Yes this does count as a post!

I signed in and did "create a new post" and typed it in. IT COUNTS! I had planned to tell you about the cupcakes Conor and I made on Saturday. That will wait until another day.

A little off topic, but if you have never clicked over and looked at Smitten Kitchen, then you probably haven't seen her absolutely adorable baby boy. Gosh he is just the cutest baby.

OK, back to the subject.

Just a short one because I'm calling off sick from posting anything creative or funny. I am sick. Have been all weekend, but it just keeps getting worse. I usually sleep a lot when I'm sick. Not this past weekend. 3.5 hours Saturday night; 4.5 or 5 hours last night. Mostly because I CAN'T BREATHE. I have a stuffy nose that only gets worse if I try to lay down. Or is it lie down? I don't really care. Anyway, I can't breathe through my nose when I'm in a horizontal position. So then I breathe through my mouth (HA! mouth breather!) and my already sore throat becomes dry and I begin coughing. It's quite horrible.

Alli even came to check on me this morning as I was coughing so much.

"Mom are you OK?"

"Yes, it's just a cold. I'll be fine."

She gets a space heater and turns in on pointed directly at me.

"What are you doing? Don't turn that on, I'm burning up."

"I thought you said you were cold."

"Oh, no... I said it's just a cold. But thanks anyway."

I believe I have a sinus infection, the worst I've ever had. My face feels like it was a punching bag for someone - feels bruised to the touch. My TEETH hurt. It hurts to chew. I'm miserable. I didn't call off work though, that wouldn't do.

I need to see a doctor. But since I didn't like my family doctor, and I haven't found a new one to go to, I don't have anywhere to go. I suppose I'll have to go to Urgent Care... which I dread because you know it is going to take hours.

Oh, and can I ask you something? If you are eating or have a weak stomach, please don't continue reading. Seriously. I'm sorry it has come to me typing out the word snot on my blog, but WHERE CAN IT ALL POSSIBLY COME FROM?! I don't get it.

Sorry about that. I have wondered a lot this weekend though. So, nothing exciting to read today. Although I guess this is a rather long post. Huh. Definitely counts. Even though I put the word snot in it.

You really do need a Neti Pot to clear those sinuses. Don't be afraid of it. You'll be glad you finally did it. Afrin nasal spray will work too but is VERY addicting and you really shouldn't use it for long. The Neti pot will also help your throat when a little bit gets in.
Those cupcakes were very good. I gave Mom and Betty the two you sent home with me and they liked them too. So, thanks, from all three of us. Feel better soon. Love.

Ohh, poor girl! I had a terrible cold like this when I went to Indiana to visit Naomi and Jerry. It was the worst cold I ever remember having and you are right...snot was a real force to be reckoned with. WHERE does it all come from and how is there still room in your head for the necessary stuff!? I'm so sorry you feel badly, it's just an awful thing! Be well soon, Kid!
