I don’t know if the common cold and the summer cold are the same viral animal, but for some reason, the summer cold always manages to feel way, way worse.
So, it is that I’ve been sick–not the worst cold I’ve ever had, but at times it’s felt like my own sinus system has set me adrift upon some “mucus-y” sea or, worse yet, has held my head under. (To see/read my partner Sara’s post about my being ill (“Blogger Down”), click here.)
Clearly, it’s not going to kill me, but there have been moments in the past few days when I’ve almost wished it would. (I exaggerate only a little.)
Cold medicine aside, I’m high on nothing other than our shared enthusiasm and my own efforts to avoid drowning. (Where does all that mucus come from anyway?)
And in all honesty–you readers rock my world—or your comments have rocked my cold recovery, at least. As soon my sinuses subside, I’ll be back at the staircase project and back with another update.
In the meantime, wish me safe sailing on these sneezing seas of phlegm and fluid.
And, while you’re at it, tell me how blogging has made you feel like part of a caring community. What’s the biggest bonus blogging or social media have brought to your life?
