Yesterday I went shopping.
Is that a big deal?
I think so -- considering that at the beginning of the week I couldn't walk; I couldn't sit, and I couldn't lay down without being in sheer, absolute pain.
So, I went shopping. It was a necessity. (But don't all women say that?) No, really it was!
I put together a list of materials I'll need for the classes I'll be taking at the upcoming Conference after looking through my rather extensive stash and decided there were a few things I had to have. No, really, I'm not kidding!
So with my husband as my chauffeur, and my "Bead Team" as my shopping assistants, out we went.
I had to get some items for the Freeform Crocheted Dolls class I'll be taking with Noreen Crone-Findlay ... mostly some charms, beads, safety pins, decorative papers, ribbon, yarn, and such. Oh, did I say yarn? I needed it. No, really, I'm not kidding.
I had to get knitting needles. No, really, I'm not kidding. Size 7 needles attached to a 16" cord, in any material except for aluminum, for the Simple Knitting for Complicated Crocheters class I'll be taking with Kathleen Power Johnson. (I was to have gotten size 5 too, but this will have to do!) Which reminds me, I need to work up my swatches for this class!
Then after shopping for supplies, I needed a few things from Kohls. No, really, I'm not kidding. (I like that they took care of me, offering me an additional 15% discount on my purchase, as this translates to more $$ to spend at the Conference!)
The end results, with all kidding aside, is that I got the bulk of the items I needed, and I'm now paying the price. I stayed out too late, too long, and I've had a minor setback. I'm being iced, and am considering if Advil will help, or if I should take one of the prescribed meds. No, really, I'm not kidding.
I shouldn't have pressed my luck. It's going to be interesting to see how I survive the wonderful events at the Conference ...
Mental note to self: don't over do it again!!!
