Cough! Cough!

Well, this cold or whatever it is, is a whopper. It started out normal enough, but my stuffiness has lasted for about four days now, which is unusual. For two day now, I haven't been able to smell or taste. It's not fun to eat now. But one thing I've discovered is that snacking is not appealing when you can't taste! So many times I've wanted to munch on some chips or candy (my favorite Sweet Tarts - Valentine edition) but I've turned away as I remembered I wouldn't be able to taste them anyway.

I'm also coughing a lot now. Poor Steve, he has to hear me hacking upon sleeping and waking. I can't wait for this to all be over.

I've been able to get a lot of crocheting done. I'm working on a scarf for Emily. It's an easy pattern and would be going quickly but I was unlucky enough to find a huge tangle in the middle of the skein. What a mess! I was debating whether to attempt to untangle it or just buy a new one, but for some reason, I felt like I had to win the battle and I've persisted in trying to untangle it. So I untangle some, crochet a little, untangle some more, and so on. I'll have to take some pictures of my progress.

Emily had her Valentine's Day party at preschool today. She was so excited to get cards and candy from her classmates. She showed me everything she got and told me about all the food she ate. She's hoping when she goes to Kindergarten that it will be just as fun. I assured her that it would. Ryan and Kathryn have their class parties on Friday. Steve and I don't usually do anything for Valentine's Day, other than exchange cards and I'm so late with getting that. I know it's going to be slim pickings among the available cards, but you never know.

I think I'd better end now. I'm coughing too much and I need to rub some Vicks on my chest for the night. I think tomorrow will be a better day!

My hubby has a whopper of a cold too. He picked it up at work and now my ds has it too. I'm isolating the newborn from both of them. ;-)

Here's hoping you get feeling better soon!

Hi, Lisa;
So sorry to hear you've been ill! I'm on the same page as Cmerie---my husband got really sick, too. He had to visit the doc yesterday, where he was diagnosed with a sinus infection and bronchitis. Not fun!

I'm envious of your crocheting, though, even though I relate to the tangles! I haven't done any crocheting in ages, but it's a nice, relaxing activity (when you're on a roll).

Take care. Hope you feel better real soon. :-)

Oh I feel you, I am dealing with the same thing here at home, we are ALL sick and YES....the congestion is just driving me insane.

I couldn't smell or taste and then yesterday I could and today I'm back to not being able to and it's just frustrating. But yes, I find that I don't eat or snack as much because everything is so bland.
