From Sally — Sometimes Bigger is Better

Filed under: Back Story — surly @ 9:21 am

I’m back in our nation’s capital, finally feeling well enough to drink some coffee without flinching.

I wanted to give a public shout out to my big sister, who took such good care of me while I was in Minnesota. She handled my luggage, dropped me off everywhere we went while she parked (to protect my fragile system from the cold), cooked bland foods for me, and basically waited on me hand and foot. I couldn’t have survived the first day or so of the trip without her nursing care.

It was such a wonderful event — I wish I had felt more able to enjoy it. I met so many wonderful people, and if I seemed a bit “unsocial” I hope you will all understand.

Thank you again to my big sister!


  1. Take good care of yourself now, okay?

  2. Weird. I, too, can’t drink coffee when sick! I’m just now getting over a cold to the point where I like coffee again. I wonder what’s up with that.

  3. Glad you got to go on your visit and happy to hear that Susan took good care of you. There’s nothing like family. Take care of yourself!

  4. I hope you feel better soon. Aren’t sister’s wonderful, I have three and adore my relationship with them although I’m the only knitter in the family!

  5. I felt so bad for you, Sally. Maybe you could come back another weekend and we can all treat you like royalty and enjoy the sweaters one more time, too.
