Not a Fan

I slept under a fan this passed Sunday night and I'm still suffering the ill effects. I know there are some people who can't sleep without a fan running and truthfully, I envy them. But I get sick every time I sleep with a fan blowing on me. Every. Single. Time.

While the stuffy nose and sore throat came and went quickly, an ear ache is lingering- holding out til the very last possible moment to make me miserable. I've tried every last trick in the book I know to get rid of it, but it's not having any of it.

Yesterday we had a nice balmy 60 degree day and I went out in my shirt sleeves to do the critter chores with a sock hat on to keep my ears covered. It got a little warm  hot under the hat but I couldn't stand the slightest breeze in the sore ear.

I've heard (over and over) from various sources that sleeping under a fan doesn't cause illness. I guess my body wants to prove everyone wrong. Maybe I'll conduct a scientific experiment. Or maybe I'll just go hunt up the heating pad for this darned earache.

The high temp today is going to be 20 degrees colder than yesterday so I am not going to be so uncomfortable with the sock hat on. (There's always a bright side!)

  1. Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I am reading a book right now that has new tea recipes for illnesses. The library is an awesome source for those. I hope you feel better soon.
