The thing that I'm amazed at is that I can still type and that I'm so bored. Usually I don't get bored until I'm feeling better, but all I see when I look around me is things I need to do, and I actually want to do them! (And I'm talking house cleaning here!) But, the way I feel there's no way much is getting done except a couple of posts and a long nap.
I remember when I was at school that I used to fantasize about being sick and getting to stay home. Being sick doesn't seem so bad when you're well. However, when you really are sick, you never have the energy to do the things you thought you'd be able to do.
I remember when a friend of mine was pregnant she had all these plans about what she was going to do on her maternity leave. I listened patiently and then told her that I wouldn't be too ambitious. Having a new baby in the house is exhausting and when you finally have 10 minutes to yourself you'll find yourself so tired you end up just sitting there, staring at the wall.
Well, a few weeks after her baby was born she called me and said, "Guess what I'm doing? Staring at the wall!"
There are some things in life we just can't control, new babies and illness are two of them! So, I'm going to sign off now and hope that my fever goes down far enough that my fingers will no longer throb and I can do some work on my Tufted Tweets quilt.
