3rd Times a Charm

I have another cold. If you know me in any way you will realize that I get every cold that comes within a 90 mile radius. This is the third cold/sinus infection I have had this summer and I am over being sick. I am going to the beach for Labor Day weekend and I better be on the mend by then. Random people will offer suggestions on how to ward of colds (echinacea, zinc, vitamin C, voodoo), but the fact remains that I am just going to have a cold forever. The sad thing is that I made a (seemingly) delicious cabbage beef soup yesterday in my crockpot, but by the time I got home last night my sense of smell was gone. I tasted NOTHING. It looked really good though. I comfort myself with the knowledge that soup always tastes better the second day.

Maybe you could freeze the soup until you get your sense of smell/taste back. :) It's definitely better the 2nd, 3rd, 4th day!

Every time I get a cold I comfort myself by saying that's one more cold I'll never catch again. Because there are supposedly like 200 different colds and you can only get each one once. Maybe by the time you're in your 40's you will have had them all.
