A Bit of a Whine

January 1st, 2013 at 06:19 am

I left work last night at about 5:30 and stopped for gas on the way home. I scope out the gas prices on the way down and then stop at the best place on the way back. This time it was Shell, which was a double winner, because I can also use my Jewel-Osco rewards card for a discount. I believe I only got a .25 discount, but every snowflake counts, right? I think it was about $19 -- don't have the receipt handy right now.

I'll do my recaps tomorrow. Normally I would be excited to get to them, but I am so sick today I have no interest. I was better yesterday, but today my cold is in the draining stage, but I still have the headache. Yuck. Taking Theraflu doesn't seem to help at all, but ibuprofen seems to help. Unfortunately I took the last one this morning. I may need to venture out to get more, and while I'm at it, I ought to get a humidifier, too. This condo, with its radiator heat, is very dry, and that isn't helping me any.

I parked on the street last night. While there were places on my street, they were tight and would have required skillful parallel parking. I was willing to try, but there was too much traffic. So I parked on a cross street that was actually quite close to my alley. Really only a few steps more than my "old" parking place.

It's a bummer to be sick at this time of year. All year I look forward to the time between Christmas and New Years to catch up on things and get organized. This year it's been a total wash. Between work and illness, it's been a total waste of time. Blah.

I really wanted to go see Les Miserables today, but I will have to improve a lot before I can do that.

    I feel for you, believe me! Being sick through Thanksgiving and right up until Christmas really sucked. What a waste! Feel better soon!

    I'm right there with ya! I've been miserable for several days, and the OTC meds just weren't helping, so most of the time I didn't even try to take anything. Last night I started feeling feverish on top of everything else! I looked at some leftover prescription meds we had, and realized the Oxycodone is top dose acetomenophin, which is a pain and fever reducer. I took a couple of those and was so happy to feel pain-free as we celebrated the new year! Plus, I felt dopy, so it sort of replaced champagne in my celebrations. Wink

    I have a cool mist vaporizer that I use all winter and it is definitely helpful. I would say it is definitely worth the money to get it. Also, try Traditional Medicinals Breathe Easy Tea. You can get it at health food stores and some grocery stores, usually in the health food.

    I totally understand where you're coming from - hating being sick this time of year. I'm getting some of the things done I wanted to, but not as much - due to feeling totally blech. Hope you feel better soon!
