I have been fighting a cold ‘tooth and nail’ since Sunday and I’ve lost.
What the heck does tooth and nail mean anyway?? I dunno, but it has been rattling around in my head all week. And I am a loser.
The cold won on Thursday morning.
I had been drinking tons of this vitamin C supplement:
And yes, I got the kind with joint juice in it. (I swear, my hostile knee feels better!)
I’ve also been diligent with my meds. AKA:
I ‘ve got plenty of rest, drank NO wine and even worked out 3 days this week.
The lesson here: If a cold virus wants you, just give in and get it over with. Go ahead, lick the germy escalator handrails at the mall. twice.
Now, after all that medical advice, please send me your insurance card and co-pay. I accept cash. dirty, germy cash.
And now for a lesson in environmental awareness.
You know how many times I have told you people to stop using plastic bags? tons and tons of times, I am sick of saying it really.
See this pretty face? Notice the two pretty eyes?
Well, on Friday night of last week, one of those two pretty eyes were almost ruined by a plastic bag.
During a band competition, Linds and her dance-mates were sitting in the stands waiting for their performance time. One of her friends (earth killer) was walking around with a plastic bag…all willy nilly and accidentally hit Linds in the eye with the corner of the bag.
It hurt her.
And several hours later… after she performed on the field, the pain really came to fruition.
Her eye was bloody red (broken blood vessels) and she was a’hurting. (scratched cornea)
After some meds and cold compresses, her eye was much better by Monday morning.
(or blind anyone accidentally on purpose)
