A Thursday Post

I don't usually post on Thursdays, but I really want to get back in the habit of posting twice a week, and tomorrow morning I'll be out bringing Lee Lee to the vet for her dental, so here we are. Her teeth really are in bad shape, and I think they'll be removing four or five of the eight or nine she has left (I think only her canines are safe, but we'll have to wait for the x-rays to be sure). 

Yesterday was ROUGH. I woke up several times during the night in pain and when I finally got up in the morning I was sore and achy all over. It took me a couple hours to remember that I'd gotten my flu shot on Tuesday, and that flu shots can cause some achiness for the next day or two. I brought my laptop out to my comfy chair to work, I loaded up on ibuprofen, and I took two epsom salt baths throughout the day and today I'm feeling much better. I've never reacted to a flu shot before, and while the aches yesterday sucked, they certainly sucked a lot less than the actual flu would. 

Knitting: today's photo is garter stitch, which I for some reason really disliked when I first started knitting but now it is one of my greatest loves. This is the start of what will eventually be one of the samples for a fingering-weight version of Easy A, which I am really looking forward to, but it's going to take months before they're finished and ready for publication. Right now, it's great class knitting, and I'll probably bring it to the vet tomorrow to work on while Lee Lee's under.

  1. I hope Lee Lees appointment is as easy as can be. Anesthesia can be hard on fur babies. Extra cuddles are called for, and it sounds like you could use some too. Good job getting your flu shot.
