest socks (Sweetpea asked me what name I had for them, and since none has come to me, he wanted to call them Socklings! He's so cute.) Sad but true, I know my goal of finishing Sockling #1 by tomorrow is not within reach. I also wanted to do my 20 Things meme that Chris tagged me with, but that will have to wait until tomorrow too. And I've been tagged for another one, so I'm looking forward to having lots of stuff to share with you guys.

Darn those viruses, they come at the worst time. It could have at least picked a work day, not my long awaited Knitting Sunday!!!

Oh no, Karen, you poor thing!!! :( I feel so bad for you. Stomach flu is the absolute worst. THE WORST. Do you think it might be something you ate or are you pretty sure it's the stomach flu? I hope you get well soon...although, you *could* get better today and then call in sick tomorrow and use *tomorrow* as your displaced Knitting Sunday. No, I take that back- definite knitting bachi in that one. ;-) Take good care of yourself- lots of rest and water- and get well soon!!!

Yuck! It seems like a lot of the Mr. Yuck has been going around the blog circles lately. I hope you feel better soon...

Oh and the word of the day is a good one! Pupchi. Kind of like the zen moment you get when your dog snuggles up with you when you're feeling blah.

Yucky! Hope you're feeling back to yourself again very soon... There's something so unjust about being sick on the weekend!

Good Lord! The same thing happened to me today! :( UGH! I just HATE THE STOMACH thing! I'm glad you are feeling better, it gives me hope for tomorrow :)
