i caught the sniffles.

i've been posting this month on things i'm grateful for (i mean, it is one of my very favorite holidays next week. plus i have many things to be grateful for.) i woke up this morning with a runny nose and a sore throat. i grabbed these on my way out the door this morning. so today, while i don't have too much to say, i am putting these things to good use:

i am grateful for (soft) tissues (which these aren't, necessarily, but it's all i've got to work with right now, so i'll take 'em). i'm grateful for cough drops that don't taste like plastic. i'm grateful for DayQuil (which i've obviously already taken this morning). and somewhat randomly, i'm grateful i can swallow large horse pills without difficulty. because that's what those are. horse pills. and some people (named my husband) have a hard time with that. (one of the only) benefit from getting my tonsils out? sure.


  1. yes, dayquil pills are huge! i always have to psyche myself up before taking them. and soft tissues are something i'm very grateful for too, this week! hope you start feeling better soon :)

  2. I woke up sick this morning too! Aches and chill, ear ache and sore throat. I couldn't breathe around 4am because my throat was so sore and swollen. I felt perfectly fine yesterday, then this morning, bam. Feel better! I'll be pissed if we're sick on Thanksgiving.

  3. I commend you on being thankful, even in the midst of sickness. Hope you start feeling better, especially with the start of the holidays next week!
