Dimensional changes may occur

I was shopping for a new bathroom rug (the small kind that you put down in front of the tub) and reading care labels to make sure I could machine wash whichever one I purchased. I laughed out loud when I read, "Machine wash cold; Dry Flat. Dimensional changes may occur." OH! -- this thing is going to shrink! Too funny. Or, perhaps too sad -- do they think that they are pulling one over on the consumer? Can't anyone just be honest anymore?

Oh well. I'm in the midst of doing battle with a very ferocious head cold that's trying to turn into pneumonia. I've completely lost my voice and can only keep myself upright a few hours a day. I've still had to go in to work because it's been so busy; I feel terrible about having to give school tours in a hoarse whisper (and the coughing attack just as one family was leaving this morning was quite mortifying, but I think they still liked the school). Apparently the rabies vaccinations so over-taxed my immune system that I was an easy target for some nasty bug. I know I'll get through this but it's a little hard to see the light at the moment.

And Christmas. What about Christmas gift-making as a year-round activity? I look at my half-finished project from January and hope I can make amends this summer.

Please do take care of yourself, Jennifer! Don't want you getting sicker....As for the year round Christmas crafting, I'm afraid I'm in the same boat. Perhaps pulling out some Christmas music after we all get settled into summer will inspire us again. ;) Feel better soon!

I finished my first gift last week...

And as for the rug, I'm wondering if it might shift into another dimension, like the twilight zone, if you wash it...
It might be worth it just to see that happen.
