Okay, well as wonderful as New Years Eve was for Hubby and I, everything since then has been terrible.

We're both still sick with whateve this crud is- in my case I'm still sneezing and the coughing is only getting worse. I see a doctors visit in my future next week if it doesn't get MUCH better VERY soon. I mean it may be TMI- but it's really bad when you're coughing every 5 minutes and you pee every time you cough. And to top it off, I got Aunty Flo visiting this week as well. Oh LUCKY LUCKY me!!!

It's not helping that I've gained back 20 of the 54 pounds I lost and that and the Cruds are BOTH affecting my breathing and I'm back to snoring at night and keep disturbing Paul's sleep. So we're BOTH crabby and ill, in addition to being sick.

Neither of us have felt even remotely like recording another podcast lately, either.

I'm taking next week off work to sort out the house for the move- Something I can ill afford to do- but something that MUST be done- and I cannot do it on my days off- there's just not enough time. I figure I can do one room a day until it's all finished. I have got to gather a few more boxes and buy more trash bags and packing tape. Paul's main job during all this sorting is going to be going thru all his personal items and then taking photos of the items we want to sell and placing them on Craig's List so we can get this all taken care of.

This week I have to go to work five out of seven days. I'm still sick and don't feel up to it at all... and God help the first person who tells me-"Well, you don't have to worry about THAT much longer." Little piece of advice for you all- telling me that doesn't help when I don't feel well enough to go in to work. Not At All.

Anyway, the silver lining is that 2011 can only get better.
Thank God.

I haven't been sick to try this but I received an email that said to rub Vicks Vaporub on the bottom of you feet and then put a sock on & the sensitivity of the soles of your feet would quickly help you stop coughing and help you get over it. All I can do is pass on the info. As they said the worst that can happen is you smell like Vicks for a while.

EEE Gads!!! If ONLY it were that simple!!! I'm diabetic and I already have my feet burning- I don't think I could stand the added heat from the Vicks!! But it's something I'll pass on to my daughter for her and the kids to try!! Thanks Odie!

I hope you feel better soon!

Getting ready to move is a big enough pain in the ass without being sick on top of it all.
