Cough Into Your Elbow

It seems a side-effect of my busy weekend is the start of a chest cold.  I felt to coming on last night, coughing with a rattly feeling just below my throat.


Spring break starts at 3:30 pm on Friday, and I have plans!  I do not have time to catch a nasty cold.  Besides, a four-schools-in-four-states-in-four-days road trip will be supremely unfun if I am sneezy and coughing.

So for the rest of this week, I'll push vitamin C, stay hydrated, and get as much rest as I can.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that I'm not really getting a cold, that it's just a minor inconvenience.

And I'll cough into my elbow so the rest of my family doesn't fall victim.


  1. The new fangled cough into your elbow thing...Seems like a good idea,how did we never know that when we were young. I guess our immune systems were stronger- we also drank from hoses and we were tough because we rode in the back of pick ups and never wore seatbelts. I am sure coughing into our elbows is simply the needed safety upgrade. May the wellness be with you.

  2. I sure hope you're feeling better soon! I would hate for you to not enjoy this bittersweet time of beginning to look at schools with your child.
