I am Sick and Tired...

Of being sick and tired!

I think I managed to pick something up during the Boston trip. I am not OCD about germs, normally, but when I travel, I really am. I washed my hands so many times I am shocked they didn't crack from the cold and soap. Sadly, though, it didn't help. Who knows what I picked up or where. All I know is that I have been under the weather for over 2 weeks now. I think I slept a total of 4 hours last night because I was coughing so much (and out of Nyquil). I think I just get to let this run it course, but I am tired, coughing, tired and fairly miserable. Hopefully, I will feel better soon!


On a side note, I did talk to someone at the local watering hole about the child drinking on premises. The person I talked to tends bar on Fridays, but is assistant manager. She was completely offended that there was the possibility of an underage drinker consuming bar alcohol there. She saw the girl drinking from the styrofoam cup and thought they were bringing it in. That is still unaccepatable in my book, but this person was not as angry about that. She vowed to get to the bottom of it and swore there would be no more of it in the future.


My son is at his father's for the holidays. He left last Sunday and tonight is the first time I have really talked to him since he left. He is not having a good time. He, too, is sick and tired, but only of the fact that his father and stepmother are morons (his words, not mine). He is a very compasionate person and does not understand the fact that his dad talks about Christianity and clearly doesn't like certain groups of people. I wish I had known this last night, I would have driven to pick him up today. (He is about 6 hours away.) Hey, Pete, if you are paying attention out there in Blogland, if you could bring him home (he is in your neck of the woods), I would be happy to put you up and feed you Christmas dinner!

I am working on Christmas Eve, as most people do. I may have another post up between now and Christmas, but if I don't, I hope all of you have a wonderful day!

That's a long time to feel crappy. If it goes on much longer, you may want to have it checked out. I live on NyQuil at night myself, so I'm not one to be talking, I guess.

One word re. frequent hand washing - Euceryn.

Best wishes for feeling better, preferably yesterday!

And Happy NODWISH to you & yours.

Mucinex Rocks! I am feeling better today after only 2 doses! Impressive!

But I am still taking Nyquil tonight!
