I have caught a head cold, one that requires me to keep myself from infecting other people by laying on the sofa and watching HGTV as much as humanly possible and shower frequently to help clear my nasal cavities.  Last night before falling asleep, I made sure I had everything I needed on the coffee table for the night – generic Vics VapoRub, Chloroseptic, a box of tissues, a big glass of ice water, acetaminophen and a trash can for all the used tissues. The only thing I really needed, but didn’t have was a catheter. Since the fuzzy pregnancy brain is now clogged with mucus too, things around here are moving a bit more slowly than before (and I didn’t really think that was possible, given the extra 30lbs that have hunkered down around my midsection and thighs).  I’m sure none of this is interesting and have no reason to share it with you except to say wha! very loudly down this series of tubes and, also, don’t be surprised if I I’m a zombie at Bible study tonight.

  1. Hilarious! Well, not funny that you’re sick, but funny about the catheter part. I would get so much more sleep if I had one! Last week I was up to 3 times a night, although this week only 1-2 per evening. Sorry to hear you’re sick but can understand the discomfort of lugging around the weight and trying to get comfortable. 🙂

  2. Yep… Sounds a lot like how I’m feeling. Except for the prego part! Hope you feel better.
