Awards and hacking

Thanks to Trying to Stay Calm for sending me flowers and a blog award. My first! What a sweetie.


No I'm not talking about computer hacking. I'm talking about coughing and hacking.

Which is what I have been doing pretty much for the past three days. I'm tired of it. The coughing woke me up and kept me up last night.

I actually got an email from Ty's aunt with some information about Vick's Vapor Rub and coughing. Supposedly if you put it on the soles of your feet and cover your feet with socks it will calm any cough. While in theory this sounds good, I do not know if I can put it into practice.

The thought of having to put that on my feet and then put socks on? I can't stand to have things on my feet when I sleep. Even in the middle of winter you can find at least on of my legs uncovered and unfettered when I sleep. I guess I could try it while I'm awake to see if it works though.

I do need to go and get some more cough drops though. They seem to help a little bit.

That's so funny! I almost always have to have socks on my feet. If my husband isn't out of town, I usually don't, because the bed is warm, but if he's not there, it's too cold!

I can't sleep with socks on either. I hope you feel better soon. I've had a cold for the past two weeks, and sitting around the house blogging is not making it go away like I thought it would.
