A nurse who knits…

Being sick sucks…

I haven’t posted in almost a month. Just a quick post that I’m only mostly dead. Not completely dead. (I just watched Princess Bride)
Ugh… I have the worst cold. I think I caught it from my parents who were sick last week. I visit with them a few times a week but hadn’t been since they were sick. 3 days ago, I started getting the sniffles and a sore throat. By yesterday, I was using up handfuls of tissue. Yuck.

To top it off, Matt convinced me to eat El Pollo Loco yesterday. I know… a vegetarian who eats at El Pollo Loco. But they had a bean and rice burrito. And Matt was bugging me that I couldn’t eat or wouldn’t eat at fast food restaurant. Well, we ate the El Pollo Loco meal at 6:30 pm. I hurled it up at midnight. Before that, my stomach cramped so bad, I thought I might be going into preterm labor. Fortunately, after I had thrown up my dinner, the stomach cramps stopped.

You would think being sick, one would get lots of knitting done. Nope… Still working on my baby blanket. I’ve barely picked up the needles the past 2 days. Props to everyone who can knit while sick. I’ve spent the day passed out on the couch. Waldo has been very happy.

Hopefully, I’ll be well enough to go knitting with my Saturday group. If I’m not there, you’ll know where I am.



  1. sensitive tummy = girl! I didn’t think I got into the myths, but I never got sick or morning sickness and craved lemons and popped out 3 boys…just sayin’.
