Now That Spring is Here

I've contracted my yearly cold. I feel like ick. Ick on a stick. I don't know what that means but my brain has been pretty muddled for the past few days. It doesn't help that the weather is so nice I can't stay inside. And I thought about calling in sick to work, but that's no guarantee I'll feel better tomorrow, so I keep trudging to work.

Today Olaf made me buy some of that Emergen-C stuff at the store. Of course I bought the generic, it was $2 less. Here's my first official review, it's pretty nasty. But hopefully it'll do the trick and help the cold dissipate into the sunshine and breeze.

And to top it all off I've been sucked into a new book, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. That means when I go to bed early I just read until my regular bedtime. Technically I'm getting enough sleep, but not the extra hour I need to shake this crummy cold.

Here's hoping you are all enjoying Spring more than I am right now. Thank goodness Spring last for a few months around here, I hope to be relishing it next week.

Colds are the worst. I'm the same way, though - I keep going to work. Cause who wants to use their vacation days on a cold?

So sorry, but you have a week to get better before you leave for Las Vegas and Arizona. We've already had one sick family, let's not make it 2 in a row.

I've had a bad cough all week and by bedtime I've usually lost my voice. But on the flip side are you loving World War Z? I could never stop reading at night.
