Home Sick . . .

I can't actually remember the last time I had a cold. A sinus infection, yes. But a real cold - the kind that lasts for 14 days with one remedy and two weeks with another ;-) - it's been awhile. This one is kicking my butt. I was able to walk yesterday - a good long walk on the treadmill - but this morning I could only do four miles and it about killed me. Even my favorite oatmeal didn't revive me, so I made the decision to call in to work. I'm hopeful that my head will clear sometime today and I'll be back to functional.

I got nothing accomplished that was on the list for the weekend except my walk and more work on St. Brigid. I have completed two full repeats of the pattern. It's getting easier - I'm starting to get the hang of the charting nomenclature she uses, but it's just not intuitive for me so I'm still double checking the key pretty much all the time. At least I'm picking up some speed - the first rows took me probably 15 minutes a piece. Yikes!

I watched a Bollywood movie on the treadmill yesterday. They are usually pretty long, and I figured a slow, long walk would help. Kaal. Although it was reviewed well, I thought it was awful and I was thankful that it was shorter than most Bollywood fare. I got it because the item number I had seen from it was sensational, and that's been a pretty good barometer of how the film's going to be. Not so in this case. The item number I saw was at the very beginning of the film, sort of just in there as an "extra." SRK was not even in the film, just the item number! That was disappointing. And even having the eye candy of John Abraham didn't help this film in any way. It was more of a horror/thriller kind of film - tame by US standards I would think, and just not a good film. The best part about it was the soundtrack, which is fabulous. That opening number (Kaal Dhamaal) and the number over the closing credits (Tauba Tauba) where the best things about the film.

I'm thankful that today I have a DVD of The Tudors, Season One to watch as I nurse this cold. No church lady knitting for me tonight :-(

Drink your fluids and take plenty of naps. I got a case of the sniffles too, but nothing bad enough to keep me home. Hope you feel better soon.

I hope you feel better soon. I had it for a few days and DH had it for a month. Take care of yourself and get LOTS of rest!
