SERIOUSLY, one of the worst weeks of my life!
It started last Tuesday, the 15th for me. Our 6 year old twin daughter had been coughing for a few days previous. She complained of a headache but never had any other symptoms with it so I gave her some Motrin and went on with life. I started feeling bad Tuesday evening. Still able to take care of everything but just really dragging with a headache. By Wednesday my head was hurting pretty good with body aches and I had a temp of 100 +. It went down from there :( A friend came in on Friday to get my groceries for me and her family brought in a pot of chicken soup. By Saturday my temp was at 103.3 and Anna Belle (our twin daughter) was 102. By late Saturday afternoon, I was back down to 101. I went to Urgent Care on Monday. I was dehydrated so they hooked me up to IV fluids and gave me a shot of antibiotic through my IV. I have an Upper Respiratory Infection and a Kidney Infection. I'm getting better but WHOA, was I sick!! And still taking care of the 3 kids in the house. Don't know how.....you know you've done it, too. We are, after all, SuperMoms!!
I wanted to share a few pieces that I got done for the "BUG SWAP" that Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies had.
I sent a box of goodies out just yesterday as my sickness made me a few days late. I hope my Partner enjoys it.
I've been 'shopping' the internet for patterns. Pattern Mart has large variety from various artists and I was able to discover Mulberry Memories and her watermelon Patterns. I purchased a few of Old Annie Primitives Uncle Sam Hat Tucks and Uncle Sam Heads from her shop. I don't know if I'll get too many done this year but there's always next year! I bought Tawny's cute SUNFLOWERS pattern over at The Primitive Nook and hope to get a few of these done soon. In anticipation of the season's to come, I purchased 2 of Bittersweerfolkart's patterns. CANNOT wait to get into these two! I've already made a few Witches Boots and Crows. With the month of June approaching fast we'll be looking at the 'Holiday Season' before you know it and we 'crafters' have to stay on our toes!
Hoping you are all well and stay clear of this 'flu-like' disease.
I'll have one more give away for the month of June and then take a break through July,
