I'm sick.

For the past three days I have had the flu/cold combo that is making the rounds. I didn't ask for it. I don't want it. I wish I didn't have it.

But we can't always get what we want. So here is how I am dealing with it.

First of all I am grateful that I don't work or have young children around. That would really crimp my style. I just want to sleep.

My sick routine is to sleep till noon, have breakfast, take a couple of benedryl, go back to bed wake up around 3, take some Comtrex Cough and Cold, read and then back to bed.

Repeat every 3 hours as necessary. Until bedtime.

Comtrex has been my saviour and I recommend it to everyone suffering the stuffy sinus, cough, headache, sore throat, blahs. Within a few minutes the symptoms go away. The benedryl kicks in, and its good night Irene.

I'll be back in form soon, till then keep the shiny side up.

Toad - Love the blog. I found my way over here from "The Preppy Pauper". I was especially interested because you're from Missouri - my home state. I now live in outside of Washington DC, but often find myself very homesick. My parents and in-laws are still there. All of my friends, too.

My blog is hillbillydebutante.blogspot.com

It's mostly for 'girls', but you're welcome to 'stop by' anytime.
