I'd Like Breathing For Four Hundred, Alec

Whomever suggested using this:


With these:


Is a life saver. Two thirty in the morning, after trying to sleep in a chair, crawling back into a cold bed, hacking up a lung, blowing nose repeatedly, my Hunny grabbed the chest rub and told me to grab a pair of socks. He'd heard somewhere that coating the bottoms of the feet and wearing socks to bed would help.

It did. It really did. I slept.

Am I better today? Jury's still out on that one. But sleep ensured that I'm not worse. Yay!

Oh! If I manage to get my voice back by tomorrow night, I plan on video recording myself reading Cajun Night Before Christmas and posting it here for Christmas Eve. Between that and my husband's Polish roots, I sometimes sign my artwork Polish Coonass. It works for me.

Until I write again ...

To Polish Coonass:
You have a first prize Hunny! Smart and loving and kind enough to let you go to bed with socks and smelling of chest rub. Get Better! That's an order. I'm counting the minutes until I can hear Cajun Night Before Christmas.

Being sick during the holidays is such a drag, so I'm sorry you got it this year. However, I've filed that bit of advice in the area of my brain that still works, so maybe I'll remember it when I need it...

Hope you feel better by tomorrow or at least by Christmas Eve!!!

I had no idea that that would work, but I can kinda see it!

Sorry you've been sick -- and just before Christmas! You'll be better soon. I just know it.
