Not again (warning: major whine ahead)

Ugh. I hate posting things like this. I'm sick again. I was better for one week and another nasty virus set in. It feels like there's an elephant sitting on my face, my sinuses are throbbing and it was all I could do yesterday to make it through the day at work. My one squirt of afrin that I allow myself every 24 hours (so as not to get rebound congestion) is going to wear off in the next 30 minutes and I'll spend the next 12 hours dreaming about my next one.

I've finished 3 books but I just don't have it in me to write about them right now. All were good but I can't find a single thing to say about any of them at this moment. I'm also trying to get laundry done and the house in order since two of us are going out of town next week.

Truly, I am not looking for sympathy, but wanted to check in and say that I'm still around and am hoping to post something more thoughtful later this week or at least before we leave.

The end.

Tara, I'm sorry you're sick again. I can relate. This has definitely been a rough season for illness. Hope you're well soon, and I look forward to reading your thoughts on what you've been reading. I look forward to coming to your blog every day. You always have something informative and/or entertaining to share. Get well soon!

Sorry you're sick, again! Try not to worry about not feeling up to blogging. The time will come when you have the energy and time. Hope you recover quickly!

Feel better soon Tara!

Bummer! This sure seems like a bad year for colds/viruses. So far, I've managed to stay healthy. I'm quite surprised since I work in a bookstore (where you'd think there'd be a lot of germs) and handle the books that sick customers/employees have touched. I've been with B&N for a year next week and haven't been sick ONCE! I'm truly amazed.

Get better soon!

Oh no! I hope you are feeling better soon.

All my sympathies are with you!! My sinuses and all of me. I went back to work today for the first day since Tuesday of last week and I did OK. I am bushed though and am heading to bed (hopefully not to cough half the night away). Take care of yourself!!!

Tara...that sinus stuff sucks...I've had sinus headaches so bad that I wanted to bang my face on the tile wall in the bathroom at school, so I have some idea of your pain. Does a warm pack on your face help? I hope you feel better soon.

I'm so sorry you're sick again! The same thing happened to me...I had an early December cold, then a January cold, closely followed by a February cold. It's been THAT kind of winter, so I really feel for you. Take good care, and whine all you want. It helps!

Sorry to hear you're ill. I hope you're feeling better soon (and can fill us in on your recent reading!).

Tara, your girl started school this year, is that right? That was the year I got sick - when both of mine were in school. It was like my body said, okay, you can be sick now. They are in school all day. :<) I haven't really been sick since. Knock on wood.

Iliana said...

Oh Tara I hope you feel better soon and especially as you are getting ready for a trip. Take care.

Cath said...

Bad sinus day here too. Sick of it as I'm sure are you. My sympathies and I do hope you're soon feeling better.

I am so sorry to hear that you are ill ... I have finally gotten over the same flu which I had for one week then felt better only to relapse into a second week of the same awful illness. It is a miserable flu and I sincerely hope you feel better soon. Sleep all you can! I think this was the only thing that helped me.

i'm missing you in blogland... hope you have recovered, or at least recovered enough to read. ;)

Oooh, sinus trouble is just NO fun at all. I hope you feel better soon, Tara!
