Crazy as a Loom

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

The show must go on....

Or something.
We are working hard to have all the stock we want for the upcoming events, but I feel like I am not doing my fair share.  I am operating in the midst of a fog.
Every morning I wake up and lie very still, hoping that my headache is gone.
I wait for the day.  It's gonna be RED LETTER.
Just sayin'.
I am not going to whine about it, I'm even sick of hearing myself mention it.  How bad is that?

Anyway, here is a roll of rugs hot off the loom that L is weaving on.


And here is my 'stack in progress'............I know, I better get busy.


Sweet Bottoms!!!!
I love the ends of them all stacked up.



I left the studio early, again.  I am such a slacker.  I had a few errands to run, and wanted to visit my cousin in the hospital, and well, you know.......I felt like crap.

My cousin has been to the ER many times in the last few months, with no resolution.  He has felt awful, looked awful, and was even disoriented and confused.  This morning, in the ER again, his heart stopped beating, twice, and he started seizing.  As horrible as that all sounds, at least there was a doctor leaning over him at the very moment it happened.
When I saw him in the recovery room this afternoon, with a brand new pacemaker installed, he looked  like his old self, and when I said I came to kick his butt, he laughed, and said, that finally, he felt like himself.
Gratitude comes in all sizes.  When you least expect it.  Mostly it comes when you need it.

What headache?

You STILL have that headache?? Time to take some action, speak to your doctor. This has gone on far too long.

That's great news about your cousin getting the pacemaker. My husband worked for Medtronic in Tempe, AZ and wrote the test programs that test the parts that go into their pacemakers.. awesome eh?

I can only mimic everyone else...please go and bug your doctor about your headache. You should not be suffering with it this long.
Glad to hear that your cousin is better. Good ol' pacemakers...did my dad a world of good!
Love your colors! Still loving my "Rainbow Bottom"!!!

OMG, you are so insanely busy. What do you think retirement will look like for you?

Valerie said...

So sorry that the headache continues. Just wondering...do you wear a dust mask when messing with the loopers, etc. Do you think that the dust/lint/ etc. could be a contributing factor?

Headaches are horrific, you have my deepest sympathy .. Toonman has had a cold/stuff nose/runny nose/cough on/off now for months and his doctor insists its allergies .. sigh

LOL, I have to agree with Country Girl.

Welcome to my world.
