« My head is packed, but not with ideas. | Main | And here's my last whiny post of 2005. »

No more whining in 2006!

I have nothing to say but I didn’t want you all to think I was still splashing around in my vat of self-pity. Thanks to you, I am now toweling myself off and wondering why I ever got in there in the first place. Thank you so much for your comments and emails. God, you people are nice.

The reason I have nothing to say is that my head is completely filled with fluids. The child sneezed in my face one too many times (as if once is not too many). I am entertaining myself by taking my temperature and trying to figure out what foods don’t taste like cardboard. So far, the answer is none.

Henry is all better and likes to tell me about his all-betterness as he jumps up and down on my head.

So: my brain is drowning, and my nose fell off a few minutes ago from over-blowing. More later, if I survive the night.

Wow Nita, that is really gross !!!As for cold relief, I am a firm believer in Vicks. Put some on your nose-holes... instant relief... also a little brandy never hurt anyone. Hope you feel better.

Nice little souvenir Henry gave you when you took a trip to SickHenryLand! You should have thanked him kindly and declined to accept it. Sorry you are feeling crappy and snotty (not that you are snotty, just congested) and I hope you feel better soon.

Get well soon!! (I'd say sneeze back at him, but you know, the circle just goes 'round and 'round then!)

Yet again, you all amaze me. I have the hardest time dealing with myself when I am sick, I can't imagine having a child wanting me to lavish attention on it (him? her? I am childless. What is the proper pronoun?) at the same time.

To amuse myself during the trying times of illness, I like to torture my roommate. "Keem. I think I am dying." Try saying that about 50 times to your husband! The fun never ceases! Especially when he loses it and yells "You're not dying! But you could be!" And possibly "Why do you keep calling me Keem?"

Hope you get better soon!

my mom lost her sense of smell nearly 21 years ago, because she had a stroke when i was born. thankfully that's all she lost! the loss of her sanity came much later, possibly due to my supernatural ability to break my arm every other year until i was seven. ^_^ but yeah - just be happy you'll be able to smell again eventually. she'll never smell again *aaaaw* LOL
