Flashback Whatever: Being Sick

I was sick all last week with that crud that's going around. One night I just couldn't sleep because of the sinus pressure (even with Niquil and Ibuprofen) so I got a dish cloth wet, heated it in the microwave and laid there with it on my face. It was the only thing that brought relief.

It reminded me of when I was little. A wet washcloth helped everything from a fever to a sore throat. I just felt better with a wet wash cloth applied to the effected area. Maybe it was more the love of the one applying, shaking out to get it to the right temperature and reapplying.

Thanks Mom!

PS I am trying to get caught up, prepare for a birthday party and another test next week so please excuse my lack of blogging. I will return!

I am glad you are feeling better!

I put washcloths on my kids' heads when they are sick too. It must help.

And thanks for teaching me how to blog and set it to post another day! I did a whole bunch on the weekend and now it looks like I've been busy, but it was really only one session. :)

Wet washcloths do seem to have some kind of inexplicable magic at my house. Glad to know I'm in such good company!

I'm glad that you are feeling better! We will miss you a lot when we move. But we will visit and Skype. Do you have a webcam? Olivia needs to be able to see her Grandma and Grandpa!

Oh, I just remembered that you have a Mac, so we are good. :)
