And finally, a Post!

I have started this post at least 5 times and have yet to finish it and post it. Hopefully this will be the time!
Yesterday was crazy. I woke up, took the kids to school, and came back to take a shower and get ready for the day. I wasn't feeling all that well so I lay down on the couch...for a minute....well, I thought it was a minute. I woke up at 12:30. I was shocked! And dizzy! So I'm now on Sudafed for my ear. I have ruptured one of my eardrums twice as an adult from ear infections so it is now weak. Whenever I get any fluid on my ear, it will often wreak havoc with my equilibrium....which is what happened yesterday. Once I take some decongestant and get some of it off the ear, I am able to function much better. I still don't understand the need for so much sleep but I'm not complaining!

I have been doing a lot of crocheting lately. Scarves and headbands for my nieces, a scarf for my dad, one for my husband, another for me, and I'm currently working on an afghan for my daughter. Hubby's scarf was a request that would match his nice new coat he wears to work.

My daughter's afghan is a striped blanket with black being the main color. The alternating stripes are whatever I have on hand or pick up from the store. I did also pick up some gray to make a throw for my couch as well.

And I've been working on several other things, but it has truly aggravated my shoulder pain to a really bad degree. Hubby has insisted that I go to the doctor about it. Of course, I also need to go for a yearly exam, and an eye exam so I it looks like I need to just make a week of appointments. As soon as I get some sewing done, I will post that as well.

Ear pain is no fun. I do hope you are feeling better very soon. And yes you should get that shoulder looked at! You need to take care of yourself so that you can take care of your family.

my goodness woman... and I can't even finish the one puny scarf I started in November! Rest as much as you need to feel better!

My mother made me a beautiful afghan almost ten years ago (knitted not crocheted, but still) and I absolutely treasure it. It is on our bed year round. She will love it!
