Yep, I've had to take a few days off from crochet to give my sore elbow a rest. I can afford a few days without a hook before my next deadline. Instead, I'm making submissions, making sketches, getting all my crochet "business" stuff done, you know, all that tedious end of the year stuff. I set up my bookkeeping for 2009, wrote out my 2009 goals, reported on my 2008 goals, etc.
I might even do something around the house... (LOL) like take the holiday decorations down....it's time.
