Quick and easy

My friend, Lisa, made these super cute shorts for her daughter, so I though Mollie could use some too!

I made them using some Stenzo rose print knit and a Stella knit waistband.

These shorts are really easy and fast to put together.  They'd make a good beginner project for sewing knit fabrics.

On a more serious note I have been diagnosed with whooping cough.  More accurately my self diagnosis was confirmed with lab results even though my doctor was skeptical. Anyway, smarty pants me was right, but really I wish I wasn't.  My doctor also thought my need for antiobiotics was borderline.  Yet again, I don't think I agree with her choice, but now it's a moot point because if I started the antibiotics tomorrow, I would be past the 3 week mark.   So right now I am trying to avoid people while I go about my life.  

So when you wish me well and hope that I get better soon.  I won't be better soon.  Whooping cough is also known as the 100 day cough.  Hopefully the hardcore whooping cough episodes will pass in a couple weeks, but I will be coughing for weeks.   The only positive is that I feel okay when I'm not coughing, but let's just say waking up the middle of the night and coughing uncontrollably then gasping for air IS NOT FUN.

If people vaccinated their children for whooping cough, the rest of the population might hope to avoid it ...

There's got to be a silver lining doesn't there? :)

Coughing may use two to three calories per cough, depending on your individual metabolism and body make up.
The amount of calories that your body uses during coughing is measured by how extreme your cough is, as well as its duration.If you have a deep, body-racking cough, you could expect to be at the top of your calorie burning scale.
