Coming Down With "Something"...

One by one, my family's been socked with "something"... I don't think it's the flu because there's no fever, just a yucky nose and throat thing. But it's bad. And it's coming for me. I can feel it in my throat now. (My Brit husband calls this "having a throat" as in "I've got a bit of a throat." Well, yeah.) We seem to have timed this well, though... he was suffering more on Monday and Tuesday, I'm just getting it now... so somehow the boys have been clothed and fed and brought to and fetched from school this week.

I've always wished that I were one of those people who lost their appetites when they got sick... I hate it when I can't taste what I'm eating, but I seem to be able to eat- nooooo problem! Feh.


  1. When I have a sore throat, I enjoy some tea and honey.. man oh man it really helps....
    Sorry that everyone is getting something.... hoping it gets better sooner!!

  2. I hope your family feels better soon!

  3. How is everything going?
    Feeling any better?
    How is the family??

  4. Hope you are feeling better soon... Never good to not be able to eat though as the weight lost is usually put right back on quickly... so eat what you can even if it doesn't taste good to you or has not taste at all. Your body needs the nourishment.

  5. I too hope you are feeling good... lots of fluids!!!!

  6. Thanks for stopping by, Shelly, Arcticmal and Ladybug- I dropped out of sight for a few days, just didn't have the energy to blog or comment. We are trying to down fluids, echinacea and zinc tablets, yet the colds remain!
