Where is Spring?

March 21, 2013

Spring has sprung, but somehow didn't bring with it the normal warmer weather and sunny days. I think we've been fooled and winter has decided to stick around for a bit longer. With all the sudden changes in temperature and conditions, from snow to sunny & 68 degrees, sickness has been on the rise in our apartment. Yesterday, Pete came down with a nasty something or other, and today I ended up with the same thing. There are sore throats, runny noses, congested heads, and cold chills. So the last handful of hours have been spent wrapped up in layers of clothing, under piles of blankets on the couch. The floor is covered with empty throat lozenge wrappers and giant snowballs of tissues. We've been drinking liquids all day and hoping that this little unwanted visitor leaves soon. Hot green tea with blueberry & acai is our treatment method for tonight. Let's hope it helps!
