It was inevitable… I’ve been extra careful lately. It is the time of year when you have to keep your guard up at all times, which I thought I had.
To my defense, Chéri is like a toddler. He goes to work (ok, toddlers don’t do that, but bare with me) and he brings back every running disease his coworkers might have. He brings back a runny nose, a good cough, or even a mild fever every once in a while.
Sometimes, I think it is just a way to challenge me. “Let’s see if you can fight this one!” He seems to tell me without speaking a word. But my immune system is pretty dang awesome, I think living in Guinea for five years boosted it enough to face most North American perils!
A few weeks ago, I had a few flash bursts of fever over two days. I thought “He won… I’m finally getting sick!” But no… After spending my weekend in my pjs, wrapped in a blanket I was on my feet again, and ready to go back to work as if nothing had happened.
But this morning, I woke up coughing… And sneezing… And having chills… And feeling congested. Dang!
There is a good side to it though. Since I very rarely get sick, Chéri went for coddling mode. Well, he is planin on coddling me. Hot bath, going for a walk to get fresh air, having soup for supper, and drinking a lot of pure orange juice (my personnal favorite way to fight anything… Vitamin C full throttle!)…
We’ll see how the day goes…
Oh and yeah, I was just here to say I thought I probably wouldn’t post anything substantial, due to stricking cold. But I guess it is not affecting my ability to write all that much, so, forget about it… I’ll probably be back later in the day anyway 😛
A great Sunday to you all Lovelies… If you go out, don’t forget your woolen scarf (unless you live somewhere warm :P)
