Still Sick
I think I'm starting to crawl out of the hole that is my miserable cold. It's ridiculous that a cold can knock me on my tuchis this hard. And really unfair, too. But I don't enjoy wheezing. So there. So I missed Cirque du Soleil on Wednesday because I couldn't stop coughing. And I also did something drastic this week.

...

I cancelled my shabbos guests. For me, that's huge. And I feel really awful about it, too, but then again, no one needs this cough and exhaustion and all that. And one of my would-have-beem-guests is pregnant, so that just wouldn't have been fair to her at all. So there you go. I don't know which is more devastating... missing Cirque du Soleil or cancelling shabbos guests... I think it's cancelling shabbos guests, though. Le Sigh.

So we'll have a quiet shabbos in which Seth figures dinner out instead of me. No idea what will happen for lunch tomorrow, but I'm certain we'll figure that out as well. So yeah.

Ick...I'm sorry you had to cancel your Shabbos plans, but hopefully you'll be feeling better soon.

Here's hoping. Theoretically, this is just a cold, but BOY does my throat hurt. And oy! The coughing!

Bleah...it occurs to me that my favorite throat drops aren't kosher otherwise I'd highly recommend them.

I know how much the 'not being able to breathe' aspect of coughing all the time just plain sucks. Enjoy your rest this weekend and hopefully you won't be suffering from this for too long.

yes, it does so suck, but nothing a lot of sleep won't fix. Oh, wait...when am I going to get a lot of sleep?

What are your favorite throat drops? I'm sucking on a halls right now which is only mildly disgusting for once.

My current favorite is Robitussin Honey Lemon Tea. Throat drops are the only thing that I still eat with citrus in them these days, mostly because the 'honey and lemon' combo seem to work so well.

You know, it's kind of sad when you can compare various kinds of throat drops on their merits. Maybe I should add a vitamin C pill to my multivitamin or something...

I am going to be in your neighborhood Sunday for unrelated reasons, and unless you stop me I shall descend upon you briefly with Cirque du Soleil videos. It ain't live, but it's a lot of fun anyway.

Whoo hoo! Our Sunday plans got cancelled, so we'll be around much of the day (though we have to go buy a washer/dryer sometime during the day).

What time do you think you're going to be around? Are YOU up to being out and about??
pocketnaomi From: pocketnaomi Date: June 17th, 2005 04:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'd better be by Sunday; I have to go back to work on Monday morning. So Sunday I'm testingmyself very gently by going to an open house for the cohousing community we're in love with, on 13th street. It's probably sometime midafternoon, but I am not sure exactly when yet; the apartment owner said she'd call me when she heard from her realtor what time they were setting the open house. Call me late Saturnday night, after Shabbat, or Sunday morning, to figure out timing?

don't think I have your home phone number. But I think you've got ours.
pocketnaomi From: pocketnaomi Date: June 17th, 2005 04:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, but I'm less picky about the details of when Shabbat ends than you are. I never try to call the Felds on Friday afternoon or Saturday night, either; I make them call me, because they won't accidentally mess up our timing, and we might mess up theirs. I do have your email; I'll send the phone number privately in a second.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 17th, 2005 04:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just FYI, you won't mess up my timing. I'm accutely aware of the time toward the end of shabbos this time of year. I know the exact instant I can pick up the phone. Seriously. If you accidentally called a few minutes before that, it's okay, I just wouldn't have answered the phone.

(And further FYI, today you can call until 8:18 and tomorrow you can call after 9:21)

pocketnaomi From: pocketnaomi Date: June 17th, 2005 04:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Okay. I did send you a phone number already, but if I haven't heard from you by ten tomorrow night I'll call you.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 17th, 2005 04:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
got the number. will try to call Sat. night. (only obstacle is whether I remember to)
pocketnaomi From: pocketnaomi Date: June 17th, 2005 04:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
P.S. I'm not going to be stupid about going out if I can't -- if Manny doesn't think I'm up to it (and he's a pretty good judge of my condition by now) I will send *him* with videos. One of us, at least, should go to that open house anyhow. But I suspect I'll be enough better by then to take a few hours quietly out of the house.

So sorry you're still so afflicted.

And I can understand the cancelled guests feeling worse, because it's something you usually do, rather than an unusual event undone.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 17th, 2005 03:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
yick. I'll be fine. This IS theoretically just a cold. But the first night I had it, I had a fever, which was just ridiculous. Colds aren't supposed to have fevers, darnit! (and though I can be stoic about a lot of things, I'm a HUGE, HUGE baby when I have a fever)

I'm sorry you're sick and had to miss out on both the show and the guests. Getting healthy has to come first, though. I hope it comes quickly.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 17th, 2005 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, I know. And fortunately, this is "just a cold" so it should go away. I just HATE HATE HATE not being able to breathe!
