Go away yucky germs!

Well, I have had this nasty cold/sorethroat/ yucky stuff for the past few days. It has knocked me for a loop. but I am proud of myself, I actually made myself go to work even though I felt horrible. No one could hear a word I said because I had lost my voice, and as a result of me spreading my germs I bet a bunch of people will have to call out now, but that's their problem! I got in trouble a few weeks ago for calling out sick. So, I made a vow not to ever call out sick and if I go into work throwing up my guts I will not leave! They want me there, I'll go! I'll share my germs, and have half the store called out, but me? I will be there! Basically just venting here that I think my company's policies on calling out a certain number of times within a 6 month period is ludicrous. But, whatever, and moving on...

So, the past few days I have done nothing, but sleep, so no blog reading got done, and no stitching got done either. But today I feel o.k. not completely back to normal, but I am drinking coffee again. (When I am sick I only drink tea, water, or Gatorade)

So, anyway, I have a few hours until I have to head off to work and so I plan on stitching, and trying to catch up a bit with that. I started a small new piece for St. Patty's day. It is the St. Patrick Bear from Liesure Arts 101 Bear personalities. Just something small for the holiday. I am stitching it on 11 count Aida, using three strands of DMC. I have had this horrid piece of 11 count forever and I wanted to use it, and since this is a rather small piece I thought if I used a smaller count aida then the design would appear larger. I hope so. well, I am going to get back to it. It feels good to be back among the living again!

Hope you're feeling better soon! I guess it serves them right if you've now infected all of your coworkers LOL.

Glad to hear your feeling better! I used to work somewhere like that, the motto was, unless you were dead, don't bother calling in sick LOL. I have that book of bears and have only stitched one out of it so far... of course my daughter has lots picked out for me to stitch, someday! Will be watching for your progress/completion on that. Happy stitching!

Sorry to hear you've been so unwell :( Hope you manage to kick those bugs off soon. I'm the same as you - I know when I'm really really sick ... can't face coffee ... yet when I'm 'healthy' I drink about 3 a day ;)
