Oh I'm sorry you are feeling so microbially bad. You make it sound so tolerable, but I know it wasn't like that.


Julia isn't knitting? She must REALLY be sick.

So glad you're on the mend. Love and kisses.


Boy, it seems like everyone's getting a Rebel these days--I'm so jealous! But, really, since you're so sick, I'd say you deserve it. Glad you're feeling well enough to type the post! Hope you feel even better soon.


Wow, You really got it bad. My daughter has it now (tail end I think). Her number was pretty high according to the nurse who called 2 weeks after the blood was taken, but she really didn't seem that sick. Apparently everyone reacts differently regardless of the numbers.
Glad you're feeling better.


I am so glad to read that you are on the mend. You can never guess what will be the hit with kids, but it always seems to be the least expensive things that they love -- my husband and I were just talking about Hanukkah and commenting that my son loves his hole punch the most of all the gifts. And my friend reported that her son loves the ruler in his stocking. Enjoy the new toys!


glad you're on the mend!


Yikes, you really were down and out with mono. I'm glad that you are on the mend and feeling better. Congrats on the new digital camera. It sounds like hubby did a great job for the holiday.


Oh, ACK. Who were you kissing to give you that dreaded virus? My nephew is just getting over it, too. Bad. Baddddddddd. I'm so glad you're starting to feel better, but I know it won't come fast.


Really, haven't you grown out of the "necking in the car with boys" phase yet?

Glad you are feeling better.

Bummer. I hate being sick for the holidays—it used to happen to me every year without fail (flu, bronchitis, you name it). What are you going to do with the Concertina? What a cool gift! Hope you feel better soon.


Oh jeez. You are SUCH a trouper and massively deserved that concertina. Beautiful. Glad you're feeling like you can sit up again!!


I had Mono at the ripe old age of 24. I was mortified. First the intern/resident at the emergency room wouldn't come anywhere near me for fear of catching it. Then I had to call the guy I was seeing (he was 34) and tell him I was sick and would be for sometime (we broke up)and then I had to tell work and they all snickered (said that's what I got for kissing and "old" man). Anyway, remember it takes a long time to get over mono, sit and knit and let yourself be cared for.

Sorry to hear you've been so wretched. It takes an age to recover (as you well know) so don't go rushing about when you think you can. My mother has only just worked out why we include Olaf with Cupid and Dancer and the rest, although she didn't actually work it out, we had to tell her.


Feel better. I can't imagine being incapacitated for even two days, much less two weeks or more, especially at this time of year. Mono is not fun.


Being sick for Christmas is the worst! Hope that you feel better soon.


Glad you're feeling better, Julia!


Yuck - mono's tough enough without getting slammed for the holidays. I'm glad you're on the mend and hope you have some wonderful knitting, shutterbugging and concertina-ing times.


Ugh. Mono blows. I'm so glad to read that you're on the mend. I love your concertina! What a wonderful gift. Stay well, and have a wonderful new year's.


How awful to feel so crappy when there's so much to be done! I'm glad you're on the mend.


Hope you are feeling better soon, will brandy help?


When you do sick, you sure do it all the way. And I totally didn't know you could get mono twice. Looking forward to new camera pix!


well i'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. ugh. you poor thing being so sick for so long.


Glad you're feeling better. The exact same junky monster-truck was a huge hit here as well - who knew?


Oh no, not Mono! That's awful. I had it when I was 14 (along with a bout of hepatitus at the same time), I am certain I didn't leave the bed for a month. I want you to know that I knit the viking hat for Christmas in your stead - it came out bigger than I expected - like much bigger - and it's for my soon to be born grandson. Oh and I am so envious of your Christmas gift from the hubs. I have been pining for a squeezebox for years and my husband thinks it's a joke. It's not, I even started doing research on all the different kinds that are available, trying to choose one that would be good for someone who has never played an instrument, but feels the music in her soul. Take good care of yourself and have a spendid new year!


I did the gift-card thing a bit too this year, and very little knitting, and I didn't even have an excuse. says there is no such word as breviloquent. Luckily (I knew those two years of Latin would come in handy someday) I managed to figure out what it meant anyway. If you can use a word like that, you must be feeling better. I'm glad.
