Meanwhile, I've been feeling like CRUD lately: hacking cough, plugged up sinuses, scratchy throat and raspy voice (..and not a sexy voice either!) I've been chugging down Children's Triaminic Nighttime Cold and Cough, but I doesn't seem to help. Besides, I'm only depleting the supply on hand that might be needed for the kids someday. It's quite a bummer when you have to read your "What's Safe to Take?" list over and over again to be sure nothing is harming the pregnancy.
So, I went off on a mission tonight to get me some Benedryl, Actifed, Sudafed, Clor-Trimeton...anything on my safe list. I came home with Sudafed - Severe Cold. So far (only 2 hours into it) my cough still lingers and my ear still feels plugged up. In fact, earlier today at work, my ear sort of "popped". Youch! Please don't let this turn into an ear infection!!! So, I'm waiting to see if this miracle OTC works or not. Just a little relief is all I want.
So, I'm on my way back home listening to Delilah's Sappy Love songs, when a little girl called in requesting Butterfly Kisses to be played. Oh no! I haven't heard that song since my Dad and I danced it at my wedding. Certainly I've gotten over that "tugs at your heartstrings" feeling after all these years!? No such luck. I was about a mile and a half from home when I had to drive through glazed-over, drippy eyeballs to get home safely. And "Mini Pearl" is not yet equipped enough to have tissue at my fingertips. So, I came home a bit moist on my shirt sleeves. Darn hormones!
Take a peek at the lyrics to Bob Carlisle's song, Butterfly Kisses. It might just get you!
