I am ILL, and it really sucks. At first I couldn't laugh because it made me cough more, and now if I laugh or cough it makes my ribs hurt a bunch. In a way it's not all bad though, because I get to ignore some of the situations and particularly, the people, that have been driving me nuts lately and making me feel constantly angry, depressed, and/or irritable. It's been going on like that for weeks now, so I believe my body decided to get sick to give me a break.
I have retained one worry about work though. Wednesday is my first scheduled knitting class and it will also very likely be the first class that has enough students so that they will actually PAY me for teaching it. Gosh, I know, how remarkable! So I desperately want to be able to make it in for that, but I'm not going to drag myself in front of a room of people when I may spend the 2 1/2 hours coughing on them and throwing up instead of teaching them how to knit. I think that would be worse than having to reschedule, from the students point of view, right? But on the other hand, I'm not sure if anyone up there knows HOW to reschedule classes, so this may just be a choose your own disaster situation. If possible, I'm going for the one that I get paid for
Wish me luck, good health, and significantly less mental stress!
I have been making crochet cacti, because they are easy and cute. My first one was nothing spectacular, but they are progressing. I also made a cute little fox. A coworker suggested they'd like to commission me for one, so I'll see if they want it, and if not, it's going up for sale here and/or etsy. I'll post a picture once it has eyes and a nose. I paused houndoom and the other 3 remaining pokemon commissions while I'm sick because pokemon take more effort and specific detail and I'm just not up to it.
