Yay! I Caught a Cold!

Yeah, my title is complete sarcasm. Yes, I caught a cold. No, I'm not excited about it.

I probably caught it days ago since the munchkin we babysit has been sick most of the week, but I really started to feel it on Friday. I walked to the post office and back, and then felt icky and tired, so I wound up napping with the baby on the couch. I felt worse when I woke up. :(

Once he was picked up, I took cold medicine and forced myself to finish the assignment I claimed the night before. Luckily, I had already met my weekly quota/goal, so I didn't have to do anything else after that assignment. I watched Girl Meets World: Home For The Holidays, some of WWE Smackdown and Full House. I eventually hit the hay.

Yesterday I was just sooo tired and today I have developed a cough. :( Yes, I have been taking cold medicine for it. I doubt I'll have a coffee until I start feeling better. Right now I'm drinking my V8 Fusion before switching over to tea with honey. Ughhh.

I wanted to start wrapping presents yesterday, but I just wasn't feeling up to it. I am hoping to get started today, but we'll see how I am feeling. We are not babysitting tomorrow, so hopefully I start to feel better so I can write. Otherwise, I guess I shouldn't beat myself up if I do reach my daily quota tomorrow.

I did get my tablet back on Thursday, and it's a good thing, because now I can just lay down and relax instead of sitting at the computer.

I'm going to wrap this up and go find some food. I hope you are all doing well.

I find that taking cold-eeze right away helps reduce cold symptoms drastically.

I have a cold this morning. It is due to the stormy night before.

slexy143 - Thanks! And yep, it had Shawn, Amy and Alan, and Joshua on it. emoticon :grin:
Scorpie - You know, I have heard of it, but have never taken it. It's starting to hurt to cough so I may need to look into it when I run errands tomorrow.

scheng1 - Ack! I hope you're feeling better!

Both of us seem to have the same cold. I will sleep through the afternoon and night to get rid of it.

I haven't had that bad of a cold in the years I've been taking my a-little-too-pricey-but-well-worth-it vitamins, but when I do I can usually knock it right out of my system with a hot tea/JD/honey/lemon concoction. Good luck getting better.

I wish that would have worked for me. :( I saw a doctor so I have meds for it. I'm glad you're feeling better though!

This cold/cough was pretty bad, and my prescriptions combined were pricey, but it's helping. And thank you! :)

Glad to hear you're getting better.
