And that's the way it is...

In Japan, they have a saying, "only a fool doesn't catch a cold."

So, I have a cold. I suppose that, in a way, that's a good thing, because it means I'm not a fool.

I blame my brother. He had a cold when he came to my mom's birthday party on Sunday. He tried really hard not to touch anything or anyone. But I have a cold anyway.

All I really want to do is sleep (and sneeze). But there's a lot to do. I could make a list. But I'm too tired.

And, Scout goes back to the vet this afternoon for her check-up.

I wish you could just rest, Diane. You're in my prayers...and Scout, too, for sure!

Jiff said...

Feel better soon!
It's hard to have a cold when it's not possible to nurse it....

Prayers for healing!

Rowan The Dog said...

Sorry about your cold. Hot Earl Grey and chicken soup for you. And, most of all, I am hoping you can get some time for resting and healing.

Keep us posted on Scout.

Lindy and Rowan

PS - Rowan is formulating his answers to the interview questions. I'll help him type them up as soon as he'd finished.

Diane, summer colds are the worst. Try to rest and be gentle with yourself. Scout getting better should help how you feel!

Pastor Eric said...

Get well soon and take care.

It's all been said above, but let me join the chorus. May this pass quickly.

Ditto ditto and ditto.

Here's some virtual kleenex, chicken soup and Hot Earl Grey tea that Rowan suggested.

Hope you and Scout are better soon.

What they said... Oh Diane, I send you healing thoughts. And for Scout too.

Get as much sleep as you can... which is probably not so easy.

Diane said...

thank you for you kind thoughts and especially virtual kleenex. Got hot peppermint (no earl grey right now) from Husband. Had the cold-inspired headache which made me feel even worse, but I really slept this evening and am doing a little better.
Scout is healing well, according to vet. he gave us an idea for food (have you heard of Sojourner farms? -- part home cooked or raw meat, and their supplements) and said he thought she needed more exercise, too. so we'll be working on that.

the good thing about a cold, they are always time limited. The bad thing, not being able to breath.

Rest well, drink lots of hot tea (if you like that), feel better soon!

(((diane))) i can hug you virtually without getting sick. i'd hug you for real anyhow... if you'd appreciate it.

feel better soon!
