Still alive, still sick. This is some monster cold! I don't have any signs or symptoms that it's progressed to anything antibiotics would cure, but I feel just about the same as I did at the beginning of the cold--stuffed up, full of mucus, tight cough, irritated throat, and sinus headache and pressure. No body aches or fever, so it doesn't seem to be the flu. ARGH!
I had pretty much finished my shopping before I got sick and I'd managed to bake a couple batches of cookies, but I'm afraid that's as far as I've gotten in Christmas preparations. Luckily, the only cooking and hostessing planned for the holiday is some sort of Christmas brunch for Hubby, Soccer Son, and His Lovely Wife--pretty low key, all things considered. We have a family gathering planned for Saturday at the In-Laws' home, but all I need to do for that is show up. So I'm hopeful another four days of rest through the weekend and holidays will help kick this thing. And I'll post if I have anything to say that's remotely interesting, but mostly I'm just hanging around and resting.
