Gosh, it feels like it's been FOREVER since I've spoken to you all, and I'VE MISSED YOU, KITTENS. It's been kind of crazy since my last post, so let's catch up:
-Saturday my mum and my sister and I went to Omaha for the day. It was tons of fun—we ate at our favorite sandwich/salad place, we went to a huge used book sale, and we stocked up at Trader Joe's—and even the long drives were enjoyable. Between the drive there and the drive back (about two hours each way) we saw twenty-three hawks (!!) and three bald eagles (!!!).
-Sunday I was exhausted and starting to feel a little crummy. I spent pretty much the whole day at home, did the bare minimum of housekeeping, and spent lots of time in bed with Lee Lee.
-Monday I felt like a colony of fire ants had moved into my throat. The doctor said it wasn't strep, probably a cold, and I tried resting and drinking fluids. Monday night I also had to go back into the dance studio to fit some costumes.
-Tuesday the cough and sinus congestion kicked in, and they've been holding pretty steady ever since. I don't know what this crud is, but there's a lot of crud going around this town (small town with four schools AND a major university = a petri dish of weird viruses that we all just keep passing around forever and ever).
So that's pretty much been me. I skipped choir and dance this week in favor of trying to get more rest, but I still don't feel like I'm on the upswing yet. In one tiny flash of good news, I did finally manage to get all the math and construction notes done for a new pattern for summer and have cast on the sample, which I'm so far finding ridiculously charming.
