My brain's a bit "fuzzified" due to a head cold. (Apparently the "coining silly words" part of my brain turns on when my sinuses are full.)
So here's how I'm dealing with the cold:
1. DayQuil (well, CVS Pharmacy's cheap-o generic equivalent.) Dudes, I'd forgotten how great this stuff is. I mean, for 4 1/2 years straight I was pregnant and/or nursing, and now, for the last few months, the entire world of legal pharmaceuticals has opened up anew for me. No more reading labels and Googling as I worry about meds hurting the baby in me or getting into breast milk. I spent the morning today (yesterday by the time you are reading this) just dealing with the icky cold while I did exciting things like Twittering and cleaning my bathrooms. It wasn't fun. Once I got out there and got some meds, I felt halfway human again.
2. Comfort food. I've got a chicken barley soup of my own devising, sitting in the CrockPot. Let's hope it does its job nicely tonight.
3. Brownies. When the kids go down for their nap, I'm going to make some brownies. I've been assured by my friends on Twitter that brownies are vital elements of the healing process. I admit, I did ask them to tell me that, and openly invited them to lie. And I'm choosing to believe them.
4. Whining. A well-placed phone call to the hubby and a well-timed blog post should not be discounted in one's cold-fighting repertoire.
Hope your body is handling the cold and flu season better than mine is!
