Too sick to knit :(
I came home today from work with the beginnings of the flu. Achy, sweaty, cold, etc. For the record I HATE it when people come to work sick, it just gets everyone else sick. We've all worked there a long time, it's a small company, no one's job is going to suffer if you go home sick. So I came home, ate soup and went to bed for 2 hours. I hate being home and feeling crummy. You can't get anything done. I couldn't concentrate on schoolwork, so I went out to rake. The fresh air and excercise (with a LOT of breaks) actually did me good. But I still felt crummy so back went on the jammies and I thought I would sit down with Silver's palindrome pattern and make my winter scarf. All of my family members have a nice hand made scarf from me. I don't have one. I found out I'm too sick to knit. Apparently I can rake just fine. But I cannot count 2x2 ribbing. I cannot cable. I cannot rip out and cast on the same amount of stitches. It's a scarf. And I can't make it because I feel like poo. I only hope this doesn't last

There's a bug that's definitely going around the country. I had it and I know several others who have had it or are coming down with it.

Time to just pamper yourself, drink lots of fluids, and rest as much as possible.

Sorry you're feeling crummy.

Sorry you're not feeling well. :(

Time to put the knitting aside, cuddle up with a blanket and pick-up the remote. Shot in the dark here -- X-Files reruns, perhaps?

That's a decent idea! I have season 1 on dvd, and all seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I'm a bit of a fan) After cable gets thru with it's marathon of funniest home videos I might get those out!

I'm so sorry to hear you are feeling ill, its really boring sitting at home when your brain won't concentrate on anything. Generally when feeling crummy I curl up on the sofa, or in bed, with a hot drink and watch dvds, I also find chocolate helps, depends how crummy you feel.
Get well soon!!!

There is something going around, that is for sure!

Perhaps you'll get over it quickly!
