The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy. It seemed like an uphill battle all the way. Little did I know I was sick. In my last post I mentioned that I was painting the family room and kitchen and I was so tired but just kept going. In the mean time there was a visit from my family and a trip to Disney. My cousin's son Derek tried out at Hollywood studios American Idol and won the finale on his second try. He is now the proud owner of the golden ticket that gets you to the front of the line at any American Idol audition.. So proud!!
Yes we have started our rainy season here in Florida and with that comes some really pretty sunsets. As you can see in the picture below... progress has been slow on my socks, but I am now up to the heal on sock #2 and right now I'm am home sick this week and hope to finish them. My hand has been hurting and I thought what I had was poison ivy on my wrist. The other day at work my hand was still hurting so bad I went to the ER after work to see if I had somehow fractured it. It turns out that I have shingles.. which would be the reason my hand hurt so bad and there is a rash on my wrist. I was wondering why I was also experiencing the sensation like I was wearing itchy wool all the time. That is a pretty accurate description of the prickly itchy feeling. I didn't realize how hard I was pushing myself and ignoring my fatigue and pain. Now I am paying for it. Two days of rest has helped a little. I think the pain in my hand will go away eventually as will the prickling sensations. As for the rest of this week... I will be resting and knitting slowly and taking lots of hand resting breaks.
