Still Here, . . .

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.

Kim, I have relief for you!! You need to go to the pharmacy and get one of those Nasal Cleansing Pots....the work!!!!! and they are all natural so no side effects! Here's a link to a sample...your drug store may carry another brand. Scroll down the page until you see Xlear Neti

I sure hope you feel better soon. It is no fun to be sick at any time, but especially not during the holidays! Drink lots of liquids and get plenty of rest.

One word...wiskey...ok, you do have to add honey and lemon and heat it up in the microwave.

I agree with Anna. Whiskey really does help! I add a spoonful of honey and heat just a tad in the microwave.

Get well soon.
