It was a not so good weekend for me…I ended up off work on Friday with the flu. I am not one to do nothing…but Friday that’s exactly what I did. I thought I would initially be okay. I was up at 5:30, dressed and headed to the sewing room. I started tacking down a binding and as I worked I felt a little worse and worse. Then I got a call from one of my childcare moms. Her daughter was puking. Hmm…would I be puking soon? I started to wonder.
By 7:15 Carver got dropped off and from there I went downhill quickly. I talked to my other families and contacted Kalissa and said I needed a sick day. I imagined I’d be able to sit and cross stitch or do something…but nope. I mostly slept the day away. I NEVER take a nap. NEVER.
I took THREE naps. Once I even fell asleep with my shoes on. I slept over five hours during the day. I was sure once night came that I wouldn’t be able to sleep but I did. I slept another 10 hours. WOW. The next day I wasn’t 100% but I was able to do stuff. I wasn’t throwing up anymore but eating was limited.
Blog reader Ila always says I live in a petri dish with childcare here and she’s so right. Each time I get sick I always think of her telling me that!
Anyway…we were suppose to have our family Christmas and baptism over the weekend and that didn’t happen. We were expecting snow and winds and COLD. The forecast predicted -45 below zero on Sunday morning after snows of 4-9 inches the day before. With kids traveling to get home, we didn’t want to risk it. That was disheartening but better safe.
Anyway…I spent most of Saturday catching up on computer work. I’m still not completely caught up but closer. I’m happy with the progress I did make…and computer work was a perfect thing to be doing when I didn’t feel the best.
I cut out the piece for the clue for the mystery on Saturday and sewed the pieces on Sunday. I am completely caught up.
I am super happy with that. We don’t have a lot going on next weekend so I think I’ll be able to stay caught up.
After the clue was done I went back to this….
I had hoped to have this off the quilt frame but alas…it didn’t happen. I am over half done so I’m happy with that. Hopefully this week that can happen.
I did bind this quilt.
I’m hoping to get some photos taken of it and show it off here on Friday. I’m so happy….little by little more projects are getting finished.
For those of you who have asked, I will keep doing the UFO Progress reports on Wednesday. It keeps me accountable. Goodness knows I need something to keep me on track.
