I'm back. Still have my cold from hell. Although it's kinda gone from hellish to more normal cold. Well, insofar as I have a leaky faucet for a nose, sinus pressure, stuffed ears, and general fatigue. At least I don't have the sore throat from hell that usually felt like shards of glass at the back of my throat every time I swallowed and the nasty throat gunk and icky nasty mucus of the not-so-clear kind. So I really do feel much better. That might also be due to the horse pills I've been taken since things had gotten so bad I went to Urgent Care up there for relief. Where I learned I had an ear infection in one ear and lots of sinus congestion (my ears were so stuffed I couldn't hear right, things sounded like they were going through some synthesizer. It was weird).
But although I was really sick for most of the vacation, I still enjoyed it. I love visiting my in-laws. It's a great place to relax.
Got some great gifts that I can't wait to use. Also read a lot.
From Baghdad, With Love by Jay Kopelman and Melinda Roth
Hell's Belles by Jackie Kessler
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason
Venus Envy by Shannon McKelden
Eye of Heaven by Marjorie M. Liu
Also started Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot and a paranormal/SF romance e-ARC.
I hope to have posts up on all of them soon. Also listened to a Bill Bryson audiobook on the way back from ND. It was good.
I also need to invest in Kleenex.
