Linda @ Painted Whyte December 11, 2010

Well its been a really hard week.  Last Friday night at about 3am my tummy started to hurt and then it was a trip to the bathroom every 30 min - i'll leave out the gory details and just say that i really wished i would have splurged on the really soft toilet paper.  Then lucky me at 9am i started puking my guts out, it was not a pretty sight let me tell you!   I was supposed to go to my work Xmas party that day but that didn't happen.  I had to work the next day and that was touch and go and by midnight that night i was puking AGAIN aacchh. I swear i have lost at least 10 pounds.  Then Monday was still really week, Tuesday i had to work and that was still really hard - i haven't really eaten much since last Friday than hurray Wedn i woke up with a nasty cold and a fever and i have not left the house since Tuesday i think.  Tomorrow i am going to try to be brave and go to the Butterdome Craft Sale - wish me luck!

I have a couple of finished pieces i need to show you but haven't pictured most of them yet but to tide you over for a couple of days (i've been such a bad blogger) here is the before and after of my stereo cabinet i found on kijiji.  It is now my TV stand at my place.

This is the picture that was advertised on kijiji - i think i paid $20

Just need to organize all those cables lol  boy they look bad dont they?

Linda, the stereo cabinet looks fantastic!!! So sorry you're feeling like crap :( Lil' Red has had the EXACT same thing only hers started with a cold and ended with the bathroom trips. I stayed home today with the cold but i'm hoping that's where it stops with me!! Hope you are back to normal soon!!! I miss reading your blog ;)

Hi Linda, sorry to hear you've been unwell! Those types of bugs are the worst, they really knock you around. Hope you are on the mend really soon.

The stereo cabinet looks amazing! It looks so much better as your tv stand! Great job. Looking forward to reading more soon, have missed reading your blog :)

I love your stereo cabinet/turned TV stand. I repurposed a dresser as a TV stand. It is much better than a large TV cabinet.

I hope you are feeling better now. It sucks to be sick especially when trying to work when all you want to do is crawl into bed.

Take care
