Cold Season and Holidays

I think the title summed it up nicely.

I've been off work all week, taking some much needed vacation time, even though I spent it all at home, and Hubby came home from work this week with a cold. He gave it to a co-worker, and between the two of them I've got it now. It feels like my head is going to explode.

On my first day off, I did 3 loads of laundry, and I did the dishes, and I cleaned some of the kitchen. On my third day off I made quiche. It was really good! A double recipe lasted that night, and until lunch the next day... So I made it again Thursday!

I've been working on my brother's sweater... It's driving me crazy... I don't think I'll make another sweater again, unless it's bigger yarn, or a looser stitch... It hurts my hands if I work on it for more than 5 minutes. So I took a break from sweater making, and started on my youngest niece's star-shaped afghan last night. I used an entire ball of yarn (one of the bigger ones) before I went to bed.

One day (possibly even yesterday) the toilet overflowed... So I got to clean the bathroom, and I figured I'd clean the rest of the kitchen while I was at it. (Hooray for vacations!)

And I finally saw my chiropractor last Sunday. After a month of not seeing him, and falling down the stairs, he had to do quite a bit... My right leg was an inch and a half shorter than my left from favoring my left ankle.

Speaking of my left ankle, instead of being a complex arrangement of bones, tendons and ligaments, it feels like someone put in a bag of marbles and a large wad of chewing gum.

Aside from all of that I've also not been sleeping very well, and it is currently 2:09 AM, so I'm sorry if my post is scattered.

That is the best description of an ankle I've heard!

Thanks Veronica, it's about the best description I could think of.
My other description is that my foot is tied onto my leg with string some days, it's so floppy...

It's such fun to have time to squander, is it not? It doesn't come along very often. I'm sorry you're not sleeping better. Have you tried an electric blanket? It helps my daughter remain relaxed and warm while she sleeps.

I actually have really warm fuzzy blankets, on top of me and under me, with the option of throwing a nice big duvet over that... There's also a PILE of blankets at the foot of the bed. I can get pretty nice and toasty...
