Whooping Cough and other fun stuff

Are you aware that adults can get Whooping Cough? I sure wasn't. But apparently, that's what I have. So I guess that means that I'll either be staying home from work for the next few days or holing up in a closet somewhere at work where I can't infect the little kidos while the antibiotics go to work. Although I'm pretty good at coughing into my elbow, you may want to cover your mouth while you're here and wash with antibacterial soap when you leave.

In the meantime, Allison, my upstream SP12 pal, nominated me for a little blog award, a highlight of my day. But then again, anything that doesn't involve gasping for a breath, clutching for my overworked lungs, or making the windows rattle in their panes from the coughing, would make my day.
Here are the instructions:
1. Please put the award on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
3. You must nominate at least 4 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.
So let's see here. There are so many blogs that I enjoy. Hopefully I'll pick a few here that haven't received this award yet.

Deb's Going Green has great ideas for those who are looking for living a little greener. She's very creative and has lots of ideas to share.

Good-Natured Ribbing has some must see knits over there! That knitter really has some talent! I always enjoy seeing what she's working on over there.

Knits with Balls gives me hope in the other sex yet. He's creative, good with his hands, and sounds like an all around good catch... now if only I could find myself one like that.

We Do Not Have a Knitting Problem = 100 uses for sock yarn, what's more to love? You'll love her flawless stitches and vibrant taste in colorways.

Reckless Glue will not only give you inspiration for knitting and retro dynamic photography, but she'll also entertain the pants off of you.

Check out any or all of these fine bloggers. I'm sure they would love it if you stopped by. Just don't cough on them and spread this dreadful thing.

Oh my, I unfortunately DO know that adults can get whooping cough. Been there, done that last summer and I know just how you feel. Just make sure you are aware that your respiratory system is knocked back for way longer than you have symptoms (~6 months). Here's hoping 1)you feel better soon and 2) when it goes away, it stays away!

Feel better. Not soon, but NOW. And thanks for some new blogs to check out.

WOW. Take care of yourself. Whooping cough is a big to-do. Take the days off. If not for the whooping cough, but for Socktober Fest. Did I type that outloud? :)
