Can I go home now?

I need to go to bed. What I thought was a little cold last week is back. It was just toying with me. Giving me a little fever, a solid head and just draining me a bit. 1 1/2 days off from work and I'm all better!

HA! Like I said, it was just toying with me. It was giving me a false sense of security. That was it for flu season? Great, my immunity will be all good for the rest of the year. Alas, it was not to be.

Lulled into the false sense of security that I was done being sick for the season, I stopped taking my Vit C. I quit drinking my Echinacea tea. How wrong I was to not wait until it had fully past. Ah, the confidences of youth.

So now I sit, trying to get my brain working so I can be productive, and all I can think of is my nice warm bed waiting for me at home. My cat who is more than willing to keep my lap warm and play nurse kitty. Playfully batting tissues to keep me entertained.

Oh well, I have managed to keep myself working, and surprisingly got quite a bit done today, including decorating the office:

Lef to knit alone

So I'm left to knit alone this weekend. Which is fine, I suppose. I was going to spend the weekend at Chris' house, but his work and the cats' difference in personality have made it a no go this weekend.

My cat is still totally stumpted to why the other cats didn't want to play or just get along. The other cats didn't like the intrusion in to their home. Or there are just pissy little cats. I mean, who could not like Annie? She's never had this issue with other animals. How where these other cats raised that dislike visitors so much? I have many questions regrding this.

My friends are currently up in Rhinebeck, knitters paradise, and I am here, freezing my bum off about to break my vow not to turn on the heaters until absolutely necessary. I've been told that 70 degrees is a far cry from cold enough to turn on the heat. I'm debating if I can live with out food for the winter and have the heat instead. I've already given up getting my hair done. What more can I give up?

Maybe I'll just get a second job to pay for the heat. Plus if I'm workingall the time, I'll stay out of trouble, right? Hm. I'll have to think on that.

Knit & Knot- A great day at sea!

Can it really get any better than this? I mean, without chocolate?

Testing the waters

Let's see. This is my first ever blog. Yea, me. Hmm. I've thinking I need to start a blog for days, and now I have now idea what to write.

Well, I'm home sick today. Having some interesting hallucinations with the fever. Having no luck making coffee. I've tried 3 times, and it just isn't happening. One pot of coffee, I went to pour a cup and it was clear. Having not put the grinder unit back in properly, I brewed hot water. Second time, I forgot to empty the pot of hot water and had a small flood I managed to catch in time. Third time, I double checked that everything was in its proper place. Pushed the button and went change for the day. I came back to the kitchen to a disaster. Coffee, grounds and water were all over my kitchen counter. Spilling onto the floor. Fortunately, it goes away from the carpet side. Guess that trickeling sound wasn't my zen water fountain.

Diet soda can save lives.
