I Should Have Known



I should have known that the pounding headache that I couldn’t shake meant something.

I should have known when Professor’s head hit my cheek and my whole head rung like a gong and throbbed for an hour after meant something.

I should have known when I started getting grouchy and cold and run down meant something.

That something is a cold. The first full blown cold I’ve had in over a year. I KNOW! Oh I’ve gotten the sniffles for a few days and then it’s gone. The rest of my family has suffered through cold after cold after cold and I just sailed through most of it.

I blame my Xooma water for that. Guys, this stuff is amazing. It’s vitamins, and minerals and doesn’t change the taste of the water AT ALL. Love it.

I haven’t been drinking it as regularly the past month or so. And here I am with a huge pounding head cold.

Coincidence? I think not.

I also have two very cranky boys so I think they are getting sick too. Joy of joys.

I hate cold and flu season. I’m moving to a tropical paradise where at least when I am sick I can sit out in the sun by the beach.

    When you move to the tropical paradise I will totally come visit you when you’re sick. Because I’m a good friend like that. I hope you shake it fast and that it doesn’t stick for long with the boys!

      Yes, because when you are feeling ill and groggy, you want to have visitors. Unless you respond to a small silver bell…then you are more than welcome! :)

    Sorry you are sick. That is hard when you’re the Mom. Take it easy as much as you can. ;) We appreciate the good job you do.

    It can be tropical here! Certainly the dry air is better for colds! Mom and I could give you chicken soup!
