I Had High Hopes

I had high hopes that I might actually slip through this years cold and flu season unscathed. Doesn't look like that is going to happen. Thursday afternoon I started to feel something strange in my throat and sinuses and wham, Friday I was hit full on with a nice head cold. I came home last night and went to bed early hoping to get some much need rest but alas it wasn't to be. I woke up at 10:30 pm and my throat was on fire and felt like it was closing. I got up and came downstairs and spent the remainder of the night wishing my throat would stop hurting. It felt like it was closed slightly and swollen. It was a long night with a lot of chills and very little of the needed sleep. This morning, while I don't feel good, at least my throat seems to be better. Now it is a head/upper chest cold and I feel a little off center. The good is the weekend and I don't have to do much.

I couldn't drag myself up and out to look at the lunar eclipse so I'll have to wait until 2014 to see the next one.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season...


  1. Get well soon - at least you didn't get this awful flu at Christmas.

    If it's any consolation, I'm feeling fine and I still missed the eclipse!

  2. Those darn colds always seem to start with a bad sore throat. When you get one, you know you're in for it. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Get well quick!! Cannot miss things like the eclipse again!!
