Sick, yet again...when does it end?????



Gosh, I feel about as sick as this pumpkin. Yet another cold has arrived, and the Advil Cold & Sinus ain't touchin' it this time folks.

I probably will sleep sitting up, maybe even here by the computer-I mean, it IS next to my bed and all, so if I kind of bend that way I could end up on my bed. Darn it, why did I leave my Vicks Vapor Rub at work on my desk? Even though I spent most of the day shoving that up my nose, which usually works at declogging those nostrils, this time it was not working.

I am thinking of doing a Puking Pumpkin this Halloween. I have seen several pics of them on the net, and with the way I feel, it certainly would fit in. Deja wants to do a puking pumpkin too, don't ask why-she just thinks it's cool. So next weekend we will pick out some pumpkins and have fun with carving and roasting the seeds...

In the meantime, its more OTC meds for me, rest, plenty of fluids and dealing with congestion-ugh. At least I can't smell the skunk odor which is still lingering in the basement, lol. But even that has faded thank goodness. Jose brought home all kinds of refill cans for the automatic sprayers we have in several rooms he found them on clearance someplace and figured we needed them.

So here I am miserable as heck, wondering when this will end. I mean, it just seems like a couple days ago I was sick with a cold. But actually it was a few weeks ago. The weather here has been nuts though, warm and then cold. No one knows how to dress, you are either too darn hot or freezing. Ok, off to read some more blogs and then get some much needed R & R. Wishing everyone a great weekend!
