I was coughing like crazy and by the end of the day, I was trying to not breath because it triggered coughing. I had Vicks all over my chest and throat and tried the old wive's tale of putting it on the soles of your feet and putting on socks. Somehow I managed to sleep with three pillows but woke up miserable...really miserable....the miserable where I just want to put on baggy sweat pants and curl up with cheesy movies. But I don't own sweat pants and darling daughter has no school today, so I ran a mile at a slow and steady pace, gonna shower, try to convince her a couple of kid Redbox movies is a good idea, and make her the center point of my day today.
And that coughing? I didn't cough once during my run and I felt good. However, as I type now, I am coughing. Darn cold.
Today I am grateful for:
- Not having to go to work
- My darling daughter's enthusiastic play with a shrinking balloon
- Vicks rub
- Colorful socks
- Redbox even if it means seeing the same movie for the 100th time
