Since you like pics, I decided to post a pic of the finished Bascom who you saw in an earlier post before he was done. I forgot to do it after I finished him.
I have been working and working and working...and it's been sort of like the "Gotta make the donuts" guy and the energizer bunny all rolled into one. R had been gone for three days, and I had been downstairs working on my special piece for the show, and he was due to get home. So I grabbed some mohair to cut while I was upstairs on the next piece. Then I thought of a couple more bear related things I wanted to get done and I was running in a circle trying to figure out what to do first. I realized I was on over drive and terribly stressed and I hadn't had a day off in ages. So I forced myself to stop and decided that I was going to take Thursday off. No work at all.
I called and made an appointment for a massage and made a shopping list. It was hard to not be in bear mode, but I was ready. You know what they say about the best laid plans...
Yesterday I woke up with cramping and a terrible pain in my side. I waited for it to pass and it didn't. So I called and cancelled my massage. By mid afternoon I told R I was going to call the doctor. The doctor recommended I go to the ER. R rushed home to take me. Poor guy, he has taken me to the ER far too many times over the years.
It's a good thing we went though, I had an intestinal obstruction. So after a stop at Walgreens to get the required meds, I had a brutal night. BRUTAL! In fact the fun is still continuing.
I got my day off, but I wouldn't recommend it as a good method to anyone else! Hopefully I will feel better later...and when I do, I am just going to go back to work!
