The worst part about a runny nose is the fact that when you lay down all that crap pools there in the back of your throat and sleep is all but impossible. The last two nights have been really rough. I fall asleep for about 30 minutes only to wake up gasping for air. Then I’m awake for an hour. Then sleep for thirty minutes to wake up gasping for air. Rinse, repeat. The really bad part is that I take the Zoloft at night because it makes me sleepy. So I’m all drugged feeling but I can’t sleep. Horrible.
At 5am this morning Ben got up and made me some hot tea. It was a very nice geasture… even though I think he was just tired of my constant tossing and turning. 😉 It took awhile to kick in but at about 6:00 I was able to fall asleep and managed to stay asleep till 7:30. I told myself I’ll get up in 10 minutes. When I woke back up it was 8:09. We have to be out the door at NO LATER than 8:20 to get Cassidy to school on time.
I got her dressed, did her hair, got myself dressed and made her lunch and snack in 10 minutes and we made it out the door on time. She got to school just as the teacher was telling the kids to sit down in the circle to start the day. *whew*
In other news, I have an interview tomorrow at 11:00 so today it’s all about kicking this colds ass. I need a job, so the cold has got to go. Wish me luck!

I feel your pain. Yesterday I woke up with a headache and stuffed nose but in my left side only. Last night I tossed and turned and sweated out a fever. Today my whole head hurts and I am supposed to go to my cousin’s graduation. Ew…colds suck! Take care of yourself, get better and good luck on the interview!
