Welcome Back?

Some flu, some bronchitis... coughing, bruised ribs, fevers ... that's how our two months have been. It amazes me that I still woke myself up coughing last night, two months after coughing for the first time. I will say that Delsym is a miracle cough syrup, that tomato soup and saltines is the only palatable thing at many points, and that my husband and I are very lucky to have each other to take care of us!

Needless to say, not much has happened on the house. There is a door leaning against the water heater closet waiting to be installed and a new router and table received as a birthday present waiting to be used for the first time. The new old front door is still waiting half stripped in the garage. Even the backyard was left in a state of half completion... leaves need raked and composted, weeds mowed, tools put away.

I'll raise a glass of orange juice to continued improving health... and to getting back to our Tiny Old House!

Yay! Back again! I was wondering what had happened.

Hope you're totally well. I know what it's like to feel you're coughing up your immortal soul.

Just found your blog... I had the same symptoms from the week before Thanksgiving until the the third wek of January- even dislocated some ribs. I hate to say I'm "glad" someone else was that sick, but... you know... it sucked.

I'm enjoying your blog!
