Here's something I forgot - today our Christmas tree is featured on Cheryl St. John's Christmas Tree Tour. It's a really fun thing she does over there, and you can scroll around and find all sorts of beautiful trees and read about different traditions.
Robitussin at regular intervals does seem to help a lot, and I also have in a supply of honey, cough drops, and vicks. I didn't make it to the pharmacy today, but this seems to be holding me for now.
Now I'm off to watch a few episodes of Hearts and Bones. :-)
