Cacaphony of coughing

Oh, we are sick here.

Coughing, sneezing, aching joints and the chills - we got it going on. Matt came down with the plague a few days ago and tried to give me pursed-lip kisses to protect my fragile immune system, but what's mine is his and what's his is mine, so please just kiss me properly and hand over that nasal sting and heavy chest.

He's feeling better today and since I'm running about a day behind him, I expect to feel some improvement tomorrow. In the meantime I have rediscovered my love for Theraflu with Mucinex chasers, made a huge pot of soup, and scheduled a steamy shower and Snuggie wrap for this afternoon.

If you have a magic cure, please leave details in the comments.

1. Eat a tablespoonful of Vick's Vap-O-Rub .

2. Eat whole raw gloves of garlic lol.

Excellent suggestions, Todd. I screwed up and put the Vap-O-Rub on my chest instead of in my mouth, but I'll try to get it right next time ;)

MUCH much better now, thank you! Will do the steam thing to help nudge improvement along. Sorry about your sinuses, Alexis! I hear steaming your head with sage water helps :)

Hey Melissa I havent visited for ages and I come back to a new profile pic (great shot!)and a blog cleanout! Maybe I should do that - it may inspire me to write more than once a year! Hope you're feeling better soon!

Great timing, Isabella! I'm on the down side of this one, but will remember the suggestions for next time.

Hi Drea, good to see you! I would love it if you wrote more than once a year, lol. Do what you've got to do!
