Fighting a Cold...

I don't get sick because I have no time to get sick. But yesterday I awakened with a sore throat that had similarities to hot needles placed in the left side of my throat. Comfortable? NO!


Today, the throat is better, but I have a runny nose and general malaise. Oh, and a small cough at the back of my throat comes out sporadically. *sigh*



I have today and tomorrow off to clean the house, have my studio day, and hopefully get the laundry done. DH said he would vaccuum the kitchen and livingroom tonight when he gets home from work, so that's good. But all I want to do is crawl back into bed and try and sleep this off. I can't indulge in that, although I may allow myself to have a nap for an hour while doing laundry.



I'll be recovered by the time Sharon arrives tomorrow evening, but I hope my energy levels perk back up then also. Right now I don't have a lot :-(
All that thinking about and planning housework has given you a sore throat! That is an excuse I would use anyway lol
Hey...works for me - LOL. Problem is, if I get too sick, I don't even enjoy reading! Horrors!

That works. I came home at 9am and went to bed, slept until 1:15 and then had to get a little computer work done. I'll go back to bed soon. Housework be damned.

I hope you can nap, and wake up feeling better.

*offers gentle hugs and hot tea*
Love the hot tea. It seems to be moving from a head cold to a chest cold *sigh*. I need my own Pip to make me feel better - LOL.

Thanks, sweetie. I'll be OK, I knew I was walking on a knife edge with all I was trying to get done. I'm just going to feel icky for a day or so...

Have you tried Floradix? It is great stuff for when you are a bit down, and lots of iron too.

Hah. yes, he would make a very good (and quite large) hot pad, lol.
That's what I need, a large, cuddly, heating pad...yummy!

I think I'll just go and put the kettle on for another cup of tea. Less exciting, but more attainable :-)

I don't get sick often, and when I do it doesn't last long. But it really sucks when I have a week off to spend with my friend from out of town. The timing could be better...

If you don't enjoy reading, then you must be sick. (That's how I can tell how sick I really am; if I can't read, then I'm sick.) I hope that you feel better soon.

*hugs*

Love the tea with lemon, so essential to feeling better. In fact, I think I'll go and put the kettle back on again right now :-) Thanks so much for the good thoughts.

I thought you seemed to be coming down with something when I read that comment of yours yesterday.
Get well soon!
Thanks, I feel icky, but I'll recover. I just have so darned much that I have to do before tomorrow pm. But...I'll make it work.
