Well HELLO there bloggie world! Whew! It's SOOOO nice to be back in the
saddle again, I can't even tell you.
This has been ME for the past week...completely out of commission. Don't know where it came from but it hit my like a MACK TRUCK! The very DAY the blog hop ended. What is up with that? Was I exhausted? I didn't think so. And let me tell you, of ALL times of the year to be sick, THIS is so NOT the time! I will also admit, I am the WORST sick person in the world. Only because I get SO impatient....all this sitting around in bed and sleeping and stupid nose blowing....when there's so MUCH to be DONE! And the worst of it was, it just hurt to keep my eyes open, so I couldn't read, was too tired to facebook and tweet....all I could do was watch mindless shows on TV and even THAT made me mad because I was too tired to STITCH!
Is it just me? Or are you this way too when you're sick?
And I thought my HUBBY was bad.
FINALLY...I'd had enough, and no OTC drugs were obviously working, so I went to the doc (or, uh, RN at CVS!) and got some REAL drugs. Thank goodness!
So I'm on the mend and trying to pick up where I left off, because, HOLY COW....we've got another RADIO SHOW to do today!
(good thing I got my voice back...)
That's RIGHT! We're hosting Pat Sloan's Creative Talk Radio again! Click here, to listen in LIVE at 4 PM EST. And if you happen to miss it live, go to the SAME link to download the podcast later. Just WAIT until you see who we're talking to today...a couple of CRAZY quilty gals! Not sure if you caught our updates from Market back in November, but the two quilter's on the show today were part of our "4H club". We'll tell ya all about it on the show, but for now, check out Pat's blog for, yet another embarrassing picture of us AND an intro to our guests!
I think we'll send Pat some GOOD pics of us for Christmas. I tell ya, she just captures us at our best...
