This pic is what happens when you're up before sun rise!

I barely slept last night. I started coming down with a cold yesterday and was full blown as of last night. I fell asleep around 9pm, was up at 10:15p. Fell asleep again and was up 2 hours later and didn't fall alseep again until about 2am. I was up every hour after that and finally gave up trying to sleep and sat at the table while Hubby had his breakfast & got ready for work. He made me a cup of tea and once he went to work I made some Quaker instant Grits since I need something in my tummy but nothing too much.

BUT, the good news I realized last night? This may be my first cold/bronchitis since 2007! I know I had sinus infections, strep/tonsilitis and a gall bladder attack in 2008 but I don't recall a cold or bronchitis which must mean the iv treatments are working for the most part! I used to get colds and/or bronchitis 4 times a year or more.

Thanks G! I'm on the way to getting better but DAMN! Winter has you crying UNCLE and this cold/bronchitis has me crying UNCLE! I took Nyquil (out of sheer desperation and misery) and it did not knock me out in the least! Cursed air plane cooties! For once my sinuses didn't bother me in the least on either (nearly 7 hour) flight but I got horrendously sick within 24 hours of getting home (which hasn't happened before).

Now what is a nice Jersey girl like you going eating GRITS? I thought those were for Southern Belles? I'm sorry you are so sick!

I'm feeling ever so slightly better but I'm still on my arse from this. It's pretty bad.

Teri, I am an eclectic, non stereo-typical Jersey Girl who not only likes grits, but can & doesn't mind pumping her own gas, lol!!! (I think in another life, or on another plane (not airplane), I was/am southern! So many things southern resonate for me.)
