First off, I want to thank everyone for all the well wishes you sent my way after my last post. After a pretty crazy and sleep-deprived weekend, I was starting to feel a lot better the last day or so. I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for this afternoon, and I made a last-minute decision not to cancel just in case my issue was something other than a pinched nerve. Well, I'm seriously glad I went in, because it turns out I have a herniated disk in my neck. Which means I get to wear a stylish neck brace for a while, eat a few packs of steriods, and give up sewing for about 6 weeks. Yeah, you read that last part right. It looks like things will be pretty quiet around here for the next month or two :(
I don't mind the neck brace or the steriods, because the brace reminds me of an Ernest character called Auntie Nelda, which makes me giggle...
But the no-sewing-for-6-weeks thing is a real bummer. And Ray's instituted marshall law. I went to go get something out of my sewing room, and he'd actually locked the door on me! That varmint. I can't say I blame him though, because I'm a bit of a pistol and stubborn as a mule - after 6 years of marriage, he's sure got my number ;)
But back to the giggling, because that part is more fun. Ever since I saw this V-neck sweater in Purl Soho's latest email blast, I can't stop laughing to myself.
Why? Well, because all I could think about after I saw it was this HILARIOUS Saturday Night Live skit featuring Ben Stiller and Andy Sanberg. Seriously...you need to watch it!
