So, I have now been sick for 3 weeks and counting. I've just decided that I'm never going to be better. Once I decided that, it made it slightly easier to move on with my life. Well, I don't know if I actually moved on since I have been laying on the couch all day. Anyway, this last week I have moved into the coughing phase of this lovely cold. Because of that, I have been taking cough syrup. I usually avoid cough syrup at all costs because it makes me feel like I am 5 years old. I have a memory as a child of my mom and dad both administering cough syrup to me and practically having to pin me down to get me to take it. Unfortunately, as an adult, I still get a major gag reflex, have to have a huge glass of water, and something to eat to wash down all remnants of the taste of the cough syrup. Maybe I'll never grow up!
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
