All my plans have been sidelined by the cold that's been brewing most of the week. I had a rough day yesterday, a baaaaad night last night followed by another not so good day. When I'm not sneezing, I'm blowing my nose. And if I'm not doing either, I'm coughing.

I have slept little, mostly because, even propped up, I can't really lay down. (That sets off an immediate coughing fit.) Really loving life about now.

So, looks like I'll be spending some time assembling the remaining lights, disassembling the boxes they came in, and getting all that outside for tomorrow's trash. The mother hasn't felt much better than me, so all of the storage tubs remain in their current spots.

As for me, I'm downing some more Nyquil cold capsules. Here's hoping they help.

I have the exact same thing. It's the cold from hell.

For a fleeting moment today I thought I actually smelled something for the first time in days. I think I just imagined it.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Okay, I know this sounds crazy, but I checked it out on Snopes and everything...

Put Vicks VapoRub on the soles of your feet, pull on a nice thick pair of socks, and you won't cough for hours. It works. Crazy, I know, but it does.

I've heard the same thing Jayne. Luckily I haven't been sick yet to try it out myself. Let us know how it works, and here's hoping you are feeling much better faster.

My sympathies. Let us know if Jayne's advice worked. My efforts yesterday were way-laid by a nasty allergy attack. Now I have to get back to organizing that dusty closet.

dynochick -- Thanks! hope you're feeling better, too. This stuff just will NOT let go!

Jayne - I'm going to try it. Of course taking Benadryl and getting knocked on your a** seems to work pretty good, too!

MM -- Thanks! I'll try it out and let you know.

Why -- I can relate so well. Sorry to hear about the allergies. I have those, too, plus super sensitive sinuses which is making this bug thing even worse. Hope you are back on track now!
