And now we have the whining

Wow, have I had the worst cold ever. I know nobody ACTUALLY cares about the details, but I'll tell you them anyway. It's nice to vent sometimes.

Last Friday (sorry, make that the Friday before last), I was so tired I ended up passing out during Elliot's naptime and when I woke up, I woke up with the worst body aches, fever, headache and chills. This lasted for two days. Then my fever broke, and the sore throat showed its head. That was a nice period. There was the one night where I didn't fall asleep until 3am because my nose was so blocked up I could only breathe out of my mouth, which was aggravating my throat. Once my sore throat became semi-bearable, I ended up with an earache. Fun times. I've been to the doctors, all I've heard is 'let the viral infection RUN ITS COURSE' Great. I wasn't particularly looking for an antibiotic handout, but I would have liked something. A token something. Currently, of course, my nose is still blocked, I still have a cough, and my glands are so swollen that it's difficult to speak and/or swallow food. It's been rough. Plus, the lurg has now been passed onto both Elliot and N in varying forms. We are a lovely house of sickness. Hence my absense.

Well, that and Harry Potter. N was superkind (I swear I have the best husband ever) and went out at midnight to buy me the Deathly Hallows. I didn't want to use the computer or look at any blogs until I'd finished the book in case someone accidentally spoiled the ending for me. Let me just say, whew, did I need to carry a whole box of tissues around with me. I quite enjoyed it. More later, I'm sure. It should be back to the previously scheduled blogging routine around here...
