An Ugly Friday

Ugh. I'm battling a case of sinusitis that seems to have come on me in the blink of an eye. One minute I'm fine, the next my sinuses are inflamed. My head feels like a balloon, and I'm coughing and blowing my nose every three seconds. I've had this before, twice actually, since moving to Bend. And we've had some really smokey days here because of a fire in Sisters. So between the fire, the pollen floating around during the warmer weather, and the general dryness of climate, I'm not surprised I can't breathe.

I have today planned as a writing day, so I'm going to ignore the impulse to go back to bed and instead sit in the shower for a while. Maybe the steam will help. Then, writing, writing, and more writing. 

Hope your Friday goes better than mine.

OH no! I'm sorry you're feeling so ruff. I hope you feel better and don't lose the weekend to sickness too.

Thanks, Charity. Unfortunately, though my intentions were good, I got nothing done. Instead, I slept, then used compresses and steam to try to get my sinus pressure to ease. It somewhat worked. I'm feeling better today, but I'm still not a hundred percent. And now I'm behind on work! UGH. But it could be worse. It's just a sinus problem, no other aches or pains. :)
