:( hope u feel better, Toinena.

If u want to know, as far as over-the-counter painkillers (without a prescriptiion) there is:

aspirin
ibuprofen (motrin, advil)
acetaminophen (tylenol)
and naproxen (aleve)

be very careful not to take more acetaminophen than directed because it can cause liver failure.

For headaches, what works best for me is excedrin (aspirin, caffeine and acetaminophen)

I just realized that these might go by totally different names in your country. :(

Well your lucky Linx ;), as a kid and when I went to public school the teacher got sick of me doing math problems in my head, so when I didn't show my work she would keep me in for lunch, and sometimes after school. When my parents found out, all I know is my parents did yell at her (weird but true) then that's how I became homeschooled.

No problem, Zero. I have stock up on painkillers, heartburn pills (the American diet really tortured my stomach) and band aids (why did I buy that???? I guess I will get use of them one day) when I was over there. So I have excederin. It also helps me to wake up. Oh man! How many hours left until weekend???

That cloak would be a viable alternative, in a dark grey. I'm not much for french fripperies like ruffles.

Hey Everyone,

I thought you might want to see a picture of what you've all been helping me "build." :)

This pair of shorts is what I call my "working protocol" -- as in, I made this as a first try and now I know what other changes I want to make, and so your calculations have been helping me plan for my next rendition.

Alongside the shorts are the two patterns I've been combining to make them. Although I need to start with a pattern, I very rarely like that patterns as they are and almost always make modifications.

Viola, I think it was you that mentioned that pattern envelopes tell you how much fabric you need on the back--this is true, but ONLY if you're following the pattern exactly, which I almost never do (this is why I asked people to SHOW me how to do the conversions, so I can do them for myself next time.)

For instance, neither short pattern has pockets, and I put pockets on both the front and the back, so I had to account for a bit more extra fabric.

Thank you all so much for your help, and I'll see you again when I start my next project. ;)
