Wet and Messy Friday


No new starts for me just yet and the reason will become apparent on into the post. I promised myself that I would not start another big stitch until I had finished at least one of the two big pieces currently in progress. I know what I want my next biggie to be. Now, can I really hold off?

I wish I could say that it looked like it would be another not so eventful weekend. Several family members have been sick, including Harold. It started out yesterday morning when he woke me up while getting ready for work and told me he was dizzy and had a fever so I told him to call in and stay home sick. He had bouts of fever and chills all day but around 3:30 in the afternoon, he began having breathing problems and they only got worse as the day progressed. By 9pm I was begging him to let me call an ambulance (as you remember we did this same thing several months ago and for the same reason). My pleas and watchful eye were only making him more aggitated thus making his problem worse so I went on to bed knowing he would come for me if needed. Sure enough, about midnight he came in and woke me from my very light sleep and I called the ambulance. We were in ER until the wee morning hours before they decided to keep him overnight and sent me on home. I got a needed (but hardly enough) several hours sleep. I will know sometime today whether they are letting him come home or keeping him another day. Depending on today, the doctor even said that Harold may need to take some time off from work. All I know is that it will take me the remainder of the weekend to catch up on my rest just from yeterday's broo-ha-ha.

I will leave you with a close up of AAFG in progress. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by. Until next time may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Oh Sherry! How scary that must have been! What is it about men and insisting they're ok -- my husband did the same thing until I ended up dragging him to the ER against his will this past summer. I hope Harold is ok and gets better quickly. Prayers for him and for you are on their way! Get some rest too.

Men!!!! When they get a triffling cold it is like the world is ending, but when they get real ill, they never ever listen or admit it!
I hope you get some rest soon and well done on the stitching.

Men are stubborn! I've been having rounds with my BF about him taking care of himself better. I do hope that Harold gets better soon. So scary that he had to go to the emergency.

That is scary. I hope that Harold is soon better and that your life is able to get back to normal. I love your AAFG. It has always been a favourite of mine.
