The Apocalyptic Invasion

Yesterday I awoke a 4 a.m., uneasy. Half a second later I realized: Whoa!! Sick! BF has it too: his started just a few hours after mine. So far, we've skipped both versions of the 'flu, either version A or version Swine, which rage on around us at work, on public transportation, in the grocery store line, causing us to consider friends and neighbors as carriers, but this stomach thing has embraced us in its greasy arms. Ugh. It's not completely debilitating, but it certainly is depleting; I was able to stop briefly at the mall yesterday afternoon to do an errand, but I held my breath and scurried past the food court. Why, oh why, put a Wendy's and a Chik fil A across the aisle from each other in an enclosed, badly ventilated space? And I stopped to pick up something I'd ordered at the lighting store across from my LNS, so I dropped in for a quick visit but was too tired to pick up the two cute Christmas designs I briefly considered. One was Just Nan's Christmas ribbons (came with the beads), and the other was a Christmas sheep thing. I didn't need them anyway, but too tired to shop for needlework? Definitely sick.
Just Nan:


Post Halloween, since we still have lots of candy around: when I visted In Stitches last time, they gave me this freebie by The Cricket Collection. This is the finished model in the store, and while you normally stitch the "Kisses" tag, someone at the shop had inserted a paper tag. It's stitched in DMC and Kreinik braid. I love the expression on the little frog's face.


More on Sarah:


Elvis suggests taking to bed with a book; here he's working his way through The Apocalpytic Invasion, which is somehow appropriate.


Happy, healthy week ahead!

Ugh! I hope you're both feeling better soon! I'm totally nervous about H1N1 hitting us. I'm hoping it will spare us at least for this week -- with my daughter home from college and my son scheduled for his big concert this Thursday which is a can't miss thing. Love your Sarah! And the freebie is pretty cute and funny! Feel better!

Sorry you and BF are feeling so badly. The stomach bug is so not fun. I love that hershey kiss with the paper tag. Such a cute idea. I think I have that freebie around here somewhere. Sarah is looking so great!!! :)
Hope you are feeling better.

Oh, I hope you feel better soon, Glenna! There are lots of different things going around!

ps I woke in the middle of night thinking I had some stomach thing too but it went away. Now I think I will just stay home and rest (aka Stitch!)

Hope you feel better soon! Take lots of Vit. D3, you can take up to 50,000 mg when you are sick. It really helps.

Theresa said...

I hope you will get well soon!!!!! It's kind of scary with all kinds of flu floating around right now.

Darling freebie, are you planning to stitch it? I really like the paper tag insert. Good excuse to buy Kisses!

Oh, so sorry to hear you are sick! I've been sanitizing door knobs and cleaning like crazy this weekend. I hope we can avoid it long enough to take vacation!
I really hope you get better soon. When you are too sick to buy needlework, then you are definitely sick!
Take Care.

Keep it there!

So you get this nice big bottle of red wine and get in bed and stick your big toe out of the covers. Drink wine until you can't see your toe. When you wake up .... cured!

The bunns will take care of you...

Oh my! I hope you're feeling better soon, Glenna! Sarah is gorgeous! BTW, I missed your post about furniture shopping in Richmond - next time I go home I'll have to check it out - maybe we could meet for lunch?! It's been a long time since I graduated from VCU, and lived in that area but I LOVE it!

Oh no... I hope you feel better really really soon, Glenna! :( It has been going around so badly this year, hasn't it? Sarah is just gorgeous!

Brigitte said...

I hope that you and your BF already feel a lot better than a couple days ago.
That freebie lokks very cute. I have it, too but would never had thought that it looks like this. Sometimes you have to see the things stitched.
