I haven't really been feeling well all this week, and today, it just all caught up with me. I tried to get up and go to work. I really did.

I got dressed, put on my makeup, even ate breakfast. But when I was standing in the bathroom trying to brush my teeth, and actually started crying because I just felt so bad, I knew it was time to take a day off.

So I did. I went back to bed for a little while, then spent the rest of the day reading, watching Netflixes and knitting. I didn't even get that much knitting done, though I did finish the Monkey Socks.

And yes, the one on the left does look significantly lighter than the one on the right.  In fact, it looks old and faded.  I don't know why it turned out that way.  I'm hoping it's just dusty, and that washing them will fix that.  I tried to cast on the next pair, which is the Cables and Lace pattern from Wendy D. Johnson's Socks From The Toe Up book, but I just couldn't figure out the cast-on. That's how I know I'm still not quite right.  I've done that very same cast-on a gajillion times, but this time I couldn't make it work. 

You wanna know how badly I've felt this week?  I got a bunch of new Cowboys swag that I've had since Tuesday, and I haven't even told you about.

Not the Jason Witten action figure --to go with the DeMarcus Ware and Terrell Owens I already have.

Nor the two new pairs of earrings, which were on sale at half price, just in case I lose another one.

Or the two star decals, one of which is going on Jimmy's back window, in the opposite corner from my True Blue sticker.

Or the 50th anniversary cap, here modeled by Charlotte.

She's so accommodating.

I was going to tell you about the details.  The patch on the front.

and the lettering on the back

and the brim

And I was going to tell you how my shelf is getting mighty full, and that I'm going to need to expand my shrine here pretty quick.

But I just haven't felt like it.

Want to know how bad I really feel? This bad:

I'm about to skip Bones and go to bed.

Yea. That bad.
