Colds Suck

Yep, I have a cold.  I felt just fine yesterday morning.  Symptoms like sneezing, and congestion started yesterday afternoon.  The runny nose started in the evening.  (That's always fun to deal with in the middle of the night.)

I'm consciously not feeling well.  I have a headache.  The sneezing and runny nose are relentless.  I should own stock in Kleenex at this point.  I'm also irritable.  Hmmm...  Wonder why?  Probably because I didn't get much sleep.  Oh, and because my nose is both congested and runny!  That never ceases to amaze...and irritate me.

I'm grateful it's not worse.  I could have the flu or bronchitis or pneumonia or strep or some crazy stomach virus, all of which is going around!

I do hope it remains just a cold and is over as quickly as it set in.

I worked much of the day.  Now, I'm consciously recognizing that I need a break.

Be open to what comes.
