Well, it seems that the nasty cold that's been hovering in our house for days is finally on its way out.
I've done my best to keep it away (who gives care to the Care Giver?) by taking Emergen-C, and Cold-Eeze and I can feel that it's just skimming over me. I've considered my recent activities of picking up tissues and going back-and-forth from the store for supplies my new exercise regime. Lily, our 11, er... our 12 year old (just happened in December. Still getting used to it) has been so strong through her sniffles that she made her way back to school on Jan. 2nd.
Katie, our 14, er... 15 year old (she also just became a new number in December) has fallen hard to this cold. Last night I think her body let me know that she had had too much medicine and her stomach hurt worse than the cold! Oh, bad nurse! I have a sensitivity to the zinc in Cold-Eeze and I think she does too.
Katie made it to school this morning and felt a bit anxious about missing a couple of days. Right before she got out of the car she turned to me with a surprised look and said, "I've forgotten my locker combination!" Oh boy, I can remember that panic. (What am I talking about? Some days I forget passwords to websites!) She took a deep breath, then forged ahead.
I am so ready for wellness to return. How have you fared during this cold & flu season?
