I woke up this morning all stuffy, and it's gotten a little better, but not much. Now I'm all hot and fever-y and my throat hurts.
Crap. Crap crap crap. I hate having a cold. I feel I'm not sick enough to actually languish and sit home and eat bon-bons, but I'm miserable enough to be, well, miserable. I hope it doesn't get much worse. I know hot tea with honey and lemon helps, but I'm already hot. I suppose I could stand outside with my mug of tea.
What do they say? "Feed a cold and starve a fever."
(Ed's ears perked up with "starve." He's all "Really? We get to starve? When can we start?" Never, you mangy bastard. Go away. Join the snotty Kleenex in the garbage.)
To top it off, I went to the library this afternoon, and I left the milk sitting out on the counter after lunch. I walk in to my stinky milk apartment. Yuck.
Then (then!) I make eggs and cheese and sausage and toast for dinner. I burnt the toast. Not a little. Like one side of each piece was BLACK. There was smoke. So now I'm living in a sour milk and burnt toast love den with my cat.
I guess that's the one good thing about having a stuffy nose...

Drop me a line!
