Yep, my day is finally here...
My husband first was battling that stupid sinus cold. At one point, he thought he had a serious toothache so I made him a dentist appt. which then he was told he had a sinus infection. It was really his cold that was a sinus cold that was making his mouth hurt horribly.
Then it just seemed everyone around me was getting sick with this sinus cold, or just a head cold in general. My daughter and I were fortunate. I kept up with my whole "knocking on wood" bit as if that was really going to keep me from getting sick. Yeah, lets knock on a piece of wood. That'll help me from getting this cold that is spreading around me. Suuuure!
Weeks went by and my hubby started to get better and then in a matter of days it all came back along with a horrible cough. One that kept waking me up in the middle of the night. It wasn't that subtle cough either.
So here we are today. My daughter and I have now been subjected to the same ol' cold everyone else has been dealing with. I knew our time was going to run out. I'm sure it has to do with the fact that we went to the snow and played in that cold while sledding or the fact that I share the same bed with my hubby while he was hacking up a lung, or even the fact that I pushed the same cart that many other coughing, runny nose, hand to nose wiping individuals just pushed, although I make a point every time I return home to wash my hands. Even though I felt compelled to "knock on wood", it didn't help.
So let this be a lesson to all you "knocking on wood" individuals. It doesn't work!!
