Supposed to be sleeping

The doctor gave me cough syrup with codeine in it with the intention that it would probably make me unconscious which would force me to rest. He said 1 teaspoon probably won't even make you groggy, but 2 and you'll probably have to sleep. I've been taking about a teaspoon and a half so I can sleep if I need to, but I don't want to take more, because it's really disorienting to wake up from a medicine induced fog.

However, I've had walking pneumonia before and I'm smart enough to know that blogging is about the most strenuous thing I should be doing. I plan on watching some movies and working on some patterns for Crochet Pages if I'm not sleeping. I might work on Nibbler some more, but I'm a little stumped on his wacky eyesockets. Shallow sockets with big gaping eyes. His eyes actually come out past the side of his head a little.

I'm a little worried that I'm going to have to postpone our hike, again. The last time I had walking pneumonia I was sick for a couple of months. I had gotten sick in early December, and it was like Spring before I finally felt back to normal. This doesn't seem to be quite as bad as last time, but it will probably be weeks before I'm not winded sooner than normal. *sigh* I guess the plus side is that I'll have to work on website and pattern stuff.

This is a sign that you should REST. :-p I would have tried to call last night, but Lisa said you were going to take some medicine and then "go play dead," so I figured I'd let you try to. We go to check out the house today, I'll let you know how that goes. I'm off at 12.
