I never get sick.  Seriously, it's been years since I even had a cold.  So two weeks ago, when Emily got a cold, I didn't worry about it.  She snuffled and honked.  I went about my business.  Then I started noticing a tickle in my throat.  I still didn't worry, confident that my body would fight it off.

Long story made short, if I'd just given up and gotten sick when she did, I'd be over it by now.  Instead I'm sitting here coughing, with a fever and plugged sinuses and a voice scratchy enough that people look at me with alarm when I talk.  Ugh.  I must remember not to be smug.

Tax season is a terrible time to have a blurry brain.

I was amused to get a call from someone at my former employer today, telling me she's giving someone my name.  This happens every few months.  They have a premium office that's supposed to take care of this kind of thing, but apparently they're not interested, so they send them to me.  It's a huge compliment, and it's good money, so I don't mind at all.

Now I'm off to bed.  I was up all last night coughing, so here's hoping for a good night's sleep!


  1. Coughs that keep you awake are the WORST. I am expecting to get something in the germ factory of my school. Lots of sinus stuff, strep and stomach issues going around. None of it I want!!
