The good thing about being a writer is I don't have to call in sick. I can push through (with the help of Alavert-D and Motrin). Although, I did take a short nap when I started dozing off while reading through my proposal--hoping it was a reaction to the illness or meds and not a reflection on the writing! :)
By evening, I wanted to whine a little and have someone to take care of me, wanted a little pampering. Unfortunately, moms don't usually get much of that. My husband, at least, did have compassion on me and brought home dinner. He brought it from our Wednesday night church supper, so I even got dessert! :)
How do you deal with a common cold? Any recommendations for favorite cold medicines or tips for dealing with the congestion?
