I Should Buy Stock in Kleenex

I have been sneezing and otherwise feeling yucky for the past few days now. It's that time of year when allergies and colds converge upon me to make me feel miserable.

The person who came up with the idea to put lotion in tissues should be given a medal. Why can't I think of these things?

When I get home after work, all I want to do is put on my flannel jammie pants and curl up on my couch under my fuzzy pink blanket that Maddy made me last Christmas. However, pending deadlines prevent me from doing this. Boo.

The upside is that our new house has a fireplace. I cannot wait to fire that sucker up (literally), to chase away the cold and dark that permeates this time of year. It's starting to wear me down. I will also have a garage, oh joy. I haven't had my car in a garage for, wow, ten years. The thought of not having to warm up my car or scrape my windows makes me giddy.

Now if I could just breathe, things would be just dandy.

I've got a miserable cold. It's a drag not being able to breath. Hope the move goes smoothly. It sounds lovely.

I feel ya! Have you seen the Kleenex commercials? Something about letting it all out. They're pretty cute! Get well soon!

Allergies or cold that is so miserable. Feel better.

I don't care what the latest reports say, I like Airborne and I think it really helps. Plus a few vitamin C tablets will help, too. That's all the advice from Dr. Gail today. :)
Interesting how you have a lot to keep you busy right now and keep your mind off other things. Maybe all our prayers are being answered for you.

I have a terrible cold too. Two weeks now. Today I can finally breathe.

Kim - on a seperate note... would it be okay if I mailed you two ornaments for your tree in Collinsville. I would like to participate but I am unable to attend your candlight vigil. I didn't know your girls but I met you and Maddy and would like to show my support. Also would it be okay if I said something about the vigil the closer it gets on my blog? Just let me know hjtorbs@sbcglobal.net

Totally agree that lotion in tissues is the best idea ever.

So sorry you sick. I have avoided it thus far! Knock on wood.

Sorry you are feeling so miserable. It is going around here too. I have been cracking up after looking at the link of the Olan Mills photos. That is so so funny. I think I will link that on my blog too. Thanks for the laugh this morning. I needed it!
