esotsm sleeping

Taking it easy

Been sick the last few days, so things have been quiet around here. I have to say, this is the weirdest cold I've ever had. I have none of the outward symptoms--no coughing, no sneezing, no runny nose. My throat isn't even sore, just... sticky. :P But I have been completely exhausted for the last three days. Like, sitting at the computer for an hour makes me tired enough that I need to lie down and do nothing for another hour.

I can't really complain, though. When I first noticed the throat stickiness (always my first sign of an impending cold) I was kind of worried because I'm booked to have a photo shoot to get my author photo done tomorrow, and I didn't think a red nose or constant coughing would help things along. So maybe the gods heard my prayers and decided to make all my symptoms internal, and this is what I get. ;)

In the meantime, I have been resorting to my usual cold remedies:

1) vitamin C by the handful

2) peppermint and lemon tea (not together...)

3) soup

4) sleep

Wish me lots of energy for tomorrow! I'm hoping I'll feel well enough to still go to kung fu class before the photoshoot.
