Went to doctor yesterday

and told him I felt like a fraud being there - when he asked why I told him I wasn't feeling THAT sick - but wanted to shut the hubster up from bugging me to go to see him. I guess my Dr's idea and my idea of what THAT sick is are different. I ended up with 3 shots, a double round of zithromax and a double round of the cough syrup with codeine. So basically since I started the meds yesterday I have slept. In fact I slept the latest I think I ever slept in my life - went to bed around 2am last night and woke up at 11:30am this morning YIKES -- then this afternoon I slept in the chair a bit and then went in to lie down at 7 woke up at 9 and took my syrup again about an hour ago and am ready to go to bed in about a half hour from now.

I did knit about 6 rows on my vest front - and since it seems I can't type under the influence I don't know how good my knitting under the influence will be. ;)

I did find a shawl or scarf I want to try - it is called Dipsy Doodle and here is a link if I can remember how to do it Dipsy Doodle scarf
I think that I would like to do a cable on the other side of it where there isn't one - so it is balanced out better.... I also would like to do it wider so it would be a shawl - I think this is more scarf size. But maybe first doing the it the actual size it is written would be a good idea since I have never done either cables or lace - ya think?

But first to get my vest done while I can still wear it this year. There isn't that much to do I am 1/3 up on the final front piece then the little pieces that go up the sides and around the arms are all I have to do - I just need to work on it when I am feeling less woozy from the cough syrup...and maybe less upset stomach wise from the pills.

And remember any mistakes in this post or weirder than usual phrasing of things or missed spelling errors are all due to the meds.

Oh Rho! I hope the meds kick in quickly! It's good you're getting tons of sleep, that in itself will help.

Ask hubby to make you some homemade chicken soup!

Thanks for your comment on my blog--it was a fun day. And being another very happy retired person, I had the time to just hang out and enjoy.

I hope you're feeling better this weekend.

Hey, cables and lace aren't that hard.
Trust me.
You'll love the new experience with patterns.

Soon you'll be trying a fisherman sweater for DH :)

Hope you're feeling better soon.
Those damn germs keep bugging you :-(

You were a lot sicker than you thought. I'm glad your hubster bugged you to go get it checked!

I think I finally got this blog to come up from all my links, favorites etc. Yippie!
