#sol15 March 29 Waiting for a break in the action

I should have guessed this was coming.  Lots of people have had it.  Yet, I'm ready for this spring-cleaning-catching-up-break.  My list of "things to do" is long and  I want to "do" them.


It started with a dry cough late last night as I was trying to figure a way to help those stuck on our local windy parkway in a spring snow storm. There was nothing I could do to help them or to stop the cough.

It was clear in the middle of the night that my cough had turned into headache, chills, and a scratchy throat.  I did an Airborne or three, felt better, and went back to be. There was nothing I could do to stop the inevitable.

As I type this morning with hot tea (with lemon and honey) in hand, it is clear to me that there is nothing I can do to stop this cold that probably was lurking for weeks waiting for a "break in the action."  However, I will aggressively treat it with Airborne.  I will drink lots of hot tea.

This will, hopefully, be "here-today-gone-tomorrow-smart" cold.  While I sip my tea, I'll ponder how how a cold virus with no brain and no education can be so smart!  That just might be the answer that will turn our schools around!

I'm a big Zicam user & have never heard of Airborne so looked it up, very similar stuff. Hope it is a 'smart cold' & does its duty which is to disappear quickly!

Airborne works wonders for me, Anita - hope it does for you, too!

Oh no! That's the worst - having time off and then getting sick. You're probably right that it was lurking and waiting. I have successfully used Wellness Formula from Source Naturals. It is expensive, but it really does work. Feel better soon!
