Mother-effing cold

I fought the cold and the cold won. Bastard.

I was so sure I could kick it. I used my neti faithfully, doubled up on the Progressive Vitamin C, and went to bed early. That's not totally true, but I did watch Pineapple Express which I thought was going to totally suck and I laughed out loud many times throughout. Rather odd, my husband thought perhaps I was drunk and perhaps I was, but it was still funny. Point being that I thought laughing was good for the immune system.

Even though I felt like ass yesterday I went to yoga and that part of the day was awesome. [If you can, go back and re-read that sentence and sing the "awesome" part because that's how it's supposed to read. Awe-some, like that.]

I'm going to drag myself to Mysore tonight but I have no expectations whatsoever that I will a) be able to breathe through my nose and b) enjoy headstand.

In hopes of a brief nap while the baby was down I allowed the five year old to do my hair. This involves her getting out all my "product," as she calls it, and spraying copious amounts in and then patting it down and complimenting me on my very "smooth" hair.

It was only after I realized one of the products she used was an aloe vera after sun skin care, but no mind. It washed out.

If we weren't mostly strangers I would post the photo of me, nine or ten (perhaps eleven) months preggo with the second, in July, with incredibly high humidity (in my city that rhymes with fun we don't normally have humidity so I don't know how to describe it other than ridiculous) when I let the child do my hair and then put makeup on me. A few of you have seen it, and hopefully still love me. For those who haven't I don't think it would be good for our relationship.

I hate colds, too! I've had one for about three weeks. It just won't go away. Here's to hoping you feel better!

I would LOVE to see that picture! There's nothing like Aloe for the hair! LOL! You are priceless!

Fine, but I'm imagining the picture whether you show it or not.

Hope you get better real soon!
