When It Rains...

I've been coughing for about 5 days. With the upcoming weekend, I figured I'd better head to the doctor just in case it was something more severe than a cough. And I was diagnosed with bronchitis. So, these will be my friends for the next few days.


And then on the way home an Overdrive light started flashing in my van. As I backed into the driveway I noticed a trail of fluid in front of me. And now there's a puddle beneath my van. Transmission fluid, I think. Verne's out of town until tomorrow. Ughhh...



Thankfully, I made it home safe and sound.

Tracy, I hope you feel better soon. There is nothing worse than dealing with car issues when your husband is out of town!

Bless your heart! I hate having car trouble when JR is out of town ... such a sinking feeling. I'm so glad your van got you home safe and sound before it decided to be sick, too! Praying it's not a major fix.

And I hope you feel better soon. A recent discovery: In my opinion lemonade masks that awful taste of Mucinex better than anything I've tried. Hugs to you!

I'm so sorry you're under the weather. Bronchitis is not a friendly little visitor! (((hug)))

Hope the dinner went smooth and delish with Jon over the other night.

Car trouble is always worse when hubby's away. I know that. Personally. sigh.

I sure hope you feel better! I'm still trying get over a nasty cold/cough thing myself. It certainly takes it out of you!

Glad you made it home. There are few things that I hate more than car trouble - I always feel so helpless.

Thanks for sharing those recipes in your previous post. I've been looking for some more crockpot meals -- and those picnic buns look heavenly! I will definitely let you know when I try them :o)

Hope you get better, I myself woke up with a sore throat this morning and hope it doesn't get worse. My husband and daughter are getting over being sick. It's that time of year!

Ugh is right. That is the worst. Hope you're feeling better today!

You getting plenty of rest? Drinking lots of water and chicken broth? Fluffing your pillows at necessary intervals? Dabbing your nosie wosie with lotion infused tissues? Taking your medicine as directed?

Praying you'll feel better soon.
