Day two

The first two days of the new year haven't been that great. I'm fighting a new cold, on top of the old cold I was still recovering from. Last night I was so fed up with not being able to breath through my nose that I was actually taking medication. I started with a day time cold remedy, which did nothing.
Then I moved on to the hard stuff, Sudafed, which did nothing.
So I waited about two hours, trying not to combine drugs, and took some Musinex-D.
Which cleared up my sinuses, AND kept me awake till 5:00 in the morning.
I then awoke at 8, bright and chipper, (irony) and had a coughing spell, which ended with me pulling something in my back.

I am not complaining though, well maybe I am, but I am not letting it get me down. I am trying to remain positive, a cold isn't the end of the world, tonight I'll take some night time cold medicine, sleep like a baby and enjoy the last day of vacation with my family. I've gotten used to having my kids and husband home for the last 11 days. It's been wonderful in fact. We need times like this to reconnect.

It works like clockwork, doesn't it, that we always get sick when we are on vacation or have a long weekend at last?
