My First Cold Of The Year...

...and it's only mid-January.

I use hand sanitizer faithfully...
I wash my hands with disinfectant soap often...
I avoid touching my face with my hands...
I drink glasses of Emergen-C...

The germs still found their way in and the symptoms began yesterday. Mountain cedar pollen is certainly not helping. I have a head cold on top of seasonal allergies.

One thing I'm thankful for is that it's not the flu. I'm hoping I don't develop any upper-respiratory infection. I'm drinking lots of fluids and staying in bed.

What truly sucks is we are having a few friends over for my best friend's birthday. I didn't want to cancel with such short notice, so I am tucked away in the bedroom with tissues and my phone. I could join them but I don't want to make anyone else sick and I'm really not up for it. I hear them jamming on their guitars, keyboards and ukelele but it's all good.
