Will the madness never end???

If it's not entirely clear from the title, I assure you that I am still knitting endless rows of garter stitch. While this may not make for an earth-shattering revelation, it is, alas, what it is.

I'm also getting over another of those annoying virus thingies that have plagued me this winter. While I try to inject a little humor into my blog, I lack the great comedic genius of those who wring every ounce of laughter from a bout of the flu and subsequent infections and narcotic cough syrup episodes.

I've just managed to spend the past weekend, and bulk of the week, miserable and crabby . . . while knitting endless rows of garter stitch . . . when not collapsed in a Nyquil-induced haze of drowsiness.

However, as the fever dreams are subsiding and the cold symptoms seem to be retreating (I can almost smell things again), I am actually hopeful that the end of the garter stitch is in sight.

Who knows, maybe I'll even have a FO to show by the end of the weekend.

Then again, hubby now has symptoms of coming down with the virus thingie. There's nothing like nursing a sick husband to put knitting on hold.

We are in the middle of conferences tonight and I am quite chagrined that I am the only one in the family that didn't get to go down to the "Mooch" tonight to watch some most excellent hockey. I saw in the paper that Chaska's quarter-final playoff game was on that very snowy night! Do you think Hockey Man will play again next year?

(I have been listening to hubby bark with a horrible cough for weeks now. He refused to go to the doctor - I think he's afraid the doctor will tell him there's something really serious wrong with him!)

Oh dear! I'm so sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. I speak from experience, here: take care of yourself and rest!

Of course, if you stay sick you get to take codeine. Codeine makes everything funny. Even garter stitch...

(my verification word is "porgish." That's funny, too. Although I have no idea why. :)

Colds just seem to pull a haze over life. Like living in a cloud - hope you get better soon. In the future, any chance you are going to Shepherd's Harvest?
