Thanks to everyone who wished that I get well soon. Last night, I think I went to bed at around 11pm-ish, and then woke up briefly around 4am and didn’t get back to sleep until around 6am-ish. Then I woke up again (because someone woke up me for lunch near noon). Oh, and having to move clocks forward an hour really screwed me up this morning because I needed to turn my cell phone off and then back on again in order to get the time change, but I had my laptop on before I did that, so I was looking at the laptop time and getting so confused.
And just a few things that I’ve learned while being sick this weekend:
- It is not a good idea to do any form of bead crafting as you will leave beading needles on your bed and you will end up with one in your leg (or arm, or hand) while sleeping and wake up in pain because you just jabbed one into your leg.
- It is also not a good idea to crochet anything, because when you’re slightly loopy (or more than usual, whatever), you end up with horrible tension and have to take out the last five rows that you did.
In other words: crafting in general is a bad idea. Even if you’re absolutely sure that you’re perfectly well enough to handle it. Because you’re not. Because you end up with beading needles in your leg, or a few rows of single crochet to undo.
That being said, I also got some great life lessons today from my mom. I’ll type them up later when I can actually think about it without laughing too hard.
