Thought it was weight loss, but it's snot.

The bug going around work starts out as a chest/coughing thing and quickly morphs into a sinus thing.  It lasts about ten days, and then you sit up in bed and your head drains into your throat and you're right as rain.
I caught it last week Wednesday.
By the weekend, I was curled up with a pallet of tissues and a blankie.

This morning, I weighed in on the WiiFit.
It told me I'd lost 7 pounds.
The Husband quickly observed, "Yeah, you did.  It was 7 pounds of mucus."

(Lest you worry, the real reason for the difference was moving the Balance Board from the concrete basement floor onto squishy carpeting.)
(But, see, that's not as funny.)

Oh, lucky me.
~I~ got bronchitis.
Also not as funny.

Sometimes,as long as you can take the day off without feeling too guilty, it is rather soothing to be at home sick, wrapped in blankie, on couch sleeping and watching t.v. and drinking tea and pop. Kinda when you were a kid and got to stay home from school.

P.S. good one, Thumper.

You're right. Bronchitis sucks snot...

Hope you feel better soon.

Our house just got over the piggy flu so I'm fresh out of home made chicken soup, or I'd offer to send some.

Sorry to hear you got bronchitis, that's an every winter thing here so I know what you're going thru.

Oh, the chicken flew the coop here so no chicken soup too.
