I had an extremely lazy weekend. Oh, I had big plans, but ended up sitting/laying on the couch, watching football all weekend. I was going to clean like a mad woman, making sure every speck of dust was gone. We've been having some work done on the house...I'm waiting to blog about it until it gets completely done, so things are a little out of kilter.
It started on Thursday. By Thursday afternoon I felt like total crap. I was suppose to go to a band booster exec. board meeting, but ended up asking the treasurer if she wouldn't mind taking notes for me. I was in bed at 7:00; asleep by 7:30. I missed the small town's football game on Friday; only about the 4th or 5th game I've missed in the 8 seasons we've lived here.
So what's going on? Maybe it was the mere mention in Joyce's hodgepodge about colds & flu shots. Or maybe it was one of my sisters' having a bad cold/cough last weekend. I ended up laying on the couch yesterday afternoon and falling asleep; I felt much better after I woke up.
Coughs are annoying. It's the kind that you try to suppress, but it just keeps nagging and tickling your throat, especially if you get hot. It's the kind where the mucous just "hangs there"; won't go down, won't come up. (TMI?) I tried mucinex, and it just didn't take care of the problem. I tried hot tea...no go. Any other suggestions?
