This afternoon I have a sore throat. I think probably one of the worst pains a person can have is pain in their throat. It makes every aspect of your life a bit more miserable. Breathing becomes painful, as does swallowing, and talking, and god forbid you try to eat anything other than soup. I haven’t had a sore throat since before my thyroidectomy, so I guess I had forgotten what it was like. It sucks. I feel like garbage, and that really ruins the productive Sunday I had planned.
Well, almost. I finished the last set of coasters today, and they are already wildly popular on my Etsy shop. In fact, not even ten minutes after I listed them, they were included in a treasury! I also finished the legwarmers/boot toppers, although I didn’t have the right boots to take pictures in. I’ll probably end up listing them in the next few days. And this morning when I woke up, a friend from Syracuse had posted on my shop’s facebook page asking me to make her a pair of Irish inspired yoga socks, so I bought some yummy green sock yarn from KnitPicks. And finally, I’m determined to finish this latest ruffle scarf today, so I can at least take pictures of it tomorrow after work. If I go to work. I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to pain and sickness these days. I think I’ve earned it.
Which leads me to my next point. I don’t know if any of you know this. Maybe you do if you have read some of my past blog posts, or if you are one of my facebook friends. I’m kind of a sick person. Not sick as in “man, that’s sick”, or sick as in “that dude is sick in the head”, but sick as in I have multiple physical health issues. Maybe some day I’ll write a whole blog entry about them, but I really don’t like talking about it too much. People don’t look at me like I’m a person with illnesses, and I’d rather they didn’t. I’d rather not be defined by my issues. But maybe it would help people understand a little bit better when I get in one of my bitchy, whiny moods? Maybe, who knows. Either way it’s a topic for another day.
