Summer Cold (whymewhyme???)

First off, I'd like to give a shout out to mah hubbs--HAPPY SIXTEENTH ANNIVERSARY, BABE! It feels like it hasn't been that long. Truly. On most days. ;-) (I'm kidding!!!)

Okay. I have a head cold. More like my head is deciding whether it's filled with cement or wants to explode, somewhere in the region around my right eye. Let me tell you, I am a HUGE wimp when I can't breathe through my nose. HUGE. As in, I freak out. So, I take all the drugs I can and hope they work, and I use my trusty standby, Severe Congestion Afrin Spray (the horror!) but only at night. Although I will say, every time I use it, I end up with a sinus infection. So, which is the lesser of the two evils? Five days of cement head stuffiness, or a day of woeful-wanna-rip-my-eyeballs-and-teeth-out pain, followed by a 10-day course of antibiotics.


Difficult choice, right? If you're a freak like me, who can't handle NOT being able to breathe through her nose, sometimes you opt for the latter. You should see me when I snorkel. Complete mess.

Anyway, lots of stuff to do today--I spent a lot of time writing yesterday, so today I must pay the fiddler--in the domestic sense. I have a kitchen and laundry room screaming to be paid attention to--so I'd better get on it.

And then it's off to the Dr. for my antibiotics. Boo.

Feel better soon! I'm just getting over the flu -- this year, it kind of crept up and now it lingers.
