Laid up

In the wee morning hours on Thursday, I woke up to a pain in my belly. A few hours later, my husband was driving me to the ER. A full 12 hours after I arrived at the ER (seriously, that's how long I had to wait), I was wheeled off to surgery to have my appendix removed.

Now that I have all the free time in the world, I'm wondering if I should use this time to A) rest and recuperate, or B) work on promoting my Etsy shop and this blog. That's my real problem in life; I just can't sit still. I always have to be doing something, even if it's something trivial. I can't just watch TV. I have to be folding laundry or crocheting at the same time.

I wonder if this is because I'm a crafter or because I'm a woman. Hmm....

I have an update on the Neem oil, too! I received it in the mail a little less than a week ago, and my squash are doing really well now! They're not completely healed yet, but they're doing so much better. It's almost like magic. I will say that although the powdery mildew is going away, they're getting a dark kind of fungus. But since Neem is a general fungicide, I just sprayed them again and it will probably go away. Yay!

So there's a update on my life. I'm working on a series of blog entries about how to reuse everyday trash, and make it into something that's actually useful. I want to post these things once a week. I was thinking about posting on Monday and then calling it Makeover Monday, but that sounds kind of cheesy. If I can think of something better, I'll let you know, otherwise it'll probably be on Mondays.

But since I'm still feeling mostly crappy, I think I'll end this now and get back to watching TV and crocheting at the same time.

I hope you feel better. Glad to hear that you are okay. Stomach pain can be really scary.

By the way, I like to make jewelry while I watch T.V. (I too, have trouble sitting still.) It's a great idea to work on some blog entries...since that doesn't require standing up and walking around. I usually type up my blogs a few days in advance - in batches (sometimes 3-4 at a time.) Then, during the week all I have to do is paste one into blogger each day :)

Thanks, Juliann! I'm already starting to feel better, so I don't think hubby will have to continue doing the housework for long (unfortunately!).

I like your idea of doing blog posts in batches, actually. That would work really well for me, since I usually have bursts of inspiration with lots of nothing in between. I'll give it a try :)

I'm the same way about tv - I usually draw.
