Better than a patch!

Well... I've actually spent a lot of time crocheting lately. Trying to come up with the perfect hat for my friend's granddaughter. One that is not too big for her...LOL! I haven't crocheted in a long time.....and that was dolls. Cute dolls. I made 14 million (seemed like it anyway) of those while I spent time on bedrest. I made one a couple of years ago for a Christmas party. Other than that one, I hadn't made one in about 25 years. It sure helps me NOT smoke. That's good, right? Ahhhhh what a vice. Anyways, I have found this to be quite relaxing so, I think I'll get back into it!

The Good Old Flu

Well....I got the flu shot (not my idea....they made me at work). I have had it 2 times before. 11 yrs and 10 yrs ago. Both times, I got the flu. They say you cannot get the flu from it because it is a dead virus. Funny thing, I haven't had the flu in 10 yrs....since the last flu shot. So this year, I got the flu shot and guess what! I got the flu which in turn, progressed to pneumonia. I do not think people should be forced to have something they don't want. OK....well.....not exactly forced. Kind of coerced. If you didn't get the shot, you had to wear a mask for you entire shift for 6 months. I can barely get through a c-section with a mask on (an hour or so)! However, if they do this again next year, I think I'll choose the mask!
