It was a dark and stormy night, suddenly there was a CRASH of thunder. Oh no, that’s me, coughing, coughing, coughing and coughing. I can’t believe I still have this cold/congestion/cough/plague thingy. This is week 4 and it is really terrible.
Two weeks ago I taught 1 and canceled 6 of the classes I usually teach each week. Then I made it through the next week but I had to cancel one class this week and braved my way through the others while having coughing fits. My students are very understanding and said they still learned stuff. I hope they weren’t just humoring me.
The worst part of this, well besides being incredibly weary and sore from coughing is that the weather is so nice and my gardens are calling to me. I have bags of garden soil piled up to fill in the veggie garden and leaves to be removed from flower beds, raking, trimming and all the spring stuff I love to do sitting, waiting, for me, to get well.
So I am back on the couch, waiting, weezeeing, coughing, hopefully healing.
And they are waiting too.
(big sigh) OK give me sympathy friends.
:Rubs Weezee’s head in a sympathtic, but totally useless way:
Poor little bunny. That was going the rounds here about three months ago – I truly pity you. It’s a miserable thing. But it DOES go away. You’ll be better soon.
And I love the couch dogs. Ours aren’t allowed on the couch, but I always find hair and dirt on my couch if I’ve been gone, sometimes even a warm spot.
Wish I could help you with the gardens …. but we’d probably just talk and laugh a lot (especially about family members that are not present) and not get any work done. Then we’d start “pitchin’ and divin’ ” …. and then we’d be in a lot of trouble. (Maybe if we pitch and dive in the yard …. that’s okay?)
Musinex (sp?) is what got the cough out of me recently or I use Robitussin CM ….. both have the expectorant (guafenisin) that gets the gook out of the chest.
Thanks for all your well wishes. My Dr. fianlly put me on steriods so I am PUMPED up! Really feeling much better. My regular blogging will resume next week.
