real wine or cheese

i got sick 
the friday before christmas
since then 
i have been home mostly in bed
coughing

coughing

 the monday after christmas i was feeling a bit better
thanks to some cold meds
the cough persisted
in fact it spasmed my middle back
oh joy

all my plans 
for the vacation week
went the way 
of
 ice packs heating pads lots and lots of tea

apologies 
to all those whose comments i didnt reply to
today 
is the first day
 despite the coughing
despite the still aching back
i am able to actually sit at my desk for longer than a cough
and 
its a total whine fest

  3. I hope January treats you well. Did you get a cough medicine? My lingering, but mild, cold has gone away...just in time for lots of rain over the next two weeks. More time indoors. What shall I do?

  4. Ugh! Poor girl. I had a cold over the early part of December and it still refuses to be gone. It seems to have been a bad one this year for a lot of people. Well, enough of the shenanigans of the monkey. Bring on the rooster year and all will be better. Hopefully your back continues to improve. What a double whammy! Hugs.
