Well, here I am, sick again. It's only been 2 months since my last scuffle with cold germs, but thanks to Saturday's Rock School show I'm down and out again. I am almost positive that I caught whatever I have on Saturday, as children are well known harbingers of illness. And Josh and I are both sick, and both started feeling bad at the same time, which means we probably caught it at the same time. We've never been sick at the exact same time before, so we'll see how well we can handle this. Not a very good week for it either- Friday I'll have to leave work a little early so I can get gifts for Rylee and Alec & Kim, get my hair cut, and then head to Steph & Rodney's for party prep. I'm gonna stay the night with them and then Saturday is more prep and the big party. Sunday we're doing an early Thanksgiving dinner with Josh's dad's family and I've got two veg dishes to prepare. I think I've decided on roasted zucchini with thyme and parmesan green beans. Everything else on the menu is meaty or starchy, so I think greens the way to go. As you can see there isn't a lot of room for wallowing in a giant pile of tissues. I've got to do my best battle on. I'm eating my fruits and veg to try and help build up my defenses- apple at breakfast, lentil soup, raw broccoli, celery, carrots, and cucumber at lunch. And a nice glass of cranberry juice in addition to all the water I'm chugging. Before long I'll get to have a comforting cup of peppermint tea. With all that goodness going in me it shouldn't belong before the germs are moving out!

I always like peppermint tea when I feel sick too. Hope you get well soon.
