I'm tired

I've got a terrible flu. Swine flu? Who knows. All I know is that it's wearing out it's welcome. I've slept tons, which usually helps, but still this thing hangs on.

Here are a few necessities I've used to get through it so far:
  • Rosebud Salve (for the Rudolph nose. Apply generously every night and your nose won't get so dry and irritated. If you don't have this already, get some. I use this stuff every day for dry lips and cuticles. It's amazing.)
  • Puffs Plus Kleenex
  • Excedrin (For the blazing headache)
  • Tylenol Cold (When the runny nose is out of hand)
  • Robitussin (When the cough and chest congestion sets in)
  • Listerine (To soak my toothbrush in between frequent brushings)
  • Visine (To sooth burning eyes. Come to think of it, maybe I have the plague.)
  • Cold, damp washcloth (for the forehead when the fever was approaching 103)
  • Cranberry juice mixed with 7-Up (Ginger Ale is preferable but apparently the rest of the world got hold of before I could. I've pretty much lived on this concoction for the past 4 days)
  • Coal Miner's Daughter, Smokey & The Bandit and Vampyr (I know It's a strange line up but this is what cable has had to offer during waking hours.)
  • The Hunger Games (I seem to read a book every time I'm really sick. This is what I read this time. I liked it.)
  • The most comfy bed in the world
I hope you don't get this flu but if you do I hope the above helps you through it.

Oh, Lucy! I'm sorry you're so sick. I guess a movie tonight is out of the question, eh? Get better soon -- by Friday, at the latest!
