The last week or so has been very difficult. I spent Wednesday afternoon and evening in the hospital, hooked up to IV's and getting a CT scan because I was in doubled-over pain in my abdomen. It had been bothering me since Saturday, but I hadn't paid it much mind until it got unbearable. Turns out I had a kidney infection, requiring antibiotics, pain killers, and bed rest (which I sort of did- mostly). It rendered me to a semi-useless blob until last night, and this morning was my first full day back in action. Have to admit, it worked me out a fair bit. I'm excited to sleep long to recover tonight.
Some good news though- I finished the lovely Seneca sweater!!I haven't had an official photo shoot with it yet, but I have a couple of pictures out and about in it- Tyler and I went for a walk down on the pier yesterday with coffee (I just had hot chocolate- no caffeine while infected- boo!!), and I was able to talk him into taking a picture or two next to our well-known lift-bridge.He didn't really understand the concept of the knitting being the focal point of the picture. Or camera flashes vs. real light. Or mentioning confusion of these things when I said I wanted a "knitting photo shoot"- especially since you can't actually see the knitting. Hmmm. I think I'll need to work on that a bit.
My first draft of my thesis paper is my big project this week, so hopefully I'll be well on the way to having a solid draft done by the end of the week. I was supposed to have it done by last week, but then the whole kidney thing got in the way... well, you know how it goes.
Off to grab more cranberry juice, work through my draft and sleep hard before another full day.
