Still In Stitches

I have been ill since Tuesday night. I had made the comment that I didn't know what it would be like to stay home for 24 hours--it seems like I spend so much time running errands. Well, wish granted! I haven't left the house since Tuesday! I won't bore you all with the details. Nothing major, just cold symptoms in debilitating proportions.

A friend sent me this cartoon, and I thought it was hilarious.

I'm hoping to get enough strength to prepare for and go on a pre-Thanksgiving trip to GA with my DH and children. My cough is keeping me from sleeping well, and I ache all over from the forcefulness of it.

Hoping you're feeling better Joan. I imagine all of your children have been taught well what needs to be done around the homested... still, it's not the same when mom's taking some down time is it?

Take the time out you need so you don't deal with a relapse later!

Joan, have you tried the hot water, honey, and as much lemon juice as you can stand in a mug remedy? It really works. Of course, you should team up with my pal Vicks (vapor rub).
