I realize that my immune system is total crap as evidenced by my dozens of allergies. But I used to be able to weather colds pretty well. Last year I had one that lasted over 4 weeks and this current one is starting it's 3rd week. From what I hear, my experience is not unique. Instead of flu shots maybe we all need cold shots. Poor Chris has it now but a 2-week-long cold for me is usually 3 days for him.
One of my problems is that I'm really limited in the meds I can take so I usually just have to ride it out. Plus I always get laryngitis and that can last for weeks. Today I feel much better which is good because I'm having lunch with some former work friends that I haven't seen is a while. They will just have to do all of the talking!
I seriously spent most of last week napping, coughing and watching TV. I did try to work on my ornament some but ran out of that gold braid. In over 130 kits that's only happened twice. I called and they immediately sent me replacement braid. Unfortunately I bought this kit a few years ago so they've since replaced the braid and the new stuff is too yellow. When I go out for lunch today I'll be stopping by Hobby Lobby to find something else that I can substitute. I think it only needs to be narrow and gold because no one really looks at these very close.I really, really want to get this finished and call an end to my ornament phase.
I've also started working on my Christmas postcards. I didn't make a ton of progress but at least I've made some!
My goal today it to just get myself reorganized and see how I've left things. I need to catch up on dyeing orders and get my sewing room reorganized. Since I can't talk to anyone maybe I won't get too distracted!
