Y'all are going to have to keep me company again.
I've got this cold with a most annoying cough that starts just as I'm going to sleep, and lasts for hours.
You know the kind I'm talking about? The one where the tickle in the back of your throat gets overwhelming, and you cough and cough until you're blue in the face and tears are streaming out of your eyes?
Yep. That's the one.
I'm not getting much sympathy on the home front.
My dh is just not bothered by colds at all. If he's congested, he simply sleeps with his mouth open and moves on. Me? I have to be completely clear before I can even think about sleeping. It's a claustrophobic sort of thing.
Coughing? Doesn't seem to touch him as much. A few coughs and he's through. Me? I cough and cough for HOURS until I'm an incoherent mess, begging God to just LET ME SLEEP.
So here I am at the computer, trusty rice/spinach/tomato/cayenne pepper snack at the ready, coughing up a storm and spending time with all of you.
My thoughts right now (other than Dear God let me sleep!) are of Kristen from Small Treasures, who I assume received some form of rather nasty input on her blog which caused her to shut it down completely. I am so saddened by it. Saddened that she would feel the need to shut it down, and saddened that some person (I assume) went out of his/her way to sound cruel/threatening/evil and make her want to shut it down.
Catholic Moms banding together on the internet must be making someone very unhappy.
I find myself shocked that someone would go out of their way to be ugly (and again, I don't know any details. I'm just speculating and piecing together what I've seen elsewhere... and coughing. A heck of a lot of coughing)... and then find myself shocked again that I would be shocked. After what I've seen out there in cyberspace recently -- the hatred, the darkness, and the evil being spouted off -- I am reminded that as horrible as it gets.... Jesus wins in the end. I would do well to remember that.
Now off I go to cough my head off.
