Gentle Reminders

This evening Steve dared go off into the dark, dark night and leave me all alone with two little boys while he plays poker. And on his way out the door he said something or other about the new computer being ready for me.

Oh sweet husband/system administrator (please note seemingly angry lady is actually happy lady that is well enough to have her husband run off into the dark, dark night)! This is his gentle reminder that I am woefully behind on the blog and I "needs to git wit it" to please the parents, in-laws, and friends who are going crazy mad for updates on my health. [Please note my Mittbonics.]

So after much fun playing with new computer -- come on, I didn't even want to quit to write a post -- I'm here to report that all is well. I'm still a little winded, hoarse, and slightly itchy. But it appears that I am holding up and am not allergic to yet another family of antibiotics. Phew! I was feeling like a big red target and fine print reading, "Vulnerable to Anthrax" was taped to my chest.

I bet you all think I just moped in bed all day for the past week. I'll Thank You Very Much that is actually, exactly what I did. But while there, because I just can't sit still to save my life, I did some stuff:

a) Watched WAY too much Jon Stewart Show
b) Embroidered all 12 months of the flower-of-the-month embroidery patterns. Actually I finished 13 because I did NOT know Asters were NOT yellow. Excuuuuse me! Had to look those up on the Internet and unpick my work and re-embroider September.
c) Made a quilty, button-down scarfy thing
d) decided that I need a spa day

And there you have it, pneumonia did NOT kill me (so stop your wishing).
