Negative: So. Much. Kleenex. BF and I were both sick last weekend, and somehow I'm the lucky one who is still sick. We've gone through tons of kleenex and toilet paper, and my nose is completely raw.
Positive: Lack of appetite/energy. I've been pretty un-hungry and incredibly sluggish therefore, I haven't really gone to the grocery store or eaten out. I even had to blow off drinks with friends on Saturday because I'm a total snot factory. Sad, but thrifty.
Positive: Free Vitamin C! A friend of mine had bought this Emergen-C stuff because it's supposed to help with elasticity and connectivity on the muscles of people who work out a lot. Turns out, it tastes like pure evil. She could barely choke down a cup, and when she asked if I wanted it, I though how bad can it be? It is awful. Drinking it is like a punch in the mouth. BUT, it has 1000% RDA of vitamin C, and I'm too stuffed up to taste it! I've been guzzling this every morning, and yes, I'm still sick, but it can't really hurt anything. I'm also making an effort to eat up the other foods around the house that I don't really like--like that low-sodium soup.

All totaled, this springtime cold is actually rather frugal. It's a shame that I have to feel so lousy to save money, but it's nice to have a positive spin to put on things. I'll get back on track with more regular posting once my eyes/nose/ears/sinuses are back to normal.
