Should have expected it, but I didn't...the post-travel head cold. I might feel physically wrecked on the first leg of a trip, but it seems like I always get sick once I'm home. Which, if you think about it, it better than getting sick while I'm gone... and it's just a cold, so it's not too horrible. Still...all I want to do is sleep, and I'm not getting any work done.

Better to get the winter cold out of the way now. In a couple of weeks, the Spouse Thingy and I plan on heading into SF, where I will spend a couple of days walking to rack up the 40 miles I wasn't able to do for the Avon Walk in July. I'm hoping the city will already be decorated for the holidays, because it would be spiffy to be out walking under some twinkling lights.

It will be fun!

In other news..or a February the Boy is again jumping into cold, cold water to raise funds for the Special Olympics. His team is doing a Super Marios Brother theme and he's set to jumo as Luigi, BUT, if he reaches his $2000 goal, he'll go as Princess Peach.

< -- Princess Peach

This has to happen!

In about 10 days (I'm not 100% sure of the exact date) one of his donors is going to win a Kindle Fire HD. For every $5 you donate, you get a shot at it! With the holidays coming, it's a chance to win a really sweet gift for yourself, or someone you want to make squeal with delight.

The money goes to a really good gives Special Olympians the things they need to compete, from equipment all the way to the costs associated with participation. But mostly...I want to see my kid dressed like Princess Peach...

It's ALL YOUR FAULT. I've not worked out how yet, but it's ALL YOUR FAULT! Woke with The Crud at 5:30am, and while I logically *know* that isn't how computer viruses work, somehow it just *has* to be ALL YOUR FAULT.
Or I shouldn't have been outside freezing my butt off watching meteors last night. Could be that, too.

Already donated to The Boy.

As for colds, I suggest you take zinc lozenges the very SECOND you get that "I'm getting a cold" feeling. They really DO keep the symptoms more manageable and they cut the duration of the sickness to only two or three days. Just one thing: You MUST take them with food or milk, otherwise you'll get nauseous. I keep them handy for the minute I get the "post-nasal-drip-warm-back-of-my-throat" sensation.
