Cue the violins

I should know better than to try to stitch when I am taking cold medicine, right?

Especially one that is mostly alcohol, right?

Well, I didn't. And it bit me in the butt.

I was making such good progress on my freebie. I thought, "This is not so bad. I must be only moderately high, because I can do this." Then last night, when I was feeling moderately better, I sat down to watch Ghost Hunters and stitch, and realized I was off. I had counted wrong. FRACK FRACK FRACK! So I spent most of the show, which was a particularly good one, frogging. I was so mad at myself.

Maybe I should just put my stitching down til I feel better. I do feel scads better this morning. I am not saying the Nyquil helped that much. It at least didn't help me sleep any better, because it took a while for me to fall asleep last night, but this cold doesn't seem to be lasting as heinously long for me as some of my other colds. I certainly don't think I got it as bad as SO had it--he looked like death warmed over whereas I just look like I had a really fun night at the bar.

Oh dear, I think I sent you my frog ... if you rememeber I posted a few days ago about mistakes I had made in counting and you kindly referred to the finished piece as an "original" ... I'll give you the same advice you gave me ... don't be so hard on yourself.

I've found that being sick and stitching don't really go together :oS Good thing you found the frog now. Hope you're feeling better soon :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
