I could feel it coming Thursday night. Sniffles. Scratchy throat. Exhaustion.
By bedtime yesterday it was a full-on head cold, and now I can feel it making the natural progressions through my throat, chest, and sinuses.
I'm so glad it's the weekend and my spouse is here to do 99% of the parenting. I've been wandering around, resting, and drinking lots of apple cider vinegar/lemon/honey water. I've taken a few trips on the self-pity/offer it up roller coaster as well.
Offering up my suffering is a concept pretty new to me, but my beautiful new mug helps! I'm not good at suffering well, so I need lots of reminders.
I can't remember my last bad cold; it must have been November or early December. I remember winters where I had a cold at least every month, so the fact that I can't pinpoint last time I was sick is a big win. Not having kids in day care likely helps.
I think I'll sit here a while longer with my friends Kleenex, remote and mug. We're enjoying Tedeschi Trucks Band on Austin City Limits, then I'll try to sleep the virus away. Goodnight!
