Unrelenting Headache, Unrelenting Cough

Wednesday night, my headache started along with my worsening cough. I would take Motrin and my headache just laughed in the face of Motrin! I tried sleeping it off, but how can I sleep with this unrelenting cough? I tend to avoid things that happens or food I eat while or on the way to being sick. Tuesday, I had a chiropractor appointment. I wonder if I got adjusted wrong and it caused this horrible headache. I have appointment on Monday. If my headache does not disappear, I would probably stay away from a chiropractor for a while. Not because they did anything wrong. But because I just operate that way.

On another note, my husband bought me this shoes. It is so cute. However, it is not comfortable at all. My little toe on both sides hurts even seconds after putting it on. I cannot figure it out because the shoes appeared wide. I have pointy stiletto and I was expecting pain there, but there isn’t. I would probably return it, except it shipped from China. I surely don’t want to wear it again if it makes my feet hurt. I don’t want to ruin my feet for my other shoes. Like this one below for example.

I know it appeared uncomfortable, but I can stay on this shoes and not think about it for at least 5 hours. The creepers is my daughter’s. She loves shoes that are not tight nor high. She also wants to be taller than I am, but since she’s only an inch taller than I am and won’t wear heels, it is a given that I will be taller than her whenever we are together.

I also really like this Milwaukee Motorcycle Boots my husband bought me. It is heavy and quite unyielding. I thought it would be uncomfortable and painful to wear. It is turning out be my favorite casual shoes. It has about 2 inches of sole in it. I am the girl on the extreme right with the black shoes. I wore it so see G-Dragon concert in Houston on July 19. Took a day off work to drive down to Houston. My daughter came and took this picture of me and my Filipina friends who live in Houston. It was nice to hang out with them for a couple of hours before the concert. While this boots is heavy, it is comfortable once I got used to the weight of it. Here is a closer look at it:

Sick As A Dog

I do not know what that means. Tuesday, I woke up to a sore throat and a beginning of a phlegm build up. My dog Italia is also having skin problems. He's on steroids and other mess to keep the skin inflammation down. But we have to keep changing medicines because it would stop working after a while. I think it is related to the grass in our backyard, so we only let him out in the inner courtyard where there is no grass. The problem is his brother France only want to roll around in the grass, so Italia would play in the grass with him. The day after, he's all red and itchy and sick looking.

I am sick differently. I have productive cough and I would cough for minutes at a time. I cough my way from 2AM to 7AM this morning when I was trying to sleep. In fact, I only cough when I am trying to sleep, talk with someone, or in a room full of people. It is the most annoying thing. It is not bronchitis, yet. I went to the doctor on Thursday. I received codeine and an antibiotic. I have taken DayQail which works for a time. Then I found in my medicine cabinet a Mucinex DM. It expired a month ago, but it is good for 12 hours relief. I took it. It made me woozy but I survived a round of court hearings with minimal coughing. Same with the wedding. I took expired Mucinex DM 12 hour relief, a Motrin, 2 packets of Emergen-C and zycam. Went to a wedding and cough from 6PM until the wedding started. Did not cough from 9PM-11PM, then started again and couldn't stop for 8 hours. Yay.

I wore red to a wedding and my daughter wore roses and skulls. That's so Chana. My mommy of five gut was showing up in the dress. I shamelessly wore it anyway. With my favorite beige Nine West strapped stiletto. We stayed at the wedding til after 11. We dance and talk to people and have good time.

My daughter and I stopped by ALL ABOUT CHA located in 250 RANDOL MILL AVENUE, SUITE 140 – (817) 562-4222 in Southlake before coming home. They make us tea less than 30 minutes before closing. However, they serve it to us in a plastic cup when I know they have those cute tiny glass tea cup for service. How much time would it take to wash those tiny cups? I was watching the time. We plan to leave 5 minutes before closing. I cannot decide whether it would have been better if they said no to our buying tea at 11:26 PM than to give us subpar service when I know they could do better. Also, why put closing time at midnight if you only give crappy service to anyone coming in at half an hour before closing?

The upside is, they still steep the fruity oolong I like correctly. It was delicious. Even in the paper cups they gave us. Would I bother coming in there again when it is close to closing time? Probably not. The service made me feel like I was asking for a handout when I was paying full price. They are officially open. There was no call to make me feel like I was in somebody's house and was asking for a free tea.

I Do Not Like The New WordPress App Interface

I can't post pictures seamlessly like before. The image editing is iffy and awkward. It turned out like I only like to post if I can have pictures to go along with my words. But posting pictures in this new whatever-this-is is not working for me. I hope it gets better. I can't even figure out how to add notes to pictures. I am not tech-savvy. Maybe someone will make a YouTube video hack on this but for now, I am not a happy blogger.

Anyway, I think I caught cold/flu combo. I got this annoying back-throat drip and it is making me cough. I have a wedding to attend on Friday. I am either going to have to be drugged up or not attend. Who wants to hear someone coughing their way to a wedding? I hope there's a combo of drugs out there that would keep me from coughing for at least 4 hours. DayQuil is making it possible to attend hearings. But still, the coughing is annoying.

And now the picture is too big for the post. Ugh!
