The Common Cold

I have been struck with the common cold. It seems that whenever someone says they have a cold you think "aww that sucks", but No it REALLY REALLY is awful. The constant runny nose and stuffy head make for some miserable days ahead. It affects your daily life in the most annoying way. After 5 days of feeling like my ears are going to pop, my head is going to explode, a semi truck is sitting on my head, and someone took sand paper to my nose gives me reason to change my feelings on the common cold. From now on whenever someone says they have a cold or a sinus infection my response will be "I am so sorry that is terrible" because I was worthless this whole week with my cold and sinus infection. Of course the week my kids are stuck home for snow days 4 1/2 days out of 5 this week their mom was a mess. I feel bad for them. I should have been out sledding with them, but instead I spent it layed out on the couch watching them enjoy the 10" of snow we got from the window.

I did manage to go outside a bit and take a few photos of the snow so here they are. It was pretty to look at even though I didn't get to play in it! The Common Cold is a BUMMER!

this one looks like a postcard to me....

Those are really beautiful pictures!! So sorry about your cold! I used to have them from Sept - June (I drive a school bus). For the last 5 years I haven't had much more than a sniffle for a few days. Not sure if it's that I've grown immune to all the germs, or the fact that I have a flu shot every fall.
I do feel for you though!!
