You could call me Phil.

This morning was the first morning I've felt like greeting society. And I don't mean greeting society as in wearing a formal gown and practicing my curtsy. No. I mean opening the blinds and taking off my scary, anti-social, sweatpants attire.

I have a cold.

Daughter gave me her cold, which is really my own fault, because I've always taught her to share.

As usual, she was sick for a short time, then quickly got better. My almost 40 year-old body takes much longer to recover. I am not a really whiny sick person. I'm just a sickly sick person. I require more sleep (in addition to my already high requirement), boxes of Puffs with Lotion, and gallons of Diet Coke.

A quick aside. Wouldn't it be cool if they sold Diet Coke by the gallon? Okay, maybe it would lose its fizz fairly quickly, but still. Cool.

As you can see by my wanderings, the cold medicine is beginning to kick in. That, and my third cup of coffee.

I do have a lot of catching up to do. Valentine's Day is nearly here, my house could use a good scrub, and groceries... Groceries? You mean a sub from Quizno's isn't a balanced meal?

You're a nut. In a good way. Really :)

Hope you feel MUCH better soon! I would actually love to eat something from Quiznos right now...

Hope you are well soon.

Sometimes I'd much rather grocery shop at Quizno's. :v)

I'm pretty sure a sub from Quizno's does include all of the four food groups...so you're good.

The problem is when your kids are sick they need love and of course being the wonderful mothers we are we love on them without the notion of self preservation.

Hope you feel better.

I'm not a big Diet Coke drinker, but I could get behind buying Nyquil in a 50 gallon drum.

Diet Coke by the gallon?!? Sign me UP! I'm getting ready to give it up for Lent, so I have my beloved Diet Coke on the brain :)
