Swallowing is Overrated

It’s funny how a few days can get away from you. I started this week feeling a bit under the weather, a slight sore throat in the morning that seemed to clear up as the day progressed. I figured it was allergy related, since southern California is so good with frequent and drastic weather changes (I usually don’t pay attention to 30+ degree weather variances, but in a 24 hour period? Really?) and I’m usually a bit sinus-y and uncomfortable when my body’s trying to adjust to “weather”. But Tuesday the sore throat was more pronounced and I started coughing. I went to rehearsal Tuesday night and my voice was there for a while, and then it really wasn’t. Yesterday was full on yuck–sore throat to the point I was having trouble swallowing, coughing up nasty bits, sinus pain, and stuffy head. So here we are today, and it’s more of the same. Add to that the fact that my period started this morning and you’re looking at one pissed off, pretty miserable, freaking uncomfortable person.

On a side note, I bought a basal thermometer to take my temps in the morning. I’ve been using it for about a week, just to start getting into the habit. It’s been interesting to see that my temps vary from 97.59 all the way down to 96.9 yesterday morning. And the damn thing beeps–10 times! I really think 5 is sufficient. Or give me a way to turn it off so that it doesn’t wake my girlfriend.
