Cold, Cold, Go Away, Again

I'm much better now, but unfortunately The Old Man has caught my cold.  At least he doesn't have the coughing like I had, but he's been sneezing non-stop since yesterday.  And being the stubborn Old Man that he is, he won't take anything for it. Believe me when I tell you I'd gladly take the cold away from him and have it all over again.

Pray for me, America.

Back In Action

I'm very happy to say I'm about 75% back in action today.  I still feel very tired, but have been able to bust a move at work and at home tonight painting.  

There's a lot I would like to write about tonight, but it's something that's really close to my heart, so I think I'll be able to talk about it tomorrow.

Back Among The Living, Sort Of

I feel like I'm back among the living today, sort of.  I had a fairly decent night's sleep, and only woke myself up one time coughing, so that was pretty good.  And I only had two major coughing attacks today, one at work late afternoon and one about an hour ago, so that's much improved.  I still feel tired, but I am on the mend.  I actually felt good enough to do some much-needed painting tonight on some of our quilt block pictures.  I'm hoping for an even more active day tomorrow.

Seriously - Cold, Cold, Go Away

On top of having this nasty cold, last night I caught a very wicked stomach bug. Today, I look like a character from any of the "Living Dead" movies - just about every blood vessel in my face and eyes have burst from throwing up so much last night.  Sorry, I know that's gross, but it happened.  

As quickly as the stomach issues came, they left, and I was able to eat a nice warm bowl of oatmeal this morning with no problems.  I haven't been coughing as much as yesterday, and I've gone through about half a box of Kleenax blowing my nose.  Once again, I know that's gross, but there's really only one way to get rid of head congestion.  

At least I'm able to watch my two favorite NFL teams play today while I lay on the couch.  Go Titans, and Go Pats, and Go Away Cold.

Cold, Cold, Go Away . . . And I Don't Mean The Temperature

Unfortunately, sometime in the last three days I've developed a nasty cold, complete with an annoying hacking cough and head congestion.  All I did today was either lay in bed or on the couch.  And it's not even 10:00 and I'm getting ready to officially go to bed.  I'm hoping to feel more lifelike tomorrow.  Stay tuned.

Pre-Winter Report

I saw my first pair of quasi-Ugg Boots today.  The high was upper 50's.  So to the Ugg Boot wearer, it was cold enough to get her Ugg Boots out and wear them.  Good for her.  As for me, when I got home today the furnace was on. I immediately turned off the vents in my room as fast as I could, in hopes that it would cool down before bedtime.  

I'm not giving into winter this early.  This means no fires in the fireplace, no Ugg Boots or anything resembling, and I am going to wear my shorts until I freeze.What are people going to do when it really gets cold, as in the 20's or low 30's?

So Happy It's Thursday

As I type this, my head is ready to split open like a ripe melon, and my throat feels like I've swallowed some razor blades.  I coughed all day long, and I'm sure I royally annoyed all of my coworkers who heard me hacking all day.  I've got my pajamas on, and just took some cough meds, and I'm getting ready to get in bed and hope for a cough-free day tomorrow.
