Back from Under the Fog

Well, hello. Yes, it’s been a while. Just when I had been complaining on Ravelry in one of my blogging groups that I was in a blogging slump, and needed to take some decisive action to rectify the problem, last week, I fell sick with what I think was the worst cold I have ever had in my life. I’ve never felt so stupid for being sick for so long over something which, on the surface, didn’t seem like such a bad thing.

Except that it was. Truly awful. Most nights I did not sleep at all, and no manner of allergy medicines or traditional cold elixers would do anything to put a dent in my misery. I was full-on sick by last Thursday a week ago, and am only just now coming up for air.

I haven’t knit a stitch in 10 days, despite all of my dreaming of a good lousy cold and a few sick days with endless knitting, just for myself. Ok, so that was the stupidest fantasy ever. Lesson learned.

I’m looking forward to knitting again. Looking forward to getting some cooking done again. Looking forward to sleeping without feeling as if I am going to drown just as I start to nod off. Looking around me, though, I see that there is a lot of digging out that I have to do first. I definitely can’t claim that I live in a clutter-free zone, but the clutter level is something far beyond whatever passes for usual. I think maybe tonight I’ll head to bed early for a change, to fortify myself for tomorrow, when I have to get up and start moving and restore some semblance of order to the chaos that is currently my home. Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.

    I’m with you-I hear these bloggers talk about all the knitting they get done when they’re sick and all I can do is curl up with the remote, blow my nose, and moan a lot!
