Anyone catch the license plate of the truck that ran me over? Oh my did I ever catch Henri’s cold. I can’t quite decide if it’s strep, or bronchitis, or a sinus infection…all I know is that half of the day my ears tickle and throat hurts and I’ve got crazy headache/pressure, and the other half of the day is spent coughing my lungs out. I haven’t coughed out the hernia(s) yet, but that can’t be far off.
Last night, no joke, I was in bed as soon as the boys were. I’d already heated up a frozen onion soup (the ones from Costco are awesome) and as soon as the boys’ doors were closed I came to the kitchen, ate my soup, made a NeoCitran, drank it and climbed into bed.
I tried playing on my phone but couldn’t concentrate and was asleep sometime shortly before 8pm. I know I woke at midnight when Yannick got home, and then was wide-awake and alert at 2am. Coughing non-stop for 5 minutes will do that. I finally had to get up and go get my big “armrest”-style pillow, put my pillow in front of it, and then put a neck roll pillow on top of that so I could sleep sitting up, because lying down was killing me. I just couldn’t stop coughing. Finally around 3:30 I fell asleep again.
This morning my headache is insane but the cough isn’t as bad because I’m upright. I’m tired but don’t want to sleep any more and be up all night. The boys just got into bed so my plan is to sit on the couch with this:
Hopefully I can finish one of these things before I finish the two others.
This pic is for Maaike, who’d asked me for a less “yellow from night time iPhone pic” photo of the weaving-in-progress. I took this with the iPhone, but in natural sunlight. Any better at seeing the colors? You can see the 2 balls I’m currently striping on the edge of the photo in Wednesday’s post.
