I hope you're all reading this post from the comfort of your own home. I'm not sure how many workplaces observe President's Day these days, but I'm rooting for 3-day weekends wherever we can find them. In fact, a dream of mine is to someday work a 4-day workweek every week. I'd gladly work four 10-hour days instead of five 8-hour days. Who's with me?!
Alas, this week I needed a long weekend more than usual. I picked up an aggressive head-cold a few weeks ago and am still fighting off a lingering cough that just won't quit. Between sleepless nights and coughing fits that leave me sweaty, breathless and mildly incontinent (egads did I just admit that to the public-at-large??), well... I'm desperate. I've tried most OTC options, tea with honey, and cough drops, which keeps things tolerable during the day. By 7pm, however, the cough takes over.
Any cough-suppressing tips out there? I'm under-insured at the moment, so trying to avoid a doctor's trip if at all possible...
OOOH! I do have one interesting mirror-related observation to share: Since losing my sense of smell from the cold, I've felt really sad and numb every time I shower, put on makeup, style my hair, or spritz perfume. I've clearly been over-enjoying in the scents of my various getting-clean-and-ready products in the absence of seeing their effects. I hope this scent-sensitivity continues after I go back to using mirrors again (assuming I regain my sense of smell!). Life is richer when you experience it with all of your senses, no?
Speaking of which: how cute is this H.B. Plumb print of five kittens experiencing the five senses? Note that the kitty representing "sight" is in front of her mirror! Meow!
