They Will See Us Waving From Such Great Heights…

"I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned…"
 – Postal Service, “Such Great Heights”

I live in Southern New York State. It’s not exactly suburbia but I’m not in the middle of nowhere either. I’m literally right around the corner from where “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is filmed, 30 minutes from Times Square, and a hop, skip, & a jump near where the TV Series “Suburgatory” is set. It makes for an awesome summer with tons to do but in the winter well it’s the opposite. The weather here has been so ridiculous that my immune system finally surrendered. I have a cold. I am a miserable person when I’m sick. 

CJ, adorably, came over to my place last night and made me some soup. He put his arms around me and kissed me on the forehead. Poor thing…he kept thinking I was mad at him but I wasn’t. I was being quiet because I was sounding like Brad Garrett from “Everyone loves Raymond. ” I told him to stay up as long as he wanted when it came time for me to go to sleep, but no he curled up with me in bed and sang to me, “Such Great Heights” from the Postal Service as we drifted off to sleep. When he sings I know he’s happy. I’m so lucky…

I do feel better but being sick sucks. My nostrils are taking turns switching which one is stuffed or not. I’ve been trying to drink Theraflu & have tea w/ lime & honey. It’s working okay. Thank you Halls Defense cough drops too. FYI…Check Expiration Dates on Cough Drops. I didn't realize for 3 days I was eating expired cough drops. Only a few more hours at work…

What do you guys do when you’re sick? Do you have on all else fails backup plan?


  1. Dude I'm sick too! It freaking SUCKS so much. I've been sick since like last week. All I want to do is sleep and never move. I've been hopped up on Dayquil like no ones business, which means I probably shouldn't have been driving all week.. oh well!

    It's terrible. I've been trying to drink as much OJ as possible and eat decent foods, but sometimes my body just wants warming carbs like toast with butter so it can hibernate.

    Feel better dear! <3

  2. Awwww - what a good boy you have.


  3. I just usually chug the Dayquil and Nyquil to knock it out. Heh.
