Sick Day

After having stayed home Wednesday with a lousy headache-congestion-chills-exhaustion type of cold, I managed to drag myself in to school yesterday. Felt a bit out of it all day, and had to put up with constant comments about my raw, red nose. Up late last night because I couldn't really breathe and felt feverish.

This morning, the headache was back, and I still can't breathe that well, so I stayed home. If I indeed have what my co-librarian had (has), the rumor is that I'll have this for two weeks. Nooooo!!! I am especially bummed out because the snowstorm's arrival will prevent me from getting over the bridge to the chiropractor, and I think that she probably could help knock this stupid cold out.

Sometimes you just have to work with what you've got. I've got cold medicine, orange juice, and lotion tissues. That's going to have to do.

Just wish I could convince The Cat to empty the dishwasher and take out the trash for me.

I know, this post is no fun. If my head feels better tomorrow, I'll post about what I've been reading lately. In the meantime, do make sure you read last night's post and join the discussion.

Yeah, get better soon. I hope that storm doesn't smack Philly too hard.

Cats are so very resistant to helping out, aren't they? Claiming that not having hands prevents them from lending a helping hand is a pretty thin excuse in my opinion.

I hope you feel better soon, and good luck with the snow!

Amy--thank you! Doing a little better today. :)

Dave--thanks. . . we got dumped on pretty good. I didn't venture out today but I think I will tomorrow.

CCR--I keep telling the Cat she _does_ have thumbs, but she just won't try. Thanks for the well wishes.
