Leaves on this Family Tree

H*A*C*K . . . .

Hacking has become my new bestest friend . . . well maybe not friend,but for the oast three days it has accompanied me wherever I have gone.

While at the nephews wedding, the brother had a really rotten cough and cold. When we left, I didn't feel anything,s o had hoped I hadn't gotten it.

But, alas, art he week at home wen ton, the throat started that aching feeling  that normally means a cold is on it's way . . . and,TA-DA . . . it made it two days ago.

Talk about a fun time in bed! Ever since the back has started to hurt, this time around, when I want to turn over in bed I  have to grad hold of the top of the bed (to turn onto my right side) or grab the edge of the headboard to turn on my left side.So, here I am, not being able to just turn over . . or sit up with ease . . . and I have to cough. Laying down on the back doesn't work well to cough . . .  and trying to turn over is a process, and takes too long if I need to cough.

So, the last three nights have been rough . . . and then, I have been sleeping a couple of hours during the day because I'm exhausted from coughing in my sleep . . . or waking up to cough.

Today, the husband was "harrassing" me because I kept closing my eyes . . . I woke up with such a bad headache that it helped when I closed them, and if I slept alittle, lucky me!

The coughing has subsided, the phlegm isn't being produced as readily, but the back is still hurting.As a matter of fact, it hurts worse than it has hurt in a month or so. I think that comes from one of the PT exercises that I started friday to stretch the ham strings.I think I'll pass it this next week and hope the cough is on it's way out.

So, I shall leave you with a roll of toilet paper,since I never have Klenex,and ask . . "Which of you posted the pattern to make a crochet  "tissue box cover" for a roll of toilet paper?"


  1. Sorry to hear you are sick... I am just about over my cold/allergies. Hope you start to feel better soon... I sure know how exhausting those cough filled nights can be!

  2. Oh honey - ((hugs)) I hope you are feeling better soon!

    Eat some chicken noodle soup and take a couple of asprin!

  3. Hope you feel better soon. I think it was Tammy of Coffee n' Crafts who posted the Granny Tissue Topper: http://coffeencrafts.blogspot.com/2011/03/scrap-granny-toilet-tissue-cover.html

    Tina was right, the toilet paper tissue cover is here. I split it into 3 parts so I could read it all.
