Not Dreaming

I wish I was dreaming right now. 
I wish the horrendous head cold that I seem to have acquired... 
was only a figment of my imagination.


But no. 
I am stuffed up. 
I am dripping. 
I am hacking. 

My teeth hurt. My eyes ache. I can't breathe.

I am miserable. 
I am anxious to have some energy.

I don't particularly care for air travel:
Being cooped up with strangers....
And germs.

I've flown three times this year.
I have come away with souvenir colds on two of those occasions.

Ugh!

Yuck!

Next time I'm gonna wear a face mask.
I don't care how silly I look.


Better yet....
I'll be the lady in the bubble!



Maybe they'll even give me priority seating.

Nah....

Heck... they wouldn't even give us peanuts!

  1. I hear of that happening more and more. One gals solution was to bulk up on Vitamin C ...it seems to have worked for her. Around there the crud like you have has lasted at least four weeks sometimes longer. Hope you hubby cooks you some chicken soup:)

    1. Ah, thanks for the encouragement ;-)
      Hubby thinks he is coming down with it now. Uh oh... just two weeks ago he was in the ER with pneumonia!

  2. Join the club. I had a cold like that for a month starting 12/26 and am on round 2 for the past 10 days. Went to the Doctor both times...not the flu. Viral. Here's what I was told. Take Sudafed, give yourself steamers and don't sleep in a flat position. Have done all 3 and for about 4 nights I took one dose of a cough syrup. Also had the feeling my head was going to explode and had coughing fits! What the heck! It's everywhere. Do you know anything about Moondance? I would like to get in touch if you have an email. Hope you recover quickly.

    1. Yes, a Grandbaby is a good thing, for sure! I can't wait!

  4. First congrats on your upcoming Grandbaby. Second is you use wax warmers (Scentsys), rather than scented wax do a dollop Vicks vapor rub. Really helps unplug you, especially for sleep. Get better soon.

Our drive through central California seemed long and frankly, boring. However, the monotony was broken by observing the produce along the s...
