Sigh… have you ever had one of those weeks? I’m definitely having one of those weeks, except that it’s stretching into 2 weeks… not good.
For 3 days following the 2012 PA Farm Show, I endured one of the worst headaches ever. I get headaches a lot, and they usually last 2-3 days, because no medicine ever helps. They’re not fun, but they’re tolerable… until this last one. For 3 days, I came home from work, briefly thought about blogging… then went straight to bed.
After the headache finally subsided, I endured one of the worst head colds ever. It was something between a really bad cold and a really bad allergy attack – something that I don’t typically suffer from on a seasonal basis. I think my friend and weaver extraordinaire Libby Beiler had it right when she diagnosed me with Farm Show Flu – an ailment that attacks those who spend an inordinate amount of time among the throngs of spectators, animals, hay, and dust. For 5 days, I came home from work, briefly thought about blogging… then went straight to bed.
Yesterday morning, I endured one of the worst burns that I ever had, ever. The doctor diagnosed it as a borderline 3rd degree. This is what happens when you try to carry a too-full pot of boiling water outside to your garden to de-ice the birdbath, hoping that you’ll attract a flock of something other than the adorable dark-eyed juncos that frequent your yard:
It’ll take a lot of ointment and sterile dressing, but this will heal. So before I send myself straight to bed, I thought I’d get back to the blog, just for a few minutes. More yarny adventures coming soon (c’mon, did you think a borderline 3rd degree burn was going to keep me from knitting?). But for now…
