I Am Sick And Tired...
Of being sick and tired.
I have had this cold to one degree or another since the beginning of November. (Including a stint of pinkeye.) Right now I'm in the cough-up-a-lung portion of our program. I'm living on Robitussin and Halls and I' reeeeeaaaallllly tired of having to cross my legs when I cough.
I can't sleep properly because of the coughing and I can't lie down during the day because I have little girls. (Who have also had the cold off and on.)
The floor is ankle deep in toys and Cheerios because I don't have the energy to keep up.
Today is laundry day as I am wearing my last long sleeve tee shirt. If I don't wash, tomorrow my choices would be short sleeves or special occasion blouses.
Roper's got it now, too.
Tip of the day: Buy stock in Puffs.

I have declared that if this year doesn't improve for me healthwise that I'd better hibernate in a soft cave away from sharp objects, hot objects, and people with germs. So I hear you! *hug* I hope you feel better soon.

I totally empathize. I, too, feel as though I have been ill forever, and just when I start to feel a tidge better, the next wave of yuck hits.

Working at a boarding school really incubates every last germ. Last Friday, we had a snow day. Checking with the other teachers, it was a darn good thing we did, or we might have been investigated for staging a "sick out," so many of us were going to call in!

We love Puffs Plus with lotion, to soothe the sore noses. I also put Blistex on under my nose. The menthol helps with the breathing a bit, and the lotion helps keep the redness lower.

Ugh! I hope things get better soon.

On the bright side, winter's over a third over.
