Summer Cold

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

I've been pretty laid out from a nasty summer cold. I was rocking the man voice over the weekend, but got bombed by the cough and overall "blahs" on Monday. I made it to work at 9:00am on Monday, but left early. I tried to get to be early on Monday night . . . but I kept waking up to my body's weird suppression of the cough. I can't even describe what it sounded like, but thankfully it didn't wake Isaac or Tony . . . just me. Due to this it was an extremely brutal night and I stayed home from work yesterday.

I slept off and on through out the day, but really wish I could have slept more.

I can tell I'm beyond exhausted and sick because:

a) I found the coffee pot in the fridge without any recollection of putting it there.

b) I didn't want to eat.

c) I wrote out the check at Walgreens to the dollar amount, instead of to Walgreens.

d) I text messaged my boss that I received her Mom's check, instead of Gina since I'm shooting her sister's wedding this weekend.

Yikes. I'm in work this morning. Thankfully last night was better, but I really feel like I'm going to fall over and sleep without warning.

Blech. We all had a summer cold a couple of weeks ago, and it was terrible! I hope you're feeling better soon!

PS- I am LOLing about the coffee pot in the fridge.

Feel better! Something must be going around...I felt like crap last week - sneezing, runny nose and mad body aches. Luckily it only lasted 48 hours so I'm hoping you're on the mend :)

Ugh, I loathe summer colds. I had a horrible one right before I went into labor.

Lol at the coffee pot in the fridge. Sounds like something I would do even when I'm not sick ;)

Feel better soon!

Ugh, no fun! I, too, am sick with a summer's case of tonsillitis and it's no fun at all. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

I just found your blog and I'm enjoying it :) I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Get well soon!

Yuck- I feel your pain- I had a cold a few weeks ago. It seemed to last so much longer than usual, and my ears were so plugged up. It's miserable!

I read this at work today (where I can't leave comments) and totally LOL'd at the coffee pot in the fridge. Feel better girl!

Leah - I am so sorry about your loss. It has broken my heart - and feel terrible that I hadn't been checking my Google Reader in so long.

Please know that I am praying fervently for you and for Tony.

My husband and I experienced a miscarriage a year ago. easily the most traumatic experience of my life. It is an incredibly confusing time - and especially difficult to understand while trusting that God has a plan. I hope that my Steven will meet Josiah - and together they will talk about how much their parents love them - and they love us.

Please contact me if you ever want to talk or to share. I will close this message with something I saw yesterday at a Christian bookstore - it was something that truly touched my heart at the time - but I am happy I saw it so I could share it with you:

"I never got to hold you & bounce you on my lap. I never got to read to you or watch you as you nap. You slipped away so quickly, before I said your name. And yet I want the world to know I loved you just the same." -Anne Peterson.
