I hate being sick!

I have a lousy cold with the watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, body aches, fever and chills. I was so cold this afternoon that I put on flannel pj's., warm socks and crawled into bed with 2 blankets and a comforter. I slept for 2 1/2 hours. When I woke up, I couldn't stop coughing. DH went to the pharmacy and came home with Buckley's extra strength daytime and night time capsules as well as Advil for the killer headache I had. When the meds kicked in, my fever broke and I started perspiring to the extent that my hair became soaking wet. I then had a shower and felt a lot better. I just took some Buckley's night time meds and am heading to bed soon. Needless to say, I did not go to work today. I played computer games and also got some stitching done. I stitched on project that I started a few years ago. Saw a picture of it on the net and remembered that I had that design, dug it out and stitched on it for about an hour. I'll post a picture of it tomorrow along with a progress pic of the design I'm working on for Brooke. I might go to work tomorrow, don't have to start until 11:30 a.m.

Oh, I hope you are feeling better soon. Bed and stitching are my suggestions. Hope it works

Get better soon MOM!- seems Brooke caught whatever you have too and is one whiny cranky awful baby, not her usual sweet self at all! Drink plenty of fluids and rest, rest, rest! I love you!
