a knitter navigates through life

will to live . . . returning!

And thank god, because for a few days there, I was my very own cadre of dwarves: Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy, Achy, Phlegmy, and Irritable. Because what's more fun that getting sick? Getting sick WHILE starting your period! Fun! It was the really passive-aggressive type of sick, too, where the thermometer never registered above 99.4. If I feel this crappy, dangit, I should have an actual fever. But, hallelujah, the illness seems to be receding, I think I'm going to live, and I feel well enough to be happy about it.

In other news, the weather turned abruptly cold and crappy the day after Thanksgiving ("the forecast for today: cold and crappy, becoming extremely crappy in the afternoon. Tomorrow: continuing crappiness with a chance of wet and crappy in the evening.") And this is the state my socks are in.

Must knit faster.

Oh, I hate that passive-aggressive "I feel like crap but I can't manage a real fever so I guess I have to go to work anyway" sickness. I slept all Thanksgiving weekend trying to recover and my scratchy throat is STILL back. Yuck.

Unproven, unscientific observation here - I think immunity levels drop during PMS which is why you will always have the flu with your period.

As for socks, I think they're great. Thanks for the yarn info.

Sorry you've been sick, but yay for feeling even a bit better. I hear it's going to be 70 this weekend, so maybe that will help you cold be gone for good!
