Cold/Flu ~ Football Playoffs ~ Alex-Jack Pig Trough ~


Good 39ยบ rainy morning. It's started. Weather will get worse for a few days. Rain and snow mix through Thursday. It was gloomy all day yesterday....

The whole day was icky. I woke at 3-am-ish and could not go back to sleep. Tired all day and then the 'flu/cold' symptoms came on me (stuffy head, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat,stomach questionable). Started taking Zicam, Vitamin C, Zink, and gargling with hot water and apple cider vinegar. Also took alka seltzer for the tummy!   So................ didn't go anywhere, stayed in and warm. Football was sort of sucky.... Colts lost. Boooooo, sorry B. On the other hand the Packers womped the Vikings and the Seahawks smacked the Redskins! YEAH to all!!!

The best part is the symptoms I had are all gone. That Zicam, let one dissolve in your mouth every three hours, is the bomb! I feel pretty good, and after dinner of homemade soup and lots of sleep (10pm-7:45am) I think I will state unequivocally that I am over whatever it was that attacked me.

I didn't even have the energy or strength to make a fire in the wood stove yesterday. Turned on the heater and lay under my comforter all day. My neighbors took my trash can up to the road for me. I was a mess! Glad that is over with!

Kristen, Alex, and Jack went to Ferrells for her birthday celebration. They ordered a "Ferrells Pig Trough"! And here we are in anticipation.............

.... and then too full to move.....
Oink oink oink!!!
