Thirsty Thursday anyone?

I don't know about all of you, but I am super thirsty. Even though they have me on a 24-hour drip, I am still drinking water like a fish. Sadly, I have yet to sleep with my eyes open. Other than that, and since I know everyone is anxiously awaiting my daily updates, yes, I am still in the hospital. I'd say maybe tomorrow I'll go home, but I have been saying that for the past week. So maybe not tomorrow. Ooh, reverse psychology! I am running out of things with which to amuse myself. I'm leaning towards bringing back Popsicle-stick art. Eh, but then I'd have to deal with the glue, and there's always the problem of what do you do with the inevitable five or six sticks left over. Do you throw them out? Can you perhaps make a small chimney for your little house? Do you use them to flip things at whomever may be sitting across from you? I'm going to go with the latter. I am also going to stop mindlessly blabbing on, as much as it amuses me.

The only other thing is that I have a nasty cold, for real this time. It's fun because when I inhale through my mouth, I can hear/feel the phlegm rattling around in my chest. Mmm, phlegm. My doctors aren't too concerned about it though, and I haven't gotten a fever, so I am not infected with anything either. I guess I just need to wait this out. In the meantime, I'll be yelling at my left nostril. It is blocked, completely. It's actually really annoying and not the least bit amusing. But oh well. That's all for tonight. Tune in next time to find out, "Where in the world is... Caroline San Diego." I'm betting on a hospital bed at the University of Chicago. Keep fingers crossed for a surprise! Pax.

So, today my sister sent me an email that was very cute and full of misspellings, and at the end she wrote, "How is Andy and Catherine?"

I am not sure if she meant you or Katie or the collective cheating unit that makes up Andy and his secret love Catherine, but I just thought I'd let you know that I've been having a good time trying to figure that one out. Also, my sister might want to know how you're doing.

PS: My popsicle art was the bomb. I used to make these little rectangular stadiums and call them picture frames and make my mom ruin perfectly good snapshots by gluing them to the back of my overwrought architectural fantasies.

Hi Caroline, I just got caught up on your blog. I will be keeping up with it from here out. This saturday is the big kick off for the Team in Training season. Let me know if you want any info on whats going on with that. I will definitely keep you posted about the training. If you’re in Chicago on October 7th you should come.

Another note...I was in the hospital when I was little for a while (don't really remember how long it was) but i used to make those woven pot holders. You know those? With the plastic square loom and the circle stretchy things. I have no idea what to call them...
