Can’t flu me

Headed off for bed last night, to find–the plumbing, oh no…

We own a small plumber’s snake and thankfully it was enough for the job. It was past 1:15 am when I went to go turn on the last load of towels for the night. I turned the dial back around when I woke up–high heat again. Bleach. (And my kids know I never, ever leave a load in the washer overnight. But there are worse things.)

Which is why I did not get my flu shot at the medical center’s walk-in shot clinic this morning before a contractor came over to give us an estimate in the afternoon. It just was not the first thing on my mind.

The last time I didn’t get a flu shot I ended up with four months of double pneumonia and permanent lung damage, so, not just for me: go get yourself vaccinated if you haven’t yet.

Costco sells them for $15. Time flexible. I’ll be there.

(Edited later to add, after making myself sit down to knit after writing about the plumbing.) I finished it! Happy dance, happy dance! Took more frogging and leap after leap into the unknown, but I finished the friend’s daughter’s scarf and it is beautiful and flattering and unique and I knew the color was perfect but now I know the pattern is perfect–I was making it up as I went along (or unmaking it)–and oh, this came out just right. That makes up for twenty-two hours ago, definitely! Oh, I can’t wait till she gets it!

Hooray for a happy ending!

I have to figure out how to get my flu shot Thursday evening at the same time I have a League board meeting… 20 miles apart.

Do not put your Flu shot off,go get it. I was fortunate that my hubby’s company paid for the flu shot, they have now for several years.Flu season is arriving early.

I get my flu shot every year.
I think you get a bigger kick out of the knitted gifts you give than the recipients.

Just did a long read to catch up on so many adorable photos (including that one of Bryan and friend). I’m glad to know you are well, and that your knitting is, too.
