I was all set for autumn. I was ready to bake, roasted my first vegetables and contemplated when I would get my flu shot. I even scored terrific new socks at a super discount at Bloomingdale's. Apples: check, Pumpkin recipes researched: check and gloves rediscovered.
I had a headache -- rare for me these days -- last week, but took two Advil and went on my merry way. Saturday morning my throat was scratchy, but I had a ticket for a benefit fashion show chaired by a dear friend. I couldn't miss that and hopped on the train. I skipped the gym yesterday, but figured I'd be back to my peppy self this morning. But at three o'clock this morning I woke up barking like a seal, and it continued on through the morning.
I'm thankful for the walk-in medical center two blocks from my house. After reading the latest issue of "People" I saw the same doctor I'd seen last spring for a similar ailment, though I'd caught that a little sooner. I've got my change of season bronchitis and even my spiffy Dalmatian socks aren't cheering me up. I'm barking a little less thanks to cough medicine, but I'm drippy and you can just call me Sneezy. I'm optimistic this will run a quick course, but I could use a hug. Virtual is actually the best, because I don't want to give my sneezy barking to anyone else.
One nice thing I have noticed in the last few days is a renewed zest for blogging. I've been remiss for the last few months, but I'm feeling a little zing when I think of things I'd like to write about. While my chest and throat don't feel especially good, getting back my blogging mojo is a great feeling. Next on my list is a lot more catching up with all of your blogs.
As ever thanks for visiting and hope your week is healthy!
