The week started out with me having a tickling in my throat on Sunday, I was bringing in the near year and trying to just will away that sore throat, but I felt it a bit while working on Sunday and then Monday I felt it too. By Monday night, I was coughing and I was filled with this:
I did not feel good at all….I didn’t sleep well. I spent Tuesday in bed, taking cold and sinus meds, dozing some, reading some. These became my best friend:
Oh good lord have you tried these? They are the Cool Touch Kleenex, I’m receiving nothing for this raving endorsement, but they are remarkable. A tissue cool on your sore nose, cushy and soft, oh so wonderful.
Caitie left Tuesday mid morning to return to UNF, she was home for nearly a month, and I loved having her home, but it was time for her to go back. Adrienne and Nick went shopping so I did have a quiet house.
I slept worse on Tuesday night and missed yet another day of work on Wednesday, two days out. Does anyone really want your book seller or cashier to be hacking, sneezing, blowing her nose and sharing her germs? I didn’t think so. Wednesday was almost worse….I nearly ran out of the magic tissues, and sent hubby for more, plus mucinex d, also no plug, but the meds work.
I slept better Wednesday night and woke feeling human, and though I rested most of the day Thursday I felt better.
So now my weekend is open, and I’m feeling a little better. My other daughter Adrienne leaves Sunday to go back to school. Nick returns to school on Monday, after a too too long winter break.
After the return of all kids to school it will start to feel like life is back to some normalcy.
My winter is full of short trips to see my parents in TX. One next weekend, one in Feb and one in March. My dad’s recovering from a stroke and a fall, he’s in rehab,but it’s just very hard. I need to be there more to support both my folks as he recovers.
Here’s to the Weekend….it’s got to be better! I’m hoping you all enjoy some down time, some time to relax and recoup.
