The good news is, the water's back on....

The bad news is, a rampant strain of martian death flu is kicking my ass.

My weekend looked like this: Frosty (the bear, a long time friend), lots of tissues, TheraFlu, cough drops, bottled water (since, as per the title, I've had no water in the house - the pipes froze a week ago and only thawed today), Netflix (Hollywoodland - don't tell me what happens), a package from Minh, and a chocolate bar. Dark chocolate with blueberries, cranberries and almonds. That's so healthy it's practically medicine.

I sorta felt bad Friday, but like I could muddle through. Around 3 am Saturday, I was ready to call 911. By 10am, I was praying for death. It didn't come, but I did have to cancel a sock class I was supposed to teach Saturday afternoon (if you were supposed to be in that class, you have no idea how bad I feel about canceling. We'll schedule a make-up date as soon as I can speak and stand upright simultaneously.)

I spent a lot of time this weekend with the boys, who were sufficiently companionable, vicious killers that they are. Aslan's super-intuitive self is so glued to my side I've nearly killed him about fourteen times this weekend. He's been alternating between playing in my hair, licking my face, and following me so closely he's tripping us both. But you know what he looks like - he's the handsome blonde.

I didn't even have the energy to play with my lovely gift from Minh, about 1200 yards of alpaca/wool... gorgeous, gorgeous stuff that I can currently do no more than gaze at lovingly, since knitting is making me dizzy.

I hope you feel better soon!! Is there a way for you to make hot tea with lemon/honey with thawing water pipes?

Oh you poor thing - I had some strain of it - I was doing a great imitation of Linda Blair in "the Exorcist" I never knew you could throw up such a distance. UGH ...

That picture of the pup is the best - that is pure comfort and happiness LOL

Feel better --

Killer martian flu, eh? Perhaps my emergency appendectomy wasn't so bad after all. I really do hear ya about the ability to stand up straight and speak at the same time, tho. Feel better soon.
