Trifecta of misery

Right now, I am dealing with
- Seeing The Blue Screen Of Death every time I turn on my new laptop
- Pain in my right arm due to a prolapsed disc in my neck*
- The Gambler being out of town until the end of next week

Poor me
This neck collar wasn't able to provide adequate traction, so now I intemittently hook myself up to a contraption that involves pulleys and straps and a bag that contains 20 lbs of water. The cats find it quite fascinating.

I am very tempted to buy myself some yarn from Indigodragonfly.

Or maybe I'll just spread the word about her offerings so that no yarn will remain by the time I make a selection...

* Rest assured that I can still knit (what else am I supposed to do while I'm sitting in the traction device?) Luckily I have not lost any strength or coordination; I just have to deal with a constant aching pain in my forearm and numbness in my index and middle fingers.

Oh, you poor thing. I hope both luck and healing come your way!

Yikes! I hope you recover quickly, though I do like the idea of forced knitting time...

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear you are all laid up. And also very sorry about the BSOD, there is nothing worse to add to misery.

I am considering a Toronto jaunt either Wed or Thurs...if you're mobile or up for other non-mobile company be sure to let me know!

(PS if I was in your trifecta I would probably not be able to resist the yarn retail therapy. You are strong.)

Wish I could help you out with the yarn thing - ToadKill and Marshee - look like MY colours! But I really should diversify ;-)

Oh, ugh. Hubby's had to do the bag-o-water traction thingy, too. Here's hoping it helps you quickly!

Yes, knit on and hopefully buy some yarn during blue screen intervals.

It is a good summer look though! LOL
Hope it heals quickly. You must be off work then. Please tell me it is not your holidays!

Oh OW! I hope you recover quickly. That doesn't look comfortable at all! =(

OUCH! Hope you are better soon. OUCH, OUCH!

It almost looks like the cats are holding you hostage.

"Send tuna or she gets it!!!"

Hope you feel better soon!

What happened???

Ouch! Do you have someone to do grocery shopping for you? I would imagine leaving the house would be quite painful.

I had the same laptop issue only a few months after I bought my Toshiba laptop. Your warranty will most likely cover the laptop repair. You'll probably get a new motherboard. The good news was that the repair didn't delete any of my files. Good luck!

Ouch! Did you have an accident, or was it just one of those random disk slippage things?

Hang in there.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
