Keep your sneeze to yourself, pleeze

Like everybody else, when I don't know what else to do, I seem to go in for catching colds.
~ George Jean Nathan

What I mistakenly thought was a bit of a hangover (shhhh...) this morning... has turned out to be a cold (uggggggh). With a cough, stuffy nose, sinus pressure and that most fun of all symptoms -- a fever.

If you consider my new clean-clean-clean eating habits and couple them with an evening of drinking Agave Honey Margaritas made with top shelf tequila, a bit of a hangover would be the logical explanation for my headache and sluggishness. However, the germ's the thing. Not even the hair of the dog can help this situation.

A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.
~ Ogden Nash

Silly me -- here I thought I had done my cold penance for the year, having had a yucky one right after the first of the year.

Guess not. Although I cannot figure out where this blasted thing came from. However, given the amount of time I spend with kiddos both at school and church, I have a pretty good idea (especially since one of the Choir Urchins sported a faucet-running nose on Wednesday...)

I'll never be able to finger the real culpret -- but I'm cursing those transient germs as I write this.

Ah-Ah-Ah CHOO!

Sorry. Off to find a tissue.

Be well, y'all. And I mean that literally.

Keep your sneeze to yourself
Don't share your germs with anyone else
Grab a tissue off the shelf
And keep your sneeze to yourself.

~ Barney the Big Ass Purple Dinosaur

Can you not catch a break? I can't believe you are in the thick of a nasty cold/fever again. I hope you feel better soon. Try to get some quality rest time.

I've finally started feeling better. My doc gives me great drugs that work well for me. :-)

I hope you feel better soon!
