Wherein I continue to beat a dead horse...

I'm still sick!!!!

I'm so mad I feel like kicking something, but there's nothing to kick and anyway that would use up too much of my precious energy that I'm seriously lacking. So I'll just rant instead.

Dude, I coughed so much last night I ended up sleeping sitting up the couch because I didn't want to keep Matthew up. Finally around 2, after feeding Sophia, I drank about a gallon of cough syrup, managed to keep it down (stuff makes me nauseous) and feel asleep on the couch again. At some point I dragged myself back to bed. Yeesh. I guess I should have taken the medicine sooner, but I hate the way it makes me feel.

Normally I wouldn't complain over being sick for just a week. Okay, yeah, I would. But some of my symptoms don't seem to be going away. Namely, this bloody cough! I hate, hate, HATE having a cough.

In other news, Elijah was sick yesterday. My little cheerful man was moping around the house all day complaining of a sore throat. This morning? Bam! He's fine! What I wouldn't give for that immune system. Sophia has been back to normal for about two days now, which is so nice. She's been happy and playful again.

Now if could just get better, oh and Matthew is still sick too. Bugger!

So yes, beating a dead horse...sorry. I have nothing else to talk about.

I've edited, erm, two pages of my book so far! It's crazy how long it took me to do that, about an hour. This is why I hate editing! On the other hand it was nice to take sentences that I felt kind of "meh" about and turn them into something with more punch. Hopefully I can keep up with it. I obviously haven't been working on anything new since I've been sick, so editing is the least I can do.


  1. Ugh. I hate to "warn" you of this, but it sounds like y'all got what we have had here. First Grace got it, then Lily got it (but not very bad, thank the Lord). Then Jeff got it. And finally, a week or so after they were all finally all better - I got it. It hit me the hardest and I am still coughing. The cough is so bad that my ribcage got inflammed to the point where I can't hold my arms up over my head. So... I hope you feel better soon... but I got sick 3 weeks ago, my other sypmtoms have been gone for a week and a half, and I'm still coughing. And I feel the same way about cough syrup, but I had to take some of what the doctor prescribed Grace (it's safe, I checked, but I didn't have the time to get myself to the doctor with all of the appointments we've had for Lily).

  2. Whenever I get sick, its always a week and a half to two weeks. It does suck. :( My Mom did give me these 1,000 mg vitamin C tablets and her and my brother swear by them. She said take one on the onset of a cold, and keep taking one a day. I did it with a cold that started to come on last week (scratchy throat) and it worked! Just a suggestion!
