Day 5 - Crafting from My Sick Bed

I along with a mulitude of others have been hit by some sort of flu bug. At first I thought this would be the end to crafting (and posting) every day. This seems to be right about the time millions of Americans give up their resolutions. Was I going to be one of them?

Early on it sure seemed like it. There was no way that I could get up and sit at a table to paint (I've taken 5 breaks while posting this much already). I could grab my sketch book and doodle for a while. But that would require finding my sketch book and I didn't really feel like doing that.

So there I lay on the couch cursing the world and my husband who gave me this stupid bug. I was being subjected to a toddler trying to amuse herself by jumping on me and having toy dinosaurs dance on my legs. It was fun. Time to cash it in, pull the covers over my head and forget this day ever happened.

But then I looked over on the side table and a ball of yarn. I could grab it without really moving so I reached over to see what it was. It was a sweater I had started to crochet for my friend's baby. Huzzah (as she would say)! I could lay on the couch and crochet a row. I didn't even have to lift my head very far off of the pillow. My resolution would remain in tact for one more day. Yippee!

And now that this has been posted, I'm going back to the couch. (In case you were wondering it took 2 hours to write this post - now that is dedication).


  1. I hope you feel better! Those bugs are the worst and mommies never get time off.

  2. One of the biggest cons to being an at home mom. You never get a sick day! Hope you feel better soon!
