Boy, I haven't been very creative with the blog post titles lately. I'm purposely keeping it short & sweet and just a simple what's on the needles post today because sadly, I've succumbed to the Patient First Creeping Crud disease. It's not the flu, but I feel oogy. I'm living on a cocktail of Mucinex, Sudafed & Tums. Apparently the Mucinex-Sudafed combo causes incredibly horrid indigestion.
I haven't been knitting much. Yesterday, I didn't wake up until after 1 p.m. and last night/this morning, it was after 5:30 a.m. when I was finally able to fall asleep. And of course, I woke up at 7:15 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. So today, I'm just plain stupid. Stupid with a massive case of indigestion. That kind of stupid where you turn the washing machine on without putting any dirty clothes into it & you dump the dog food into the water bowl instead of the food bowl.
So yeah, I'm feeling oogy & cursing Patient First's germy air. On the bright side, Zack's broken thumb is doing well. It's still a rainbow of colors but the swelling has gone down considerably and as long as he keeps it splinted & doesn't bump it on anything, he says it doesn't hurt. Actually, he says the tetanus shot hurt worse than the broken thumb. I'm just glad his thumb is looking more like a thumb should look. When he first broke it, his knuckle was swollen up more than twice as high as normal, plus the skin was split open & oozing blood. And, as if that wasn't bad enough, the pad of his thumb had a horrible lump protruding out & downwards. I can't believe we didn't take pictures. It was my baby's first broken bone after all.
Happy New Year's! Be safe out there.
