~Computer problems and a silly poem~

I'm sorry I haven't been posting. Our computer got a bad virus and Phillip has been trying to fix it. Neither one of us can figure out how to post pics now. I'll keep working on it, and hopefully I can post some pics soon.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with an "inspiring" poem I wrote a few days ago when I had a BAD cold! =D
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I hate the common cold, don't you...?
You walk around feeling miserable and blue.
You try to breathe through your nose (pardon me as I rant and rave)
But you can't, so you have to leave your mouth open as wide as a cave. :O
You buy so many tissues that "Kleenex" goes up in their New York Stock
While you sit at home blowing your nose around the clock.
And you slather Vics salve underneath your nose
While your garbage can with wadded tissues overflows.
To try to breathe you sniff a saline solution
For you can't smell anything, not a rose nor smoke pollution.
You eat cough drops by the dozen, just like candy;
For you cough and your throat hurts...it doesn't feel too dandy.
You wash your hands 100 times a day
Hoping not to contaminate others and that this cold will go away.
Your eyes droop and your mouth hangs open as you walk around
Making one look very similar to a Basset Hound. (dog =)
You run for a tissue, blow your nose, throw it away and then...
You SNEEZE and start the WHOLE PROCESS AGAIN! ={
Oh, the things that we take for granted when we are well
But without a cold I wouldn't have had this "story-poem" to tell. =)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Please pray for our computer! It is a very BIG part of a missionary's life...and we really NEED it to work right! Thank you!

I'm sorry to hear about your computer troubles. I hope you are able to get it fixed quickly! I also hope that you are feeling better. I am sorry you were feeling so bad, but I enjoyed your little poem!

Thank the Lord for Vicks Vaporub! LOL! Cute poem.

I hope you are feeling better now, and that no one else catches the bug. Our family just came through a time of illness. The baby gave me a little scare, his cough sounded so vicious.

Hope the computer issues get resolved soon!

Your poem is entertaining even tho' there are no pictures. :-)
Dad stayed home from work yesterday with the flu. He was chilling, getting hot, had fever, nearly coughed his lungs out, and was very sick. He drug off to work this morning, tho'.
I am on my way to Cracker Barrel with Sherron Guinn, this morning. She has kept after me for months until I finally consented to take her. It about takes a stick of dynamite to get this fat, old, lady moving!
Dad put a new sound board in our computer, so now we can listen to video clips of Sophia and Isaiah again. I am sad your computer is on the blitz-that puts a BIG drag on one's life. Love you guys!
