My bad premonition was right!

All the pictures were taken 4 years ago today! It was the 12/16, on a Sunday.
Fionn is so small! I see, he is 1 year old. No wonder he is small.

As is sometimes the case, the photos have nothing to do with the content of this blog.
The bad premonition I mentioned in the title is that I’ve had a bit of a cold for the past few days.

In fact, I could have predicted this already.
The glamping tent we were staying in on Sunday at Ashizuri Terme was equipped with air conditioning and heating that automatically adjusts the temperature. While we were sleeping, it was very cold outside, so the heating was strong and warm, but there was no humidifier.

You know what happens when the heat is on without a humidifier?
That’s right! By the time I woke up in the middle of the night, my throat was parched. Usually when I use the heating in my bedroom when I go to bed, I make sure the humidifier is running at full blast to keep the humidity at 55-60%.
That’s how sensitive my skin and throat are to dryness.

I mean, what is this unintelligible dish? And the way it’s arranged! LOL! Did I make it?

And sure enough, when I woke up the next morning, my throat was irritated, so I gargled a lot and had some honey and took care of it,
but it kept bothering me, and then last night it suddenly got really cold. I didn’t mind turning off the heater and humidifier on a timer when I went to bed, but I woke up early in the morning cold and only turned on the heater in my sleep, and when I woke up the room was extremely dry again and my throat died!

My throat was not only extremely sore but also irritated, and my nose started to run.
But you know, I always deal with the beginning of a cold in my own way. In the evening, my joints were getting a little ticklish, so I thought I might have a fever. I took a lot of vitamins with a C1000 drink I had bought, taken honey, drank a lot of hot water and went to bed anyway! When I woke up, I was

feeling much better.
My fever was normal at 36.8 degrees Celsius or so, so I decided to go back to work as usual.

This happens almost every time, but if I do get a fever, it usually goes away overnight (though it can be as high as 39 degrees Celsius that one night) and returns to normal the next day, much to Eme’s surprise. Moreover, when I catch a cold like this, I usually have a hunch that I’m going to catch a cold if I stay here. So if I avoid such a situation, I almost never catch a cold, or at least once a year.

So, my bad premonition was right: I caught a cold.
I know it is not corona because I caught a cold at such a predictable time, but when I cough or something, people might think, “Oh, no? Does she have corona?” I thought it was so annoying.

Health is important.
Emmet and Fionn don’t have a scratchy throat even if they sleep in such a dry room. I wonder if it’s their constitution.

I’ve been playing this CD 4 years ago too! LOL!
The NEW KIDS Christmas CD has been a staple of mine for about 30 years! (And I took the same picture last year! LOL)
I know it was annoying now that I think about it, but I gave this CD for Christmas to my boyfriend at the time when we were dating in the
eighth grade!
