In a Flash...

I just wanted to jump on here real quick to let everyone know I'm not dead, although that prospect is looking more and more appealing as time goes on. Also, I have much to post about, Christmas, visits with old friends, New Year's....but I also have bronchitis, which I've never had before, and which is turning out to be No Fun at All, so I will have to post all those goodies when I'm feeling a little more human, and a little less like I exist only to cough. (I now understand how Renae cracked her rib last year) On the up side, all the hacking is seriously good for my abs. Really. I don't think they've been this toned since before I had babies, and I think I've lost some inches even.
Hey, there has to be an upside right? I can't be going through all this suffering for no reward, that would just be Sick and Wrong.

I feel your pain Liz... I usually end up with bronchitis at least once a year. And I know exactly what you mean about the toned abs from coughing!
A tip for the coughing though... don't laugh, it works. Take some vic's vapor rub and put it on the bottom of your feet, some toasty warm socks and go to bed. For some reason, it tones the coughing down enough to get to sleep (or it does for me anyway). I tried everything when a friend from work suggested this and truly, I felt that the woman should have been a saint!
Love your attitude! You always seem to brighten my day!

Some one told me about the vapor rub on your feet last year too. I really couldn't tell the difference. Hm.

I put vicks vapor rub directly under my nose when I have a cough, and on the soles of my feet, and my chest! I hate coughing more than anything.

Get better soon!

i herd that if you get the toenail from a siberian tree frog, crush it into powder, mix it with the vics, put it on you rear and then dance naked in the light of the full moon you will.... look like an idiot.
