Sympathy Post

Today's post is made purely in self pity. I'm sick. And I don't like it. Yuck. I haven't been able to speak at all for about 48 hours and my throat hurts more than I can remember it ever hurting before.


I'm going to the doctor today and hopefully they can see if there is something "officially" wrong with me that can be cured with medication...unlike the cold which can linger forever. But if this is just a cold, then it better be the last one I get!


I actually had enough energy yesterday to get a little sewing done, but today...nothing so far. We'll see if I perk up at all as the day goes on. I am a night owl. My hands still work, so I can type...but my brain is moving pretty slowly... but still, maybe I'll at least be able to work on a quilt design or something.


I almost put out the emergency plea for fabric support last night because I was so tempted to buy something to make me feel better. Instead I had chips and dip. I'm still not sure whether I made the right call on that one. ;)


So whoa is me... :(

  1. I hope you can be cured at the doctor's office today! If not, here's my friend's Citrus Brew Recipe: 2 grapefruits, 1 lemon, 2 limes, 4 oranges. Cut into chunks and boil in a huge pot of water for 30 minutes, then mash up with potato masher to get all the good stuff from the rind in there as well. Remove chunks. Add honey to taste. Drink warm and often!

  2. I hope you feel better. I know what you mean about the fabric shopping. I have been stuck in bed for the past three days but I have managed to stay well away from any dangerously tempting sites.

    p.s. don't want to interfere with anyones recipes...but if you cook citrus fruits for 30 minutes none of the vitamins are intact anymore...you'll better eat them & drink a cup of herbal tea (with sage if you suffer from fever...)

  9. Poor you, glad you are seeing the doctor- and remember that all illnesses are self limiting; you get better, or you die. ;0) xxx

  11. My secret sore throat tea is made from star anise, fennel, licorice root, ginger, honeysuckle, and willow bark. I usually add some lemon/lime/orange juice for vitamin C. Some hot pepper flakes can numb everything until the healing begins. Send someone to an oriental grocery store for the odd ingredients. Works better than anything I've found at a pharmacy.

  12. oh, poor you! Hope the Dr gives you some nice medicine to take that nasty bad throat away. How about entering some giveaways? At least you might trick yourself into thinking some fabric is on the way!!! I know, I'm the worst person to offer up this kind of advice.....having badly fallen off the wagon in January.

  13. LMAO!!! I don't know, that would be a tough call. Chips and dip or fabric. Hmmmmm. I have to say, I *may* have chosen fabric a few nights ago. I *may* have ordered the ENTIRE Folksy Flannel line. I'm a diet failure. I've just never seen the whole collection in one place and in stock, so I caved. :( I should have had chips and dip.

    I hope you feel better soon girl!

  16. Get well soon! My hubby and I both had the cold from hell over Christmas - it really was horrible and we both ended up on antibiotics. You're doing the right thing going to the docs, I hope he gives you something to put you on the road to recovery.

  17. I wish I were closer so that I could bring over some chicken noodle soup :) I hope you feel better REALLY soon!

  18. no fun! I do hope you are feeling better today, at least enough to feel like sewing! If it helps, I did enough fabric shopping yesterday to satisfy a few of us, so you can stay clean. I'll get back on my diet next week!
