Thank you. I feel better!

Thank you all for your well wishes. I had one doozie of a head cold this week. I came home from school every day and just plopped down! My head was so stuffy I couldn't breathe. My dear friend Beverly called me every night to check up on me!!! I even had Brittainy feeling badly for me and she drove over with some cold medicine! Rich was a good sport too. He ran out and did some errands for me. The other night the only thing I wanted for dinner was French Onion soup and he was a doll and got it for me.
I've reminded the kids all week to keep their hands away from their noses (I'll spare you the visual!) and to wash their hands a lot.
I got plenty of sleep this weekend and a lot of reading done. I'll be through with the last of the Twilight series soon. I'm trying to slow down so it was last!
I will try to get back to visiting today. I hope you didn't miss me too much!
take care,

Hi Dawn, so glad that you're feeling better, those winter colds are the worst, especially when you have to work every day. Enjoy the last Twilight book, I was so sad to see them end!

Hi, Dawn! So very glad to hear you're on the mend! Colds this season have be so bad--the linger so. My hubby had a cold lately, and it took a good two weeks before he was feeling anywhere near better. So glad you are! Happy Days as you get back on track. ((HUGS)) Oh, if you get a chance, do stop by--I'm having a fun Valentine Giveaway this week! :o)

I just knew I was going to see your smiling face here this morning. Your nose does look a little red though. ;-)

Good Morning Dawn, Hurrah!!! you're feeling better. I am so happy now. I missed you Dawn. I'm glad everyone was there for you. We need that kind of love when we are sick. I have several books already for my knee replacement on my right knee. Reading is my salvation when I'm down
One week from today is the dreaded day. I know I will be fine. It's just that the recovery is loooong.

Have a great day and be well.

I was wondering why you were not doing anything for pink Saturday. Now I know. Im so sorry that you were sick. If I lived closer, I would have made you that french onion soup with some toasted rye bread and butter...... My poor hubby has been sick too and finally yesterday went to the er and they think its pnumonia. They started him on the zithromax right then and there. Of course being a mans, man, hes off to work today as usual. Glad your back in bloggville, I do read and missed you. Darrell

Well, I did miss you a GREAT DEAL! I'm happy to hear that you're back to being YOU. Thank goodness you had a book to enjoy; that helps. Your sweet hubby did a good job too. Now stop breathing, and you won't catch any more colds. Isn't teaching wonderful?

Hi Dawn,
I missed you lots!
Sorry you have been sick. I've had a head cold too, but at least I didn't have to go to work, so I kept blogging!

Hope you got yours behind you! Good to see you posting again,

Hi Dawn
I am so happy to see you and hear ou are feeling better. *hugs*. I know there is a nasty bit of it going around here there and everywhere and it likes to come back too so be careful with the washing and blowing stuff.

At least you had something good to read!
Keep feeling good and how nice that you had your onion soup too.
