It never fails – I always seem to come back from Christmas vacation SICK.
The whole time I was at my brother’s house, my adorable niece was barking like a seal. And of course, she wants to sit this close to you.
A few days ago it started with a tickle and a cough. Now it feels like my throat is on fire, and it is even worse if I dare to swallow. A great friend got me some cough drops and I am hopelessly taking Zicam.
If that wasn’t bad enough, as I was packing to leave Cali, I dropped my laptop charger on my big toe. No big deal, I’m clumsy, I drop stuff all the time (heck, I even have a clumsy category on this blog!). Well, except that it is now two days later and it hurts every time I put weight on it. But what are the going to do? It’s a big toe!
So… what a mess right?!
P.S. Even if I wasn’t sick before I got on a plane yesterday, I will certainly be sick after. I was – believe it or not – sitting next to four sick kids. I had one kid sitting right next to me coughing. Then across the aisle were three sisters all coughing. Where the heck were the parents? Well, for the kid next to me, they were flying standby and were somewhere else on the plane. For the sister, both parents were in the row behind. From the behavior of the kids, I would have wanted a break from them too!
