This morning I woke up bright and early all ready to cast on for my Camp Loopy project. It sometimes takes me a couple of tries to get started so I had started and ripped several times and was finally on a roll.
Then I remembered that last night I had stuck a Dr. Pepper in the freezer and forgot about it. Sure enough . . it had exploded and made a huge mess. The freezer needed to be cleaned out anyway.
Got the freezer nice and clean and sat down to knit again.
Chad is so sick with tonsillitis and is probably going to have to have his tonsils out. He had an appointment with the ENT on the Tuesday after the tornado in Joplin (the ENT is in Joplin) so we had to re-schedule that for yesterday which worked out for us because Chad got sick with tonsillitis again on Monday. The doctor gave him a Z-pack and he started that yesterday afternoon but is still running fever. By this afternoon he should be starting to feel better.
But, just as I got my knitting going, I heard him downstairs being sick. Aren’t you glad I didn’t take pictures for the blog? 🙂 He was careful to eat before taking the antibiotics and when he came in from work last night, he ate a snack to have something on his stomach but I think he’s taking Tylenol on an empty stomach — he’s having such a hard time keeping the fever down. Chad said he was sick because of sinus drainage so he called the doctor here and he suggested he take Claritin but I wanted him to eat before taking anything else so I fixed pancakes. He wanted something soft and requested the pancakes.
In the process of making the pancakes I didn’t realize a glass was in the kitchen sink and when I dropped the pancake batter bowl in the sink, I broke Vince’s favorite glass — the one from Sweet Water Brewing in Atlanta. He’s not going to be happy but I figure . . it was an accident and that’s one less thing to move!
So now . . it’s 10:30 and I haven’t even had a shower. With the way my morning is going . . I’m almost afraid to do anything else but I must get my shower, get the house back in showroom condition in case the realtor calls (which isn’t happening much!) and then I’m going to sit and knit. That’s the plan anyway!
