I am so FRUSTRATED!!!!!!

I'm still sick as a dog, but now my "cold" has progressed to the point where I think I have a sinus infection (intense headache? check, rainbow colored boogies? check, ran through two boxes of tissues in a week? check). Therefore, I haven't been to the gym in a week. It's really driving me crazy, because I want to get on the elliptical, I want to go running, I want to get back to my spin class. It's also affecting my work. I have so much to get done in the two weeks before I leave for Christmas break, but I seem to have the attention span of a chipmunk (well, wouldn't you be the same way if you were either blowing your nose or coughing every 90 seconds?) I have an appointment with my PCP tomorrow, where hopefully she will bless me with a script for a Zpac, my lovely $10 cure all antibiotic. I guess when you are taking better care of yourself, much more than you have in a decade, you don't expect to be knocked completely flat on your butt by something like a sinus infection :(

One of my only little shining lights of happiness coming out of this misery (I'm waiting the hour before it's okay to take some excedrin again) is that it's clementine season... and I LOOOOOOOOVE clementines. It makes me especially sad when they are 1) ridiculously expensive or 2) you buy a crate only to find that there are four at the bottom that are mushy. But I love them because they are portable, sweet, juicy and delicious. Kroger had a great sale on them this past week, so go buy yourself a crate ASAP and enjoy. Build up that Vitamin C so you don't get sick like me :)

I hope you feel well soon!

Here's hoping you have your zpak by now and are seriously on the mend!

I love clementines, too, but I can't eat a whole crate before they go bad. Maybe I'll buy one and take half to the office.

Sorry to hear you are still sick. Hope you feel better.

I can honestly say that I have never tasted a clementine. In fact, I had to google it to see what it looks like. Wow, I am really uncultured. ;)

Wow… I’m so sorry you are still sick. Sinus infections suck and I know how draining they can be, especially with the inability to sleep at night. Did you get your Zpac? You also might want to try a neti pot and ask for steroid nose spray; those are my lifesavers.

I’ve never had a Clementine, I’d have to get one next time I’m at publix. I am feasting on bags of fresh oranges from my tree at my childhood home. Nathan and I went through what we brought up from Thanksgiving so quickly that we asked my mom to bring up some when she visited last weekend. Citrus… mmmmmm….

So last paper was just turned in (yay!). I shall be a better MizFit Matchup Partner from now till the next finals time. Promise! 

Ugh. Sinus infections suck! Several years ago, I had one over Christmas, and I was miserable (and my mood made my entire family miserable). So here's to your Zpac working its magic, and to your Clementines boosting your immunity!! BTW, I don't know how you can eat a whole crate of them, even if they are yummy. That's a lot of citrus! = )
