I’m still sick with cold so I look and feel awful. Yesterday I stayed in my pjs all day. I’m taking dayquil, nyquil, etc decongestants and lots of orange juice and water. I feel awful. I tried to go to my friend’s Christmas brunch today. I showed up but felt so miserable that I left not too long after I arrived. I tried the cat trick of making myself look pretty so I’d feel better. (cat trick: cats groom themselves for many reasons, including to feel good. If they’re not grooming themselves, they’re not feeling well.) I really like these colors, I just need to perfect this look.
