sore throats are for the birds

a little hot tea at 7 am because my throat hurts
You know that old saying, "If you think you have big problems, trying walking a day in tight shoes"? Or something like that. I tried to Google it, but all I got was an essay on how awful TOMS are and some info on feet binding practices... We'll make do with my version. Basically, I can't get this phrase out of my head, except I've changed it a little. 

It goes, "Try doing anything - ANYTHING - with a sore throat. Miserable." Even sleep can't conquer this sore throat. Like, my throat decided to get extra sore at 6 am and my body was all, OK! We're up!, so I had a cough drop and took a shower, had another cough drop and made some hot tea, had another cough drop and started writing this blog post. Last night, I began training for my FIRST and ONLY half marathon. A whopping 2 miles on the treadmill. As I sit here, the next morning, do you know what I remember from the workout? That my throat hurt.. I need to figure out my flat tire situation (oh yeah. I got a flat tire on the way home from work yesterday. Woo.) and how in the heck I'm gonna raise $500 by April 25th for St. Jude and a whole slew of other things, but I just don't care about any of it because my throat hurts. 

I wish I had made a resolution to drink more hot tea because I would be kicking that resolution's ask. Also, I think I'm ready to do something different with my hair. I don't think I'll do the rawther fashionable bob that's trending right now, but I'm thinking it's high-time I get a real, honest-to-beauty-parlor hair cut style. Now accepting ideas and recommendations, local friends!

Side Note: Special thanks to Cassie B for this wondermous "WANDERER" sign I pointed out at a random festival booth in Nashville, TN when I visited and she remembered and found for me for Christmas. ♥

PS. We have holiday cards to send out. I printed 50 of the little suckers so they will get mailed. ...I'm just not promising when they will get mailed.

  1. Ugh sore throats are the worst. I found the Burt's Bees cough drops to be effective (the only ones at Target that actually had honey in them). I think they taste kind of crazy, but last winter I was sick all of the time, and they were all that helped in the cough drop department. Good luck to you! I had a dream that I put my hair in a ponytail and then cut it off.. like I didn't know what I was doing. I was shocked. Then I took the ponytail out... shook my hair like a goddess and bam... the wavy bob. - I have no idea. XO -Alexandra
