WE Interrupt This Blog.....


..... and all projects begun around here as of last Fri.  This chief project coordinator and blog author has developed a case of sinusitis that has been remedied by a trip to the ER with prescribed antibiotics and meds for congestion.   The good Doc. says she may be out of commission for a few days.

NOT what I wanted to hear but after spending two days in bed with cold packs and pain medications that were not working, the thought that getting some meds that might put me out of my misery was goodness to my aching ear!

So until the huge white horse pills I was prescribed start taking effect, the painting, new flooring, and stacks of stuff I don't know what to do with, work in the studio, etc. will be in my thoughts.

We did make a little progress in the living room before sinusitis showed up!  Dave painted the ceiling, I got the first coat on the mantle wall and hauled all my priceless treasures to other areas of the house.  So now it sits.  Man, that really bugs me.  But I'm trying to behave myself and count my blessings the pain has gone down enough to write a short post!

We have decided on the  middle sample of laminate flooring to put down in the living room.  So even without the help of the chief project coordinator I think the officer for heavy labor and laminate layer may carry on. He has also been awarded the prize for  best husband who sits in ER with you for over two hours waiting to see a Dr. while watching Harry Potter on the t.v. in a crowded waiting room.  Did I mention he hates Harry Potter?   


Will try to keep you posted on how things are going!

I did see that Kim is celebrating a two year blogiversary over on her blog Millie's Mats with a great give-away of a hooked mat!  Congrats to her on all that hard work as she updates her blog almost daily while caregiving and all the other duties of running a household and working to boot!  Go wish her good things!

  2. P.S. Those treasures you moved out of the room are right up my alley!

  3. So hard to have the wings clipped with projects underway! I hope you feel better very soon. Nothing worse than sinus and ear pain. I love what you're doing in the living room. It looks great so far. Maybe it's time to get that great hubby of yours to fix you a cool, slushy, frozen drinky-poo!
    Sending you healing thoughts!!

  4. Wooly hugs and good wishes for a speady recovery!
    Nothing worse than being sick...
    I love you new flooring...Can't wait to do ours...but this year has brought many outdoor maintainence issues...so the floors have dropped down on the list yet again!
    Rest well...L

  5. Fingers crossed the antibiotics work their magic quickly. Being sick always sucks, but being sick in the summertime is even worse.

  6. Cathy ~
    Here's hoping the meds kick in soon and you are feeling like yourself again. I look forward to seeing more of your living room project. Looks great so far!
    Pug hugs :)

  7. I know how sucky a summer cold can be. I hope you beat it quickly. The room is looking great and I think the new flooring will look perfect. Rest up and let hubby take over for a few days.

  8. Big bummer! I'm sorry you're so sick. Glad you got some meds, better living through chemistry, and all that stuff. Feel better soon! PS I like the flooring sample a lot, it's going to look great.

  9. I feel your pain Cathy. No....I literally do! I went to a minute clinic today with a sinus infection. Hope you feel better soon.

  10. So sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Hopefully the drugs will get you back on your feet quicKly. Your remodeling project looks like it will be beautiful when done. I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress.

  11. Oh, NO!!! The Project Coordinator out of commission!!!
    I hope the sinusitis is on the way out the door. What a time to get sick! Summer when it's hard to breathe from the heat and right in the middle of a major remodeling campaign.

    Please get better soon. Zip and I are sending our best healing thoughts your way!

  17. So sorry to hear you're feeling bad. Sinusitis is a tough one. Take it easy. Your laminate flooring choice is perfect. It'll look great in that room. I hope the officer for heavy labor and laminate layer carries on. I've got mine working on the yard right now. Thank goodness we have the help in a time of need. Feel better soon.
