When the Cats Away...

...The mice will get sick, apparently!

My husband got a new job and had to fly to Seattle for two weeks for training.  I admit, I hate it when my husband leaves for more than a few hours.  But I decided that this time I was going to make the most of it.  I had big plans for sewing and doing fun things with the kids (Not to mention packing because we have to move by the first, but that's a whole other story. We are moving right next door.  Literally).

Anyway, since I had all these great plans, what happens?  I go ahead and get sick!  And I mean sick SICK.  I can't remember a time when I felt this bad.  I have a raging ear infection, sinus infection and a fever. I've lost three pounds in the last few days and i'm convinced that it's because of all the fluid loss from the nose blowing.  This has been going on for three days.  I am so sick that i've drank all of a half of bottle of Diet Pepsi in three days -- nomally I have an IV drip.

I am starting to feel a bit better though, so hopefully if I can just manage to get a good nigths sleep (I never sleep well when hubby is gone) i'll feel better and can get to the fun stuff.

Currently on the table is the dress on the cover of My Image magazine.  This is my second 'test' although I had plans on wearing this one.  I'm proud to say I have to take in the side seams, and that's what i'm working on now.  Hopefully i'll get that done for the Friday Night Sew In.  Which is this Friday, BTW.
