Thank God for Puffs Plus with Lotion

Oh dear me. Y'all. This cold is kicking my ass.

I've gotten through the "throat so sore I can not swallow" phase and the "sneezing every three seconds" phase, and the "I'm hot, no I'm cold, no I'm hot..." phase, but now I can't seem to get out of the "coughing so hard I nearly barf" phase

*hack hack*

excuse me

I'm running out of recorded things to watch on tv and commercials?!?! Nooooooo!!!

I'm sick of doing laundry. It seems like laundry and blowing my nose are the only two things I've done in a week.

I think Rat is getting tired of me being too dizzy and snotty to do anything.

Speak of the devil, there's the laundry timer thingy now. I would sigh, but it would make me cough.

Does anyone have a sure fire cough remedy?

Anything else to write about? Umm. No. Okay then. I'll be back when the threat of my hacking up snot on my keyboard is downgraded from Red to Orange.

*hack hack*

Believe it or not, vicks on the throat will often work. Other than that, sorry. Get well soon!

I told you not to come visit because we were sick!!
I'm so sorry :-( I haven't gotten to the horrible coughing phase yet, but John is right in the middle of it :-(

Hot tea with honey. Kinda melts the snot out of your head and the honey coats your sore throat.

Doc told me lots of liquids so it doesn't get all congested in there and give you an infection. Otherwise, rest and Tylenol.

I've progressed into the "everything tastes like cardboard, effectively removing my appetite completely, thus leaving my stomach empty and nauseated" phase. It's a dangerous pairing with the "cough till you vomit" phase.

Are you still dying? I am!
