With a boatload of OTC meds on board last night I managed to sleep well enough, but today is not going well. There's the low grade grinding headache. There's the ever-present sinus drainage, which I know is just dyin' to set up shop in my lungs. There's the swollen lymph nodes under the jaw...and the partially obstructed eustachian tubes, so my ears don't want to stay equalized.
Oh to add insult to this cold, the weather is supposed to get ugly again starting late tonight/tomorrow, with a massive wet cold front booming in from Canada. Current long range

Last time, they guessed wrong and we didn't get the ice as it was a degree too warm. I don't know if we will be so lucky this go-round. If we do get the ice badly, it's going to mean DH and friend can't get to the Larue/Aimpoint event this weekend, and the Monkeys and I cannot make it to the Santa Paws/dog adoption events. I really hate leaving my friends in the lurch for the adoption--we were excited to be going, and they were counting on us to help manage the hounds for the adoption side of the event.
DH says he will spend the weekend/evenings in the garage working on stuff. I suspect I will crash early and try to sleep this thing off. Meanwhile, since Barkley is getting such good face-time on his driver Brigid's blog, I thought I would leave y'all with a recent picture of my new dishwasher.
