Ok, I hate to be a quitter. I hate to give up and say I’m beat, but I think I am beaten this time.
Saturday was two weeks that I’ve had this dreadful cold, and it doesn’t really seem to be getting any better.
I’m planning to call the family doctor tomorrow to see if she has any suggestions. I’m following the instructions that she gave to Ralph in the fall…take Zicam and some kind of over the counter cold medicine. I had a quick version of the cold that held on for weeks for him. Of course he was giving up smoking at the same time, which made it harder for him. It worked for me then, but doesn’t seem to be working this time.
I planned to dig right in to projects when I got back but that hasn’t happened.
On the other hand, Ralph has made a big chunk of progress on his cleaning out projects. I’m very proud of him for that.
We’re off to a St. Patrick’s day lunch with Ralph’s sisters, brother-in-law, aunt and cousin. We always have a good time together. I’m looking forward to it…just hope I don’t have to leave the table to cough up a lung. That’s disgusting and I do apologize for the crudeness, but that’s the way I feel just now. If it really bothered me, I’d delete it. 😉
I’m drinking a big cup of tea/green tea with honey and lemon (bottled juice is all I had) and I know that helps. I should make some of that mix I made in the fall…lemon, ginger and honey and then put it in my tea. Ok…gotta buy some lemons. I think that was a help back in the fall…hopefully it will be this time.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Everyone have an enjoyable and safe day!
