Return from the dead.....

I have returned to the land of the living. Whew.

I came down with something awful this weekend.

The yard sale was a bust.  We woke up at 7am and it was raining.  Chalking it up as a loss, we went back to bed.  Only to wake up to a BEAUTIFUL FREAKING DAY at 11.  So much for that yard sale.  After making a lap around the neighborhood, ours would have been the crappiest one in the whole subdivision.  The people in my neighborhood are NO JOKE about yard sales.  If there were an Olympic sport for it, Prairie Village would take the gold.

So anyways.... got myself ready, made sure the BF knew what brand of butt covers to buy for the diaper party and we parted ways to go to our respective baby shower events.  (Which, BTW, I'll add here that it is pretty damn bogus for dudes to get to go drink massive amounts of beer and eat hot wings while chicks gotta "ooh" an "awe" and baby talk for 2 hours while the miserably pregnant mother to be does her best not to give birth while opening seven million onesies.  How fair is this?  Don't get me wrong.... my friends are the prettiest pregnant broads you ever saw.  And we can throw one hell of a party.... But this gender standard BS is for the birds.....)

Back to the regularly scheduled program.

Got thru that, watched my Cards put an ass-whoopin on Mizzou State and then got the fever.  The real one, not the figurative one.  Within an hour of dinner, I was begging to go home.  Sunday.... I, the early riser, the can't-sleep-past-8-am person that I am, slept until 4 in the afternoon.  I knew it was bad this time.

Called out sick Monday and headed straight to the doctor.  He gave me these horse pill antibiotics and something to decongest me.  I can barely swallow these suckers.  And when I do... I fear I'll need the Heimlich. 
My pup must have known I was puny.  He followed me around and sat wherever I sat all day.
Tuesday wasn't much better.  But I did get some crafting done while my face was dripping mucus.
I made these canvases for each side of the TV in our bedroom.  They turned out perfect!!!
Thank you Pinterest for the inspiration.  I painted the canvases the same color as our bedroom walls.  And I used a paper doily from the cake section at Hobby Lobby since I didn't have real doilies. I added my own little flair with the letters.  I also finished BF's tree stand steats for this hunting season.  His cushions were dryrotted and he wanted a thicker foam for his sensitive little bum.  So I went to work like a BOSS and made these:
He's all pumped and stuff.  :)  Then I started this toilet paper art idea that I found on Pinterest.
There are now 23 billion little TP flowers all over the place at my house.  I also cut out a quilt.  And lastly, taught myself to crochet a beanie.  I knew how to crochet before, but not in a circle or to make a beanie with increasing stitches and decreasing stitches.  I had to force myself to follow a pattern and count stitches and the like.  It turned out pretty good.  At least BF thinks so :)
Pink is so his color.

So far this week, I've learned that I'm craft ADD.  I went from one project to the next and didn't clean anything up after myself.  And if it weren't for feeling like poo and 643 nose blowings per day, I'd say being sick wasn't so bad.  But then I take another horse pill and I'm reminded that it SUCKS.

Hope you've had a better week than me!
