…and not from my ego. 😉 This cold has thoroughly whipped me. I spent the weekend mostly curled up under a blanket on the couch. Was feeling a bit better yesterday. Even took a short walk outside with Trent (it was mid-60s and gorgeous!). I had to go really slow as I just don’t have much energy, but it was so nice to get out and move as well as enjoy the warm sunshine.
Overnight it slammed me again though and I called in sick to work which is something I hate to do. Just puts me more behind. But, being congested, achy and having chills (I’ve been wearing 2 layers in this mid-60s temps!), I felt it best to give my body another day of rest. And, I’m still feeling blah. *fingers crossed* I’ll be well enough to go into work tomorrow.
I had hoped to get my creative juices flowing over the weekend and work on my various scrapping projects. Between the cold and meds zapping my energy, I just didn’t feel up to it. Today I confess I did spend a few hours watching various design shows on HGTV and TLC. I don’t recall the last time I did that. Trading Spaces was an obsession of mine years ago. I was hooked on the first season. Somewhere around the time Paige Davis left as host, I quit watching. Well, when I saw a preview on Saturday for the season premiere with Paige back, I set the DVR. Watched it today and was thrilled to see the show is back. Sooo much better that the last few seasons [well, what I’ve seen of them 😉 ].
Here’s a layout I created in 2002. I was such a huge fan of the show, I made sure to be at the Southern Ideal Home Show that September for an opportunity to meet one of the designers, Vern Yip.
