Just call me T-Puff

How is it that I can go to bed feeling fine and wake up the next morning with 20 additional lbs of...well, whatever it is fills your sinusii, in my head? I am squinting because my eyes are so puffy, my cheeks feel huge, and I keep saying, "Huh??" when people talk to me because I can't hear. If I turn my head too fast, it takes a second for my brain to stop spinning. OH! And when I get this clogged up, I have the ability to blow air out of the corner of my eyes. It's great! As soon as I lock the doors here at work, I am heading over to Longs to pick up some heavy duty sinus medication. I don't care what I get, just something that will bring my head up off the floor and get rid of this pounding headache.

So! I think I will spend the rest of the day knitting around and around on my shawl. I would post another picture of it but what's the point. It's a crumpled mess of yarn on a needle! I am on row 163 out of 189 and am up to 1176 sts on the needle. I am still living up to my promise of not working on anything else until the shawl is complete. The one knit Christmas gift I am working on? Well, it will turn into a Happy 2007! gift. :)

Poor thing.

Apparently it is going around!

Sudafed and advil can do wonders. Also, try a nasal spray...it'll clear it up good (especially at night)...just don't use it for more than 3 days.

Also, I popped tons of Vitamin C and odorless garlic pills, and I didn't get a sinus infection, so if you're prone to them, try that (I haven't made it through a cold without getting an SI in years, but this time I did).

I hope you feel better soon!
