Half not bad, or not half bad

During Spinzilla last year, I spun 7370 yards. This year I spun 3688 yards. That’s just 3 yards more than half of last year’s total. I would be totally bummed out, but I’m having problems with my left ulnar nerve*, so my left pinky and ring finger are both numb and painful (yeah, you’d think …

Not in the Plans

After putting it off for over a year, I finally made an appointment for an eye exam. I have no idea why I kept putting it off, but I was getting tired of things being blurry so I finally made the call. I had my exam Friday. See that dark spot? That is a shadow. …

Anemia is a bitch

I found out why I’m so tired all the time. I’m anemic. I started taking iron supplements about a month ago, and they’ve helped a lot, but I’m still tired. I’ve gone from feeling completely exhausted all of the time (fatigue level: recovering from pneumonia) to feeling kind of ok-ish until I try to do …

TNNA recap

  I intended to write about TNNA a few days after getting home. Instead I have been so exhausted I’ve been taking naps every day and still haven’t done half the things I was going to. This is what happens when I’m sick for six weeks with two viruses and then just start to recover …

Teeth: a sale

No, I’m not selling teeth. That would be weird. Ew. I’m writing this because my sweet bunny Roxanne is at the vet recovering from surgery. She had to have some of her teeth trimmed, and several teeth removed because they were infected at the roots. The infection was so bad, it had gone up into …

Ibuprofen and Wool

Usually on Thanksgiving Day I post a list of things I’m grateful for. I missed it this year. It’s not that I’m ungrateful. I’m grateful for many things. But it was hard to focus on anything except my back pain. It’s been aching for the past month. Wednesday, after realizing I’d been saying “if it …

I’m not quite dead

I’m getting better. I’m still coughing, but I’m not coughing as hard as I was yesterday, when I was half expecting to see large solid objects pop out of my mouth as I coughed. Weasels. Alarm clocks. Refrigerators.* So when all I coughed up was a teaspoon of phlegm, I felt kind of cheated. I …

Valentine’s Day Sale and Spinner’s Flock Fleece Fair

Have you all got the cold from hell that I’m just getting over? Dude. For two weeks, all I had the energy to do was sleep and produce snot. Fortunately I’m starting to feel better, so I have the energy to do things like get dressed and write blog posts. So, now that I can …

It’s been 10 years since I’ve driven a car

combed top for fiber expo

Usually in my time-impaired obliviousness, I’m pretty fuzzy about what the date is. I just had a vague idea that it was late October. And I knew Fiber Expo was coming up this weekend, because I’ve been dyeing up a ton of yarn and fiber to get ready. (Here’s some of the fiber I’ve been …

I’m not quite dead

I was finally well enough today to mail club shipments. Thanks for your patience. I’m still not over this nasty thing that may be bronchitis or may be pneumonia. (My doctor said it could be either one and she would treat them the same, and since the only way to tell for sure which one …
