Flu - Cold? Flold?

Just in case you are wondering why I haven't visited your blogs or commented on your posts - I've been down with the flu, or cold, or a mixture of both over the last few days. I found myself in bed with nausea, headache, runny nose, and fever, not the most fun bed companions, I can tell you! New Years Eve fireworks popped up in my feverish dreams. Sam was torn between wanting to stay with me, and running to hide as fast a he could. I left the door open so he could come back, whenever he felt comfortable. Anyway, I'm better today, but right now, my ears feel like they are stuffed with cotton balls, that's quite a weird feeling. Nose is still running, but thank god, the nausea is gone. I'm still shaky on my feet. Being here on the computer will be a short stunt, sweat is forming already on my forehead. I'd better head off to my bed now. Hopefully kicking out those unwanted bed fellows. Needless to say, that no knitting, or spinning, or any kind of activity has been going on around here. The only fiber activity I could mention are the dust bunnies lurking and multiplying with hysterical laughter. I wonder, do men know how to operate the vacuum cleaner? Do they know where it's located, in case I'm having nightmares about dust bunnies taking over the world..... (I'm sure its only the men in my household who don't know). Now, I'm really better off to bed....


Have a wonderful New Year!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well! Hope you feel better soon. I'm also fighting the sniffles, but I'm so thankful that I didn't get them before or on Christmas. Take care!

Ich hoffe, es geht Dir bald wieder besser! Da hat es Dich ja richtig erwischt, mit allem, was dazu gehört und was man nicht wirklich braucht. Wenn Du schon nicht stricken oder spinnen kannst, dann muss es wirklich schlimm sein. Ich wünsche Dir trotzdem alles Gute für das Neue Jahr und komm schnell wieder auf die Beine.

Oh you poor thing. I hope you are feeling well soon. Do you have a bell to ring when you need something?? Do people run to your aid?? I hope they do.

I hope you are feeling much better soon, being sick is no fun.

And the guys in my house don't know how either.

MommySusie said...

So sorry you were bit by that nasty bug. Hope you are well soon. I empathize, sympathize and so totally know how you feel. Yuck!

DAWN said...

I hope you feel better enough to knit soon! I'm sorry to say that my Hubby does almost all the vacuuming in our house because of my allergies. Maybe you should become allergic to dust bunnies? :-)

Larry said...

Well, that's a heck of a way to start a new year. I'm relieved to hear that you're beginning to recover. It's a terrible way to feel plus we miss you.

Robbyn said...

No, it isn't only the men in your household who ignore vacuum cleaners. Men don't see dust bunnies the way women do. In fact I suspect men don't see them at all.

Glad you're on the upswing of your bug and I hope you're on your feet again soon :)

You know, nothing says you have to worry about dust bunnies either!

sgeddes said...

Take some time and get better! The fiber will be there waiting for you.

Margene said...

I've been in the same boat for 2 weeks! Feel better soon.

Horse 'n' Round said...

There has definitely been something going around. I've been suffering from the cold version myself. Hope you kick it quickly!

Pat said...

wishing you WELL!!

Kris said...

Sorry to hear that you caught the flold. I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care of yourself.

Alice said...

Feel better soon! It truly sounds terrible. Get lots of rest and take care!

hakucho said...

Take good care of yourself...and feel better real soon. Don't worry about your house...just concentrate on getting well. Maybe if your lucky the heinselmann will come during the night and clean for you. That's what my (German)grandmother would say when she needed her house cleaned...not sure if I have spelled it correctly or not?

Get well soon :)

Angelika said...

Your knitting and blogging absence is excused. With bed fellows like this the only thing I can say I NyQuil. Hope you are up and running, I mean knitting, soon. Gute Besserung. Gesundheit.

Dave said...

Sorry you have been under the weather... Hope your 2008 starts looking up! :-)

Rina said...

Hallo Monika

ich wünsche dir von Herzen gute Besserung, auf dass du bald wieder Lust auf Wolle, Nadeln und Spinnrad hast.
Ich habe deine Kyla nachgestrickt und bin happy. Danke, dass du uns die Anleitung zur Verfügung stellst.
Ein tolles Neues Jahr wünscht dir
Rina

Oh nooooooooo! Feel better fast! Maybe it's time to hire a cleaning lady. LG, Rachel

Violiknit said...

I'm so sorry you weren't feeling well; and unfortunately, men don't even know what a vacuum cleaner is, so they are no help in the war against dust bunnies...
