A Quick Post to Prove I'm Alive

What a horrible Fall I have had! First, I hurt my back at work -- nothing serious, but enough to be painful. A couple of months of therapy helped (or maybe just the couple of months), but not much knitting was done.

Just when things were getting back to normal, I started feeling really awful. I was so tired all the time. Seriously, I could sleep for 48 hours, just getting up occasionally for a drink of water and a trip to the bathroom. I went to the doc who took several vials of blood to run tests. A week went by with no word from the doc, so I was beginning to feel like I was crazy and it was all in my head. Finally, the doc called and said he had my test results: I have Epstein-Barr (Mononucleosis). What? Where did that come from? Seriously, I am much older than the normal age group that gets mono, I have not participated in any intimate exchange of saliva with anyone who has mono, where did this come from?

Anyway, I am back working fulltime, but I still get really tired. The doc said it would take 2 to 4 months to get it out of my system. So, still not a lot of knitting taking place.

Oh, and I have been booted off knitting bloggers webring since I have not posted in so long. So today, if anyone is reading this, instead of knitting content, I am giving you my "What Kind of Knitter Are You?" results:

Knitting Purist
You appear to be a Knitting Purist.
You are an accomplished knitter producing beautiful
pieces with a classic feel. You sometimes
lament losing half of your local yarn shop to
garish novelty yarns. Perhaps you consider fun
fur scarves the bane of knitting society and
prefer to steer new knitters towards the wool
and cotton blends. Some might call you a bit of
an elitist but you know that you've been doing
this craft long enough to respect the history
behind it and honor it with beautiful piece
that can last a lifetime.

I have to say, this quiz nailed me cold. This is so me!

Take care of yourselves!!
