Just Me Feeling Sickly

Hello -

Thank you guys for all the pink eye suggestions. Last night Nicholas surprised us when he calmy lay down on his bed, and let his daddy put drops in his eyes. I guess it's not as scary as he once thought it was. Afterwards he sat up and gave his daddy a big hug. Awww... He is getting better, but he has a cough and stuffy nose-he isn't ready for school yet. May be tommorow.

It is true. Nyquil medicine tastes like a Christmas tree! Eeeww. I am officially sick. My throat is throbbing, my nose is stuffed up, and I basically feel "yucky". Mix that all with cramps (ain't it "swell" being a woman?) I'm basically look like crap. Oh well. I woke up all hot and sweaty and actually took a cold shower and let it progressively get warmer, and warmer--that felt sooo good. I think that Nyquil worked on me pretty well, but the taste for God's sake! It's just plain horrible!! At least I don't have pink eye yet---Missie.. I'm won't be surprised if it eventually happens. Sigh.

I'm at work with piles in front of me that I must conquer. I'm alone today, with the music playing, and I better make the most of it!

I am WAY BEHIND on my journal reading. I'm SORRY!!! I will try and get to them all soon! I want to thank you for the advice about putting pictures on my sidebar as well. Great suggestions-I just haven't had the time to actually try it! I miss comment alerts, and entry alerts.... Don't you?

Take care, and don't get sick! It really sucks!

Can you believe this is an actual article from the 30's?

I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick. I hope you get to feeling better soon and that you got a lot done today at work. Hope the pink eye is all gone now. I can remember struggling to get Eler Beth to take her drops -- not fun!

Sorry you've been sick hon, along with the rest of the family. I have no fricking idea what a christmas tree taste like, I do however know how nasty Nyquil is. I can't take the stuff without a gag reaction. Hope the weekend finds you relaxed and better. (Hugs)Indigo

I miss the alerts as well. When I go to google reader to catch up there's always over 100 entries to catch up on and it's a bit overwhelming. At least with the alerts you could immediately respond and they didn't pile up.

By the way, check out my playlist, I added "Girl from Ipanema" (the orginal) with Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astrud Gilberto (in Portuguese and English).
