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.

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.
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.
