bag o' death

Ohhh, I have a nasty head cold.

I felt it coming on like gangbusters yesterday afternoon. I kid you not. I felt perfectly fine, and then out of nowhere, I felt "the tickle" while we were driving up to MyFavoriteKid's performance with the Youth Symphony. We pulled off the road to hit up a drug store and buy some airborne and zinc before so I could nip it in the bud before I got sick....but I lost.

I am now filling up my personal BagO'Death (at my house, that's what we call the paper bag we stick next to our bed to catch our piles of used/diseased tissues).

I missed Stitches West this year...AGAIN.
Did any of you go???
Tell me all about it!!
I looooove being told stories....especially when I'm sick :-)

I'll read them tomorrow while I'm in bed blowing my nose and filling up my Bag and hopefully slurping on a bowl of chicken soup (if I can get my sh%t together).

Stitches was this weekend? I'm so out of the yarny loop. I know you had mentioned it, but I thought it was next month.

Whatever - I can't deal with all the fumes anyway.

I'm with you on this one, hurry and tell stories everyone!

ps...feel better. I'm fighting off a head cold too. Not to your stage, so hopefully I nipped mine.

I'm sure you've heard about it but the neti pot works wonders. If you aren't up to nasal rinses, saline spray (super cheap at any pharmacy) can make a huge difference.

Seriously though, using one or the other has kept me healthy for the past two years. I just attack it whenever I feel that tickle.

Hope you feel better!

Wish I could have gone. Sorry. No stories to tell you other than "Today I went to the bookstore."
