Update January 20, 2014

On Wednesday I worked all day (had a great day) and then had a meeting at 7:00 pm. Meeting ended an hour later and I exited the building in perfect health, ready to enjoy the next four days off. I walked five minutes to my car and as I unlocked the car door, I sneezed. 

That was the start. By the time I closed the door of the car and started the engine, my nose was stuffed, my head ached, my eyes were watering and I was starting to ache all over. Home thirty minutes later, all I wanted was aspirin and hot tea and a warm blanket. 

I thought I was about to have the flu but it never progressed. The same symptoms have been with me for the past four days and finally I seem to be on the recovering side.  Yesterday my nose was as red as Rudolph's but today it is starting to heal and has not dripped for a few hours. I felt well enough today to cook, work in my office and exercise for 30 minutes. 

I hope to have some time to write posts this week. I have work the next four days and I am busy with several projects but I wanted to post now just to say my food has been clean. Being sick does not give me a prescription to nosh or baby myself with sweets.

If it did, I wouldn't try so hard to stay well, would I? 

I hope you are all well.

Very glad it did not progress. Glad you are on the mend. More snow here.

Hi Jane, I think I had this very same version of the cold about 10 days ago. It never did get very bad. I hope you recuperate very fast. :D
