Eww. Gross.

Hi. I've been a bit under the weather since yesterday - I woke up yesterday morning with a terrible pain in my right heel, and could hardly even walk on it. Apparently, a tiny little blister on my foot (that I only got on Thursday, trekking across campus wearing cute but maybe-not-so-practical maryjanes) is infected. Not in a gross, green-puss-flowing kind of way, but in a painfully swollen, aching, I've-got-a-fever kind of way. I took some Ibuprofen and went to work, and my foot eventually felt mostly better. But in the afternoon, the medicine wore off, and I had a terrible fever, and more swelling. My fever got worse and worse, until it was unbearable, and I went home from work an hour early....and then slept. I slept from 2:00 until 7:30 last night. I ate some dinner (mmm....steak with crimini mushroom sauce), and then went back to sleep until about 8:00 this morning. My fever wasn't so bad today, so maybe the infection's getting better (as I keep slathering it with Neosporin), but I feel terribly weak. I even took a little nap for about an hour today (like I actually needed more sleep?), and just laid in bed reading my books for school today. Needless to say I didn't go to work today. That would have been least for my poor foot. Probably would have had to have it amputated.

Besides reading all day, I actually had some free time to browse Etsy (Oh, how I've missed browsing you, dear Etsy!), and have been trying to snag a Treasury all day, but with no luck. What's up with that? Its so frustrating!

In my browsing today, I decided that I really really love Matt Cipov's work, and I think maybe Chris would really like it too. I'm going to show him some of the stuff and see his reaction, because I'm thinking that might be a good Christmas gift.....he does love zombies, after all.

(I'm actually more a fan of his deep-sea dwellers, and owls, and unicorns.... not so much the zombies. But they're nice, too.)

On the store-front, I have a few new projects I'm currently working on... firstly, a kind of strange concept for a drawing I dreamt up the other day on my way to work at like 6:00 in the morning. I sketched it out today... I like it. I showed it to my mom, and she was like, "Uhh.... I don't get it. What's 'baroque'?" All I'll say is, if you know what Baroque (as in the Baroque Period...musical, art, etc.), you might like my new design. I do, anyway. Even if its a bit different from my usual stuff.

Umm....I guess that's about it. Sorry if I seem a bit foggy and uninteresting.... I think I might go back to sleep in a little while. I'm supposed to work at 6:30 tomorrow morning..... hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow and will be able to go. I can't afford to miss so much work!

Goodnight, everyone, and happy Sunday!

Oh! And if you didn't already, wish all of the grandparents you know a happy Grandparents' Day today!
