Crazy, Lazy Weekend

Ugh, why can't I ever have a couple days to just relax?!?!?

Just before lunch on Friday, my husband called and told me he was on his way to the ER with "really terrible stomach pains." When I didn't hear from him again, I called down to the hospital around 2 -- thinking by then he'd be in a room, right? WRONG. I didn't get any real answers until about 5:30, when he finally called me as they were discharging him. Have I mentioned that hospitals suck? Yeah. As for what was wrong with him....he got hit by a really nasty flu bug. And after 6 hours in a triage room with nothing to drink, he was weak and completely dehydrated. When he got home, he pretty much passed out in his recliner. I ran to the grocery store for "sick groceries," and poured Gatorade down his throat whenever he was conscious enough to swallow. He's better now, but it was definitely a weekend to sit around the house and do nothing....

...so I stitched. And I stitched and I stitched. Because stitching is silent and non-intrusive to sleeping sick people. First I worked on the Mermaids.
And then I pulled this teddy bear kit out of the work basket. I can't decide if I really LIKE this little guy, but I hate to toss it at this point. It could make a cute pillow to give as a gift....I have plenty of friends who are still having kids, and it never hurts to have potential baby gifts on hand...

Sorry your husband isn't feeling well, hope he's on the mend.

Great progress on Mermaids and I think Teddy is adorable

Very nicely done on the progress. I'm sorry your DH was ill, I hope he recovers quickly.
