Code in my dose

That's how it sounds if I say "cold in my nose" right now. My head is stuffy, my eyes want to close constantly, and I have a hacking cough.

And all this waited to happen until we actually have a few sunny days. Figures.

I was in denial when my throat got scratchy. I remained in denial as I chugged vitamin C and Airborne and heard my voice change, fade, and come back again. But then I woke up with the stuffy nose, sinuses, and head and could no longer deny that I do indeed have a cold.

Ugh! Given the stuffiness of my head, it's hard to concentrate on anything for very long, so not much is happening here, either with knitting or transcribing -- both of which are providing me with lots to do at the moment. This is most frustrating.

Nothing to do but ride it out, though. So I'm typing a bit, knitting a bit, and napping a lot, all the while chugging orange juice in between in the hope that this bug, or whatever it is, runs its course quickly.

We'll see.

You know -- I've always been a little suspicious of Vitamin C's ability to fight or prevent colds. And Vicks is running commercials were the lady who takes lots and lots of C gets ill -- so they give her something Vicks with C. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Mom says a hot beverage with a visit from either of her friends Johnny (Walker) or Jim (Beam) go a long way towards feeling better. I hope you kick this crud soon.

Oh, I don't think vitamin C will cure anything. It just makes me feel a bit better.

As for the Johnny Walker or Jim Beam (I prefer Makers Mark or Crown Royal), yeah, that makes me feel loads better, but it also makes me sleepier. And since I do need to get some work and knitting done, it's not an option. Drat! :)

Thanks for the good wishes!

We missed you tonight at Haggen's!

Feel better, colds are an awful thing to suffer through.
