In the Immortal Words of Cap'n Ahab "She Breeches"





I swear...I feel like I have been sick for 3 months...but alas it has only (and I say that word LOOSELY) been a week today! This thing has gut punched me with both feet while slapping my sinues till their senseless ! WOW...strange illness.... but...this morning I feel about 20% better , by weeks end I am hoping for 80%. Of course my dear Richard is still suffering (he is a day or so behind me in symptoms...they say misery loves company but right now with the way we feel I think we both need to stay far away from each other... we always know where the other is by the trail of dropped Kleenex balls and lozenge wrappers .... I have consumed so much hot tea and juice I am floating and if I see another bowl of soup ...I am takin someone 'out' ...


I must add that I have never been a great patient...I get ornery and cranky and stomp around a lot... and poor Richard is feeling so funky he can't move quick enough to get out of my way...




I just want to feel well again...and get back to my life...work is piling up and falling over... My focus is shot and December starts tomorrow...HEEEEEELP!!!


TV is our best friend as it is the only thing we have strength to do... pretty sad picture I can tell you... I did buy all seven Seasons of 'The West Wing' so we have been watching that non stop ...go ahead...ask me a question, any question...I am now a West Wing Geek!


Great Show....




So I just wanted to check in and say howdy and let everyone know that we are still alive (barely) and missin Bloglandia... I need to do some serious reading and catch up...




Hope everyone had a super Thanksgiving ... Thanks so much for your well wishes...say, could I get one of you out there in Bloglandia to sculpt me a New Head...this old one is Shot!!




Hugs to All

Welcome back !!! I hope your bug will leave you free in no time since it has already done such disaster. I shall not say drink a lot or your teeth will start floating inside your mouth. Take it easy when you'll come back to work. Hugs Rosanna

Jodi, sorry you and Richard are still sick :( HOpefully you guys will spring back to life soon! I am not sure the miniatures world can make it much longer without you guys work! Hugs - Ara

Ditto, sounds like you are on the mend, we had a strange cold earlier this year that really wiped us out also, it lasted for about a week, almost sounds like the same thing, and for about three days, i was not sure if i was going to make it. My husband suffered through and toughed it out at work.

LOTs of strange viruses and bugs out there.

Liquids and rest are the only thing that really helps... at least you have something to entertain you whilst you are recovering!

PoOR BABiEs...

Jodi sending you and Richard get well energy. I know how much that can suck. As for the new head. I would love to, but I don't think you want to look like one of my goblins. Hope you get well real soon.

Hi Ara...

Great big Hugs and Thanks for such kind words... I can't tell you how I am 'itching' to get back to work on something small..I surely will only have time for one miniature before Christmas...so I have to use my wish in choosing what it will be...hmmmmmmm any ideas?

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

So true Joanna...this does sound the same and I am finding out just now that soooo many have had this same thing... lasting 1-3 weeks UGH UGH UGH!!! We are at about 75% I am guessing....each day a different stage...
Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Debbie... Thank You so much for your well wishes...How are you doing my friend....? I think of you often and always send large bushels of Well Wishes and Healthy Thoughts your way..

Hugs

Creager Studios said...

Oh Wendy...is this the same thing you had.... OH DEAR, I now know truly what you went through...misery and great discomfort....so glad you made it over the wall...gives me strength to do the same...

Hi Julie...

OoOOo I like that...'full of Beans!!!' that is a perfect description of how I normally feel ... or as my grannie use to say "Bright Eyed and Bushy tailed"
Thanks for the Well Wishes...
Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

OH NO CASEY....DON't GET SICK!!! I seriousily DON'T recommend it....
Do the liquid thing (a lot) rest when you can and stay out of public...the only god thing with this bug...it seems to change daily and does not last to long before you know you are on the mend...mending takes a bit of time... Hot water, steeped in ginger with honey and lemon saved my life...and marriage!!

Hugs and Be Well
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Cody...Thank You so much for the well wishes... as for a Goblin Head...hmmmmm might be a fun new look, to my knowledge, have never been a goblin ..might be a whole new direction!!

Hugs,
Jodi

Georgina said...

You poor guys, I feel your pain, frustration, crankiness, etc. My hubby and I had the H1N1 together recently and I was so ugly, when I wasn't sleeping!! LOL

Just hang in there and remember, one of the best cures for these nasty virus' is contempt...a big honkin' dose of it!!!

Creager Studios said...

Hi Georgina...
Wise words indeed....I will follow your lead and stand up to those Nasty Viruses . WOW you both had the H1N1 ...YIKES...so happy all is now well...

Thanks and Big Hugs
Jodi
