I, on the other hand, got worse before I got better. I have been bed ridden or sofa-ridden for days. Hubby has been taking up the slack. He took me to the doctor today. I've never been so happy to get a shot in the rear!!!
It took the injection an hour or so to start working. I'm finally feeling a bit human again. We're supposed to be hosting our family on Christmas Eve afternoon. I think they're all afraid they'll get sick, but I don't think I'm contagious. And I'm thinking two days from now, I'll really be a lot better. Then on the 26th, maybe I can work on THE Quilt again, because I haven't felt like walking up the stairs to the studio for days, much less standing and fusing bit of fabric.
I got the nicest e-mail from a friend, Patty B., this afternoon with well wishes. She sent me the follow "green" tip that I want to share with you:
"I wanted to tell you about my "green" Christmas. Ray's family had their family Christmas get together Saturday night. I had several small children to buy presents for. When I looked at paper Christmas bags, they are anywhere from $2-5 and just get thrown away. I had read somewhere that a good idea was to buy a market bag instead. Winn Dixie had green market bags for 99c so I bought them for all the kids. It turned out to be my great nephew's favorite present. He put all his toys in the bag and carried it around all night saying, 'ho ho ho.' He's four. It was so cute. So 'going green' was a big success this year. Last year I made bags out of extra fabric, but the time just wasn't there this year so this was a great alternative, and cheaper than buying a 'throw away, bag."
What a great idea!
