Never get your wisdom teeth taken out during flu season.
Oh, and make sure you don't have hidden adverse reactions to the pain killers they give you.
I was knocked on my ass for the better part of three weeks, and my brain is still trying to catch up. No progress on the thesis, but there's been a teensy bit of movement on two of the projects therein.
Fortunately, I can knit when my brain shuts down. Hub's socks are done, and he's been wearing then for good luck while he writes his own thesis. I also finished Sock #1 of my beautiful Crusoes, and I'm about, say, 65% finished the second one. I even went out and bought some yarn to make socks for my mom.
So, it hasn't been a totally wasted month.
Once hubby passes his thesis in, then I have to write. Write like there's no tomorrow, because I want the bulk of it done before I go home for the holidays. Maybe I'll let myself knit during mealtimes . . .
