Under the weather with Seasonal Crud

Today was not a good day.  Both of us were under the weather at best, and sick with some bug at our worst.  That is about as bad as a rainy day.  We are both inside and underfoot.

Just for good measure, add in cranky, tired, and a tad whiny.  Sick isn’t our forte, I suppose.  Meals were make-do…we ate up the last of the 15 bean soup that we’d been working on out of the slow cooker, and then grabbed some cheap burgers from Checkers on our way home after going to the bank.  GM questioned whether our chicken orgy at KFC had resulted in us being sick, but none of the symptoms match a case of less-than-yummy-food.  It’s more like the Seasonal Crud.

What is Seasonal Crud, you ask?

It’s that mysterious malady that strikes us as days get shorter and daylight savings time is banished for the winter.  You may not be totally sick, but you ache, your nose is stuffy, you are tired, and just feel like CRUD.  You might have to tough out a week of it, a few days, or just a single day…but it hits us all.

So what cures this terrible disease?

Sunshine.  Laughter.  Good coffee.  COOKIES!!!!!!

Oh, and plenty of CHOCOLATE too!

Doesn’t chocolate cure about everything?
