It’s been about 36 hours, and my idlewood is almost dry. It should be ready to wear tomorrow. (Yay!) That’s not the only thing I’m waiting on, though. I woke up Monday morning feeling lousy, and I only felt worse as the day went on. I shook a lot of hands and ate a lot of communal food this weekend, and I’m pretty sure I was exposed to some form of the flu. Yesterday was a day of fever, chills, and fogginess. Oh, and Chinese take-out. (Ordering the take-out was the hardest thing I did yesterday.) I’m cautiously optimistic that today will be a little better, but really, it’s too early to tell. I’m just going to focus on giving myself the time to recover, and I’m going to try not to feel guilty about how much work I could be doing if I felt better.

More soon. (Because I might not be able to read when my body and brain feel like this, but I can knit.)

  1. So, so sorry for you. I’d blame me, but thankfully blogging doesn’t pass on germs. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Get well soon! I hope you’re feeling a bit better already! Your Idlewood looks good, even while blocking!

  3. Oh, feel better soon! I had the flu a couple of years ago and thought it would be the death of me!! It sucks that you just can’t even enjoy slacking a little…. I would send a hug, but you have germs. ;-)

  4. The flu and crud are everywhere. I think it has everything to do with this crazy weather we all have been having. Drinks lots of warm liquids and rest.
