Under the weather//

When I woke up this morning, I knew that I was coming down with a cold. Well, actually I was pretty sure last evening. I hit the vitamin c but it has not made much difference. I hate having a cold. I feel yucky. I stopped on the way home and got wonton soup. I have spent the evening sleeping on the couch. I KNOW I will be at all night or at least from 3AM on. This is not something I am looking forward to as there is nothing on tv at that hour except maybe poker!

Sue posted pictures on her blog of the first day of school. I can't believe that my little Emma rides the school bus. (A little bit of my history now). I loved the first day of school when the girls were little. The long summer was over and we were back into the routine. One year i even toasted the school bus driver as he arrived to take all the neighborhood kids off to Ben Franklin. But this is different. I couldn't believe that I actually got a lump in my throat when looking at the pictures. I guess I will just chalk it up to old age!

The heat goes on and I am going to bed! Maybe at 3AM I will just get up and sew.

So sorry you're feeling crummy! Try a little hot toddy - it may not help the cold much, but it WILL help you sleep!
