I hate being sick!

So, in my last post, I mentioned that I was feeling a little under the weather. Well, since the point, it's been more than a little. I was hit HARD by a very bad virus that left me with a fever of 102. Not fun! So, between the body aches, and the chills, and the coughing - I haven't been able to do any knitting - zip, zilch, nada. All I've been able to do is focus on sleeping and watching bad tv to pass the time.

I'm feeling a little better today - my temperature dipped slightly below normal for the first time. So, I think I'm out of the worst of it - which is a good thing because I had an advising day today and classes start tomorrow! It's just that this virus was such bad timing - there was so much that I needed to get done in the few days before classes started - but instead, I was stuck.

So, yesterday I was feeling pretty lousy - until - I got a surprise box in the mail! From my Secret 8 Pal!!! I opened it to find a wrapped box with a card:
How festive!!!

I opened up the wrapping and look what I found!:

On the left, a birthday card (my birthday is on Thursday!). Not just any birthday card - but probably one of the BEST birthday cards I've ever received because when you open the card, the "Chicken Dance" song starts playing. Let me tell you, I was feeling so sick yesterday that it was exactly what I needed to cheer me up - I just burst out laughing when I heard that music!! Too funny!

Then, on the right, a bottle of cabernet chocolate sauce!!!! It's supposed to be used with desserts - on ice cream, poundcake, strawberries, etc. This looks so awesome!!! I can't wait to try it!

So, thank you again, secret pal!! This was such a surprise!! I was not expecting to receive anything like this - I am truly spoiled!!! What am I going to do when this month is over, and I don't have you as a secret pal anymore??!!!

Before I close for today, I just thought I'd leave you with possibly the cutest picture of Sam and Frodo EVER!!

Happy Belated Birthday. And I second the chocolate sauce, strawberries and ice cream cure for too many microbes hanging around. Take it with plenty of vitamin C and you can't go wrong.

The kitties are resting? Amazing they aren't up eating all your yarn. Hope you feel better by now as this is five days later!

seeing your kittens makes me smile--we had two very similar, Lucy (as in I love) and Gracie (as in Burns) that could have been dead ringers for Sam and Frodo. Gracie is gone now (We are not sure where exactly) but Lu-lu is here and crazy as ever. Hope you are feeling better!
