I haven't been feeling well the past few days..I can't seem to shake this cold. I woke up today feverish again, and I stayed in bed till lunchtime. Consequently, I don't have much to talk about.
I have heard from Lucky. She is doing MUCH better, and thanks to a very well known computer company over charging her and screwing up, she phoned this morning to tell me that she was offered some free electronics. My sister being the wonderful person that she is, phoned me and asked if the kids still wanted ipods. Uh, yeah! Hell yeah! So, she is working on it as I sit here typing. Really, how lucky am I to have her for a sister?
Skippymom has her boy home now, and even though she sounds tired, she also sounds blissfully happy! It feels great to be spreading some good news instead of dwelling on negative crap.
That's it, that's all I have. My head is spinning again, and I think that I'm going to go lay down.
Later........................

Skiipy - I felt fine last night, and you didn't yak my ear off! I just woke up this morning and it felt like someone kicked me in the head...No worries, it's just a head cold. Call me anytime....Is my very important letter in the mail? Tell my little buddy that I'm waiting eagerly!

Marni - It's just a cold that I can't seem to shake. I'll be back to my old self in no time!

Feel better! When my wife was sick I made her drink tea with lemon and honey. It always helps a sore throat. Drunk Punk's idea isn't bad either though.

There is some seriously bad shit going around this season. Debilitating shit. I've had a chest cold for 10 days!!!! I haven't slept thru the night in 4 days. I'm exhausted, grumpy and short tempered. The only thing that will help is a free Ipod ;)

Drunk Punk - My Mum used to make me hot toddys when I was a kid. Not really my thing....Is there any medicinal value in gin and tonic? More my thing. Besides, the only booze in the house is a bottle wine left over from the holidays.

Corky - My Hubby is always making me herbal teas when I'm sick. I'm so miserable, though. Best to just let me sleep it off. You are so sweet, taking care of Allison like that! I hope that's she's not sick!

Nonny - Is that why you haven't been around? I was getting worried. J was sick for the whole 2 weeks that she was off for Christmas holidays. Poor kid. I have been sick about 2 weeks now, too. I keep feeling a little better, and then BAM, it hits me again.
I hope that you're feeling better, too. I hate coughing all night. You should ask your doc for a Rx cough supressant if it keeps up. I had stuff that knocked me on my ass a few yrs back. Best sleep that I ever had!

Cindy - I am feeling a bit better already. Nothing to worry about, just a nagging cough that doesn't want to go away, and some sinus problems..If I can't shake it soon, I might just take 4D's advice and have a hot toddy or 2, or3, or......

Oh, get better soon. I heard from both my girls this morning, one is suffering the flu - the other, the kids are sick. I'm fighting allergies of all things, so coughing sneezing too. It must have blown across the country with the snow! Stay warm, don't get chilled, get someone to make chicken soup, and rest! Be careful of over-counter-meds - they can stop up your lungs and make things worse!

Gardenia - I don't take very many drugs of any kind. I am VERY freaked out about anything that affects my lungs, because my Dad died of an idiopathic lung disease. Scares the pants off of me.
I do feel a bit better, but I have been fighting this thing for a couple of weeks now. Everyone seems to be getting sick....
